    Misc Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Influitive (San Francisco, CA (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Email, Phone Call, On Site. I dealt with one of their VP's who obviously negotiated his way to that title. He was in no way close to the calibre of person you would expect from an executive. I think anyone who wants to have the arrogance and self-fellating nature of an executive, should take the bad with the good and have the fortitude to follow up with candidates to hand out the bad news. To be clear, I'm saying they didin't posess the common decency to follow up with the unsuccessful candidates after the interview to let them know they didn't get the position. In fact they reposted the job ad the next day and just kind kind of hoped the old candidates would go away. Rejection is part of the hiring process, any candidate knows that, but not even sending an email to let them know their candidacy wasn't successful does not fit with the portrait painted by these other (suspicious) reviews.

    Influitive Response

    Oct. 20, 2015 – VP Talent

    I'm terribly sorry that you were treated so disrespectfully, the process you describe here does not come close to the minimum experience that we aim to deliver to every candidate. We believe strongly that each candidate who invests time and energy in getting to know us deserves a prompt reply regardless of whether they earn a role on our team. Not knowing who you are I can't comment on specifically what happened, but I imagine there was a miscommunication in terms of who was to contact you, or that in the heat of everything going on at Influitive these days we simply dropped the ball. I'm sorry, and we're taking steps to make it far less likely to happen to future candidates.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Influitive (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    I had a very positive experience with Influitive. I applied via employee referral, and had a screening call with HR, two days later. The person I spoke with was my primary point of contact during the whole experience, and she was very nice, and made sure I was always kept in the loop. The second interview was scheduled for that same week, and I met with one of the Senior Consultants & the VP of Professional Services. It was very conversational, and really helped me understand the role. The questions were pretty standard, and nothing unexpected. I then completed a technical exercise mimicking the community engagement aspect of the role, and was told I would get a chance to present it to the rest of the team. However, this didn’t happen and I was notified about a week later that they would be making an offer to someone else. I can tell just from interviewing that they have a great culture, and really make sure people feel valued!

    Marketing and Product Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Influitive (Home (Democratic Republic of Congo)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Was fairly smooth, two interviewers from the Marketing department whom were very kind and also helpful to answer questions. They were kind enough to actually ask if you would enjoy the job, because they want someone who is passionate, not just one that wants a job. They care about the intern like an employee and I found that interesting.

    Sales Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Influitive (Toronto, ON) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Phone screen first and then got scheduled for 4 1:1 interviews (in person and through video conference). All of the interviewers were friendly and professional. Mostly questions around my experience and past projects but also around hypothetical scenarios ( to see my reasoning). I didn't get an offer but they called with feedback after the interviews (strong points vs points of concern - super helpful from my perspective).
    Bottom line: the interview process was managed professionally and the people were friendly. It seems they've got a strong culture as well.

    Interview

    Went through my school's website portal to find the job. Got matched for an interview and showed them my previous work. I related my previous work to what the current job description asked for and my interviewer was impressed. It was a pretty small team at the time, so any marketing experience helped a lot in the process.

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Influitive (Toronto, ON) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Took about 3 weeks from beginning to end. Good experience, Initially had a phone screen, met with the team of people I would potentially work with. Took just over 1.5 hours for the in person interview. The email pre-interview mentioned a potential assessment but that did not take place. The let down was receiving an email a day after my interview to schedule a phone call (What they refer to as a sync up) the following week to tell me I did not get the job. I think it would have been nice to know right away, maybe in that email instead of having to wait so many days. Scheduling a call can sometimes be misleading as to if it will be a call with an offer or feedback (Minimizing the wait time for this call is beneficial to the candidate). That being said, the final call was very professional, one with great feedback and very well managed. Influitive is a company that I admire and one that I think has a great culture. That talent team really invests in the candidate experience.
