    Business Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Konrad Group (New York, NY (US)) in December-2017.

    Interview

    I reached out to the team on LinkedIn after which we had a phone interview which seemed to have gone really well. On the phone interview itself, they told me to come to the office for an in-person interview. They didn't send me a reply for almost 2 weeks after me emailing them about the interview. After 2 weeks I got a reply saying that I could come next week - without a timing or a day. When I asked them they eventually never replied even though I emailed them thrice in the next three weeks.

    UI/User Experience Designer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    While I did not get an offer at the New York office, I had a very professionally rewarding interview with the experience director.

    A quick phone screen later I was invited to the office for an in-person meeting with the director. As someone well over a decade her senior, I was very impressed by her demeanor: warm, poised and extremely intellectual. She asked insightful questions relevant to my passion, drive and life takeaways prior to my career change, and was genuinely interested in learning more about me as a person rather than just a candidate for a design position.

    I was further invited back for a third round of design exercise that took place at the office for a full day - it was a beautiful space! A week later I received a rejection but was offered continual mentorship. The director also gave me detailed notes on areas of improvement and coached me through my subsequent rounds of iterations as a personal favor.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Konrad Group (New York, NY (US)) in February-2018.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a senior UI/UX designer who is very kind and easygoing. The interview process is very relaxed and went around 50 mins. Most of the time talked about my previous work experience and cases.
    Even I didn't get an offer, I got some feedbacks by following up, which is kind.

    User Experience Design Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Konrad Group (New York, NY (US)) in March-2018.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume, cover letter, website, and a quick paragraph of what UX design means to me. I was asked for a phone interview a week later with a senior UX designer. The phone call was quick and brief, with pretty standard questions. During the phone interview, the senior UX designer offered me a 2-day design challenge, of which she sent the brief to me two days before the scheduled 45 minute remote presentation. I worked really hard on the design challenge and went above and beyond what was asked for, but my interviewer (same as the phone interviewer) seemed pretty disinterested during the presentation. There wasn't much feedback, but I didn't end up getting the job without knowing a particular reason like lack of thoroughness or any other big problems.

    Design Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    The creative lead reached out to me after seeing my work at my masters exhibit. The office is beautiful and spacious in the heart of Soho, and upon arrival I was given a detailed explanation of their company, strategy and mission by the director. I have been talking to a couple other agencies and Konrad Group's interview process struck me as the most genuine and positive ..... even though I didn't get an offer.

    I was asked some standard interview questions about my work and previous experiences. What I most liked was how she asked me about my personal philosophies about ..... not only design, but career motivations and social impacts of technology. The vibe was professional but approachable.

    Within the week I returned for a full day design challenge and met the rest of the team who were all very friendly. I was given some really insightful feedback during the white-boarding session and helpful pointers at the end on how my presentation could be improved. The challenge was very stressful and I barely finished .... really puts time management skills to the test!!

    I never write glassdoor reviews because who has time for that... but their interview process was very positive - especially for an intern position relative to other agencies - that I think it's worth a mention.

    The whole process took 2 weeks.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Konrad Group (Toronto, ON) in August-2017.

    Interview

    Met with an HR guy and 2 technical directors. Very nice people and asked questions about my resume and culture fit, but nothing too technical. Then I was sent a project to complete at home, to populate a front end given a JSON API and add some features. Took me a couple days, but after submitting I did not hear back from them for a week. When they replied, I was asked to come in to meet their CTO a week later. Had a similar style interview with him, but nothing too technical. He was very focused on figuring out what I was best at/most comfortable with. Afterwards, did not hear back from them for a week. Followed up afterwards and was told that they were not going to move forward with my application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Konrad Group.

    Interview

    Like one of the other reviewers said, I also interviewed with a C-level executive. He was rude. No eye contact, constantly checking his phone and restlessly looking out the window, acted like he didn't want to be there and I was a major inconvenience asking for a big loan or something. He also clearly did not listen to what I was saying because he would ask the same question right after I already gave the answer. I don't care how successful or busy you are; you need to treat people the way you want to be treated. Respect goes both ways.
