    Demand Generation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)).

    Interview

    Après avoir postulé à une offre via LinkedIn, j'ai été recontacté quelques semaines plus tard par un recruteur pour un screening call. Suite à cet échange le recruteur m'a proposé un autre job dans l'équipe qui correspondait plus à mon profil. Puis, les entretiens Skype se sont succédés : 1:1 avec chacun des membres de l'équipe et la manager, présentation d'un cas devant l'équipe entière, 1:1 avec un membre de l'équipe aux USA et 1:1 avec la Directrice EMEA.

    Le process est plutôt long pour un niveau Associates mais l'équipe RH était présente du début à la fin avec un briefing avant chaque entretien et un débriefing un ou deux jours après chaque entretien. Bienveillance et challenge étaient au rendez-vous de ces entretiens mais l'équipe prend vraiment le temps de comprendre votre projet professionnel, vos envies et votre personnalité, au delà des compétences, pour vérifier que vous allez bien vous intégrer à l'équipe. On sent que l'entreprise se donne les moyens de recruter les meilleurs talents.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at LinkedIn.

    Interview

    Pretty much exactly as others described here -- a recruiter pinged me about the position via LinkedIn, had a short call, there was a coding interview, a technical interview, and then a multi-hour interview with different teams that included several parts (code review, system architecture & design, incident response, behavioral meeting with a hiring manager, and hands-on troubleshooting).

    Finance Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at LinkedIn (San Francisco, CA (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Interview was rescheduled to 7.30PM EST due to conflict that arose. Hiring manager was late, understandably due to toddler tantrum. Interview that was to last 45 min lasted 20 min with interviewer asking 2 questions. One question was what your long-term career goals are. The question is considered as not genuine (any exp. interviewer would know). I would question any hiring manager who asks that as a question during the first interactions. Employees are more focused on 2-5-year goals. The reason the interview was cut short I suspect is because the hiring manager likely had to return to said toddler. Next time just reschedule the interview.
    I spoke to 2 individuals who worked on hiring managers team and the feedback was that he is intense, works long hours (sleeps for 4 hours) and into the detail. I also tried to find diverse individuals on his team and finance in general and there was none. All Asians, a few white people but seems all Asians. A former colleague at Microsoft also mentioned that LI finance has had challenges with respect to diverse colleagues. There is hardly any diversity in Finance. From the lower levels to the higher levels
    Does it also surprise you I never heard from HR following said interview? Rejection/next steps (nothing). It could possibly be because of the layoffs. Communication is key when you are recruiting new candidates. It also felt like they were feeling their pipeline as they had just hired for a role I applied for. (by the time they called me for interview)
    I really like Jeff Weiner and had him speak at a few events. He appears to be an amazing and charismatic leader. I really hope they rethink a couple of thinks
    o Interview process with hiring managers
    o Getting diversity across board but specifically in LT roles across the board. Finance looks terrible from the lower levels.
    Remember diverse candidates want to see you are serious and committed to your goals. One of the questions I typically ask is “how does diversity look at the leadership levels”. In this day with the current environment, no one wants performative stated goals/commitments from companies

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    LinkedIn reached out to me about a possible role in their organization. (Note: I did not apply for a position, they proactively contacted me.) The entire process was unprofessional and disjointed. LinkedIn missed multiple scheduled interviews and commitments with me. The excuses for the missed meetings were not believable. Then lastly, being completely ghosted by them.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at LinkedIn (San Francisco, CA (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    LinkedIn has been a pretty painful interviewing process purely due to the recruiting team.

    The process itself is pretty straight forward.

    HR Screen
    Product Manager call
    Interview panel for 5 interviewers

    In between each step, the recruiter I worked with took two weeks with radio silence to respond. Even when checking in and nudging, it's been a really disappointing process to not get feedback or updates. I did the final loop three weeks ago and haven't gotten a rejection yet. It's sad that a company whose mission is to help people's professional lives drops the ball on treating applicants like people.
