Interviews at Ten Thousand Coffees
Anonymous Interview Candidate
I interviewed at Ten Thousand Coffees
Conversation with HR, followed by interview with hiring manager, followed by panel interview with case presentation. The process was okay and everyone seemed nice. The team made an effort to mention several times how key it was to hire this role ASAP. After the time spent on the case, the hiring team did not bother to provide relevant feedback. They only told me they weren’t looking for the role to be filled any further. A bit disappointing especially after all the time spent preparing.

Pretty standard. There were some standard questions about how I would go about debugging a general issue on the site. Then a couple of technical questions. And questions about any personal projects.

Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

The Interview was set up as a single phone interview which lasted less than 30 minutes. This interview began with a brief and friendly chat about my interests, some of the clubs, teams and associations I was involved with on Campus. I had just come back from an event with another school club so this filled a large chunk of the conversation. I was also asked to tell them a little about myself. Next, a quick resume review -- answers any curiosities the interviewer had about particular jobs or clubs. Again fairly informal, and easy going. The questions asked were all STANDARD behavioural / situational questions -- along the lines of "Tell me about a time where there was a conflict at work and how did you address this" . If you research a list of common interview questions, you'll breeze through this part without even needing to think. I believe I was offered the job at the end of the call or through email immediately afterwards. The initial training was about a week and a half later.
