  1. Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Netherlands
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shopify (Netherlands)


    Started out great but became drawn out, disorganized and rude.

    Whole process started great, the life story portion was a fun 2 way conversation, then moved to 3 technical/experience interviews over a span of a month and a half. None of the people I interviewed with were able to tell me what the next steps would be, when they would were looking to fill the posting by and that I would have to reach out to the first person I interviewed with for that info (HR).

    When asking about the culture I got the same canned response from each person "its just amazing!". When I asked for more details they just kept saying “it’s just amazing and such a people first business” - “its just amazing".

    During the whole process I was consistently told what I am a perfect fit for the role, the top candidate and how much they think I would fit in and be a great addition.

    After the "final" interview I was told to reach out to HR if I had any questions but should hear very back soon - great right….?

    As the weeks went by I never heard back from Shopify and each of the 4 follow up emails I sent (for any updates) over the last 2 months went unanswered and ignored - I was ghosted which considering the fact that I took the time to meet with Shopify on multiple occasions over the span of a month an a half it is incredibly rude, inconsiderate and unprofessional to ghost a job candidates. I can also understand that the first follow up email might get ‘lost’ or the person forgot to write back, but not responding to 4 emails is just willful and it’s obvious you’re just ignoring the person, which again is unprofessional and rude and speaks a lot to your “people first approach” - no matter how “busy” you are it doesn’t take much to send out a one liner acknowledgement with anything like “we’re still in the process”, “thanks for following-up but we don’t have any answers yet”…..anything is better than simply ignoring people - it’s rude and unprofessional.

    On that note we all know that not everyone who shows up for an interview is going to get the job but when people take the time out of their busy days to prep and show up for multiple interviews the least you can do is send a templated "thanks but no thanks" rejection letter as a common courtesy.

    But I guess none of that matters to the people working there, because "it's just amazing"
