    Straightforward interview. I applied online and got contacted for phone interview about 2 weeks later. The phone screening was with HR and was mainly conversational (why do you want to work here, tell me about your background, etc.).

    I was contacted a few days later to say they would not be moving forward despite the interview going well.

    The interviewer was candid, opening by asking what I wanted to know about the role. The company is growing quickly, so don't be surprised if job descriptions/requirements have changed since you applied.

    Entrevista para Sales Development Manager

    Entrevista

    apply - phone call - video call - then onsite?
    They all have a history of being late for their calls/meetings. And then they will remove you from the process because of something they did even though you did everything you could. plus 3 weeks just to get 2 calls set..their process needs improving

    I would not recommend interviewing here. At least not until they know how to value candidate's time. If they do that on the interview, IMAGINE what it would be like if you were to work there.

    The process consisted of an initial call with the recruiter for 30 minutes, followed up by a video call with the hiring manager which lasted an hour and covered the basics of product marketing, and background on the company and what they were looking for. I was too experienced for the role.

    Entrevista para Senior Data Engineer

    Candidato de entrevista anónimo en Portland, OR (Estados Unidos)
    Sin oferta
    Experiencia negativa
    Entrevista normal

    Solicitud

    Envié una solicitud electrónica. El proceso duró Más de 2 meses. Acudí a una entrevista en Elastic (Portland, OR (Estados Unidos)) en enero de 2020.

    Entrevista

    Complete waste of time, look elsewhere. Although I did not get an offer due to them believing I was not competent enough for the position, I wound up going through my four other >$150K offers and accepted a $170K, unlimited PTO, fully remote role elsewhere, if that gives you any idea as to how accurately your skills are judged in this process. Easily the most unprofessional interview process I have experienced. They were making things up as they went.

    I spent a full month talking to people across several slowly-scheduled interviews. Aside from the glacial pace, conversation and personality-wise everything was great up until the code test. For background: I have a decade of experience working with big data (and small data), cleaning up data sources and preparing them for ETL pipelines, etc. I write clean, commented, efficient code, and even once designed and implemented an ETL analytics workflow that directly resulted in millions in revenue for a previous company and led to my promotion to work directly under the CEO & COO. With that in mind, I was told by Elastic that based on my submitted code sample that I would not be selected because they did not think I could parse data input to a program or acknowledge areas for improvement, both of which were inaccurate judgments. I could spend a lot of time going into the details of how flawed the code interview process was, but I'll leave you with a few highlights:
    * Having designed my own code review process and used it to hire 5 or so interns in the past, I know that a well-run code review process should feel like a welcoming, friendly, professional conversation. This came across as a grueling PhD qualifying exam experience. They would ask a question on how to improve something, I would acknowledge that the code was not as efficient as it could be and provide options for improvement, then ask for feedback, and get blank, cold emotional terse responses in return. I have never felt more un-welcomed in an interview process than I did during this code interview. It was very bizarre; the code interview seemed to be run by smart people with lacking social skills. It seemed to me as if the interviewers had no interest in engaging in a conversation but were instead asking a list of scripted questions and could not figure out how to respond to a real back-and-forth discussion.
    * They give you a large JSON sample dataset to use in a hackerrank environment that does not allow you to copy-paste that JSON so that you can use it in local-environment testing. Not a single person on the interviewing team that designed the problem was aware of this time-wasting flaw in their own testing environment. I had to manually transcribe JSON into an external test environment before I could even begin coding.
    * They verbally stated, multiple times in fact, that the quality of the code would not matter and would only be used as a starter point for discussion, so don't worry about making it messy and just stay within the 2h time limit. However, there was ultimately no time limit on the challenge, and other candidates more desperate for a job spent more than my self-imposed 2h time limit on the question to produce more ideal code. Ultimately, I imagine the most ideal code regardless of time spent on the problem is what resulted in job offers, despite convincing conversations indicating the opposite.

    At the end of the day, interviewing here was not only a massive waste of my time but an insult to my well-established skillset. I have had a successful long-running career at well-known companies, but apparently I don't know how to parse data. Thankfully, there are a number of other companies out there that have a more professionally run interviewing process that gave me excellent offers. I highly recommend you respect yourself and look elsewhere.

    Entrevista para Analyst

    Entrevista

    Like many others on here, I had my fair share of negative experiences while interviewing with Elastic including the glacial pace of their interview process which so many have complained about. In fact, my experience outlined below occurred over 80 days!

    I was initially contacted a few days after submitting my application. Since this is a distributed company, all interviews are conducted virtually. My first two video calls were screening interviews with the recruiter. I was then quickly scheduled for yet another screening interview with a member of the team that I would be working with. A few days later I was asked to have a follow-up call with the recruiter who wanted to discuss next steps. The first red flag was when she asked to schedule the call at 6:30 AM!! I was shocked but did not feel it was appropriate to complain given the recruiter’s distant time zone and the positive feedback I had been given up to this point. I went through with the call at this very early hour and was informed that my first formal interview would occur with the entire team the following week.

    The interview went well, though I noticed that the level of questions I was being asked were easily answered by just looking at my resume. It was apparent most people on the call had not taken the time to read it.

    Since the process was moving rather quickly up to this point, I asked about next steps. I was told that I should expect two additional interview stages. Three weeks had transpired up to this point since my first call with the recruiter. This is where things started falling apart.

    One call I had scheduled with the recruiter regarding next steps was rescheduled only 30 minutes before the appointment. When we finally touched base regarding next steps, I was told to expect another interview with the team manager and would be contacted soon after to have it scheduled. To my surprise, I was then dragged through 5 additional weeks of waiting!!

    Each week I followed up for more information, the recruiter just apologized and thanked me for my patience. It became apparent to me they did not have a strict timeline for filling the position. During this time I started being approached by other companies.

    For the next interview, the team manager was the only person on the video call. He had already participated in my previous interview so I expected a new round of questions. I was utterly shocked and disgusted when he answered the video call while lying down in his bed with no explanation as to why he found it appropriate!! His room looked like a college dorm. His bed had no headboard other than another smaller mattress (like one from a crib) propped up behind it. He also had his one arm propped up under his head in a very casual manner which I found very unprofessional and uncomfortable for an interview.

    The interview was not only inappropriately conducted but was also a complete waste of my time as he had no new questions for me other than how I like the team so far. It was obvious he was not trained on conducting interviews and was not prepared to do so for this call. He indicated that I should expect to participate on the final interview but could not provide a time frame.

    After this interview, I had to follow up with the recruiter several times regarding next steps before I finally received a reply. When she finally responded, she indicated she would be in touch to schedule it. When two additional weeks went by without an appointment scheduled, I finally decided to withdraw my application based on the company’s lack of professionalism and obvious lack of respect for my time. My entire interview process had taken up almost 2.5 months and still had not come to an end. Ultimately, I decided to accept a position with another company and am so glad I did.

    For anyone reading this review, think long and hard about what you expect from an employer and whether professionalism is important to you. Based on what I experienced, you are likely better off seeking employment elsewhere.

    Entrevista para Support Engineer

    Solicitud

    Envié una solicitud electrónica. El proceso duró una semana. Acudí a una entrevista en Elastic en diciembre de 2019.

    Entrevista

    The interview was fairly typical - I had a phone interview with a recruiter that essentially made sure that you had relevant experience and were a good fit for the company. I then interviewed with the head of support which was fairly straight forward. We talked about my experience and why I wanted to work for the company. There were a few technical questions and more just expectation to make sure you installed and messed around with the Elastic applications prior to the interview. Ultimately, I was rejected after the second interview due to a lack of system administration and DevOps experience. They were very courteous to provide me direct feedback on where my weaknesses were, what they were looking for, and invited me to apply again after gaining experience. Overall, everyone was very friendly and passionate about their work.

    Entrevista

    Company is primarily remote so it was a total of four phone/video interviews (1 with the recruiter, 1 with the hiring manager, 1 with the hiring manager's boss, and 1 with a peer). Each were about 45 minutes via Zoom video conferencing (phone only for the recruiter). Everyone was nice and punctual. They asked about your background and why you wanted to work for Elastic, specifically. The interviews were easy and more conversational in nature.
