Mission: Creating intelligent spaces.
I have been working at Purple - Intelligent Spaces full-time
- Birthday off and that's it
*Heavy micro-management via ridiculous amount of useless softwares. Purple is an "old school" call center
*Some team leaders and managers lack empathy and apathy towards employees. They don’t show they care at all and treat employees like they’re interchangeable
*Purple's unempathetic leaders lack emotional intelligence and don't motivate employees to succeed
*Conservative management. Management only focuses on number of calls/demos/meetings instead of strategizing employees' pipeline/touches with clients to maximize results
*Purple have no interest in employees' development and creativity
*Career postings are misleading stating management team feeds employees with plenty of warm leads to convert. You won’t have any warm leads
The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Purple - Intelligent Spaces (Manchester, England (UK)) in October 2016.
Very straight forward. 2 F2F interviews which were 2 way conversations, allowing me to find out as much about Purple as for Purple to find out about me. The first of which was mainly discussing what I had done previously, my motivations in leaving my current position and joining Purple. The 2nd F2F was to discuss the plans I had and what I could bring to Purple, at this stage we also discussed areas of concern in my application which gave me the chance to overcome any objections.
There was also 2 quick tests; personality and intelligence after the interviews.
