    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Spiceworks full-time

    Pros

    - Solid coworkers
    - Solid benefits

    Cons

    - It is hard to get things done when the CEO wants to micro manage every aspect of the business.
    - Lack of employee investment by the company, and career development here is non-existent
    - Without clear direction or focus on updating product technology, the company continues to fail users and customers while ultimately missing target sales numbers.

    Advice to Management

    The company has fallen off the 'best places to work' lists and employees are leaving in droves yet it seems leadership is not interested in improving sentiment....or maybe just not equipped to drive meaningful change?

    Contract Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX (US)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Spiceworks (Austin, TX (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening interview was simple and overall a good experience. There were two of them. I was then scheduled to come in person to interview for four hours- separate interviews with 6 different people. That was taxing, tiring, and time consuming.

    I felt as though the overall interview went well, but to take a day off of work at my current job to partake in a 4 hour interview with scheduled time slots with 6 different people was bit of an overkill. A panel interview would have been better. Kill 6 repetitive questions with one interview.

    Following the 4 hour interview, I had to complete a homework assignment which I was told would take me an hour or so. It took me 3 hours- the tasks and questions were specific to their job practice, not industry standard. Had I not taken notes during my face to face interview, I wouldn't have been able to complete the assignment.

    Overall I spent a week interviewing and preparing for this job, took time off of work to be amenable to their schedule and deadline, complete an assignment with a fast turn around (due in 24 hours, done in 4) only to get the call informing me that a more qualified candidate was selected. It was a real downer- a bit deflating after all of that but a learning experience.
