What can you expect?
The first interview is typically with a member of our Recruiting team, who will go over why it's awesome to work here. They will also make sure Files.com is a good fit, and answer any questions you may have.
Every candidate that advances far enough in the interview process takes the CCAT as part of the interview process. We have found it to be valuable in assessing aptitude fit, while also being respectful of candidates' time as it only takes 15 minutes.
If you advance, you will interview with your future manager. This interview delves into what to expect in the role, and includes a series of questions specific to the position. It's also a great opportunity to really get into the weeds about the role.
We carefully select assessments related to the various open positions to capture critical information we would not otherwise gather from a standard interview. Additionally, we make sure our assessments value your time.
Some roles require one or more additional interviews. This could, for example, be a co-worker or higher up manager. Don't worry - we will let you know who you will speaking with ahead of time.
Our CEO, Kevin Bombino, personally interviews nearly every candidate before we make an offer. Our most successful candidates (now employees) have discovered that this interview is more akin to having a conversation on a topic you are passionate about.
We encourage you to create a free Files.com candidate account by following the directions below:
- Go to https://signup.files.com/signup/ and input [CANDIDATE] plus your name in the Company name field.
- For example, a candidate named Jen Smith would input "[CANDIDATE] Jen Smith" in the Company name field, but without the quotes.
- Yes, you should still put your name in the My name field immediately after it.
Not only will familiarizing yourself with our platform help on interviews, it is also meant as an opportunity to determine if you would be interested in working on or supporting the Files.com platform.
We believe interviews are a two-way decision, and you are welcome to reach out to email@example.com with questions at any point in the interview process.
We value your time, and will try to keep the entire interview process under 3 weeks.
We encourage you to ask your interviewers questions about the things that matter to you when choosing a career.
After 3-4 interviews, we generally know if you will be a good fit at Files.com. But, we understand that you may have more questions, and we are happy to schedule additional interviews with other people at the company to help you with your decision.
