Take Command's Interview Process

In an effort to create a consistent interviewing framework, all candidates participate in a three-pronged interview process where we ask the same set of questions for a particular job. 

Interview #1

Your first interview will take place over a 30-minute Zoom call at the date and time of your choice. The purpose of this interview is to get to know you and better understand your professional background.

Interview #2

The second interview is technical in nature and lasts about an hour. If you’re interviewing for an engineering position, be prepared to discuss code and whiteboard your thoughts. Operations candidates might execute an Excel case study while Growth candidates often prepare examples of written communication–either way, your recruiter will walk you through what’s needed and will provide you with necessary instructions for that interview.

Interview #3

The third and final interview is behavioral and will include several Take Commanders from across the company. This allows us to get to know you better and also gives you some insight into our culture! Please allow for 90 minutes for this interview.

 

How to Prepare

Alexander Graham Bell once said, “Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.” Check out these tips to help you prepare for your interview:

  • Check out our website to learn more about Take Command and our mission!
  • The interview team will likely ask some behavioral questions to learn more about your past experiences. Check out the STAR method to help frame your responses.
  • If you’re interviewing for a technical role, be prepared to white board (in person) or share your screen (remote interview).
  • We want to know what YOU want to know! We don’t expect you to know everything so feel free to ask us questions. Conversational and informative interviews are encouraged!
