    Software Engineer-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I'm beginning to see a pattern here: it seems like they are just gathering enough candidates to meet a quota. Only apply here if you're desperate.

    You know you will be rejected if the recruiter comes in and tells you that the other people you were supposedly going to meet are not available. Who schedules an appointment, only for the majority of interviewers to not be available? Is this how disorganized the company is?

    If you read past interview experiences, this is a pattern seen in this company over and over again. It's almost like they don't have the guts to tell you they don't want to proceed further. But what's even more unprofessional is to have someone schedule their afternoon allotted just for this company only to then pull out right at the very end. I've done countless of on-site interviews and this is by far the most embarrassing, mediocre, disorganized, poor excuse of a company in terms of interviews go. The lack of professionalism is cringy at best.

    I've never seen anything quite like it. This is a top-down issue. I think it's painfully clear and obvious that the leadership of this company has little to no respect for its employees and it's no wonder that they have such a high turnover rate. Who wants to work for a company that doesn't value its employees? At least pretend to, but they don't even do that. It literally seems like they are winging it here. I'm surprised they are still around. If it weren't for acquisitions they probably would have fizzled out ages ago. Just look at how mediocre CarsDirect is to its relatively younger competitors.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Phone screen with recruiter, follow up with GM via phone, in person with GM, someone on his team, and two senior leadership team members. Provided a written sample to show how I'd handle scenarios people in this role would face on a daily basis.

    From start to finish, everyone I spoke with was positive and upbeat. The only reason why I give this experience a thumbs down is I received a phone call stating they weren't moving forward with my candidacy but wasn't sure why. The recruiter let me know she'd solicit feedback and call me to let me know what it was.

    To this day, I've yet to receive a phone call after two emails and two voicemails to the recruiter giving her the benefit of the doubt.

    It's bothersome that hiring managers and teams are so quick to dismiss candidates, promise to get them feedback and then not follow through. One of the executives on my panel was stuck in a meeting and couldn't make it. I get that schedules get conflicted, things happen, but think about the perception you're creating in the eyes of people that genuinely want to be part of your company and come join a solid team.

    1. Phone Interview - HR person who called me was very nice. Every questions and answers went smooth. Overall this experience wasn't too bad. At the end of the phone call she said she was going to give me 3 online tests before I move on. It was 2 hackerranks and 1 case study. She said she was going to email the links to the test in an hour.

    2. After 3 hours, still no email. So I emailed her first, asking for the links. Then she replied right away. Maybe she was busy. I understand. Hackerranks were thought provoking, but not generally too difficult. As a non CS major I had to use all the time. The case study does require some writing, almost to the extent of being a project.

    3. After I sent the results, the same HR girl arranged a live online coding test with an engineer. I thought this was the real thing, and prepared for it as much as possible. At the time of the interview, the engineer who was supposed to interview me apparently wasn't available, and some other "person" (I'm not even sure if she was an engineer herself) called to interview me instead. Didn't find that an issue and moved on to take the interview. Again as a non-CS major, I had to think for awhile. Wasn't satisfied with the result, but it was OK, because I got to solve it anyways.

    4. Couple of days later I got asked for on-site interview. Maybe the live coding interview wasn't everything, so I set up a date and went in for the interview. Location is nice; right next to LAX, view was great, and company itself is big. I say hi's and hello's to people and I was led to a room where the real interviews will be happening. In there I finally get to meet the HR people. Nice people; they wanted to emphasize that they were there to support me, which I appreciated. I was supposed to be interviewed by two people: one from the team and the QA head, to my understanding. The HR people left as soon as they explained what will happen.

    5. I wait for awhile, and the first interviewer walks in. We greet each other, shake hands, and even before he sits down he asks me questions regarding the interview. I don't remember the exact sentence, but it was something about a case study. Generally it was him asking the questions, I answer, and after a second or two of "hmm"s or "ok"s, he asks another question. The overall feeling I got from this person was that he seemed like the interview was a waste of his time; generally he stuck to the questions he had on his paper, and he left as soon as he was done.

    6. One of the HR person comes in again, and asks how it went. We talk for a bit, and lets me know the head of the QA is in a meeting and is running a bit late. I actually found that extremely odd; I didn't know why they scheduled an interview for this date then. I didn't have any choice so I just waited.

    7. After 30 minutes the HR person comes in and says the QA head won't be able to interview me today, so I'm going to need to come back on a later date. Thinking back, I'm thinking this is how they reject a non-satisfactory applicants.

    8. At the end of the day I email the HR girl; a short thank you letter, saying it's a shame I didn't get to interview all of them. No response for a week and a half. I email her again for a followup, and to my surprise in less than 10 minutes a different HR person replies, saying they moved on to other applicants.

    Even without any further explanation this was a bad and time-consuming experience. I didn't understand the negative reviews before the interview, but now I know. There are many other things that I found bad, but writing that down seems like more waste of time. Apparently there's lots of avoidance when facing responsibilities. Maybe I wasn't qualified, or maybe I was. Still doesn't change the fact the people who work here wasn't very professional.

    Found the job on LinkedIn, applied, was contacted by a recruiter the very next day. We had a quick phone call, which was very conversational. They walked me through the job, made sure I was okay with it. Scheduled an interview in the office for the following week. Met with two managers, took about an hour. The Recruiter followed up with me letting me know they needed an additional reference, I guess I had only put co-workers and no managers. They got back to me in a week with a job offer. Filled out a background check link, and started the next month with a class of co-workers.

    Regarding the hiring process, there was a lack of trust, communication, and respect for candidates. I didn't want to believe the mixed reviews on this site, but now I do.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I started with a phone screening with a recruiter. I applied for Senior Product Manager, but the recruiter wanted me to go for the Director of Product Management role. I had a first interview with the VP of Product that went fairly well. I was asked to come to an on-site interview to meet with three people.

    When I showed up to the on-site, it was a bit chaotic. The scheduled people weren't ready so I had to sit around for a bit. They adjusted the schedule to accommodate me. Once I met with the folks, the interviews seemed superficial, like they were just going through the motions. Each interview also ended about a half hour shorter than scheduled. After meeting with two people, I was told the third person was still unavailable and that was the end of the on-site. Overall, my originally-scheduled three hour interview as

    It took two weeks and several follow-ups initiated by me to find out I wasn't moving forward, which wasn't that disappointing given how the on-site went.

    Got an email for a phone interview, the phone interview was pretty basic. Once you pass the phone screening, they send you 3 assessments. 1 of them is a multiple choice test, the second is a programming problem and the third is a case study. Its a lot of tedious busy work and honestly it might not even be worth it because the pay is ridiculously low. To the point where it is almost insulting. I was actually shocked that I did not get an offer because I was able to complete the assessments without struggling on them. One thing that I keep thinking of is how can you have such high requirements and expect the cream of the crop to want to work for you when you're paying so little? Maybe that's why there's always job opening for this company.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I'm not sure if my experience is the norm or exception, but I thought the overall interview process was very fast. I had attended a university career fair and met with a recruiter who forwarded my application to another recruiter. I think that's how I was able to move quickly in this particular hiring process.

    It took about about 3 days after I submitted the online application (on Monday) to get a phone interview with the recruiter (Thursday), then I got the Case Study Test the day after the phone interview (Friday) to be submitted the following Monday. (The Case Study Test only took an hour once you know how to calculate formulas in Excel.) Then, I was invited to do an in-person interview 4 days later.

    More info on the in-person interview:
    The recruiter said it normally takes about 35 minutes-1 hr for the in-person interview, but my interview was nearly 2 hrs long. I spoke with the recruiter briefly who outlined the schedule, then the hiring manager (future boss), then a potential team member/co-worker, then the director of business development & revenue operations (the manager's boss). I found all three conversations to be really good experiences and practice in speaking to people of various levels who have different priorities in mind.

    It will also probably help if you have specific questions for each person rather than having the usual questions about job responsibilities, opportunities for professional development/growth, company culture, etc. For example, I wasn't expecting to speak with the last person, but it also turned out to not really be an interview about me personally, but a conversation about what company culture means. Although in hindsight, I don't know if that was a different approach to figure out how I think about and approach certain topics...

    Then, a little over a week later while a background check was conducted and the recruiter contacted my references, I heard back with a job offer, which was great news. However, I was only given 24 hrs to review the written offer. From what I had heard from friends and family and the various job sites/boards/advice/blogs, I thought it was customary to ask for at least a few days and a maximum of 1 week. I tried asking for more time, but the recruiter didn't budge on 1 day, and framed it more as if the recruiter was doing me a favor in extending the offer because they had another candidate waiting (which I'm sure is the case for most jobs...). I felt pressured to say "yes" due to the time restriction.

    Up until the job offer stage, I thought the recruiter and company had treated me politely and with respect, which was opposite from what many of the reviews here on Glassdoor had described. But then, when I was given only 1 day to decide if I needed to move and even maybe buy a car (I don't presently own one since I could never afford it), it was very stressful and I felt like they didn't necessarily care if I took the job because, hey, no problem, there's another warm body who will take it right now. (I was also juggling another potential job lead that was a bit better in terms of salary and position, but 1 day was not enough to have the other company expedite their process for me.) So, I took a risk to see where the other lead went and declined the offer. (By the way, this entry-level position's salary seems fixed at $16/hr, which is why I gambled with the other lead .)

    Needless to say, I never heard back from the recruiter after I gave my decision.
