    I was rejected within 1 day of applying for this role. I received a generic template for a role that I am very qualified for. It would be nice to at least reach out and explain why candidates are not chosen for the role.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im September 2020 bei Okta (Chicago, IL (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I was contacted by a recruiter from LinkedIn, asked to apply. I had a phone interview with someone different than whom I was contacted by. The person I contacted by was not prepared for the interview. They didn't read my resume before the call, and they didn't ask me what my interests were. I applied for one role, pushed to interview for another. I pushed to interview for a manager's role, then asked no questions about managing teams or resources. I had to implement a b-tree on the fly, which was fine. The dev interviewer wasn't prepared, either. Just a strange experience.

    Interview process seemed to be straight forward and was moving quickly. However in one of my last interviews, I was asked by a male interviewer, if I was married and then followed it up by asking if I had kids. This is completely unbelievable to me that the person interviewing me would ask and did not know that both these questions are illegal to ask. I was literally stunned when I was asked these questions and it pretty much brought the interview to a halt. Clearly from the questions, being female did not make me a candidate for the role.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im August 2020 bei Okta (Saint Louis, MO (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Recruiter emailed to ask when I was available for a phone call. I replied with my availability and during the call, the recruiter asked some basic questions about my past experience and why I was looking for a new job. She also asked about salary expectations and said that they were looking to move ahead quickly with this process, and asked when I might be able to start. She explained what the next steps were, which I appreciated since sometimes it’s not clear to me after a call what I should expect next.

    After that call, I had a video call with the hiring manager. He explained a little more about the nature of the job and asked a few questions about my experience. A couple of his questions were less about my ability and more about character qualities. I wasn’t prepared for these and probably could have done better, especially as I find it hard to compliment or brag about myself. The hiring manager asked for writing samples, but we had no time left on the 30-minute call to go over those, so I sent them to him and we finished.

    I asked the recruiter for an update and heard back quickly. They had decided to go with someone else and she said they wanted to keep in touch in case they had another similar role open up in the near future that could be a better fit for me.

    The Recruiter asked me for an interview. However, two times I was stood up with and not even a follow-up email. I reached out to the recruiter to reschedule my interview but never heard back. Very unprofessional experience, if I was no longer considered, at least an email would have been nice.

    Der Vorgang dauerte eine Woche. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Okta.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Received an email maybe a couple days after I applied that they wanted to talk to me. Had a slick scheduling process. Initial phone screen with HR representative. Went well, pretty basic. She told me at the end of the interview that I'd be moving on to the next round. Then the next week had an interview with the hiring manager. No word after a week so checked in with HR and received an email that they are moving forward with "another candidate." Found it interesting that it was candidate (singular) at that point given that they were just at the stage where they were starting 1:1 interviews with the hiring manager, and from what I've read on Glassdoor about Okta's interviewing process, it's pretty lengthy, many steps. So, my guess is they decided to go with an internal candidate. I emailed both the HR rep and hiring manager separately asking if they could provide some feedback on why I didn't advance but, crickets from both. It would be helpful to get some direct feedback - even a simple couple sentences. Transparency is a trait of a reputable and respectable company.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2020 bei Okta (San Francisco, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The process is the usual for tech companies, but I will try to elaborate.

    1) Initial call with recruiter (sourcer) to elaborate more on the role and see if it's a fit.

    Okta's recruiters, till the very end, had the best of intentions and
    were very friendly and easy to speak with.

    2) Technical phone screen with another software engineer.

    This was a straight-forward algorithmic problem with one of their current engineers. They gave some time at the end to for me to ask questions. We had a good conversation about the company and what their experience had been, so I was more interested in the company after this round. Good feelings so far about Okta at this point.

    3) Onsite (virtual)

    I had a combination of further technical screens based on my resume experience with potential teammates and meetings with the team's leadership. This was not a deal-breaker, but, definitely for this onsite, be prepared to stay "on" for several hours straight. The onsite process did not allow for many breaks, and meetings tended to overlap, which added up at the end of the day.

    The interviews were pretty nondescript and impersonal, which made it more difficult to get to know the team. Personally, I like to connect with individuals who could possibly become my co-workers.

    Latter part of the day, however, I had an interviewer that subtly belittled my past job experience and skillset, even while I was coding. This was the deal-breaker.

    Tl;dr for the reader: Remember you are interviewing the company/team too. I have previous wonderful co-workers who went on to work for Okta, so I don't want to attribute the above behavior to the company, but I do believe this was very unprofessional behavior on the interviewer's part.

    Wishing the best for those who are interviewing.

    Simple interview process. They need to standardize process. As of now it’s very adhoc. I couldn’t get much information about role. Strongly recommend for freshers not much exciting opportunity for experienced folks.

    I had an interview with 2 managers, it felt like everything went well, but I never received any feedback. I contacted the recruiter more than once asking for status, and he never responded.
    It is very unfortunate to see how companies dont follow up and not even offer you status or tell you if you were not selected.
    They dont take the time, and it only talks on how bad the company is....

    Easy interview process. About 7 Conversations I received an offer, a little below market value but they make up with the stock. Words of wisdom for those out there, don't think the company cares about you. They'll dump you in a second, even less without giving any benefit of doubt. Positives are some thought leaders and sharp minds are still there, but 3rd - 4th best is running most of the shop now.
