Senior Software Engineer for Automation Tools Interview

Senior Software Engineer for Automation Tools

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Netflix.

Interview Details – I was in touch with the recruiting team and hiring manager for 2 months. I applied for a position and there was a HR call in October. A technical screening to evaluate my profile and skills was arranged. The initial call with the hiring manager went well and I was given a programming assignment to complete. The programming assignment wasn't something you could complete in a short period so I was given ample time to design and implement it. I spent roughly 10-12 programmer hours on the solution and gave it my best shot.

There was another call to talk about the solution and thought process. This call went well too and an onsite interview was scheduled. Given thanksgiving and other holidays the interview could only be arranged 3 weeks after. Dates were agreed upon, flight booked, hotel booked and I also took 2 day vacation for the interview.

I got a call last Friday that the position that I was suppose to interview for was filled and me flying in for the onsite interview was tentative. There was another position that I could be a fit for but the recruiter wanted me to talk to the engineering manager for this position. I go research this new position, listen to their videos over the weekend and also looked at the technologies that the team is using.

I talk to manager on Monday and we talk about a few things. He asks some questions related to how to test with mockito, junit and asks about my language preferences given that I was working on 2 different server side languages at the same time. I answer the question and I hear a huge sigh. I personally thought he was asking me questions just for the sake of asking.

I am personally a huge fan of Netflix and I admire how they are able to open source their technologies but this experience left me with a bitter taste.
