Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Mountain View, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at 23andMe in September 2011.

Interview Details – I had a terrible experience with this company.
After initial phone interview with a hiring manager I came to the company's office in Mountain View for a face to face interview. I had to take a time off at my work to be able to make it.
The interviewers were not there, HR people were not there, I waited for almost an hour in the empty conference room and then I just left. Apparently, the place is extremely disorganized. Got email from HR with apologies and request for reschedule, but decided not to proceed.

Product Writer Interview

Product Writer
Mountain View, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at 23andMe in February 2009.

Interview Details – I was contacted by the company's recruiter via e-mail asking if I'd like to speak to her on the phone the following week. She gave a specific day and asked for times. I then responded with specific times but didn't hear back from her, which led me to e-mail her again. Finally, we arranged to do a phone interview and I thought it went well, but then I never received a callback for an in-person interview. Even after following up, I never received a response.

Interview Question – Describe your experiences condensing a difficult concept into simple, short copy.   Answer Question
