    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with senior manager and then scheduled for an in-person interview a few days after. It was relay style, one after the other until the whole team met with me. It was very tiring after the first hour and half. The entire process lasted over two hours. Was not efficient, and I was repeating myself five times.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at OXO.

    Interview Details

    I had roughly 6 different interviews with the HR manager and 5 other people who were previously in the position I was applying for. After the first 2 interviews questions became repetitive. after being hired I was introduced to the entire staff with a short bio. So people already knew who I was by the time I started.

    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at OXO.

    Interview Details

    After 2 phone interviews (1 with HR and 1 with the engineering manager) they asked me to come to New York on my own dime (always a red flag). When I arrived, I thought the offices were really nice and clean, but it had a standoffish vibe. Although they advertised for an entry level position, they wanted someone with 2-4 years of experience (I had 2 years at the time). My interviewer only set aside 15 minutes for our interview. Somehow in that 15 minutes I was told the pay was in the low 50s (this is a couple standard deviations below the mean for a degreed engineer with experience in New York).

    They gave me a pretty detailed assignment by email and a couple of weeks to complete it. I heard nothing from them for about 3 weeks after I submitted, and the manager finally wrote back to my emails to let me know they were no longer hiring for the position.

    A few lessons I've learned from this interview experience:
    1. Be cautious about interviewing with companies that don't pay travel expenses.
    2. Be cautious about interviewing with companies that only set aside 15 minutes for an in-person interview.
    3. Do not participate in assignments that require a suspicious level of completeness. Every 4-6 months, I see the position that I applied for advertised on various job boards, which indicates that they either have a problem with turnover or a solution for getting free work done by applicants.
