I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Ooyala in July 2012.
Interview Details – A phone screen via Skype with the human resources person, which was scratchy and difficult to understand, lasted only 20 minutes. At the end, to my delight, I was advised my interview was successful and I would progress to the next phone screen. I was told that the details would be sent to me in the next couple of days. I received nothing. Weeks later, I received a proforma rejection email without any acknowledgement about their error... most unprofessional. Methinks the human resources person jumped the gun in the interview by confirming my success without checking with others. Most unprofessional.
Interview Question – No difficult questions. They just wanted an overview of my career to date, which in my view was articulated very succinctly in my resume, so I merely paraphrased. Answer Question
+ Smart, talented individuals
+ Great location between San Francisco and San Jose
+ Good overarching goals, but communication can get lost in translation – Full Review
