IOS Developer Interview

IOS Developer

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 days - interviewed at ProKarma.

Interview Details – Note: Very unprofessional conduct by recruitment/HR in my opinion.

Basic process. Talked to recruiter and talked to technical lead. They seemed to like me and wanted to hire me claiming they would send me an offer the next day.

The next day, instead, the recruiter said I needed to meet with a VP of the company but I did not have time till the day after. They never got back to me about scheduling such a meeting.

They also sent me an email asking if I preferred salary or hourly and after I said salary, they called me and proceeded in trying to convince me that I needed to pick hourly instead.

Finally the day after, they sent me another email with an employee agreement to sign digitally but still no offer. Later an email arrived from the recruiter with a rate, but again, still no actual offer letter.

They scrambled to up their offer once I told them I had accepted another company's offer but by then it was obviously too late.

In general, I'm not sure I want to work for a company that can't handle the recruiting process in a professional manner.

Interview Question – Basic iOS questions via the Technical Lead   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I got a better and more professionally handled offer from another company which I accepted.

Interview Details – Pretty straightforward process. Dealt initially with recruiter on phone, and went on to meet with senior management in Omaha. Questions dealt with previous employment and were meant to see if my skills matched the job description. No real surprises. It was one of the least painful interviews I have ever done.

Recruiter Interview

Recruiter
Omaha, NE

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ProKarma in May 2013.

Interview Details – Professional & informative. Was provided with a "realistic job preview" of the position & company's culture so that I could assess if I would be successful in the role and with the Company. This information was extremely helpful to ensure I was making the "right" decision.

Interview Question – Questions were more technical focused due to my 10+ years in the HR/Recruiting Field. The interviewer asked questions about my work history, reason for looking, motivation as a Recruiter, full-life cycle recruiting experience, sourcing experience, handle ambiguous situations, ability to work independently and meet deadlines in a fast paced environment.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, you are able to negotiate- if needed. My offer was very comparable to the market rate so I had no need to negotiate.
