    Interview

    Initial behavioral phone interview with someone from HR and then an in-person technical interview. The technical interviewer had a narrow scope in terms of the skills he was looking for-- mostly networking and linux questions were asked. The primary purpose of the interview seemed to be criticism of my experience, although I'm not sure why, since I truthfully represented myself in person and on paper.

    After my poor experience in their office, I chose not to move forward with the process. It turned out to be a great decision as I was hired by another company that appreciated my current skill set and has invested in developing me further.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ScrollMotion in February 2015.

    Interview

    This company seems to be selling a very cool product. If you see what the founder has created/done, it is impressive. I applied through the website and about a week later had a phone interview scheduled. The phone interviewer seemed like she was reading the questions off of a paper, in a checklist-type fashion. Didn't seem to be a very skilled interviewer. Approx. 30 minutes long. The questions were nothing out of the ordinary.

    Interview

    I was contacted by someone from ScrollMotion HR. She said: I work for a tech startup called ScrollMotion. We make really cool mobile apps in the enterprise space. I noticed your profile on LinkedIn, looked through your profile, and I think your experience is great. I'm not sure if you are in the job market or at least open to new opportunities, but we'd love to chat with you sometime if you are interested. However, even if you're not, I'm still very impressed with your background and profile and you should be very proud of your accomplishments!"

    It sounded like an interesting company, and they sounded very interested in talking, so I responded to suggest times to talk, and never heard back from them.

    Interview Questions

    • What was unexpected was that the HR rep would reach out to me and then not respond after I suggested times that we could talk by phone. I think that they should generally contact potential hires this way only if they are interested in actually talking to them. As a general courtesy, they should provide some type of response after encouraging people to respond to interview requests.   Answer Question

    Negotiate a little more. Its possible if they want you they will pay for it. But don't get greedy either.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at ScrollMotion (New York, NY) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I initially received email from the person I would be reporting to. The email consisted of a list of questions dealing with Apache, networking, mail, and find -- intermediate Linux questions, basically. I then got a phone call from him and we talked about my background and work. A few days later, I got a call from his boss and, again, the discussing was focused on my background and experience. Finally, a few days after that I got a call from the CTO and his was more of a high-level conversation about the company and what I could bring to it.

    I then visited their offices and met the first gentleman who interviewed me. At that point he grilled me with technical questions, some of them basic ones that I knew, others obscure ones that would require some research. When he was done he took to criticizing my responses, but then passed me on to his boss. (Quite honestly I thought the interview was over after his remarks to me.)

    The culmination was meeting the CTO, who took me into a small conference room and was looking over my resume and hardly looking at me. He then said he had no questions and asked if I had any questions for him. I then proceeded asked him questions.

    When it was all said and done, the first interviewer then emailed his list of questions and asked that I research them and respond. It was a very strange request, I must say.
