    QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Actiontec in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I'd thought the interview process went well. No technical questions or anything of the sort, just spoke with the hiring manager and one of the engineers. Company corporate structure seems questionable considering that the engineer had reportedly not been told to show up at my interview beforehand, didn't know what position I was interviewing for, and therefore had no idea of what questions to ask me.
    Also my interview was at the beginning of the month, and the hiring manager specifically said that he would respond within a week. Here I am at the end of the month with not even so much as a form rejection letter. No matter how many companies partake in this practice of cold silence, it is a disrespectful practice that should be abolished.
