    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Minted (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted my application and promptly received a reply from an internal recruiter. We set up a phone screen for the same week. She was very nice and informative about the company and position. Moved me ahead quickly to the technical screen which consisted of several oral questions and a couple of simple programming questions. The coding portion was done remotely via an online code-sharing tool. I found the questions and process to be easy.

    However, to my surprise, they did not move me forward. As I felt I did very well on the interview, this was really unexpected. I answered every question in detail and completed both coding exercises without much trouble. The interviewer did not correct my code, ask me to expand on any aspect and even seemed to indicate I solved the problems as he would have. So naturally was taken aback when I was not moved ahead.

    Furthermore, they did not get back to me the entire week after my interview and I had to ask them for an update late Friday. I received a boilerplate answer back that didn't make logical sense. As someone who has had a lot of experience hiring, you should never leave a candidate hanging like that if they are a no.
