    Business Operations and Strategy Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Palantir Technologies.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by recruiter via call and text. Recruiters worked with me to schedule a 30 min Skype interview with a member of the team. The recruiters were nice enough and helpful.

    But WOW was the team member unprofessional!

    He couldn't make our original scheduled time; I found out via the recruiter (not the interviewer) that he had to reschedule 5 minutes after our scheduled time. During the rescheduled interview, the guy didn't even have the courtesy to acknowledge the rescheduling. I get it -- meetings come up last minute. But to lack the basic decency to say "my bad" speaks volumes about the team's values.

    Toward the end of our interview, when I so much as gave a hint that I was done asking my questions, he followed up with an immediate "okay bye" (hangup). So sorry to bother you with my interest in your company bro.

    My advice to the Operations and Strategy team would be to re-evaluate who you have screening your candidates and how they are representing your team.

    Interview Questions
    • Basic antiquated strength/weakness/etc questions. Final question was "Tell me the names of your last two managers. If I called them, how would they rate you and why?"   Answer Question
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
