- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Thermopylae Sciences & Technology.Interview Details
I was contacted by Thermopylae for a position they had open that looked like a good fit for my skill set. Spoke to the HR contact, then did a phone interview, followed by an in-person interview
The phone interview was pretty standard with one of the technical members of the team who mainly just asked about my background and explained some of Thermopylae's services. Nothing surprising here.
The face to face interview involved myself and 3 others. One was the hiring manager and the other two were technical employees on the team I would be on. It was very similar to other interviews in which they ask about background then begin a more technical dive into details on how things work. They all appeared knowledgeable and quite friendly.Interview Questions
Reasons for Declining
- Had to write some pseudo-code on the whiteboard (shell script) for a fake use case Answer Question
Upon receiving the offer I had some concerns about discrepancies between HR and the hiring manager and asked for clarification which would influence pay/benefits. HR was to go iron things out and get back to me. 3 days after receiving the offer he called and said they needed anoter few days. 9 days after the offer I reached out and asked for a status and didn't get a response for another 6 days (18 days total). That response was talking about contracts and that they needed another few days to get the contract right.
Never heard a word back after that. No returned calls, no emails, nada. I had other offers pending and have since moved on, but now (3 months later) still haven't heard back. Obviously, they rescinded the offer but never bothered to inform me.
Maybe I fell through the cracks, or they didn't like my counter, but not going radio silent is a big issue with me. If I was still in the market I wouldn't accept the offer after 3 weeks of being ignored.Declined OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
