    Dot NET Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ambit Energy (Dallas, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to the job through a recruiter and I interviewed in Dallas office. It started with a phone interview and an in-person interview. Met with three development managers they came in the room one after the other with 2-4 minuets apart (for sure the last one missed what i had to say about my background and skills). One manager was texting while i was talking with the rest of the team. I felt like disrespected when he was texting on his phone and felt he does not care.

    Technical Translator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ambit Energy in May 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring manager was on business trip, so that the interview was on Skype. Even if there was a skill test prior to the interview, the manager did not mention anything about it and kept telling me something in regard of "oh people think they can do this and that, and then I find out they do terrible job". I was explained that they want to make sure that I knew what kind of work environment it is, so I ended up talking to 2 more people who have same jobs. All they talked about was complaints about the work environment including no work-life balance, terrible bosses and how busy they are... and they took over 90 min. I do not understand why they (a manager plus 2 translators) have time to be on the Skype for 90 min if they have so much overtime (no-pay) and tell me they are so busy. Poor time management.

     I withdrawn after the interview because the very first question was about my last name and marital status, the existence of a small child and overtime without pay (exempt position with not-so-great annual salary).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ambit Energy (Dallas, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Tough interview process. Started with a phone interview and an in-person interview. I felt like they were underpaying for the position and that they were combining 2 positions into one to save money. When asked, they would not disclose how many hours were in a typical work week.

    2 weeks after the in-person interview, I received an anonymous email about the position. I felt disrespected, as I received an anonymous email that stated- "position unfilled - job closed". I didn't even know what company the email came from, as it came from an automated email system from Brassring. The email did not state the company nor the position. I had to figure it out on my own. The company couldn't even muster up the fake "Dear xxxx, Thank you for interviewing for the position, but unfortunately we have decided not to fill the position and we have closed this position."

    I feel sorry for the people that work there. If they don't even respect you during the interview phase, I would guess they don't respect you when you work there.

    So happy they closed the position. They did me a favor. Do yourself a favor and don't even apply.

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ambit Energy (Dallas, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Had two phone interviews and had a third interview set up at their office with two phone interviewers and the hiring manager. When I arrived the phone interviewers were not available for the interview. The hiring manager interviewed me for approximately 1/2 hours. He spent most of that time monitoring and answering emails. How rude! Glad I didn't get the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Ambit Energy.

    Interview

    Simple questions. None of the requirements or objectives discussed never actually applied. I got the feeling the interviewer was simply using corporate buzz words and didn't really understand the topics or concepts.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ambit Energy (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    None, you just find a consultant, they will explain the opportunity, probably show you some great informative videos. You pay a fee to join and for your welcome kit (which is very helpful - contains charts, cards, tips), and then join. You'll have a one on one mentor to help you as well.

    Interview

    A phone interview was conducted. Then I was brought in for an interview in person. The people were nice and easy to talk to. They asked the normal interview questions. They seemed to be looking for a certain personality rather than a specific specialty skill set.
