    Because of concerns around COVID-19, the process was largely done remote through video calls.

    Content Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Backbase.

    Interview

    What a joke. I applied via glassdoor and after about 3 weeks I was contacted by a member of HR via email. We set up an appointment to have a screening call, which was then rescheduled less than 40 minutes before the call. Plus, it wasn't with the person I was meant to have the call with originally.
    I progressed to the next round which was an assignment. Fine, this is how things go.
    Where things went sideways was on the day of my final interview. I met with the woman how conducted my screening interview and the CEO. From almost the word go he was rude, dismissive, and super defensive about what I had written. He acted like by trying to come up with new text for the landing page I was asked to rewrite, I had personally insulted him. Then, in the middle of the interview, he got up and left claiming he had more meetings scheduled. I was left to finish with the woman I would be working closely with. All she could really do for the rest of the interview was apologize for the CEO's terrible behavior.
    Then the next day I got the rudest rejection email I had ever received, questioning my motives on why I applied and telling me my work was subpar. It was awful.

    Interview Questions

    • Why did you think you could write this better? Did you even read the landing page?   Answer Question

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Backbase.

    Interview

    Great. One of the best had in the US. Sometimes you don't know what is going to happen next. The recruiter explained the entire process in the beginning. She even kept me informed throughtout the process and made herself available for any questions. The way it was explained is the way that it happened. First with her and then coding assignment. After I passed I had a technical interview on video. Had a final with a head guy also. Everyone from start to finish were nice and professional. Appeared that they liked the company a lot.
