    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Palm Beach, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bankrate (West Palm Beach, FL).

    Interview

    Technical phone screen:

    Technical questions are asked and if pass then they will ask you for an in person interview the following week.

    In Person:

    First part of interview with polished empathetic manager introducing himself spending 45 minutes asking questions about background and understanding the candidate.

    Second part of interview with developers white board exercises asking comprehensive, conceptual walk through scenarios.

    Third part of interview is an ambush. Two narcissistic inexperienced architects asking pointed questions, questioning credibility of candidate, and not wanting to know if the candidate can do the job, but satisfying their own egos at the expense of the candidate. What is really demented, is they seem to enjoy themselves, relishing in the candidates uneasiness. There is another candidate on this site that states they answered a question correctly but was told they were incorrect. I would assume by these two architects.

    Fourth part of interview. Follow up with manager.

    SEO Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Many, many rounds. I had a phone interview with the hiring manager, then a phone interview with a team member, completed a case study, then 2 video interviews of about 2 hours each with about 6 people at the company, including people not on the team and another interview with the same team member. Then there was radio silence for about 3 weeks, and I had to follow up with the recruiter 3 times before getting any response.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    I was contacted by recruiter and he set up an on site interview. He then followed up and set up a skype interview with a CEO in their office. Following that, I was told that I would hear in couple of days and after reaching out several times, never heard back either way as a courtesy from the recruiter. Very unprofessional process and I would not recommend that company after this poor experience.
