Senior Software Engineer Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (Seattle, WA) in March 2017.

Interview

It was good and well organized. The HR kept in touch throughout the interview process. But after the interview they did not have the courtesy to let me know their decision. This is something, which I always find very insulting, as I have invested time and had to take a day off to take the interview.
