Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Collins, CO

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Broadcom (Fort Collins, CO) in Jul 2022

Interview

The process went pretty smoothly until the offer came. I got the offer and sent an email asking clarifying questions as shown below. The manager was clearly upset that I asked about WFH for a second time. However, after reading that the job description stated, “ This position is an in-office position; working remotely is not available without corporate direction.” I wanted to verify that it absolutely was not a possibility because the description seemed to suggest corporate could allow for it. She emailed me back, upset about the questions I asked. Within an hour or so I got a call stating that based on the emails I had sent with my questions that they would rescind the offer. The questions seem very routine to me so I’m sure I dodged a bullet not getting this position. 1. Do you write API documentation? I am currently looking to learn more about APIs and I'm enjoying developing my skill-set with API documentation at my current job and want to know if that is possible at Broadcom. 2. I know we've discussed that this is an entirely in-office position. Is work-from-home completely off the table or would there be room for negotiation for even one day a week? 3. I am really looking for a company that values work/life balance. How flexible is the work schedule? Is flex-time an option? 4. Do you have somebody I can reach out to about how they feel about work culture within the department? 5. I realize I asked this in a previous email but thought I'd tack it onto this one so there aren't two emails about it. How long would I have to use the $35,000 moving budget? I would be hoping to move my family eventually but I would still need to leave them with a home here in Utah until that is possible. In previous companies I've had up to a year to use that budget. Is it the same at Broadcom?

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Broadcom (Hyderābād) in Jul 2022

Interview

Got the call from recruitment agency. Then Broadcom manager scheduled first round where he asked 2 coding questions & a few general questions. It took about 70 mins. Then he scheduled another round of discussion saying next will be designing round. Next round was taken by some other person & its was not on system design, Java questions were asked where I messed on 2-3 simple questions. And the discussion was cut short to 30 mins. In one question I knew I am missing something which interviewer could have corrected, but no. So its a red flag in itself.

Interview Questions
  • Level order printing of tree & other general Java questions.
