    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Conductor in May 2017.

    Interview

    When a programmer gives an interview it is very step-by-step procedure. First the technical screen. Learn about the company and take time off from work to be there. I was invited for a 5 hour onsite. I had done initial screening and two technical rounds on-site when I was told the interview will be discontinued as they want a more senior level developer. Now, there are two things that happened. First they failed to see my resume properly or the response from two rounds was negative and they decided to discontinue. I recall doing fairly well in both the rounds in face-face interview and definitely not bad enough to have been discontinued. Even if candidate fails to perform best in a round , an opportunity to try and improve in further rounds should be provided. I felt a complete waste of my day and I wish the company is more considerate about that for future candidates.

    Senior Sales Role Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Conductor (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    One and Done! Lots of canned questions from the Inhouse Recruiter. I bet he googled good interview questions before each call and likely has a sheet of paper in front of him during the 30 minute telephone screen. It felt very much like I was a criminal on the witness stand. I have interviewed for a very long time and by the end of the call I asked to not be considered based upon the manner in which the recruiter went about his business. They very well be an outstanding organization but their inhouse recruiter has zero bedside manner and does not understand how vital a role he plays.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Conductor (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was out of the norm. First call with the recruiter was the normal tell me about yourself, then phone interview teach someone how to make an origami crane - totally off the wall but went with it and it was ok. Then two in person interviews - a presentation and a kind of meet and greet with some of the team. Then, yay! verbal offer and a promise to have it in writing before thanksgiving holiday. waiting and waiting... nothing. Have to check in and don't hear back. The recruiter was injured and the cause for the delay which I can accept BUT! Then I get a call saying they offered the job to someone else. No one bothered themselves to call me even though they had offered me the job. No email. Nothing. No courtesy message saying by the way, you should forget about this and keep interviewing and applying for other jobs. Just a totally awful and disappointing experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Conductor (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    2 rounds of phone interview, and then 7 rounds of onsite interview.

    1st round: coding
    2nd round: a small project
    Invited to onsite interview after the phone interview.
    Met QEs, manager, VP and CEO.

    People are really nice, but I think... maybe they are not seriously hiring someone at this time.
