Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Confluent (Bangalore) in Jul 2020

Interview

For me the interviews were all held remotely given COVID situation. There were fitment assessment, coding and system design rounds. Confluent's interview process was the best I have ever seen. The HR keeps you informed at all stages about the timelines and expectations. The interviewers are really smart. Questions are carefully chosen and well thought of. The great thing about these interviews was it was an exercise of exploring what me and the interviewer could achieve in 45 minute given a problem. It was nothing like a typical interview where interviewer would judge you based on a question they had already seen. I really enjoyed the interview process and kudos to the talent/people team for making it such a delightful process. Questions are difficult and not standard LC questions but you get them right with strong fundamentals and team work with the interviewer.

Interview

I had really high expectations based on what I had heard about this company but sadly I had a really negative interview experience , or lack there of. I had my first round interview with the recruiter who told me that she was really excited to connect me with the women who would be conducting the next interview round. She walked me through what the whole interview process looks like at Confluent and after speaking with her she assured me she would get back to me by the end of the day (Monday). I didn’t hear back from her until Friday evening around 7:00pm at which point she was apologizing profusely about the delay and asking if I would still be interested. I got back to her within 30 minutes and let her know that I was still interested and that I could even work around the next interviewers availability to speed up the process. I then didn’t hear back for another week at which point I decided to stop responding because I had already accepted another offer.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Confluent (London, England, England) in Mar 2021

Interview

This has been the most ridiculous recruitment process I have experienced in my 10-year sales career. I got contacted by one of the recruiters via LinkedIn and responded on 23rd February. We were meant to chat a couple of days later and there has were issues with last minute cancellation but it was still acceptable. Then I was asked to foward my CV, which I did and then I had to chase the recruiter to schedule another call with him. Followed up a week later with no response. Then 2 weeks later to says I would describe my experience here and got an immediate response. Despite the inital issues, I decided to go ahead and meet the hiring manager. The only positive I can mention was that they were understanding when I wasn't well and agreed to postpone the interview. The interview was completely unstructured and the manager failed to describe the role and the team to give me context before asking questions. He only did it after my guessing game on what was expected for the role. The chaos made the interview unnecessarily stressful and not informative at all. The main take away for me was that the manager was inexperienced and only cared about the numbers. Going back to the recruitment team, I emailed them a month later to let them know I would like to warn the other candidates and describe my awful experience. Needless to say, I received no feedback after the interview- positive or negative.

I had a total of 6 interview with the team I would have been joining. Carmel and Peggy were delightful and made the interview process comfortable.

The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Confluent (Madrid)

Interview

An initial screening and then an interview with the manager. The interview went ok, but suddenly the recruiter disappeared and didn’t reply any of my emails. One of the worst interviewing processes ever! I’ve applied for a role in EMEA and the recruiter was based in Berlin.
