    Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cornelius.

    Interview

    The Company doesn't seem to have firm ground on their plans, and not even sure about what role they wanted to hire.

    I was interviewed for Engineering Manager position. After 2 phone interviews, and 5 actual interviews, and interview with the VP, I was offered LEAD ENGINEER position as it seems due to company restructuring they are no longer hiring for Engineering Manager.

    On top of it, I was making "X" salary in a fortune 10 company in a less cost of living society. They have offered me a salary increase of 2% in the city which would cost me 19% more in cost of living and without relocation assistance.

    Also, I have got multiple calls asking me what was the expected salary which indicates they haven't made good notes on the inteviewee.

    There was no expense paid for interview incidentals, and nor Relocation assistance was offered.

    All in All, it was waste of my time trying to respond to the interview requests.
    To summarize, the job title was different that what I was interviewed for, Salary compensation was not matched to compensate for cost of living expense, no relocation, no clarity on what they need from prospective candidate, finally no good notes keeping.

    If you get a interview call, insist on what you need and be upfront about your expectations so that you do not waste your time.
