I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Coupang

Interview

Had an initial phone screen. The first impression was impressive in multiple aspects and it may shows a glimpse of the company culture (1) as soon as we started zoom call, the recruiter received a phone call and put me in a hold. Definitely the candidate is a second priority. (2) Zoom call, the recruiter did not turn on the video throughout while I was on video. Again, there is a serious cultural deficiencies in how to treat candidates (3) I asked about company value - the answer was customer centric - the way the recruiter treated the candidates did not reflect customer centric. Then said it is depending on departments - are you saying different departmental culture is the company culture? then said a lot of managers "foreigners" so they are different - instead of describing specific value, this implies more generalization approach of all "foreign leaders" are operating a certain way. It is just inappropriate answers
