    Patent Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norwalk, CT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Datto (Norwalk, CT) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The whole process to get an actual interview took about 6 months. They kept scheduling and cancelling. I thought it was an indication of how I would be treated as an employee. Once I finally had the interview at the company, only one of the people I was supposed to meet was there. It seemed pretty clear that I was overqualified and it wasn't a good match. They seemed really disorganized throughout the interview process. Still, they took several weeks to send me a note with their decision.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Datto (Norwalk, CT) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Overall the interview process was fairly straight-forward. Phone interview with generic questions then technical in-person interviews with three or four other software engineers (some in groups) all on the same day. They were very interested in my overall knowledge of Linux and data security.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Datto (Norwalk, CT).

    Interview

    Very impersonal interviews, standard boring questions, very little concern about problem solving and experience in real life situations. Interview process is disorganized, they had to reschedule 3 times. Plan to meet with 6 people at least. Nearly everyone you meet with has been there less than 1 year which is a huge red flag.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Datto (Norwalk, CT) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Received a phone screen. Lasted about 20-25 minutes. They asked really obscure questions for web dev role, like a very specific question about an uncommonly used linux command. Once making it past that part, they gave me an exercise which I successfully completed and returned to them. I then very quickly received an auto-generated e-mail telling me they weren't moving forward with me. I asked for feedback, and they never gave me any.
