    Android Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Getaround in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied to the Android Engineer role on Getaround's website. A week later, get an email from HR with a short exercise to complete. It was very simple: create an Android app that pulls data from 500px and displays a grid of images. Finished it in a day or so and submitted. Waited about 3 weeks with no response, so I replied back to HR. They mentioned that their team was working around the clock on a large project and haven't been able to look at my exercise. Then two weeks later, get the rejection email without any reason or feedback.

    For one month of waiting and no real feedback or active communication with HR, I felt like it was a big waste of time. Do the exercise if you want practice with developing Android apps, but better to save your time and look elsewhere.

    Community Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Getaround.

    Interview

    The interview was nice. Questions related to the job and I had a chance to apply my background to it and whatnot. General interview questions to make sure your background match. But then she never followed up. I emailed two weeks later and she said "hiring manager is out of town" and then still never got back to me...

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Getaround (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Had phone interview, followed by two in-person interviews., then nothing for a month despite numerous emails from me on status. After a month and after writing Getaround off I get an email saying I should know something that day. Later in the day I get a rejection letter. Very poor recruiting practices and a total lack of respect for the candidate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Getaround (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and had an interview with the hiring manager within the next week. I didn't get a sense of passion or direction from the conversation but thought it'd be worth meeting the rest of the team. Unfortunately, there was ZERO follow up after the interview and my emails inquiring about next steps were completely ignored.
