    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grab.

    Interview

    Got a initial phone interview with Grab. I gave them my availability a few hours later. I did not hear a response back for 4 days. They then set up an interview which I was unavailable for I updated my response and they got back to me in another 2 days with a new time. I declined the interview request because of lack of communication and promptness. Recruiters are supposed to be representing their company and if this is how the company operates I don't want to be involved.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Grab in January 2018.

    Interview

    Weird interview in Seattle office. I was excited going in but the interview completely turned me off. Mainly because of a lack of diversity and no desire to change that either. I thought it was odd there there are no women there except for recruiters. The weird part was when one of the interviewers told me they prefer to hire Asians. Not even worth discussing the rest of the interview, I was done.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grab (New York, NY) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Initial email after I sent in my resume is received after 10 days. Then I was expected to complete online tests for 30 minutes which is average in terms of difficulties. After I completed the tests, I have to wait about a week for the callback for interview. I haven't received it yet. But I appreciate the hiring process which is concise, simple, and efficient.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Grab (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied through Grab's official website.
    The HR contact me after 1.5 month and asked for my schedule for the nexr 2 weeks. I recenived the interview information one month after that. However, HR forgot to tell me the location and interviewer. I received the reply only 2.3 days before interview.
    They canceled the interview in the noon on the day. But informed me only by e-mail.
    The HR said will reschedule the interview for me as soon as possible. I reminded her twice but she forgot. Until the third time, she promply arrange for me which is 3 weeks after the first interview. This time she forgot to mention interviewer's name too.
    The interview was conducted in Cecil Court which is different from last time. Another nightmare starts...

    Interviwers interupted me very frequently and asked wierd questions. You know they are not professtional in the area. They don't care what is your opion when doing reaearch but only the method name of the research. They keeped asking me what is your method but I already emplained. I prepared many ideas for grab upon some observation, they are not keen to know.

    As sucks as i heard. Office environment is dissapointed too.
    Anyway, it is the place u better dont go.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grab (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Stay away from this company!!!!
    I was referred by one of their former employee. HR reached out me, and had a short conversation. A week later, I was told there was not data scientist opening (Then why the HR set up a call with me and waist my time?!).
    Then I moved on and interviewed their competitor and got an offer in another city. Then I reached out HR again, and he set up interview for me immediately.
    I interviewed and got an offer. They gave me a low ball oral offer, but told me if I can present a competing offer, they are willing to match to their best. The reality was, they did not increase offer at all!!!!!
    HR kept saying, I have to accept offer first, then they conduct background search, then they will send written offer (What the!) .
    I took the offer and reject my other offers.
    And then, HR called me, told me they decide not to move forward! What the!
