Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grab (Seattle, WA) in August 2017.

Interview

Very friendly interviewers. the questions are challenging and more difficult than most of companies. 3 technical rounds and 1 design/behavior round. The offer is pretty good, and the outlook of the company is great, IMHO

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grab (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    The process involved an on-site interview in half a day. Four coding interviews.

    Even though the interview questions were straight forward, I heard back that one of the engineering managers didn't think they had a position open for my skills. Which is seriously dumbfounding: I submitted a resume with my experience, so why was it necessary to spend half a day there doing interview questions when it wasn't even necessary?

    It's fairly clear that unless you're a senior engineer, they'll not treat candidates that well. I got asked out on a date by one of the interviewers after.

    THAT was exciting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grab (Seattle, WA) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Had a telephonic with recruiter, followed by telephonic tech interview, 3 tech rounds and hiring manager interview onsite. Tech rounds consisted of 2 algorithms questions and 1 system design. All interviews were heavily focused on understanding previous experience.

    One of the on-site tech interviewers was intent on putting down my current employer and product. He was very proud of his work at grab which is great but trashing other company is arrogance.

    The hiring manager seemed pretty disconnected and hadn’t reviewed the resume prior to interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grab.

    Interview

    The interview process was well structured. It starts with a phone interview and if it goes well, they call you for an on site three hour technical interview. Three different engineers will then ask you questions for an hour each.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grab.

    Interview

    30 mins with recruiter, just chit chat, quite relaxing and it's more about knowing one another. 45 mins with engineering manager, white board coding throughout, in my opinion, this is the 'real' interview. questions are not hard, just need to calm down and write down the answers. Following up questions could be quite challenging.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grab in September 2017.

    Interview

    I had a terrible experience with Grab. HR is so bad that they won't even reply to your emails for scheduling interviews and sharing feedbacks after the interview. They are extremely unprofessional. I got rejected after first skype round.
    The interviewer was very rigid and he was not open for a discussion. He wanted the exact answer to a problem whose solution he mugged up. He didn't give time to think even. He asked me 6 problems, out of which I answered 5 correctly and he was affirmative.
    The one problem which I got little stuck was a discussion problem. He was not ready to even discuss it, he wanted to hear some technical words that he knows. Don't know what he was trying to ask.
    After the interview, I thought I will be selected. But, got a rejection email.
    Don't waste the time of candidates if you don't want to hire.
