    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Guavus.

    Interview

    lengthly and protracted interview process, lots of phone screens leading to face to face interviews.
    Interviews themselves were okay and not too difficult. People were friendly, though usually late for the interviews but that was the norm for most people. Good conversations around experience, projects worked on and delivered. typical soft skills related questions

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Mateo, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Guavus (San Mateo, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    A phone call followed by an onsite interview with 4-5 rounds of interview. The questions are pretty straight forward. I wasn't prepared well for the interview. Its usually pertaining to data structures, optimization techniques and SQL. The engg team in San Mateo is very small and the crux of the work is done in India. The team in San Mateo seems to be doing mostly prototyping work and customer specific feature modification. Didn't get much positive feel from the interview, the hiring manager talked about technical debts issues araised out of rapi prototyping and lots of co-ordination between remote teams as one of the challenges. The workplace felt pretty quiet and laid back for a startup. He also spoke about employee burnouts and tight deadlines.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Guavus (San Mateo, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email from a recruiter to schedule a phone screen. The phone screen was scheduled and at the specified time the recruiter did not call me. I waited about 25 minutes called the recruiter to inquire and he sounded a bit annoyed and made up an excuse about not being able to find my number (which is listed on my resume), then rescheduled later that day. He also flaked on the rescheduled phone interview and didn't call back. I emailed about it and haven't received a response.

    All of this has left a terrible impression of the company on me. If you're not interested in interviewing with a candidate you should not contact them for a phone screen and then flake twice. It's completely disrespectful.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guavus (Foster City, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interviews. 2 rounds.

    On-site interview. Met 4 people.
    1. HR. Introduce the company business.
    2. Some engineer.
    3. Some VP ( couldn't remember exactly the title). Talked about my research and resume.
    4. Lunch.
    5. Some engineer.

    I expected to meet the principle data scientist, but I didn't get to see her.

    I got the printed out schedule for the interviewers. After two round interviews, the HR thought I was done and was about to let me pack and leave......

    It's been 2 months and I didn't get any feedback. Too bad.

    Interview Questions

    Data Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Guavus.

    Interview

    I applied by email. HR responded that they were "really looking for someone with a very specific background" but kindly __ offered an internship __.

    I am a very senior Ph.D. scientist with more than 15 years of industry experience.

    How insulting is that?

    What does that tell you about the level of hubris in that company and the depth of their disregard for poor job applicants like you?

    The sad part: the recruiter was dead serious. She read my resume and her response was not a pre-made template.
