    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Handy (Dallas, TX) in May 2017.

    The hiring process took about 3 days, and I had to pay for a background check. I was hired after I passed it. I felt the hiring process was very quick compared to other companies.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview

    I was offered a Software Engineering position at Handy in January 2018. Recruiting went smoothly through the onsite visit, and I was given an offer consisting of $110K base salary with 10K stock options and a start date in 2 weeks time. The offer also expired 2 days after they extended it to me; when I counter-offered asking for additional stock options, and 2 weeks more time before starting (in order to give my current employer a 2 weeks notice and move from three states away), they made no attempt to counter my offer or even say that they could only meet the initial terms. A day after the offer expired my contact called me to say they would be passing on me.

    I have never dealt with such unprofessional behavior at a tech company. What was strange was that during my visit everyone who I met there (including the CEO) was very cordial and professional ... except my contact, who was a total jerk. From mocking my current job (in finance) during an initial phone interview to aggressively trying to get me to commit to Handy when extending the original offer on the phone (without giving me time to look over a written contract), to the dismissive attitude I received when he finally called to say I was being passed over (after getting an offer 3 days before!), this startlingly unprofessional behavior came to be the defining feature of my experience interviewing there.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Handy in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an invitation to do a technical interview. The technical phone screen was different than other places. You receive a call from an engineer and they tell you a little about themselves and ask about you. Then, they explain the problem. The call lasts about 15 minutes. They hang up. Then, you are left to solve the problem for the next 45-60 minutes. I completed the problem but it had a memory issue. I heard back within a few days. No feedback was given.

    I applied online and spoke with the hiring manager in a phone interview, passed was given an extensive practical exam, completed the exam then they offered it to someone who was further along and had more experience.

    There was no interview. Handy does not inverview anyone. You fill out a form with your information and start working. This is how sloppy this "service" is. Good luck with that.
