Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Help Scout.

Interview

Had an interview with the recruiter going over basics which went well, then with an HR person which went well, then another interview with an engineer about JavaScript which went great. Was then given a take home project that will take at least 4 hours using React to create a bookstore app where you add/remove books. Sent in the project and was told I did very well. Then had the final interview with the Cofound/CTO who seemed pretty uninterested and lethargic. After I got off the phone with him i received a rejection email saying they "needed a candidate with more experience in the areas we are lacking". I'm sure they knew about all my experience after all the interviews and the project i sent in so this was some made up explanation for whatever reason. Soooo much time spent on interviewing and project only for nothing. Can't imagine why they can't figure out how to reject someone sooner instead of taking up so much time.
