    Interview

    Extreme Strange, I applied on career fair in Oct 2017, and get the OA about one month later, and in the OA there is one coding question which has some issue with the stream input, so that one not passed. And then on Jan 2018, I suddenly got two following interviews, the behavior interview comes first, and I don't know why I didn't pass, and I got no feedback even I asked for it. And then they canceled the technical interview. Anyway, the whole progress is strange.

    OCR rounds. The person I spoke to was extremely impolite and didn't really seem to care. He was a condescending and was hard to talk to. I don't know my decision yet but I expect a rejection. I wouldn't like to work with this type of person anyway.

    Interview

    It was a very long and drawn out process. I was told I would move forward to final round and then the communication exchange went silent. After several follow up emails and VM I finally received an answer. If I can give advice to this hiring RPO team...if a candidate takes the time to drive an hour to meet you at a hotel lobby for an interview, it is common curtesy so respond to a follow up email. The candidate should walk away from the process feeling good no matter what the outcome was. I hope you don't treat your RPO client's candidate this way.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IBM (Baton Rouge, LA).

    Interview

    The interview environment was low pressure to begin with. They start with a personality test to get you loosened up then send in a senior team member for a technical test. The technical interview was when it got a little intimidating. It was not mentioned prior so I was genuinely caught off guard.
