    Interview

    I applied on indeed.com for their entry level FAE position on Monday night. The next day I got an email from the HR manager that she would like to have a quick chat over the phone. Scheduled it for the next day(a Wednesday)and we talked for 15 mins. It was basic stuff like why you want to work here, why should we hire you and if I met their qualifications. 2 days later(Friday) she called back and said that she would like to schedule a phone interview with the senior FAE. I scheduled it for Tuesday. The FAE called me and we talked for 45 minutes. He went over the classes I studied in college and the projects I mentioned on my resume. He also asked questions on how you work under pressure and with a team and if I was ok to travel and work really hard. I thought the interview went well. 3 days later I get an email saying that they had moved on and that they had more qualified candidates.

    Interview

    Absolutely the most unprofessional and insulting interview process I have ever encountered. Had initial contact, then was contacted on short notice for a phone screen that was to occur 90 minutes later. After clearing my schedule, that phone screen was cancelled with 15 minutes' notice due to "an emergency," and I would be contacted about a reschedule. After five weeks of no response, I was advised that another candidate was in the final stages.
