    Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Masimo.

    Interview

    Spoke with HR. First she went over the position and the company. Asked basic questions about resume. She said she will give her notes to the supervisor of the position. At the end she said she'll be happy to answer any questions. In my follow up email I asked her a question related to the position, but she never responded. Two weeks later I got a rejection, and when I asked for feedback she didn't respond either.

    I later found out from the person who got the position that they had met with the supervisor in person a week before my interview and was already selected as the candidate. The supervisor interviewed and offered them the position on the same day, so I don't know why they even bothered interviewing me. I felt as if Masimo wasted my time.

    Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Masimo.

    Interview

    1. phone screen: Fairly simple step, just checking to see if you are who you claim to be, mostly ask basic questions about your interest in company, salary requirement, some resume questions. 30 min.
    2. phone interview with hiring manager: a bit more detailed regarding your technical skills. 30 min.
    3. In person interview: Presentation to all people they PLAN on having you meet throughout the day (i think the schedule was 9am-4pm). If they dont think you fit the role they will cut interview short. Personally I had gone through my presentation and met 2 or 3 people before the the recruiter came up to me and said they were looking for someone with different skillset. It was quite unprofessional as the it was the recruiter who let me know of their decision to stop the interviews, while the hiring manager was nowhere to be seen. Overall it was a waste of my time since they should have figured out their hiring needs before hand and I clearly stated my experiences during the two phone interview.

    Interaction with the recruiter was pleasant, while interaction with the engineering team while onsite, although brief, some team members were at times disrespectful.

    Probably will never apply for a job here again.

    4. In Person Interview - 3 hour block and scheduled to meet with 4 people (3 engineers + hiring manager)

    After meeting with 3 engineers, the recruiter came in and said the hiring manager was busy in meetings so the interview was finished. She politely said that she would get back to me once they made a decision but in typical recruiter fashion, I never heard from her again.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Masimo.

    Interview

    Well, I didn't knew how they found my profile but glad they did.

    First, was a HR call about myself and stuffs like 15 mins call. Second they send me a basic DSP to code. HR explicitly said in mail to use any languages to code, I coded in Java in like 1 hour and send it back, took them 4 days to get back to me, saying they want the same to be coded in C, took another 1 hour to code and send back to them, after 3 week no response at all from them.

    So, just to be in the sync, I wrote to HR asking for the feedback and I was surprise to know that I am out of the process.

    I am super shocked, what the fuzz with this company?? Are they even hiring people ?? 1 question in DSP, I think anyone can solve in like 1 hours, plus I wasted like another 2 hours to include dynamic programming stuffs with coding guideline like variable naming stuffs and designing.

    Either, the one who checked the solution was so dumb to not understand the logic, coz I have put relatively minimal commenting, or they are not at all hiring but this is a huge blow to me as I can't believe anyone rejecting on the basis of a working, well designed and documented DSP problem being the fact I myself were a tech recruiter in one point of my career. Shocked!!!

    If anyone internals are reading this, buddy, I aint impressed and wasn't looking to join or continue for further rounds as I know you have a pretty scary 1 whole day, 15 one-on-one rounds, but this seems pretty unsettling. If you are a tech reviewer from inside, let your candidates know why you did what you did, I found this experience to be a reflection of your horrible accountability in your job. If you arent hiring, dont waste people time, ok!!!

    Saying, yes or no is one word, but it takes genuine effort to reach to that conclusion if you are a genuine individual else, it just a jerking around. Left with pretty much bitter taste.
