    PHP Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at News Corp (Sydney (Australia)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    1. Phone screen by HR
    2. Face to face interview with Platform director
    3. Technical coding test
    4. Face to face interview with team members

    I took all the steps of interview process.
    After one week I asked feedback from the platform director by email and he told me he was finanlizing some docs and gave me feedback one week later.
    Now it is the third week and I did not get any feedback.
    I spent lots of time with all the steps of interview.
    At least you should give me some feedback, which is respect.
    I think they are rude and arrogant, so I do not recommend anyone to apply this position.
