    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Nexenta Systems (Santa Clara, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    After brief phone interview with D. (one of the co-founder) came in person to their Santa Clara office. The on-site interview was a technical group interview (my favorite type) and at the end of the interview I was offered the job. I did not negotiate much, just accepted it. In the evening I received an e-mail from D. that they would like to proceed with the offer on agreed terms. I wrote that it's fine. Later I received an e-mail that some more people would like to speak with me. Little did I know that the interviewing process - after the offer - is NOT OVER!!!

    The "problem"guy turned out to be the other co-founder, A. I was warned before talking to him that somehow he does not like me (we never met before). At the end of the day I was told, they would rather proceed with offering me a consultant position - on some shaky terms (no one in sane mind would accept). One day later D. called me and told, the company would withdraw the offer co

    I never seen such an unfair practice. During the interview with A. I immediately did see, I am dealing with a workplace-bully. So in some sense I saved myself a vert unpleasant experience later. I think, the company faces a big challenge how to deal with "A" in person.

    Interview Questions

    • Q (in Russian): What did you do at Apple?
      A (in Russian, with some pride): Wrote the 68K debugger nub
      Q (in Russian - with some disgust on face): That was long ago, what else you can tell me?

      The bullying style of this gentleman was in very big contrast with my experience with other people in this company. I can't understand how it could happen. I do not want to deal with this company anymore, under no circumstances.  
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I accepted the offer ( $130K / years + shares) - but two days later the company verbally did withdraw the offer. The explanation was vague at best
