    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Next Jump (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I met them at a career fair in school. Received a phone call at 8 pm same day, asking me for my availability for the next day for a phone screen(Friday). I gave them a time window and was told that someone will reach out to confirm the details. Did not hear back. Received another call on Monday, this time 8:15 pm(getting weird), asking for availability for an on-site interview. He just said see you at x time on y day. No email confirmation, no contact details, no address to report to.
    I still gave them the benefit of doubt and went on-site. No one at the reception, no way to get in the office. 5 minutes later a guy happens to pass by and opens the door for me, I tell him I'm here for an interview(but I had no name to ask for). He goes in, comes back after 2 minutes asking me if I was interviewing for a dev-ops position, which I had to correct. Waited for another 10 minutes for the first interviewer to arrive.
    Marketing team member comes in for a behavioral round, really decent person, had a great conversation. Finally, I was feeling positive. In the end, he says let me call someone from the dev-ops team for your next round(red flag again). I had to correct him too, that I am interviewing for a SW Engg. position and he said my resume had a note from HR mentioning dev-ops. Clearly, they were not prepared, neither did they remember who they have called in on what day. Reason- no formal confirmation emails.
    Technical member comes in next, hands me over a list of 10 questions, mix of HTML, Javascript, PHP and starts playing with his phone. Very basic questions. I did not do awesome, which I really should have to be honest. Asked him a couple questions in the end, and whom can I contact to check back on my interview status. He said we will reach out if you clear the 2 rounds(he didn't want to give me an email id, why so private?). Never heard back from them, did not feel like following up. Wouldn't want to work for such a company, who doesn't value the candidates time, and is not serious about interviewing.
    WHY DOES THE COMPANY BOAST SO MUCH ABOUT CULTURE AND VALUING IT'S EMPLOYEES WHEN IT CANNOT RESPECT PROSPECTIVE CANDIDATES?

    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Next Jump (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through career fair at Northeastern University in October 2017. Received call for an on-site interview the same day in the evening for 2.30PM next day(Friday)! Never asked me for my availability and they wanted me go to to their Cambridge office on a 16-hour notice. I politely asked them if they can schedule it for the next week as I am busy on Friday. I also told them that I can do a Skype interview if that sounds good. After a couple of back and forth emails, they were flexible and gracious enough to accommodate my need and scheduled a Skype interview with Victor Lin. Mr. Victor called me at the appointed time on my mobile phone because there were some technical issues with his skype. We hopped on some algorithmic questions and he asked me about my resume and experience. Finally he asked me if I had questions for him. I asked him about the next steps- and he told me that somebody will be getting back to me soon. It has been over a month and three follow up emails, but I am yet to hear from them.

    The key takeaways are-
    1. NextJump set me up for an interview randomly without asking for my schedule.
    2. They were flexible and scheduled it on Skype for me.
    3. Throughout the process I was contacted by a 'software developer'. So I am assuming that their devs double up as HR folks. Cost-cutting maybe?
    4. Their devs are not trained for HR related stuff. They set up interviews randomly and then forget to get back to you later on.
    5. Yes, it has been over a month since I last heard from them! Follow-up emails to the dev who contacted me have not been responded to. Atleast give me a 'reject', maybe?
    6. In short- highly unprofessional team wearing multiple hats and messing up everything in between.
