    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nisum (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    2 rounds of thorough technical interviews each for 1 hour. Interviewers were very good. Recruitment teams were lazy in scheduling time. And didnt provide me any update after the 2nd round. Basically they shut down saying no projects.

    Software Engineer (NodeJS) Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nisum (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Very basic questions asked, which you could search on Google quickly to regurgitate. It seems the interviewer was more interested in a text book response rather than demonstrating competency. The standard at many startups is phone screen, coding exercise, in person review, but Nisum seems to combine the first two.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nisum (San Francisco, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Phone Connector (3rd party) <-> HR Coordinator <-> Staff (manager, manager's manager, manager's technical lieutenant.)

    5 people - 2 HR, 3 stakeholders

    Order of calls
    Connector
    HR Coordinator
    Manager's Manager
    Managers technical lieutenant
    Manager

    I did well. Managers indicated they wanted me to start the next Monday. The connector said the interview went well and that the HR Coordinator wanted to talk to me. The HR Coordinator stalled and did not call me during 3 scheduled times the rest of the week. Late Monday the connector finally tells me the job had been filled. Just what did the HR Coordinator want to talk about? It's still a mystery.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nisum in May 2015.

    Interview

    Interview wasn't too tough, went through some brief javascript questions, super basic stuff, I guess applying as a junior they don't expect you to know much. Also asked some questions about backbone & angular, i.e.: what is a controller what is a service what is a view. How to make an ajax call

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nisum (San Francisco, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Attended 2 interviews. First one 1 hour, second one 30 min.s(Skype). After these technical interviews they said I did good in the interviews. They are ready to make an offer and need to take HR round. All in HR round is bargaining, reducing the salary they mentioned before technical interviews. Keep on saying you are eligible for less salary. Did anyone experienced same?

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nisum.

    Interview

    After a phone screening involving general questions regarding work experience and previous projects I was offered a technical on-site interview.

    The on-site covered basic Javascript, HTML5 & CSS3. Had a few string and array manipulation questions specifically involving recursion, i.e. reverse a string and an array with potential arrays within arrays. Some javascript async questions with setTimeout.

    Javascript design patterns and object instantiation patterns and best practice examples.

    Questions involving using either native JS or jQuery to manipulate the DOM and append and remove comment blocks and the best practices for creating them from a HTML style perspective.

    How to create certain web layouts and what your HTML and CSS would be to accomplish it.
