Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies (Washington, DC) in Apr 2021

Interview

Phone call/screen with a recruiter who was nice. They asked about my background, skills, compensation, location, etc and told me more about the company. Then a technical video call with an engineer. This person seemed to want to show me how great they were and talk about their experience a lot, and not listen to me or my experience, which threw me off. Then went to a coding question which was not particularly difficult but in which I made a fairly basic mistake. The interviewer kept asking me what I did wrong over and over again in different ways so that it seemed like they just wanted me to say I was bad, although I clearly had already admitted my mistake. Then they hung up very bluntly.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies in Apr 2021

Interview

Basic HR interview which was straight to the point. I tried digging deeper into the basic benefits, but I guess that's G-16 classified because I got shot down. The exact words were "that's private information". Duly noted! The second phone screen got off to a good start, as the talent acquisition rep was 10 minutes late, with no warning or heads up. A variety of questions were asked. The interviewer sounded very weak-kneed as if a script was being read and the interviewer did not want to ask the questions. The interview was not difficult, it was just weird, very weird.

Interview Questions
  • The company gets rid of your boss tomorrow and they elevate you to that role, what is the first thing you're going to do? (we're not looking for the "hire another recruiter" answer- in a weak-kneed voice)
  • What do you hate about your Boss? (in a weak-kneed voice)
