They reached out for phone interview, I answered and they never replied again. Didn’t even phone interview me after they had reached out to set one up. I tried reaching out and asking on status and no answer.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paylocity in Jun 2022

Interview

There were 2 separate technical interviews both were fairly easy. First one was with 2 engineers after talking about my general experience for about 15 mins, they gave me a piece of code, which was related with writing a limited Cache. I basically created an interface which was just the written protocol and implemented some of the methods as straight forward as possible. Their questions were mainly related to SOLID principles to see if i know what am i doing and why am i doing. It would be good to work on these principles and understand it fully. Second interview was with another lead, I was expecting him to ask me to do some code review but this didn't happen, we had a casual conversation about software engineering, best practices, things i did and i have been doing and details of the job. This took a bit more than an hour and it was a nice conversation. I guess i was able to show my knowledge mostly with this interview. He also asked my career preferences for the future.

Interview Questions
  • - Designing a limited ImageCache That will be able to save n numbers of images and upon reaching the limit it will start overriding the variables with FIFO manner - SOLID principles - most important part of the interview - Best engineering practices on the given code - Challenging engineering problems that your dealt with before

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Paylocity (Prague) in Jun 2022

Interview

HR contacted me within 1 week after I applied online. I had one video interview with the hiring manager, followed by a code test, and video interviews with 3 other people. While all of the interviewers were very nice, HR did a VERY POOR job of getting back to me. They basically just ghosted me after many hours spent interviewing with their people. This is incredibly unprofessional, and I would advise anyone to stay away from this company because their HR will treat you like garbage.

Interview

There were 2 rounds of interview. Both technical. In the first interview there is also a small coding challenge. After that they told me that I got through the process and they will send me an offer. Then they pretty much ghosted me and didn't send any offer at all.

Interview

I had one recruiter interview and one hiring manager interview. Two weeks after the 2nd interview I reached out to the recruiter twice. I never heard back. It's not a great culture or employer branding.
