    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pearson (San Francisco, CA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    1st a 15mins call with recruiter, followed by an 30 mins phone call few days later, and an 2.5 hours video interview a week later for final rounds. Conducted in a extremely unprofessional manner. The final was scheduled for 4 hours and 5 interviewers, 2 interviewers not showed up, only last for 2.5hours. Few days later told I was too junior for this role. During the interview, you could tell few of interviewer were not really knowledgeable, they asked questions but they only known the superficial answer. And the worst thing is, two of them, asked me to write code on some codepad, and they didn't even bother to open the link and put the question there, they asked me to share my screen which is ridiculous, and only said the question, during the coding exercise, they were eating there lunch or something, really unprofessional and showed no respect what so ever! The sound they were chewing their food was super distracting while you were coding during the interview. This is the worst interview experiences I ever had in my life. Two other interviewers were pretty decent and know stuff.

    Interview

    My first interaction was with HR, which was a quick call to go over my experience. The next 2 interviews were video interviews with lots of questions about my experience in relation to the position. My last interview was a phone interview. Although only 30 minutes was set for each of the interviews they lasted well beyond that 30 minutes.
