    Interview

    Got a phonecall from the HR guy to set up a phone interview with an engineer about a week later. HR guy was very enthusiastic and detailed. Phone interview with the engineer was ~30 minutes. Friendly guy. Questions were more of a discussion than a "quiz" type. He had simple questions like "describe stack overflow" but most of the time was spent talking about algorithms.

    Interview

    I emailed HR through an online job posting. I did a 15min phone screening, then a 30min technical screening with an engineer. They asked me some basic logic question and concepts about the web and black box vs. white box testing. I then came onsite which consisted of a 30min introduction, lunch, and then 5 individual interviews.

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Signpost (Delray Beach, FL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a company recruiter getting to know more about me and for me to learn more about the position. I had to take some short online assessment. I was told within a day or maybe 2 they recruiter would call me back either way. A few days later I made a follow up call. Again no response. I called again this morning 9 days later and got a voice mail. I did not leave a message. Interesting though a few minutes later I received an email they were not moving forward. I was probably overqualified for the position based.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Signpost (Denver, CO) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I had an interview over the phone by the senior recruiter based in NY. The interview went well, and we even got into the compensation package at the end, and I was not being picky at all. ( What kind of recruiter gets into compensation when they aren't going to hire the candidate?) The HR department at SignPost is so unprofessional! The recruiter lied to me about receiving an email over the weekend with a PI survey. I ended up receiving it when the following week was almost over. I was still nice to the recruiter ( I am a reasonable guy), and she told me "we would be in contact with the next steps". This recruiter wasted my time, and she misled me! Terrible HR! Need to be honest with candidates, and be mindful of their time too! I hope this info helps other candidates.
