I interviewed at Splunk

Interview

As a candidate, I spent 2 hours for technical screening rounds and 5 hours/1 day to interview onsite. Recruiters are available any time before the interview, after the interview, they don't have the courtesy to call and tell the results. If they don't give feedback, that's acceptable. But not letting you know the results for few days and getting to know from automated emails indicates company culture.

Interview

Recruiter called me after I applied on a random day of the week without any notice but that was not a big deal. We talked for 20-30 mins about the role and the recruiter said that my experience is good and would like for me to fill out an assessment that would be sent to my email after the call. No assessment was sent. No follow up email. I sent a follow up email asking about an update. No reply. At this day and age, it seems the least the recruiter could do is say just we’re moving on with another candidate over email at a minimum. I would expect better from a brand like Splunk so hopefully they improve.

I applied online. I interviewed at Splunk (Warsaw)

Interview

The manager was asking very random questions it did not feel like he/she actually knew what will be the biggest challenges of the role. I know it was just a new starting/built department however overall there should be some idea behind the move. Asked about the career part development seemed pretty surprised as it is an odd question to asked.(maybe its US style)

I applied online. I interviewed at Splunk

Interview

Most unpleasant experience with a recruiter. Note: The position is based in Canberra. The first interaction with the recruiter was via email. The recruiter sent an email asking for my availability for the interview, without providing any information regarding the form or content of the interview. After I asked for more details via email, the recruiter said the interview is on Zoom, but did not provide a link. I was expecting the link to be provided closer to the interview. On the day of interview I did not receive an email with further instructions. I called the recruiter's phone number 5 mins after the scheduled interview time. After introducing my past work experience, the recruiter made the decision that I am technically incapable to work with micro-services, despite my past experience working with it. I repeatedly stressed that it is hard to evaluate my technical suitability without knowing more details about Splunk's architecture, and the question should better be asked by an engineer. But the recruiter insisted that I "touched the red line" and is not accepted by "the company's value" based on her "gut feeling" and was unwilling to continue the interview. During the interview I asked the recruiter if the recruiter can tell anything about the service discovery at Splunk, but she was unwilling to answer because "it is not her job".

Interview Questions
  • Describe your past work experiences. Do you know about micro-services architecture?

The interview process is very typical where you first talk to the recruiter for about 20-30 mins, and then you have the video conference with the hiring manger in the next round. Not sure what happens after.

Interview

I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter to set up time for a first round phone screen. I replied with my availability right away and never heard back. I followed up twice and it has now been two weeks with no response. If they went in a different direction candidate-wise, I would have appreciated being told such, rather than just never getting a reply, rejection, automated response, etc.
