Principal Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Splunk (San Francisco, CA) in July 2016.

Interview

I applied online and the recruiter reached out to me and was very responsive throughout the hiring process. Had tech screen first. Then went onsite. Team profile is very impressive and they have a mix of veterans and young talent.

Got a very competitive offer but at the moment decided to pursue another opportunity.

    Phone screen interviews. Designated person didn't come to the interview so another replacement person came and he was pretty naive and lost track of his initial question. Algo and data structures

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Splunk.

    Interview

    One phone screen with HR, one with hiring manager and then on-site. On site with 6 people over 5 hours. Day later got news was not selected. Only 2 coding interviews and rest were culture and behavioral fit, one person was over video who conducted coding. Coding was easy. Everyone was super nice.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Splunk (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Onsite, meeting with 4 or 5 people. Few technical questions. I thought the interviews went well, except maybe one. Several weeks later and nobody has gotten back to me or responded to pings. Even if I did poorly I should get a "sorry we've decided to go another direction...". No answer at all? That's on them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Splunk (San Francisco, CA) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Interview process was standard, 1hr phone screen followed by onsite. I was initially skeptical when I read glassdoor reviews.. but almost all of them are true about recruiter ghosting! Their recruitment process is extremely broken. Recruiter would not respond to your email post onsite for a month. If you manage to get hold of him over phone, he would promise to call you before 5 pm back with the update .. and ghost you again for a week. In my case recruiter called me after my onsite to tell me that he would like to invite me onsite... really? Can you at least check your records properly before calling a candidate? I have been given time and kept stranded for a call by this recruiter!! Anyways.. after you have made sure that onsite has gone nicely and you have not done any mistakes, code written to completion, recruiter called me to tell me that they are still looking.. and could not tell me anything why I was passed.. From the kind of answers he gave I was able to figure out that they themselves dont know what the expectation is. DO NOT waste time, money and energy with people like these who do not value their word/ your time!
