    Full Stack Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Symplicity Corporation (Arlington, VA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, No phone interview and direct call to the office for an on-site interview. Basic programming questions, overall resume and experience and some coding exercises. Everything went well. Selected for the last round which was a take-home assignment. Completed the take-home assignment within 24 hours and submitted. The assignment fulfilled all the requirements.

    No response from the recruiter within 7 days. Then got a reject with no reason assigned. I can't think of a reason that there was something wrong with my assignment. Probably they found someone ready to work at a cheaper rate.

    Very unprofessional behavior. A reason should be mentioned either over a call or an email so that the candidates should get the proper response. Even having everything done right and still not getting an offer feels like a waste of my time to me.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Symplicity Corporation (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied during the career fair. Had a 1:1 interview the next day which I think went really well. I showed them samples of my work and the interviewer seemed really impressed. No response from that day on, Sent them like 3-4 follow-up emails, no response at all.
    Please at least respond saying yes/no so that interviewees aren't kept hanging.
    After about 2 months, I get a mail saying the position needs more experience. No words!

    I applied through the company's website and the process lasted for 1 week. There was a phone interview with the recruiter, followed by an email consisting of multiple questions which I had to answer and send back. The recruiter then set up a phone interview with one of the Software Development Manager. The manager asked few questions about my experience, the projects which I had worked on and why had used particular technologies for certain projects. There was a short online coding assessment test where a question was given and you had to solve it as the managers observed while you solved the question. Towards the end, the recruiter mentioned about following up,

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Symplicity Corporation.

    Interview

    I was contacted on Linkedin to interview for the role. First up was a phone interview with the HR manager. The interview consisted of the usual question -tell us about yourself? Why Simplicity? Are you willing to relocate? Salary Expectations.

    The call seemed to go well - I was told a few selected ones will receive a follow up questionnaire.

    In the questionnaire - there were questions pertaining to fluency with CRM's that cater to governments. Other questions were regarding product management experience.

    I thing I disliked the most was failure to communicate the status of the application on multiple inquiries.
