    Senior Tech Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Synopsys.

    Interview

    It was confusing. I spoke with a recruiter and the hiring manager. I was clear with the manager as to my experience and available work samples. I thought I interviewed well enough. I sent samples that illustrated a strong technical ability. The hiring manager then added an additional interviewer to 'probe my technical skills,' but without being forthcoming about this additional step.

    I felt the communication was poor, and the process showed disrespect for my experience - without reference to a judgment on my technical abilities.

    Submitted resume through recruiter. Got phone interview one week after, and then onsite interview comes after the following week.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Synopsys (Bloomington, IN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    5 rounds of interview. Phone call with HR, Coding round, Technical Phone interview, 2 webx video rounds, final onsite with 2 consultants.

    Very unprofessional and unethical bunch of jerks. The final interviewer is the biggest jerk I have ever seen. They assume a developer cannot do a consultant job. They figured out that after one and half months of interviewing. Total waste of time.
