    I applied online. I interviewed at The Climate Corp.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was contacted by a recruiter to set up a phone interview. This interview was with someone from HR. The questions were fairly basic- about my previous internship experiences, how I found out about the Climate Corporation, why I wanted to intern there.
    The recruiter said that they would contact me in a few weeks with the result but I didn't hear back. When I sent a follow-up email a few months later, I didn't receive any response.

    Interview

    I applied online and first had fit interview with HR and then was scheduled for a 2 hour interview with 4 different engineers from 4 different teams. I had to use google hangouts and Coderpad for the interview. Coderpad takes up tons of bandwidth and even on a great wireless network, I would recommend complete this interview hardwired.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Climate Corp (Seattle, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Phone call with recruiter, followed by a phone call with the hiring manager. Then a remote one hour technical interview that involved questions and coding.

    I passed the one hour technical interview so I got invited to an on-site. The on-site was your typical 4+ hour Google style interrogation. Started off with lunch with the hiring manager. A strange experience as I was required to ask questions for the entire duration of lunch. Apparently, our 30 min phone conversation was all the hiring manager needed to know about me. I summoned every ounce of creativity I had and somehow filled up 45 min. or so of one-sided conversation.

    After that I got hammered by one person after another on technical questions. Some interviewers were better than others. Some interviews went better than others. Overall the process embodied many of the worst aspects of technical interviews, and left me drained and feeling like an imposter.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at The Climate Corp (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I received an email online. The recruiter said there will be a phone interview next week. It's a screening interview. The recruiter is nice. She leads the conversation and open my mind. Just ask some questions about your experience on resume. Which is the best language you use. What is your favourite project and describe it.
    However, after the interview, I wait the response for 1 week. But no one contact me. After I sent an email to request the progress, they reply me immediately with the rejection letter.
    The phone interview environment was nice but I dislike the one-week waiting and the immediately response. It seems like they forget to consider me in this week and only spend 1 minute to reject me.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your favorite project?
      Why you choose our company?
      What technique languages you use in this project?
      Which is the best language you use(do not recommend normal language such as java.)
