    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Time Inc. (Tampa, FL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Completely unprofessional. Recruiter called early, then missed our scheduled appointment. We rescheduled...this time he kept his appointment. Interview went seemingly well, and then....GHOST. It's been a week+. No email, phonecall...no nothing. If you are a talented engineer, take your talents elsewhere. Poor interview process is often indicative of poor company culture.

    talked to the recruiter, and couple rounds on site . Then did a project for the group. They got back to me very quickly. It was a fairly technical role, they wanted someone with tech background and willing to learn the business

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Had multiple in person meetings, phone calls etc. made two trips to offices - total lovefest all the way. Was then completely ghosted. Would never consider this company again. So very telling of the environment. Thankful that I completely dodged a bullet. I moved forward with another offer from a company with much less turmoil. I was grateful for the way it turned out - but surprised by the lack of professionalism by seasoned executives. Don't waste your time here. The company is a mess.

    Initial call with HR was thorough. In-person interview was a few days later with 2 managers at separate times. Conversation was in-depth and interview went well. I followed up and a week later, at 7pm on a Friday, I got a voicemail that they chose a different candidate.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Was referred by an employee and had a very long conversation with a recruiter. Never heard back. While I can't hold it against someone for thinking I'm not right for the role, a quick 'you didn't make it' message is the least you can do for someone you interviewed (particularly via an internal referral).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Time Inc. (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very extensive interview process to assess your talent. All of the people I met with were smart, knowledgeable, and had interesting careers thus far. They are trying to weed out top notch talent vs. mediocre ones.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Time Inc..

    Interview

    Got phone interview with HR first and was invited to an onsite interview. Onsite interviewers were all very nice and the whole process was pretty laid back. They introduced a lot about the whole team and daily jobs and were willing to answer all questions.
