Application

I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Transfix (New York, NY) in Aug 2021

Interview

The interview process I went through was excellent. The first round was a take home that tested my Front End knowledge. The next round had questions that were relevant to what the company does day to day and some Back End questions. I can't say enough good things about my interview experience with Transfix. My point of contact, Steve, was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Transfix in Feb 2022

Interview

Received an email request to schedule a phone interview maybe a week or two after submitting an application. Had the phone interview but could tell rapport was off with the phone interviewer. She said I would get a response if I would move forward or not. Also, she pressed me on my salary range which I thought was tacky. Salary should be discussed and negotiated at the end, not in the phone screening. The following week she followed up via email and said the candidate pool was very competitive and they decided to move forward with other applicants. I feel I am overqualified for this position even though I have never worked in TA. I have similar skills and the posting did not specify TA experience was a requirement. Also, she said they moved forward with other applicants but it is still posted on their career page. I was interested in working for this company but in my research, they only have maybe three people of color among the executives and absolutely no black people.

I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Transfix in Feb 2022

Interview

The process was 4-6 weeks and very disorganized. Throughout the whole time meeting with them, there were 4 different recruiters handling my interview process. We discussed salary expectations on the first call and received quality feedback the entire way. When it came time to make a decision, I was removed from the process for having too high of salary expectations. Nothing along the way communicated that I was in the wrong ball-park. Overall a poor interview experience especially when the recruiter mentioned that they weren't even familiar with the industry.

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Transfix in Aug 2021

Interview

I was reached by an external recruiter on LinkedIn to apply to the position at Transfix. The interview process took a month including a few one-hour interviews and a virtual onsite interview round that lasted a complete day. One of the interviews was intended for a different role (frontend vs backend) and even after they recognized their mistake they continued with the interview asking frontend questions. Everything was looking fine, but when I expressed I was about to have a child, they send an email saying they will move in another direction without explaining why nor providing any feedback about my performance on the interview process. I think is fair enough for a candidate to receive meaningful feedback after expending several time on an interview process, even worst if is pushed to lose a complete day in his current job or if the reason for rejection seems to be discrimination for becoming a parent.

Interview Questions
  • Phone screener interview by the recruiter, programming interviews, onsite virtual interview with 5 sessions of 1 hour each (one of them was about frontend which is not possible for a backend position)

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Transfix (New York, NY) in Aug 2020

Interview

Contacted directly by the internal recruiter, who was nice and professional. Next step was 1 hour portfolio with the hiring manger, could present 1-2 projects of my choice. It went well and was straightforward. When I made it to the final round I was told it would be two separate 2-on-1 interviews, and another hour with the hiring manager again. Overall I would say that up until after the final round it was positive. However, I’m giving this a negative based on some key things: - take home design challenge: I know people are split on these and while they said only take 1-2 hours to complete, when I’m told I will be presenting it for 1 hour during the interview, there’s no way I wouldn’t put more time in to show my process and as much as I could. - without a heads up before the interview they asked me on the spot to record the presentation, which made me feel uncomfortable and no way for me to say no in the moment. While the challenge was using an unrelated company, the gist of the challenge was part of the core business so it does feel a little bit of a flag (aka soliciting free work) - after the interview both the recruiter and hiring manager reached out said there was positive feedback and to keep me posted on my other interviews, as they may need a few weeks since I was early in the process - the follow ups continued for another week, and then an excuse from the recruiter that they were having issues with timing and to not wait for them but they would check back in - this turned into over 5 weeks, when I finally reached out to close out the process and try to get detailed feedback on the interview since I invested a lot of time with them I was told they changed the parameters of their search (details made no sense but I won’t share more here) Bottom line sounds disorganized, and unprofessional to string someone along. It’s perfectly Ok to just say to a candidate they’re not a fit.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Transfix (New York, NY) in Feb 2020

Interview

I had a phone screen with their in-house recruiter, a phone call with the hiring manager, and then an on-site where I met with five different team members in focused, 40-minute sessions. Their recruiter was very warm and communicative throughout the process and gave me the impression that he's very organized and professional. They were very quick with giving me their decision and were eve transparent with their feedback. Even though I didn't get the job, it was one of the best interview processes I've been through.
