Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Twitter (San Francisco, CA) in Aug 2020

Interview

- Initial chat with a hiring manager - Technical phone screen - Multiple interviews with 2 people on each spanning front end, backend, system design and behavioral. Everybody I spoke with was incredibly motivated, cheerful and happy to be talking to me. They seemed passionate about the work they are doing and made me feel super comfortable talking to them. Before the interview, an interview prep assignee chats with you for about 15 minutes to let you know what to expect - this helped a lot. By far the most positive experience I have had interviewing. It helps that every single person I spoke to was going to be on the team I was interviewing for - so it felt more personal than getting judged by some random person I would never see again. Everybody from the hiring manager to the recruiter to the interviewers were just fantastic. Highly recommend going through the process.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Twitter (Dublin, Dublin)

Interview

The interview process took 2 weeks. Phone Screen with the Recruiter/Hiring Manager and then 4 30min virtual interviews with the team. Questions were around self-awareness, processes, stakeholder management, time management, priorities, and adaptability. The hiring manager made a lot of pressure to run things quickly and during this time she was super responsive, but after the last interview, she just disappeared and did not respond to any emails I sent after that. As a recruiter myself, I'd never do this to a candidate. If you don't have an update, email the candidate saying that. It's very unprofessional to leave candidates not knowing what is happening or to no answer their emails. From feeling under pressure to move things quick to not getting a response. Not a great candidate experience.

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Twitter (New York, NY)

Interview

Had a call with a recruiter after being referred. A week later I had 5 interviews with the team. Each interview lasted about 30 minutes. I didn’t hear back from them for almost a month after until they finally sent me a rejection email. I was bcc’d, with what I can I only assume were all the other rejected applicants.

  • Why Twitter? What is your understanding of policy in the vertical? What are the jobs you would be if you could be anything?

Interview

This must be the most disrespectful interview I had. The interviewer had a very heavy Indian accent. He struggled with English. For over 20 min he stopped me at every sentence I said. Twice he made a mistake in his claim. When I pointed out his second claim is wrong, he dismissed it. This is how engineers are at Twitter, apparently.

The interviewer had a thick accent. He interrupted me every other sentence I said during the interview. At one point I pointed out a flaw in his thinking, he was confused then glossed over it.

Job itself didn’t match job description at all, which was disheartening, because on paper it seemed like a really cool opportunity Standard questions, from both the recruiter and the hiring manager, mostly behavioral didn’t get too technical

The interviews were scheduled quickly and everyone I talked to was on time. The process was more casual than some other tech firms, which I really liked. Everyone was friendly and answered my questions with honest and clear answers. This was a very positive experience.
