I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Vertica (Bangalore)

Interview

I connected to a recruiter for a suitable role and was contacted for interview. I attended 3 rounds of interview each taking more than an hour with over 5 members in the panel. After every round I got a positive feedback. I answered 90% of their questions correctly and was very satisfied overall. For a week I was promptly contacted by the recruiter for each round and got immediate feedback. The nightmare started after the interviews. I had discussed before that as I am on notice period, I wanted a position that needs immediate hiring. The hiring manager was v pleased to hear that I could join soon. After the third round I did not hear back from the recruiter. So I made a follow up call and I was told that the overall feedback was 'pretty positive' from everyone. And that he would let me know after meeting with the team. After no updates for a week I called again and was told someone in the team was on a holiday. This week I received an automated rejection email for the position. I understand completely if they found a better candidate, however what I did not understand was why no feedback? After interviewing a candidate for 3 hours you can atleast share an honest feedback. I am very disappointed but going by the way they treat a candidate I wouldn't be interested in being part of such an organisation.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Vertica (Boston, MA) in Feb 2020

Interview

It was one of the craziest experience. I was contacted by recruiter from Micro Focus. Initial phone screen and then 1 hour long phone interview with hiring manager. I was given couple of links to review and was asked for a feedback. After that I was invited for an onsite interview. It was 6 hours long interview with 45 minutes sessions with different team members. I presented my ideas about the product based upon the link hiring manager shared with me. I did share some designs and share some ideas about tools I use and different aspects of UX. Two weeks after onsite I was asked to share my ideas about their product via email and I was asked to share the design idea too and after 5-6 follow up email they said they are moving forward with someone else. I felt I was used for my ideas and they faked interviews just for brainstorming the UX part for the betterment of their product. Guys please be aware do not share your ideas and information in depth, tackle interviews with this company smartly.

Interview

The interview process was of 5 Steps: HR phone, Tech Screening, Assessment, Onsite interview followed by another interview with team. Got through all the 3 rounds first and went to MA for the onsite interview. Onsite interview was 6 rounds (each member of the team )in total with a discussion of 45 mins each with a lunch break of 40 mins. 4/6 rounds i have done good. The other 2 where interviewer got a list of general questions that i didnot expect and in the other round neither me or the interviewer could not connect to what we are speaking as that round was conducted in hurry and he wanted to apply a real time example from my prev exp on current role which is not possible as testing on hadoop was way far different from rdbms. After a week got a response that they are not interested to move forward

Interview

The interview process was well defined. I was firstly reached by a recruiter who asked the basic background questions and than sent my details to the hiring manager. Hiring manager called me in the following week to have a behavioral interview round while going through my technical skills. After this, I got a call from the technical lead who took a technical screen for me focusing on databases knowledge and UNIX skills.
