    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ViacomCBS.

    First they had online test and video conferencing interview two rounds. Very pleasant experience with interviewer. First video conferencing round with one person, pure technical, solving programs, identifying bugs in program- covering basic programming question- string manipulation- Data structure and algorithms . Second round was also similar with 4 panel members more with performance related issues and design problems in C#, SQL, webapi etc
    Did not go through as they were looking for much more strong candidates

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ViacomCBS.

    Interview

    Brief interview with Recruiter. Was invited to come on site to interview with hiring Director and VP. Interview process went very well.

    Unfortunately, the recruiter sent a few emails over the course of a couple of months saying there were delays in the hiring process, followed up by completely being ghosted by the recruiter after about two months of being in contact. Really unprofessional, especially for a senior level management position that I interviewed for. Please have the decency to inform candidates if they are no longer in the hiring process.

    Technical Role Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ViacomCBS (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Positives? Apart from a few reschedules, the communication piece was there.Entire process took about a month.

    The negative rating for this interview experience is plainly because a interview process should not take 3 interviews to realize you do not want to go forward with a candidate.

    After literally checking out the entire layout of the building and getting a step by step tour, checking out what system is used, and receiving nothing but seemingly positive feedback- no offer.

    Part of me feels like either the team did not know they were wasting their time, or they were aware all along. Otherwise it was exactly that, a waste of everyone's time, so it could have been a quicker process if 1) someone else was in mind, 2) if they were just trying to check off a equal opportunity interview process, or 3) if they knew the pay scale was not within their budget.

    Just a bit of a strange experience, and could have been consolidated into 2 interviews, not a drawn out process just to say no.
