I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Vulcan (Seattle, WA)

Interview

Started with a short phone screening by HR. Mostly questions about how well you knew/admired the company and its work. Then had an in-person meeting with the hiring manager over coffee. Seemed like the organization was going through a lot of transition and a lot of the questions were based around dealing with changes/ambiguity.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vulcan (Seattle, WA) in Nov 2019

Interview

The recruiter was very communicative and the time from application through the gamut of interviews to the rejection was fast (a month). Everyone I met was polite and professional. That being said, both the recruiter and I should've done more due diligence during the initial phone call. We went straight from the recruiter call to a 3 1/2 hour onsite. Once I made it to the on-site step and met with all of the stakeholders, it was obvious I wasn’t a fit. My skills and experiences were a semi-fit, but the work statement of their role wasn’t. It was a good learning opportunity on improving my due diligence questioning.

I interviewed at Vulcan

Interview

Initial phone screen with recruiter who gave me an overview of the org, its history, and the role. Scheduling was very easy, they worked with me to accommodate my work schedule and other company interviews I was trying to navigate. Recruiter and manager were very responsive to my questions and emails. Met with the manager of the team next to get an overview of the role and learn more about the team. Third interview was on site, 4.5 hour loop. I enjoyed the collaborative discussions I had with folks. Spoke further with the recruiter about the org, did a software architecture exercise round, a pair programming code exercise with a future teammate, a algorithm exercise, then got to ask any follow up questions to the manager. Received an competitive offer shortly afterward. The manager offered to (optionally) schedule chats with two engineers on adjacent teams to learn more about their Vulcan experiences. Took the time to meet up with them to ask more questions about the day-to-day, and then accepted the offer!

Interview Questions
  • Pair programming and unit test exercise with a future teammate

I applied online. I interviewed at Vulcan

Interview

The interview process was straightforward, efficient, and quite comfortable, which was especially nice from a candidate experience perspective. I received a screening call from the senior recruiter where we discussed the company, the project overview, and any questions I had. A few weeks later I had an on-site interview with members of the team which covered one technical portion and a couple more general personality-type and team-oriented sessions. The contacts throughout the process were responsive and great communicators who made sure I had all the information I needed at each step. I was impressed by how much care they put into the candidates during the process.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Vulcan (Seattle, WA) in Aug 2019

Interview

I applied online, and within a day I heard back from a recruiter, arranging a phone call for the following day, where I learned about the organization and the position and shared my background and reasons for seeking the role. After that I was invited to do a video phone interview with the hiring manager, where we dived into depth on the job, the project and what I could contribute to it (including my knowledge and skill level). A few days later the recruiter checked in, and invited to me the in-person interview. The in-person was 4 hours including a lunch break, where I met with 4 sets of people, all of whom were very kind and the conversations were illuminating. There were some technical questions, including a pair programming exercise. This was an incredibly smooth and positive interview process.

Interview Questions
  • Now that you know more about the various aspects of the project, where would you best contribute?

Interview

Outstanding. One of the best interviews I have ever experienced. Jason was an awesome recruiter providing updates frequently and always answering questions directly without sugar-coating. Then the hiring manager followed-up with a personal email that made it hard to not accept the offer. Highlight: they moved quickly - total time from initial contact to offer was less than a month.

Interview Questions
  • This was not a very structured interview - just conversations.
