    Technology Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Westlake Services (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter was very helpful in the whole process as she was quick to setup an interview. However, the entire interview was a mess!

    Prior to the interview, the email confirmation told me to expect 3 interviewers but they only sent one of the three to interview me, which showed me they do not respect their candidates for this position in the slightest.

    As for the interview itself, the job advertised for a software developer role, but they were looking for a business analyst person, and because of this I was asked ZERO technical questions which left me frustrated as hours of preparation meant nothing as I apparently applied to the wrong role. Because of this, I knew that I would not get the position because HR fails to update their job description to reflect the company's needs.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Westlake Services (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was an initial phone interview. The gentleman was friendly and nice, but did not seem to completely understand the questions he was asking, which felt uncomfortable. He was attempting to give a scenario of "Six men walk into a room with six empty chairs around a circular table. What is the likeliness of two men sitting next to each other?" Of course, there are many ways to answer this question, but he continued to get frustrated as he kept altering the question. What a strange interview. But my frustration came when he said he would respond in a week or so, which seemed odd but acceptable, I suppose. As several weeks went by I heard nothing from him, even after an email asking if I was still being considered. No response. I'm not sensitive, but I believe that if you interview with a company it's decent to at least let the candidate know that they are no longer being considered for the job instead of blown off.

    Interview Questions

    • Ultimately the question became: "If a man is sitting alone in a room at a circular table with six chairs, and a second man enters the room, what is the possibility that the second man will sit in a chair next to the first man?"   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Westlake Services (Los Angeles, CA).

    The interview process was very pleasant. There were two interviews. One is with the your prospective bosses and coworker/s. The other is with the CFO and the President. The interview was mostly them trying to get to know you as a person as opposed to see how much you know. There was an excel test at the end. They try to give you hints if you don't know how to do a function.

    Interview

    had a couple phone interviews; first with recruiter, second with area manager. Offered the job that night and was in LA training a few weeks later. First interview was very simple. She didn't really know the job or the industry, just a yes I know how to do a few things and I passed Round One. Second interview was with Area Manager, seemed disconnected and wasn't paying attention most of the time. Typical questions about sales process. After completing a Personality test, Area Manager called back with Divisional Trainer on conference call and we chatted a little more.
