    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at YP (Pleasanton, CA).

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview process. Review of your work experience, why YP, etc. You get to meet the team and some leadership if you get that far. I was a referral so my process was probably a bit shorter than most.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YP.

    Interview

    Skype call with two interviewers on the other side. One manager and one senior developer. Both look so serious. At the beginning they said this is a javascript position but doesn't matter if candidate has good cs fundamental knowledge and is smart to pick up their tech stacks.

    After introduction, they open an online document and asked a question. I said I'm more familiar with Java. The manager became impatient and insisted to code in Javascript. I got syntax error in my function and said i'll need to google it because i don't code in js as daily basis. The manager said then we need to cut the interview now.

    They look like I'm wasting their time. You guys wasted my time too. Why didn't you asked recruiter to explain at the beginning.
