    Interview

    I just need to get this out there because I know Yelp Managers read this like a hawk and respond to the negative feedback. Well, even though I didn't get the job and could honestly care less, I think the biggest slap to the face was the rejection email.

    "We've been fortunate to have many talented and qualified candidates express their interest in joining the Yelp team. " Followed by telling me I didn't get the job.

    Why express your fortune while rejecting somebody from a job they need to feed themselves and pay bills? It's like a slap in the face and some salt on the wound and is a pretty gross choice of words if you ask me.

    That's all I have to say. I could care less about your fortune of high demand and more about money in my pocket. Thanks for the opportunity anyways though!

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    The interview was much shorter and informal than I expected. There was a lot of talk about their culture and team work. Also many personal questions instead of questions regarding experience.
