    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at empowr.

    Interview

    1. Contacted by recruiter via LinkedIn
    2. Initial phone screen with HR rep
    3. Take-home coding challenge
    4. On-site interview

    The overall process was pretty standard based on interview experiences with other companies. However, after the on-site interview (in which I thought I did pretty well) I received zero further communication regarding whether I had passed the interview or not. I reached out twice to the HR rep who I had been working with throughout the interview process (and who normally would respond to emails quickly), and received no response.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at empowr.

    Interview

    1). Applied online
    2). Received a coding challenge done in either either Java or C#
    3). Onsite

    So the job description said 0-5 years of C# experiences and I confirmed in the Onsite if they were hiring entry level and they said yes. Two days later I got the rejection and I saw the same job posting but now it's asking for for 3-5 years of C# experiences.

    Don't waste people time and make-up your mind.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    1. Phone Interview with recruiter
    2. Skype interview with one engineer and a coding problem
    3. Skype interview with one engineer and a lead engineer and a coding problem

    The Skype interviews were completely unprofessional. The lead engineer was too "socially afraid" so he hid himself from the Skype camera, and while coding they went on mute and talked to themselves and laughed on mute. Don't join this company if you know the engineers are like this. Completely unprofessional interviewers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at empowr in June 2017.

    Interview

    Very impersonal, no human contact at all. A one sided recorded interview, which is unusual from information I received from human resources professionals. Read the reviews about this company, went through the motions, glad they did not contact me. Previously known as Fanbox. Saw several videos on how this company is a scam, not reputable at all. Some videos were removed due to a cease and desist order.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions and some allegedly "personality" type questions   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at empowr (San Diego, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The HR found me on Linkedin. I started with an online video interview with some basic background questions and technical questions to test your CS skills. Then I completed a coding puzzle challenge via email. Then I came in for onsite interview. Lastly, I met and interview with the CEO of the company

    Interview Questions

    • For Video Interview, just some background question, maybe some small technical questions to test your basic knowledge in Computer Science   Answer Question
    • For Coding puzzle, find the all unique occurrence of a word in a given matrix of characters   Answer Question
    • For Onsite Interview, implement a rock-paper-scissor game with specified rules and requirements (this is not a regular rock-paper-scissor game)   Answer Question

    Phone interview then an on-site interview with some technical questions. There was a programming quiz that was necessary to complete. After the programming puzzle the on-site interview was scheduled. Everybody was very lax and made you feel comfortable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at empowr (San Diego, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    They called and told me to make an app. After submitting the app, never heard from them again. It's probably a good thing because based on their reviews, this seems like a crappy company anyways. Applied so I can get some interview practices, even then, not worth the time. Just talking to the recruiter and they have no idea how they're making revenue by having the app or website that's similar to facebook. As an user, you can like/comment/share something and you get money. Too good to be true. Probably some kind of scam.

    Mobile Developer - Android Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at empowr (San Jose, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    After 2 rounds of interviews that went exceedingly well, I was slated to connect to a co-founder. Upon asking about how certain components of the back-end and front-end architecture interchange as well as how the authentication processes take place, the co-founder told me to stop wasting his time. He told me to download the app that's in an alpha stage, run through it, find questions about it, and reschedule an interview quite aggressively. As a software developer, this is a huge red flag. Any higher-up in a company, especially a startup, should treat their developers with respect.
