WPT test.

2 Answers

They have a very high passing score. If you fail, you don't get the job.

The high passing score and personality test requirement for high dominance/low patience profiles only creates an environment of overbearing, smart but egotistical people with little or no domain expertise. In other words, superiors who will treat you condescendingly but not actually know anything about the details of the business or key product functionality. Run - don't walk -- before even taking the tests. Focus your efforts in finding a position with a more functional organization. Less

The questions were thoughtful and not the typical questions, but it's not trying to trip you up. They also don't do a weird "what would you invent" type question. Sure, they investigate creativity, but in other pragmatic ways. It was a relaxed conversation, like a catch up coffee with a friend because it's more conversational. I felt that the interview process was challenging and again thoughtful. That's why I say it was hard.

I don't recall anything unusual or unexpected. They were so warm and really wanted to learn about my past contributions, fun ideas and impact. The team I met with was so supportive of each other. Sign of a very strong leader, who also mirrored the same type of values. Less

They asked random questions that had nothing to do with recruiting. Mostly to do with hobbies, educational background, money looking for. Interviewer kept interrupting and changing topics that had nothing to do with a standard Sr recruiter ; metrics, closing candidates, pipelines, sourcing methods, etc.

Tried to highlight actual recruiting metrics and placements made. Hiring manager kept interrupting asking random questions and hobbies, etc. Really just a weird interview and no feedback was given. Complete waste of time and no structure. Less
