I have been working at McGraw Hill (More than a year)
Cool office in Pioneer Square, management will help with professional development
Some people don't take us seriously as a tech company.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McGraw Hill (Seattle, WA) in September 2019.
I was contacted by a recruiter. Afterwards I had a phone interview. After the pone interview I was invited onsite. The onsite interview went well until it didn't. I really though I was a perfect fit for this position. I mean who has 10 years experience with php and 3 years angular. The exact tech stack they were committed to. It all came down to the site reliability engineer asking me several questions about micro services. I couldn't answer. Who in their right mind is using php to build micro service architecture. Anyway. That is when it all went south. My php experience was using drupal, magento, code igniter, and symfony. That didn't cut it. Ever since this interview I have been educating myself on micro services. In the process of educating myself though .net core I realized the site reality engineer who was interviewing me didn't even know what he was talking about. Dude was deploying the same php code on the same hosted server which isn't a micro service at all. When I met the site reliability engineer I had an immediate feeling that he did not like me. From the first second we met hands I had an intuition that the interview was not going to go well.
