I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Patreon (Berlin (Germany)) in June 2020.
I had in total 9 interviews + 1 case study. The process lasted +3 months and so many more hours. I had to take days off and be available in the evening (difference of time zone).
I had the first interview in June 2020 and got the final (negative) answer end of September 2020. The process was really long and psychologically exhausting. I might have been really unlucky in the process as as the company decided to recalibrate the role and to restart the hiring process because of internal changes after I went through all 9 interviews. I had wait three weeks after I had the final interview to send me a simple rejection email after +3 months of process.
I appreciated the content of the interview as well as the vision of the company. I felt always really welcomed and heard, and I could sense a strong sense of commitment for the product. However I got disappointed (and clearly traumatised) by the way the information were (not) communicated to me. I felt kept in the dark and I always had to insist to get more clarity on the hiring process (which was a bit chaotic and obviously uncertain).
After having waited so long and invested so much, the least a company could have done is to give me a feedback call. I had to write the company to obtain this call. Nevertheless I was left with a strange feeling and stopped applying for a while. Candidates are human beings not only candidate for x company. They invest a lot of themselves (emotionally, intellectually, physically, practically) and obviously the further they get into to process to biggest is the hope. A company should be able to give them back what they received. And that could have been simply symbolised by a simple feedback phone call.
