I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Slalom (Austin, TX).
I have been interviewing with a bunch of tech companies including Google, Facebook and other big companies. A friend of mine recommended me to Slalom (Austin) and I had couple of technical rounds which I cleared easily.
I had an in-person meeting with the interviewer in Austin.
It was the worst interview I've ever had.
Right off the bat, the interviewer seemed to have the attitude as if they were doing a favor on me by giving me a job. I've been talking to several other companies which pay much better than Slalom and I've always found them to be humble, respectful and felt as if they wanted me to join their company.
Here, it was the opposite. He seemed pretty arrogant about their 7 ?? offices and 4004 employees. I felt as if this would be a job where my creativity wouldn't be valued and I'd just end up being the employee no. 4005.
It felt as if I was interviewing for a position of a Walmart salesperson or a McDonalds counter crew. I asked for a salary which was above their pay range.
They ended up rejecting me. I guess because they pay such low salaries as compared to other tech companies, they want people who'd have nowhere else to go except Slalom.
If you have any other option, I'd recommend to go with that other company. Stay away.
Just for the record, I ended up being hired for a company in Silicon Valley.
