    Pros

    They cared ALOT about their interns. We had frequent speakers and were invited to several company events. The mentorship was good.

    Cons

    Sometimes it felt like everyone at the company was blowing to much steam their own way. It's a culture where everyone admires the company- which is a good thing. But sometimes it seemed a bit much.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Agilex Technologies in November 2014.

    Interview

    One recruiter for Agilex reached out to me through LinkedIn. I had a little back and forth with him via email, and then spoke with him on the phone once. I was then later put in touch with another recruiter for Agilex. The guy called me one day and never even introduced himself by name. From speaking with him I deduced that he would be the recruiter I would work with further for the interview process.

    The guy asked me a few weak technical questions for screening purposes and that was it. I then later heard back from this guy via phone call at around 7:30pm a day or two later to discuss a good time to have a phone interview with one of the project managers. 7:30pm being so late at night, I asked the recruiter to email me and I'd get back in touch with him. Part of the reason I told him to send me an email was so I could get his name! Two days later, he wrote me with a vague message. But I was able to gather that he wanted times that would be best for the call with the PM, especially considering the 7:30pm late-night call a day or two prior. Two days later, I had my phone call with the PM - the recruiter was supposed to be on the call as well, and sure enough he couldn't make it!!! The PM was a nice guy, but never asked me very detailed questions. You could tell from the conversation the guy knew what he wanted, but he never really wanted me to cite examples or discuss flow of anything in JavaScript/jQuery, anything about HTML, CSS, or any of the rest of my background. I think he was just curious to know if I was able to hold a conversation.

    After 30 minutes, the call ended well with the PM. The PM told me prior to hanging up that there were other PM's within Agilex that were looking for someone to fill similar positions, and I should hear from them shortly. I assumed shortly referred to the next 5 or 10 minutes? Never did receive another call that day. Anyways, I then heard back from the recruiter 2 days later. When the recruiter wrote back, he told me that they wanted to schedule an in-person interview at Agilex with 2 PM's. The in-person was a week later. I show up on time, and sure enough, after checking in with the receptionist it took the recruiter about 10 minutes to meet me.

    The recruiter then brought me to the small conference room where there were two PM's. Turned out one of the PM's was a last second addition. No problem. The other of the two PM's in the room was one of the two that was scheduled to meet with me. We start talking, and about 10 minutes into our Q and A one of the other PM's that was scheduled to be in the room finally arrived. The interview continued.... very few in-depth technical questions were asked. They really wanted to know if I had used AJAX before, if I knew what JSON was, REST services, etc. The interview with the 3 PM's was more of a behavioral exam as if they were studying my reactions and how I would answer questions. The interview lasted approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. I perhaps said a couple wrong things here and there (it was 1.25 hours, and I don't plan and practice the answer to each and every possible question they could potentially ask), but the interview went incredibly well I felt. At the end of the interview we made our parting remarks, and they told me that the recruiter would be back in touch with me.

    7 days after the interview I wrote the recruiter and asked about the status. No response. 10 days after the interview, I wrote the recruiter asking about an update, and again no response. I wrote again yesterday, two weeks after the interview and sure enough no response. My email yesterday asked whether I should keep Agilex on my list of companies to consider, or to remove from my list for consideration. In the end, with no response it became obvious that interviewing with Agilex was a huge waste of my time.

    I hope the recruiter gets a nice promotion for being a pain to work with. I've dealt with run-around situations with companies in the past, but this was a true pain in the rear.
