    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at in February 2018.


    An HR recruiter reached out to me after viewing one of my online profiles. After a thirty minute phone call talking about my technical experience, he forwarded a 90 minute online assessment with HackerRank. Of the programming questions, my answers passed 90% of the test cases. One week later, automated rejection email, with no feedback from the assessment. I asked the recruiter if I could get any feedback from the coding assessment (I'd at least like to get a little self-improvement from my time investment) and never heard from the recruiter again. From reaching out to me first, I had the impression that they were serious.
