    Junior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amherst (Austin, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter, second phone interview with multiple people, 2-hour on-site interview. The CTO told me I was the only person who had made it to the third phase. I thought the third interview went well, and the recruiter told me he would get back to me within 1-2 days. I followed up with a thank-you email. After a full week, I received a cookie-cutter rejection email. Several employees including the CTO described the office culture as "locker-room," which was simply not appropriate.
