    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Better Mortgage.

    Interview

    It was a three part process. I interviewed with them via video chat and in person. In the first round, they seem like they really like me and said I was great at the assignments given, but as soon as I got to them in person, the person I met looked at me strangely. The manager didn't seem like he wanted to talk to me and avoided making eye contact with me. I was ultimately denied on the spot because I was deemed not a good "cultural fit." This is obviously something to be wary about because "fit" could mean anything but oftentimes in the start-up world it could be code for wanting people that looks a certain way or act a certain way even when they have all the skills and competencies to do a stellar job.
