    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CareGuide (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Algorithm skype then inperson mini algorithm thing, then a project and presentation.

    Horrible place filled with nepotism. (People hiring twins and family members from waterloo students), getting you to go all the way out to Toronto from other places and cancel your follow interview after given verbal commitments of next interviews
