  1. Data Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chess.com (San Jose, CA) in May 2022

    Interview

    Met with a recruiter, followed by 2 rounds with the CTO and head of the data engineering team. Both rounds had some questions mainly deep-diving into my experience. The interviews took about 3 weeks to complete because of multiple re-scheduling issues. Ghosted after the third round for no discernible rhyme or reason. Very poor, do better Chess.com
    Interview

    Mainly questions regarding my previous projects and experience.
