  1. Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Color (United States)

    Interview

    I'm generally not the type to leave reviews but the behavior that I experience during the last interview left me in shock. It was one of the worst interview I ever had.

    The first time I had an interview scheduled, it got cut short due to technical issues that the interviewer encountered. But despite the interview getting cut short, I really enjoyed the conversation and professionalism the interviewer had. The recruiter was also super helpful in getting the next interview scheduled.

    The second interview I had was a completely different story. Not only did the interviewer act like she did not want to be here. She did not explain the problem in depth and did not provide any clarification when I asked her questions before I starting coding. Afterwards, she was disengaged and seemed to be doing something else while I continued to write code and explain my thought process. During the implementation, I would also frequently ask her opinion to see if my interpretation was aligned with problem.

    However after I finished implementing it, she said that it was not what she was looking for and not an answer to the question she had asked.
    So I had to scramble to adjust the code with the time left. And although there was time left in the interview, she just said goodbye abruptly and logged off.

    I was excited to be interviewing here after talking with the recruiter and first interviewer. But this second interviewer really ruined the interview experience for me. I have never experienced an interviewer this rude and unprofessional.
