    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CourseKey in August 2019.

    Interview

    The CourseKey hiring process is very odd to say the least. Some time ago I interviewed for a UX role, where after interviews with 3 people (including a VP) I got no form of feedback. Fine...move on elsewhere, thrive.

    So fast-forward to the present, I was surprised to be contacted by them for a UX opening and quite apprehensive for obvious reasons. But I decided to engage just to see if they changed.

    I had a phone screen with the hiring manager which went well, they explained the company, UX role, and company goals, along with the usual questions for me about my background etc.

    Next step was a design exercise to complete, which was submitted, and to my surprise no form of feedback afterwards.

    Now let's return to my aforementioned apprehensions. 1st was the lack of communication in the interview process, and the 2nd was for the design exercise. Their exercise is biased to their product, which for me raised a huge red flag, because it is an opportunity to get free ideas at the expense of my time and thought process. Also it is not indicative of how a designer will actually work on a real world problem with fewer of the resources they'd have as a candidate vs. to an actual employee.
