    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DataStax in April 2020.


    I applied online on the company website. The next day I was contacted by the recruiter to schedule a 30 min call with the person who was hiring manager for the role. I scheduled the video call for the following week. The video call was via Zoom. I logged into my video call but the host was in the other meeting.So I waited. I stepped away as my schedule was still not for another 10 minutes. Apparently the interviewer ended the previous call early and was online waiting, of course I wasn't there and she called my mobile phone 3 times in a row to let me know that she was on. Once we got on together, I was told that she was the EA to the CEO and that she supported him at his previous company. She was building the EA team at DataStax and looking to hire an ABP. I'm surprised DataStax allowed her to interview. She had no experience in interviewing as she was asking personal questions such as, "Do I have any children? Am I married?" Like wow! Really. Very unprofessional. I received the email within a week that I didn't move forward. But phew I'm glad I didn't. Please train your employees on WHAT NOT to ask in the interview process. I think I dodged the bullet in not joining this company.
