  1. Engineering Manager Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DoorDash (San Francisco, CA)

    Interview

    Initial Reach out (Day 1):
    Recruiter reached out on LinkedIn. She scheduled time to introduce the position and gather interest. After that she connected me to the hiring manager for an exploratory call. At this point I figured, if there is alignment, they will begin the interview process so I look forward to it.

    Exploratory Calls (3 Screens: 1 Manager, 1 Skip Level, 1 System Design) Day 30+:
    Next the recruiter disappears for a 1+ week. After I follow up, some other recruiter replies back stating that the initial recruiter no longer works there. No problem, what's next? She schedules a Technical Chat with another Director. Fair enough, I suppose this is the starting of the interview loop. After that call, they schedule another System Design Round. And mind you, nobody - no recruiter calls to explain the entire process or the timeline guidance.

    Next Steps - Day 45+:
    By this time, an entire month had gone by, from the initial recruiter phone screen. 2+ weeks go by, another (3rd recruiter now) sends me a text message asking if I have time for a phone chat regarding next steps. We speak on phone. She tells me how excited she is for me to proceed to the next steps of the virtual on-site. Here's the kicker -> she tells me she will connect me to another (4th recruiter) who specializes in EM Role On-sites and will be connect with me.

    Day 52 (Virtual On-site - 6 Rounds):
    2 System Design,
    1 Team Building,
    1 Execution Style,
    1 Manager Goals,
    1 Product Acumen

    At the end of the on-site, I reached out to the recruiter to let her know that I will be expecting an update in a few short reasonable days. She immediately responds that she will debrief with the team in a couple of days will get back to me very soon! Alright, almost 2 months in process but finally done right? Nope.

    Day 60: Recruiter has still not given me an update after two follow up emails.

    Overall, this was 60 days long process with 5 different recruiters and none of them a single point of contact for me as the candidate and unnecessary duplication spread across 4 screening rounds and 6 on-site rounds for what --- absolutely nothing. For being ghosted by their numerous recruiters.

    Very time-consuming and very very negative experience interviewing at DoorDash.
