    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Dropbox.

    Interview

    Had an internal referral, then phone screen with the recruiter, which went really well (knew from my internal referral), but then a day later was informed the team didn't want to have a conversation. It's fine, but when I meet all the qualifications, both minimum and preferred, it's bizarre the team wouldn't even want to have a conversation. Why post a job if you're not going to speak to qualified candidates? I also never heard back from the recruiter on why the team was not interested in having a conversation. Poor experience and recruiting from Dropbox.
