    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Fareportal in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was smooth. The scheduling of interviews were properly done. The HR recruiter seemed nice at the beginning of the process especially in scheduling but at the end of the process he showed his unprofessional behavior. First intro call with HR recruiter, then Phone interview with the manager - basic oops concept questions, design patterns/ principles questions. Then there was a final 2.5 - 3 hour Skype interview. Two sessions each consisted of 2 interviewers. Sessions included detailed programming questions, debugging strategies, string manipulation coding exercises, performance related questions, etc. All interviewers seemed nice throughout the conversation except the HR recruiter.
    After this final Skype interview, I never heard back! I followed up by emailing the HR recruiter twice and by leaving him a voicemail but never got a reply from him. So unprofessional and unethical behavior by the HR recruiter. A complete waste of my time!!
    On reaching out to a current employee, she said that their policies changed and are preferring only local candidates!
    Having spent time in participating in the process, a simple email stating just the result without any reasons would have been enough. Rather the HR recruiter chose to completely ignore without letting me know of the result. Must be an unprofessional amateur who is unfit to be in this industry! Probably dodged a bullet as their work environment might be so unprofessional and unethical.
