    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Khan Academy.

    Interview

    My process involved an initial screen with a recruiter, and then 3 calls/video chats with team members.

    The calls in general were pretty basic, lots of standard issue type questions, didn't really do much to analyze my skills. I think they were more interested in where someone attended university than if the person had the skills to do the job correctly.

    Everyone seems nice, the issue is communication. During the process, the recruiter said I would hear something shortly after the last call. Heard nothing. Followed up, heard nothing. Followed up again....crickets.

    If you're not going to hire someone, that's totally fine, but at least be a professional and send some sort of acknowledgement. It's absolutely classless: they lack the dignity to give a simple, 30 second response after hours are spent interviewing.

    It's a shame, because Khan Academy provides a wonderful service to students, and the people were nice on the phone, but the recruiter I dealt with lacked the basic ability to do their job.
