    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Khan Academy.

    Interview

    The recruiter and all of the interviewers were really nice and helpful.

    There was a take home project (an alternative to technical interviews), 1 round of discussing the project, 2 technical phone screens (why even opt for the project?), and a non-technical interview with the lead dev. I passed all of the technical interviews, felt like I did well on the non-technical chat, and didn't get an offer with no reason as to why.

    To invest so much time in the process (especially the project), get through all of the rounds, and get blindly rejected is upsetting.
