    Interview

    Initial phone screening from a recruiter asking basic interview questions. Followed immediately with a 4-part writing assignment that took up a good chunk of my time. Then I had a 30-minute call with another hiring person. After almost two weeks of hearing absolutely NOTHING from the company, I figured they had moved onto other candidates and were unbothered to notify me. To my surprise, I got an email stating that they wanted me to meet with the hiring manager for an hour-long video interview. Another week goes by and nothing. They are not keen on communication it seems. I was then asked to do a final hour and a half long interview with two people and was told I'd hear back by the end of the week. After another week of nothing (typical) I received an email from a NO REPLY email address with the standard "we have decided to move ahead with another candidate who we feel is a better match for this particular position." No tangible feedback, not even a response from an actual person after investing several weeks of my time doing multiple rounds of interviews and a writing assignment with this place. For a company that prides itself on its open culture and investment in people, my interview experience was highly impersonal, unprofessional, and a complete waste of time. I think the most telling sign of a company and its culture is by how they handle the hiring process—and the HR department at Lightspeed clearly needs a lot more work in this area.
