    I worked at MyHeritage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free catered yummy lunches twice a week, also a fully stocked break room with plenty of snacks. Company outings to movies and other fun things monthly. Great commissions! Easy to get to location, lots of parking.

    Cons

    One manager lacked the experience of knowing how to do my job. She would ask me how to do certain things. They weren’t clear with their customer that’s they’re set on yearly auto pay.

    Senior Java Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Or Yehuda (Israel)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at MyHeritage (Or Yehuda (Israel)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    No parking places anywhere (and they DONT offer you to use the visitors parking lot)
    No front desk or secretary to guide or connect you with you interviewer.
    HR lady is non responsive on the phone so forget about that.

    Met by two guys which barely introduce themselves.
    Then they reveal the fact the position is 60-80% PHP instead of Java (classic Bait and switch), and become un pleasant when i'm surprised to hear it.

    They ask about former project and technologies but dont make an effort understand what you explain about it (or simply cant?).
    Then they ask a design question which they dont even know what they are aiming for.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell about former projects and technologies you used.
      Design a Logger module.   1 Answer
