    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OfferUp.

    Interview

    The first step was an online phone screen. The person I talked to was super nice, the coding section was pretty easy and I had a good time.

    Then I went on-site for the rest of the interview. Full day, six or so people. I totally choked on the first question, every though it was super easy (nerves, I suppose) and one later one didn't go well, but overall I felt good about the day.

    They even brought in a VP that wasn't on my original schedule, which I usually think of as a good sign.

    So when I left, I felt pretty good about it. They said they'd get back to me by the end of the week. (this was a wednesday) I didn't hear anything, so the following Wednesday I called the recruiter to ask how things were going.

    "Oh, sorry, they decided last week not to make you an offer. I forgot to call you."

    Seriously? Super unprofessional. If that's what the company is like, I don't want to be anywhere near it.
