    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OkCupid in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process itself was positive. Everyone I interacted with was friendly, comfortable to talk to, and did a great job of explaining what the role entailed. Typical interview questions pertaining to the role, with nothing that was out of left field or anything that was too difficult to answer without preparation.

    I would have rated this experience 100% positive even without an offer, but there was one big hold back in doing so (the reason for the neutral rating). I completed a company specific cover letter, followed by an interview with the recruiter, then a writing exercise, and finally a 2:1 interview with the leads for the job. The process was about a month and I was excited and invested by the end of it. After my final interview, there were numerous emails exchanged between myself and the recruiter, he asked a few times if I was still interested, if I had other interviews or offers on the table, and told me that the feedback from my final interview was very positive. He emailed more than once after the deadline passed for when I was supposed to hear, letting me know a final decision had not been made and that he would be in touch as soon as that happened. And then... nothing. It would not have been so bad if I had not proactively been told more than once that I would hear either way, and the communication up to that point had been very good so I fully expected to see a decision even if it was not in my favor. I stalked my email, held off on other opportunities, emailed a few times with no response, and finally realized I was just not going to hear anything more from them. It was like a bad break up. I would have really appreciated a decline letter so at least I knew if I might be considered for future openings, should reapply if anything else opened, or even just a thanks, but no thanks. It was really unexpected considering how the rest of the process went.
