    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at OpenDNS in April 2016.

    Interview

    Very good company but poor 'post-interview' process. I interviewed for over 3 rounds. The interview sessions were coordinated really well and the interviewers were pleasant throughout. But after attending all these rounds the people at the company suddenly became silent and stopped communicating with me. I even emailed them twice to check in on the status but no response. 2 weeks later, they sent me one of those template emails which stated that they were not moving forward with my application. This is very unprofessional. After so many rounds, I am fair in expecting at least a phone call or personal email with feedback. The lead designer didn't provide any feedback even though I emailed him for it. Overall, it all ended poorly even though I had a lot of respect for this company's hiring process. I am not complaining because I didn't land an offer, but because as a job applicant I was neglected towards the end. Bitter experience towards the end for me. PLEASE TREAT ALL YOUR JOB APPLICANTS EQUALLY.
