Advice to Management
Jared and leadership team continue to stick to the plan.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at OppLoans (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.
The first step was a technical phone screen, that included hands-on coding with the interviewer (dev manager) observing and asking questions.
I was brought into the office a few days later for a series of interviews, that went as follows:
1. Junior engineer did another hands-on coding test, and followed up with a few perfunctory questions about my resume and my experience. Left without giving me an opportunity to ask any questions.
2. With the development manager, whiteboarded the design of a program to simulate a common board game.
3. Two senior engineers came in to ask tough questions to determine my language knowledge and experience. One was very distracted, constantly on slack throughout the interview, and even got up to leave for part of it. I again had no opportunity to ask questions.
4. CTO came in to ask about database design.
The interviews were scheduled for 1-4, but I did not leave until after 5:30.
