    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OwnLocal in May 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with them. It was the standard "get to know you" interview where they ask questions about you and your resume. He asked me to send in a coding sample after the interview. He had mentioned several times that they were swamped with applicants and gave no specifications on what kind of code to send. So I sent in a simple linked list, thinking it might be helpful for them to look at something they already knew about. I was soon denied to continue on in their (6-step) interview process. I was rather annoyed because I hadn't been given good instructions on what to send in. They could have easily asked for something more complicated, and I would have sent it.
