    Mobile Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport Beach, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Phunware (Newport Beach, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen followed by a 4 hour homework test.
    After completing the test project I was told I missed many areas( I knew I didn't), but they will not tell you which areas they are referring to. They offered me to resubmit but of course I said no thanks, I won't fall for that trick again. Seems like they're trying to get ship-able work from candidates so they can use the work? Do not waste your time on the test, as others said, they most likely will come back with something like "you missed many areas", even if you didn't. If you did missed something why not point it out? I should of listened to other reviewers on here. If that's how they conduct their interviews, I can't image how they operate when you get hired.
