Growing pains going from a start up to a more mature company.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Prezi (San Francisco, CA) in October 2017.
I was contacted by a recruiter followed by 3 skype interviews with the Hiring Manager from San Fransisco and two Data Analyst from Budapest. Everything went well in all the three interviews.
Then I was called for an Onsite Interview in their San Fransisco office. Event was for an entire day. Was given 3 task to complete which includes writing SQL queries, doing statistical analysis and given them the result.
In between the three interviews were scheduled with three different managers. They asked questions to me I answered. They asked do I have any questions about Prezi, I said no. I had been talking with Prezi people(San Fransisco & Budapest) for almost 2 months now. They already answered all my question so I didn't asked much and focussed my attention in completing the task. Day ended I shared my findings and left the office.
Following week recruiter mailed me I didn't go through. I said okay but can you please share the feedback to me. The feedback which he shared was not making any sense. This is what he wrote to me:
"your lack of questions in the interview process left the team feeling like you had a like of interest/passion in Prezi. A few interviews were cut short because you didn't have questions and chose to work on your assessment. While we respect your decision to focus your time on the project, we allocated time for individual interviews and for your project. "
Please give some valuable feedback so that candidate can respect you as a company even getting rejected. If a person was not interested in your company why he flew from other state to California for an onsite interview.
Please put proper interview process and move up in the technology stack. People in San Fransisco don't know how to do statistical analysis using any proper tools like R or Python. They didn't even choose the sample size properly for performing an A/B testing.
