    Easy Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shift5 (United States) in Apr 2021


    I applied online, received a coding challenge, successfully comleted that, and then got invited for the interview. The HR person is extremely unorganized and does not know how to communicate over email. After giving her my availability, I didn't hear back for a week until I reached out and got informed that they now require availability for another week, so I did that.

    The interview itself was pretty great although the person was about 7 minutes late. But it was great talking to him, and he passionately showed some of the products to me. Based on that and my later correspondence with him, it seemed like I would be moving forward but I did not hear from that HR person even after emailing her after about a week after the interview.

    TL;DR - was a waste of time.

    Mostly about my projects, what technologies I have used etc
