    Big Data Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sila Solutions Group in February 2017.

    Interview

    I have applied on the website for the "Big Data" Software Engineer position, got an email from the recruiter asking for a free time to schedule a phone interview. In the phone interview, the recruiter asked me to walk through the resume and I explained about my past work experience, my academic projects and how I am interested in Big Data. Now comes the twist, the recruiter asks me what am I expecting from the position since this is a "Big Data" position I told him how I wanted to work on Big Data. The recruiter says, you are a recent graduate you cannot decide which projects you will be working on you might need to work on any project the company provides and all, if you intend to work only on Big Data then Sila is not a correct fit for you. I applied for a "Big Data" position and any candidate who has brains tells that they want to work on big data they won't be saying I want to work in the accounts department. After that out of desperation, I told yeah I am open for all kind of projects.

    The call ended by the recruiter saying, he will talk with his team and tell about the next process. The next Monday I get a mail saying they did not find a suitable position for me. I was like gosh at least put some effort in writing an email to a rejected candidate, don't send the as usual template that you send to candidates rejected during screening.

    Advice: If you advertise a position that seeks specific skills and wants the candidates to work on all other technologies other than what the position requires, don't call the candidates and waste their time
