  1. Sales Development Representative (SDR) Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stack Overflow (United Kingdom) in Dec 2022


    I got ghosted by this company twice. First time was in October 2022 where they invited me for a first interview but no one showed up to the call. I was alone in the call for 15 minutes, I sent an email and after not getting a reply I left the call. Fast forward to January 2023 I get an email from Stack Overflow inviting me to an interview again. Obviously with the current problems in the tech job market I accepted because I was still desperately looking for a new role. However, I should have learnt from the first time... They did the exact same thing. They ghosted me again. I was in the call alone for 20 minutes, they didn't reply to my emails and didn't even bother cancelling/re-scheduling the call. I wouldn't recommend anyone waste their time with these idiots!
