    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SweetLabs (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Absolutely horrendous experience. Their whole hiring process is shambolic.
    Applied online. The recruiter contacted me the same day and set up a chat with hiring manager. It was a telephonic interview , we mostly discussed about my profile and about the company. I was invited for an onsite loop. Everyone were 'sweet' and treated me well on the day of the interview. I spoke with few of their engineers and the director of engineer, QA lead. It went on for about 4 and a half hours( which I'm never going to get back).
    I dropped and email after a week to the recruiter enquiring the status. You guessed it right, complete silence. The next week, I received an offer from another company I was interviewing with, so I called the sweet labs recruiter, she quickly came up with an excuse and hung up saying she would call me back . The recruiter later called(at last) me that afternoon to inform they are going through some re-org and they have frozen their hiring. So if I am ready to wait for couple of months they would definitely have me in their team*slow clap*. This company is a joke.
    I wasted my my whole day interviewing with them and took a day off as well.
