    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Swype (Seattle, WA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Received an email from the manager of team and scheduled an interview. Forgot to provide the location of the office. I went to the office and the manager totally forgot about the interview and was not even ready for it. Very inappropriate and stupid manager ever I've dealt with.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Very low salary. I totally wasted my valuable time here.
