    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Synacor in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied in the beginning of June 2016 and got contacted for an interview. Was contacted by a Syncaor recruiter towards the end of June asking for a time to speak with me. We end up having a chat in mid July because she had a vacation planned between now and then.

    After the chat with her I sent her a follow up email and she said that they were waiting for the new QA manager to start and had postponed hiring until the manager was settled. Why they put feelers out when they were not ready tells me that they are not well organized.

    Here is the email she sent me (with some information redacted):

    Hi, XXXX –
    Nice to hear from you – thanks for following up!
    At this point, we’re waiting for the new QA mgr. in XXXX to start, and have postponed hiring until he’s settled.
    Then, we need to assess with him exactly what we need on the team, and take it from there.
    Sorry to keep you waiting, but these things take time. If yours is the background he wants, then we’ll continue.
    We completely understand that you are talking to other companies about their opportunities….if we take too long and you accept another offer, let’s still stay in touch!
    Thanks –
    XXXX
