    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tango Card (West Seattle, WA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter from the company and asked if I was interested in the company and willing to have a quick phone chat. I responded yes and 2 days later we had a nice chat and later that day I heard the CTO wanted to meet and chat. Due to my schedule I couldn't meet for another week. I received confirmation details from the recruiter to meet the CTO near their office.

    We had a nice chat, too. He said he would like me to come in to meet the team soon and he'd get the recruiter to set that up. I emailed the recruiter the next day to follow up and mention the CTO wanted me to come in. The recruiter responded that it would be a few days later at 9-2 with a lunch thrown in but no other details.

    I arrived 10 minutes early and when I walked in a woman asked who I was there to see. I said I was there for a 9:00 interview but didn't know who I was meeting. I dropped the recruiter's name but the woman told me no one by that name worked here and I had the wrong place. I assured her that wasn't the case and at the point an engineer walked over and took over. He directed me to sit in a little area until 9:00. 9:00 we went into a little conference room. I started off by asking if there was a schedule of who I would speaking with, and when was the lunch. He said there was no lunch but I would be taking a walk with the Project Manager to a local coffee shop.

    1st hour with this engineer was a little overview of my resume followed by a few interesting coding questions.

    2nd hour was with the PM and we walked over to a local coffee shop where we discussed what I was looking for and how they did things. That's when I found out she'd only been there 4 months so I felt a little skeptical since the company seemed so stable.

    3rd hour was with 2 engineers, one Sr and one Jr. They asked a few general Java questions and we proceeded to do some decent coding challenges. We talked about my resume some and I explained some things. I asked them how they liked it there, etc. At the end of this hour I felt like the smartest guy in the room which also made me skeptical as I'd rather be the dumbest guy so I can learn lots of things.

    4th hour was with another Sr. engineer who gave an interesting OOP challenge. Talked a little about my resume and that was about it.

    30 mins with the CTO, going over things with the company hierarchy. That's when I found out he'd only been there 8 months, and the former CTO and CEO were having tension and it was best they parted ways. Again a new employee less than a year left me a little skeptical. I asked about benefits and PTO. They have a 401k but no matching despite being a 35 person company making millions in revenue. PTO started off at 10 days a year, which I personally find ridiculous. We ended the conversation that he would meet with the team either that day or the next and the recruiter would let know soon.

    Fast forward 4 weeks I still hadn't heard anything so I can only assume they didn't like me, or the recruiter failed to email me back.

    I'm tempted to give a negative experience overall because I never received a final response but I can't be sure who is at fault there. On the other hand, any company that thinks 10 days of PTO with no 401k matching is an appealing offer should re-evaluate.
