    Analytics Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Teradata (San Diego, CA).


    I received a phone call one afternoon from the recruiter. The recruiter was extremely rude and he did not tell anything about the position itself when asked. The initial feel of the company was super bad. The recruiter had a thick accent so he was very hard to understand. Recruiter said that he was a java developer before and he himself would take the technical screening. He scheduled a webex call for the technical screening in the same week. Just right 2 minutes before the call, he sent an email that he had a meeting. We rescheduled the webex again the next week. The same thing repeated. Just right 2 minutes before the call, he sends me an email that the requirements are changed and a week later I received a standard email that the position is no longer available. This is not expected from such a big company like Teradata.
