    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TheLadders.


    Starts off with a standard phone interview, then a three hour in person one that consists of coding questions with pen and paper, coding on the computer, and a personality based interview. Of the three part interview, the only one that was done well on their part was the pen and paper coding. The engineer that came in to review my answers was friendly, knowledgeable, and super helpful. The 2nd part involved building a very basic ios app on a macbook with an engineer watching you and answering questions. The engineer for that section was friendly, but on their phone the entire time, and when I got stuck on certain parts, his input was essentially "try googling it". When he did answer the questions himself, he appeared to not be very experienced with objective c, I was under the impression they just gave me whichever developer was free at the time. After completing the first two parts, I was informed that the team member needed for the last part was on vacation and they'd have me come back next week to finish that part. They never emailed me back. I sent 3 follow-up emails, and none of them were answered. If they didn't think I was a good fit, the least they could do is have the decency to tell me, let alone allow me to complete the interview. Incredibly unprofessional overall, and very little respect for your time.
