    Corporate Function Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Twitter (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    One of the worst and slowest processes. The recruiter spoke with me in Nov for a position. Two weeks later I get a rejection email and again in two weeks this person reaches out to me to schedule a discussion ( don't know if the earlier rejection was by mistake or design). He struggles back and forth for 3 weeks to get a time slot from hiring manager. Schedules changes twice due to the unavailability of hiring manager. Then finally the interview happens over phone. I agreed for the call during holiday break as I could visibly see the effort this recruiter was putting. The manager was calling me from home. In last 15 min's of the call he wasn't even listening to what I'm talking as he was busy managing his kids. I completely lost my interest there. I wasted my 45 mins which I'm not going to get back in life.

    Exclusive: Twitter to Give All New Parents 20 Weeks of Paid Leave

    May 1 will be a happy day for Twitter employees-at least those expecting a baby. The social media site is the latest tech player to offer so-called "gender-neutral" parental leave, guaranteeing any parent up to 20 weeks of fully paid time off. Other companies that have embraced such policies include Etsy, Facebook, and Change.org.
