    I worked at UOL full-time

    Pros

    Good working environment and benefits

    Cons

    Traditional company, not innovative and don't have a growth plan

    Advice to Management

    Managers have their groups of friends who have big salaries way above the average, you only can growth if you get in this group, not if you are a better professional

    Software Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UOL (São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    This is probably the worst interview experience I've ever had in the past few years. First of all, two guys, that didn't even know my name, gave me a laptop with a few Javascript snippets to be be solved. By the time I was solving it, another guy entered the room about 5 minutes after I started the test and asked me to stop writing it because he wanted to talk to me. Alright. I started saying about my know-how in software engineering and asking some questions about the position. Not too much attention were given to my questions, but the worst part came when I started saying about some social programs I'm involved: including women in the IT industry. Mainly software engineer women. He didn't say a word about that. Told me that we were done and he didn't allow me to finish the "test". A day later, I'm asked by my recruiter to go for another interview. When I got there, they call me to tell me that the guy who was going interview me have canceled. He didn't even spoke to me to tell me in person that he couldn't attend me when I was waiting for him in the entrance of the building.

    My recruiter wanted to reschedule the interview, but that was enough for me. I told him that I was no longer interested in that position. I keep getting their job offers on Linkedin even today.

    I DO NOT recommend this company to any software engineer at all, but MAINLY WOMEN. Unless you're okay living in a disrespectful workplace.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't ask me anything apart from my experience. They gave me a laptop with a bunch of random Javascript problems to be solved. All the problems was very easy, random and no-valuable since print an inverse string order doesn't prove that you're a good engineer, nor evaluate your problem-solving skills.   Answer Question
