    SRE Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Upthere, Inc (Palo Alto, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had two onsite interviews with this company and in that time received three completely different descriptions as to the responsibilities and qualifications required for the role. The descriptions differed to such an extent that no single candidate could have reasonable expected to qualify for more than one of the three descriptions. In the end I was told that although "they really liked" me and thought that I was "a really great culture fit", they would pass on me.

    My advice to UpThere is that the team should seriously discuss and agree on the duties, responsibilities, and qualifications of a role before interviewing for it. I mean, I realize that UpThere is a startup operating in "stealth mode", but must the responsibilities and qualifications of a role be considered too confidential to disclose to a candidate?

    Interview Questions

    • I signed a nondisclosure agreement concerning the specifics of the interview process, but I don't think that It is giving away any secrets to describe one of the questions as follows:

      We had a problem that it took us several weeks to figure out. Let me describe it to you and see if you can figure it out in the next 15 minutes or so...

      I worked through my analysis to a certain point and was asked "doesn't this just set off alarm bells in your head?" My thoughts at that point were: "obviously not since it took a lot longer than that for it to set off alarm bells in your heads..."   1 Answer
