    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Venables Bell & Partners (San Francisco, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Process at first was smooth, recruiter reached out and set-up a conversation with AD. After that conversation, it took a few days for them to get back with next steps. We scheduled and in-person interview - 3 people, 1.5-2 hours. It didn't seem like they wanted to be there - so perhaps they had already interviewed candidates that they loved. They took a very long time to get back to me, after thank-you's it was over a week and a half before they let me know they moved forward with other candidates. Seemed a bit cold. As though they didn't respect my time.
