    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Weight Watchers (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted briefly for senior engineer role by the recruiter. I was trying to get a call from them since a few months. After a week, I was scheduled a call with the hiring manager. The call was non-technical discussion about few basic technologies and my Resume experience.

    I got an email asking for certain dates and times for the onsite interview. I sent my availability but then they cancelled my interview saying that I had already been rejected by someone else from their team few months ago. I never interviewed with weight watchers in past but somehow they were able to reject my candidacy based on misleading information in their system. The recruiter was very unprofessional and rude.

    I made another offer from a much better firm the following week and thank them for declining my candidacy.
