    Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Walnut Creek, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yapstone (Walnut Creek, CA) in May 2015.


    One on one interview, they are so desperate to get people; interview is easy. Not difficult to get in. Once you get in they will work you like a dog so make sure you take a vacation before joining. Have to work weekends, be in the office till 5pm must be in office at 8am. Not time to take any time off, you can not even go for Dr. Appointment and there is no work from home under any circumstances.
    Horrible place to work
