  1. Sr Android Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Zello (United States) in Aug 2021

    Interview

    Was told to submit my profile since I have over 12 years of experience and am one of the original developers out of the first 800 apps ever presented to the marketplace.

    Was told I wasn't worth an initial interview due to a miss-spelled word on my resume that must have slipped through and the CTO who said that also felt I was better suited for contracts.

    So my experience was very negative CTO's actions show me he doesn't care about bringing on top talent and doesn't have what it takes to be a strong leader. This could be why the android app lacks proper support, is always failing, and has bad reviews.
    Interview

    Declined from the initial interview.
