    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at empowr (San Diego, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Terrible experience. Questions were dumb and irrelevant. Interview process was long because they take forever to get back to you. Was invited to come onsite for the final interview and before I did, I did my due diligence and did some research - Google/YouTube fanbox, sms.ac and you will find out all the info you need to know about this awful company. I'm writing this to warn other people out there that might get lured in by this company. All of the positive reviews you see on here are probably from their HR dept. I've never once found any positive information about this company. You won't find anything on empowr because they re-branded from fanbox but you will find a ton of negative information about sms.ac and fanbox. You are warned!

    Interview Questions

    • Skype interview was easy - basic tech interview. Take home test was an extremely poorly made test with terrible english. Questions made absolutely no sense they tried to use mathematical notation on some and it was completely incorrect! This was when the red flags started to go off. When you learn about their tech stack you will see they are still stuck in the early 2000's.   Answer Question
