    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arm.

    Interview

    Hirevue video recording interview, was difficult to show personality. Got asked multiple questions about content I claimed to have no experience with on my resume. Makes me think they didn't even screen resumes and just offered an interview to everyone who applied, which I found to be inconsiderate.

    Graduate FPGA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    I applied online with a current employee referral. I got a kindly - worded rejection email from an HR representative. The fact that they sent me an email from an actual person, with the job title mentioned, made a positive impression to me.

    Fresh grads apply to multiple openings at each company and will often receive cold, automated rejection emails with no feedback or job title mentioned. The career sites don't give personalized application status updates either, so you're left wondering who rejected for what exactly, never mind why.

    ARM HR, if you're reading this, good job. Please continue to show empathy and treat your applicants well.
