    Data Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Centro.

    Interview

    A recruiter from their California office reached out to me on LinkedIn regarding a Data engineer role in Chicago and asked me for a time to have a phone call. I gave a time but he never called. I followed up after couple of days and we scheduled another call. He went over my resume and gave me a brief intro about the company and role and said a recruiter from Chicago will reach out to me regarding next steps. I waited for few days but no one from the company reached out. I followed up again but the recruiter never replied back. I wonder why recruiter wastes their LinkedIn InMail and our time if they never want to hire someone.

    Big Data Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Centro (San Francisco, CA (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me with this role. I had a phone screen with the VP of Engineering. We talked about my current role, and then she asked me some Spark and SQL related questions. Heard back from the recruiter the next day that they would like me to come onsite. Had 5 rounds of onsite, 45 minutes each. Overall experience of interviewing was good, but I didn't hear back from them for about a week. On asking the recruiter, I found that they'd need some more time as they were interviewing other candidates. Some kind of communication to let me know would have been nice. They made an offer eventually, but I decided to accept another offer I had.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Centro.

    Interview

    The first step was to complete a one-sided video interview. Then, I was invited to the office for an in-person interview. 15 other applicants were also there. They gave us a tour of the office, presentations about the different departments/positions, and fed us lunch. It was unlike any other interview I've done before. As I networked with the other candidates it seemed like I was just as qualified, but most of them had close ties to the company. I figured they ended up pursuing those candidates instead.

    Digital Media Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Centro in May 2019.

    Interview

    I was referred to this job opening by 3 different people, one of them that actually works high up in the company. I had many conversations with these people and they said I would be perfect for this role, so I was extremely excited for the interview process. I had to apply online and it took several weeks for HR to actually get back to me and the employees said that HR was one of their worst departments, esp. because they don't get back to you in a timely manner. I finally set up a call interview and it was just a pre-screening and talking to a recruiter at the main HQ (which is not where I was going to be actually working). The phone call was VERY odd. I could not hear the woman at all and when I told her this, she said she could hear me perfectly so to carry on with the interview. Every time I would answer there would be a long pause (about 10 secs ... which is awkward) and she would respond oddly in a way that she wasn't listening to what I had just said. She also kept repeating the same questions. After that call, I didn't receive any update for about a month which said they wanted to pursue another candidate.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    The overall interview process was great and (almost) everyone was very nice and professional. Questions were very fair. The one thing I will say is the recruiter was one of the least professional and rudest people I've ever spoken to, recruiters or just plain humans. The only way I can describe her interviewing style is AWFUL and straight up disrespectful. I saw this mentioned in a couple other reviews, and felt the need to confirm its truth. Candidates should not be treated this way. Not to mention being stood up during scheduled times and not asking about salary at the beginning, which felt like wasting both sides' time because expectations were not aligned.
