    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Handy (New York, NY (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    There were 3 steps after initial talks with HR.
    -First spoke to a Director of engineering on phone to talk about my current role and past experiences and a general conversation about fit.
    -Second was a technical phone screen where I was asked to code up an algorithm question on Codepair.
    -Final step was the onsite, where I had a couple of algo questions, a design and conversations with PM and VP and HR.

    The experience was quite good. They seemed to have a good collaborative culture. Everyone I met were very nice and seemed like they would be fun to work with. My read was that it would be a good place to work.

    Operations Role Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Handy.

    Interview

    It was terrible. I had my first interview with HR and it went well. However, when someone from operations interviewed me it was a TOTAL disaster. Operations is super important and the fact the employees from Handy can’t schedule an interview or communicate properly tells me how terribly run their team functions. I’m glad they moved on with my candidacy because it probably would have been a disaster working for that team. But I think it’s beneficial to let people know how terrible of an experience it was interviewing with Handy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Handy (New York, NY (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached to me and setup Technical code round. Question was average but I could not solve it for all test cases. Interviewer was very helpful and provided insights. Also, interviewer stayed with me longer to answer all question that I had and explained projects he is excited about. Got a negative response next day. It was a good experience.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Handy (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Phone call screen and then a phone conversation with a member of the Product team.

    Same experience as the other reviews here - this individual sounded totally disengaged and came across as condescending. On top of that, he insisted on taking the call from speaker phone and sounded like he was on the opposite end of the room so I had difficulty understanding him the entire time.

    Handy has had this job listed for at least 6 months. Maybe they should consider letting somebody else handle the interview portion since it's apparent that this individual is leaving a negative impression on candidates.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Handy (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    No interview just app download and fill out form and get approved within 24 hours easy and approvable is easy depending on your background check then once you get approved you can star claiming jobs from the calendar and working right away the only thing that is bad is that you have to maintain your rating or they deactivate you on the spot which kind of sucks if this is your only job because it was mine and they don’t even tell you in advance

    Application

    I applied online and spoke with the hiring manager in a phone interview, passed was given an extensive practical exam, completed the exam then they offered it to someone who was further along and had more experience. I didn't get a chance to defend my work - shady. i think they are crowdsourcing ideas.

    Thank you for your feedback. The practical is comprehensive so the candidate can gain insight for what the day-to-day of the role will entail, and we can ensure that the candidate is a great fit for Handy. We are committed to creating a transparent environment, so I am disappointed to hear you felt otherwise. If you’d like to provide further feedback please email us at recruiting@handy.com.

    Thank you,

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Handy.

    Interview

    I was invited to have a full onsite interview. It was one of the worst experience ever. I was supposed to meet 4 people, but was cut short after the second. Some dumb question, and interviewer was quiet and very non-communicative. Stay away from this.

    Handy Response

    24 Jan 2019 – SVP of People

    Thank you for providing us with feedback as this is certainly not the candidate experience that we endeavor to deliver. Generally speaking, when conducting onsite interviews for Engineering we will look to assess both technical skills (coding, architecture, algo, etc.) along with teamwork & the ability to effectively collaborate across different domains (eng, product, operations). But it does vary from candidate to candidate depending on experience level and position. Again, we regret that you had anything less than a positive experience while speaking with us.

    Thanks,
    Mike Wanderer
    SVP, People Operations
