Interview

It was terrible, I felt the recruitment completely not interest on me since the first contact, but for some reason they talked to me. The first technical interview was easy, I was able to solve the problem in a just a few minutes, I did the complexity analysis, everything went well. But in the next day the feedback which I've received was that I was not approved, and they couldn't provide me individual feedback. Well, such a waste of time. Please, if you don't like a candidate for any non technical reason, despite of being so weird, please don't start the process with him, don't make him lose time.

Informal chat at a cafe, interviewer spoke in depth about his ex girlfriend, was a strange process, I did not find this to be related to the role, so it was off putting for me.

Interview

I applied online through a Glassdoor advertisement. I was sent a general Hackerrank test at the start of the process with 1 question to be solved in 30 minutes. There was also to be a chat with a recruiter and a systems design question. I was not able to complete the process due to other commitments but overall the recruiter was friendly and I would be happy to speak again.

Interview

The hr reached me out on Linkedin and we had a phone interview. After the phone interview, he sent me an OA. Then three weeks passed till now I didn't get any reply. Note that I asked him if there is any update through Linkedin but he did not reply to me at all. I think even the result is a rejection I deserve a response at least.

Interview

This was for yelp canada. Short phone screen with recruiter. She told me immediately about going thru to the second stage which was a video call with a DS manager. Did'nt go past the second stage but the 3rd and final stage is apparently a virtual onsite consisting of 4 or so individual interviews with different DS and product people. FEEDBACK: I was told in the phone screen that the second stage would test technical & communication skills plus business product intuition. The interview was totally academic and almost seemed like they were looking to do a checkbox approach. Nothing too sour though since its understandable, maybe that makes it easier for them to be objective. Plus the interviewer was very nice and supportive as well as patient.
