I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Depop (London, England).
Was contacted by internal recruiter, expecting they knew what they looking for.
It was multi stage interview, spanning over weeks time: phone call, technical screening test on online platform and some hands on test during F2F phase. F2F interview on their premises partially were done over Zoom call with person not being in office that day.
Hands on test was completed but felt It was doing it in a way normally I would not do it. Test was mix of Terraform, Lambda, DynamoDB and Python.
Constantly trying put person outside of comfort zone, not really pleasant way of working. For some reason company apply same recruitment interviews to contractors, expecting them to work with them permanently.
Didn't received offer, reasoning for missing skills, which they never asked during interview process or conducting technical test. Felt like wasted some time, since initial contact to last message was over 2 weeks time. They should have mentioned this at very start, if it was critical for a job.
