    International Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Etsy (London, England) in October 2012.

    Interview

    During the telephonic interview, I was asked normal questions related to background.. and also I was asked what I can think of to change on the site that will add value

    Then I was given an assignment to list 3 experiments (lean startup concept) to add value to Etsy. There was no time limit to complete the assignment, which rang few bells - are they planning to hire even if I respond in 1 month? How urgent is this need?

    Well, I spent so many hours to list those experiments, crossing off the ones that won't add value, and finally, I replied with answers within few days of my first interview and it has been almost 2 months, I never heard back. Despite my emails to them asking the status, I get no response.

    This is an example of company that is looking for ideas from candidates and not hire them -- so my advice is STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY
