    Frontend Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I interviewed at Onfido in April 2018.

    Interview

    This is just a phone call, and a rather offensive one. After telling me the company is well funded and how cool the product is, he asked for my current salary and expectation. He then proceeded to immediately counter with a well-below market rate, a rate basically that will leave any worker in London barely survivable. Like other reviews before this one, the interview process left a very bad taste in my mouth. If they do this on the first phone call, who knows what else they'll do after you've joined. You may get no notice and no severance if they fire you or have to work 70 hour a week. Or, if you do well, patronize you with share options that's next to useless. I would seriously advice against interviewing with this company.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. My current responsibilities and achievements
      2. Reason for looking for another opportunity
      3. Current and expected salary   Answer Question
