    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Synthace (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    Bad culture and waste of time! Hiring manager who was supposed to, never explained the role. Sent a link to two coding tasks on Hackerrank to solve. Then, had the most bizarre experience of pairing with two not sociable person for next 45 mins. Bizarre and weird!
    Interview

    First round: Role explanation with Hiring Manager (never happened as they were poorly) Second round (hackerrank problem solving - time bound): Two easy hackerrank problems. Third Round (code pair): Most weird. Two not sociable person with a problem to code pair and sent the link in first 30 secs. No ice breaking talks or conversations! Most uncomfortable 45 mins of coding. Then, one of them explained how they are building a "compiler" which was funny as they were clearly building some APIs but calling them compilers to sound clever. Then, this person boasted about their number of degrees and education. Very weird. Never asked about how I felt or about the company or the job/role. Don't know if that's the office culture there to work under pressure and get judged so I won't recommend. Seems bad culture.
