    Corporate Paralegal Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies (San Francisco, CA (US)) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I had a phone screening with one member of the finance team. The person was very kind but the questions were kind of difficult for an introductory phone screening. There were a lot of questions about security insights as well as policy questions about Palantir. Overall the experience was good but I had the feeling that the questions were not so much related to the role.

    Interview

    I was rejected by the HR recruiter during the initial "culture screen" because they didn't believe that I would pass the technical screen. So let me get this straight...a non technical recruiter inferred that I wasn't tech savvy after a 30 minute call that was completely behavioral...lol how does that make any sense? Seems like a very pretentious bunch of people.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies in March 2017.

    Interview

    Not great. Received a phone screen, in which the interviewer sounded as if they have already decided that they don't want me but just going through the process. The interviewer was 20min late, came across as extremely disinterested in what I had to say. Not a good experience at all.

    Standard enough process. Initial phone screen followed by phone technical interview. The technical interview wasn't easy, and I expect they only take the best. Should have prepared a bit more probably
