    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Quantcast (San Francisco, CA (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and good, regular communication with a very good recruiter, and then a phone interview with a new employee who had only been their a short while. Then I was brought in for an in-person with 5 people, where it was suddenly reviewed how dysfunctional this company is. Two of the interviewers were less than 3 months in. One revealed that his boss had just been fired 2 days before, and he wasn’t sure if he was next. A VP who was overtly cranky and mean in the interview acted like I was threatening her job. I knew within minutes the culture was toxic.

    One of the best interview experiences I have ever had. Went through an internal referral, the interview process was very quick. Phone call with recruiter, hiring manager and onsite and final decision all within one week! Even though I didn't get the offer but definitely very positive interview experience. Everyone was very professional, great company culture, cool technology stack. Hope I get a chance to work with this company in future!

    Got the invitation to HR interview a week after the coding challenge. The interview only took about 20 minutes. I was asked to go through my resume and talk about my past working experience, especially my responsibility and contribution to the team I'm in. The HR also asked me if I was interviewing with some other companies and the positions I was interviewing for. About a week after the interview, I sent them an email about any updates of my application status and I was told that the position has been filled.
