    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Plentyoffish Media (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    After a phone screen, I had three rounds of on-site interview

    1A- Interview with the engineering manager. Mostly general questions, and a system design question
    1B- Just after that, interview with 3 software engineers. I got specific questions about databases, a whiteboard coding question and a class diagram question

    2- HR + engineering manager - questions about my previous jobs

    3- Extra interview with an architect on a class design question. Given what I've been told before the interview, this extra interview is not part of the standard process.

    Not a great experience overall. For the most part, the technical people don't seem to be used to interviewing.

    But the biggest problem for me was the responsiveness of the company. They always said they would come back to me within a day or two but never did. This became a problem in the later stages of my job search, as my email asking for a status update (sent a week after the last interview) was ignored for another week... Without news from Plenty of Fish, I assumed that they weren't interested and took another offer.

    I was very disappointed that after taking the time to come to the office 3 times, I couldn't get an answer to a simple emailed request for a status update.

    I was reflecting on the irony of being ghosted by a dating app when I did get an answer after a week (ie 2 weeks after the date they were supposed to get back to me). They still seemed interested in me, but it was too late at that point unfortunately.

    It's too bad because the engineering team looks solid. I expect that Plenty of Fish is missing on good candidates because of the recruitment process.
