  1. Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Airbnb (United States)


    I interviewed for a SWE position. I was informed that the first round was going to involve LC medium question, and I prepared accordingly. Recruiter was polite and appeared friendly. Interview day though, it was upside down. Easily, one of the worst interview process of the many interviews I have taken oven the years. The interviewer seemed to have been voluntold to interview me. Felt like this individual was more a proctor for the exam than a human. As. soon as we started the video con, the interviewer says" ready for the question" without turning on their camera. I mean, at least have the decency to introduce yourself, tell me what you do for the company, and talk a little bit about the role or the culture. Nopes---instead, a robot proctoring a LC question. I was just not expecting that. The question they asked was easy but a bunch of "on the fly" questions made me think that this appears to be a kid that came right out of college due to the nature of that "on the fly" question. I am not writing this review because I did not get the offer and therefore want to vent. I am writing this so that someone on their HR team starts to notice a pattern that is evolving in their interviewing procedure. I'd also agree with what one of the other review on here mentioned--they appear to be fixated on a "certain type" of engineer. I got that vibe as well. So here is the tip for new interviewees---as much hype as this company has, they spent zilch training their engineers on interviewing skills. Sure, they are public and appear to be better positioned than other start-ups that are currently struggling, I would think twice before joining this place. Make sure you understand who your co-workers are going to be, before you decide to join. Don't forget to look up a few individuals on LinkedIn to gauge the diversity of engineers there.

    Cannot comment because of an NDA.
