They now use hackerrank to test, 4 tasks in 75 minutes! The tasks are not difficult at all, but time consuming.
I doubt there's anyone who can even just type in the code in that short time-frame, not to mention time to understand and analyze a task.
What kind of idiot came up with such testing?

    Entretien

    Interview started with phone interview which I passed and was invited for an onsite interview in Amsterdam.

    They only took care of the flight ticket and hotel with breakfast (other meals they said they can't cover). I was told to keep the receipts (visa application, transportation, etc.), but they actually never paid me back anything which was a huge negative point for me as I spent over $200 on the visa app and transportation which I am never getting back!!

    The interview itself had 4 parts:

    1- HR: was fine. Nothing special about it, just giving info about the city and the company and knowing more about me.

    2- Coding interview: it was about a game that I never heard about before and they didn't give me all the rules at once. They kept remembering about some new rule whenever I start coding and when I got the final feedback, I was told that I didn't do ok because I didn't know the rules!!

    3- Design interview: I believe it went very good, but I never got any feedback about this one

    4- Management interview: mainly about "what things I have faced during my career" and I was told that there was a big red flag here because I didn't answer accurately and it took time to reach the answer the interviewer was looking for. This also didn't make any sense because the questions were not clear and of course it took some conversation time to reach the actual point her was looking for.

    The interview was one of the easiest I have ever faced (comparing to others I got in Microsoft, Facebook, Google, Amazon, Linkedin, Crytek and more) but for some reason I don't even know what went wrong cause the feedback I got was totally weird!

    Overall, the interview process was a total waste of time but I actually enjoyed the city very well

    Payment wise, the salaries there are not that great, they would have been only about 75% of what I am making now in Amazon Shanghai, which put it effectively at about 50% of what I am making now (Taking cost of living into consideration)

    J'ai postulé via une agence de recrutement. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Booking.com (Amsterdam (Pays-Bas)) en août 2020.

    Entretien

    At first, I was contacted by a company who is responsible for recruiting some people for Booking, after the first screening, I was passed for the next conversation with HR, it was something very smooth and good to take, they needed to know about my plans, my expectations about Amsterdam and Booking. After it, I passed for the technical interview with a Senio software Engineer and a Leader Developer, they were very helpful by sadly I didn't pass through the technical test, the both testes were Java Puzzles, they both can be solved using data structures, the first I was super confident, I did implemented DFS to solve it, and the next one is supposed to be Max Heap, but I didn't get it.

    Entretien

    Lengthy and solid.
    But there were several drawbacks:
    - the engineers doing the technical interviews should be handpicked to be ones with solid communication and social skills, as some of them were quite awkward and grumpy and do not put candidates at ease.
    - you go through 3 rounds of coding exercises and if you perform perfectly in two out of three, all of the results are just discarded. (apparently that means you don't know how to code)
    - the scheduling was all over the place, and there was a lack of communication (interviews rescheduled last minute and at odd times)

    Entretien

    I interviewed in November 2017.

    I applied through LinkedIn for their office in Amsterdam and a few days later, before I got any e-mail reply, phone call or anything like that to explain me more about the company or about the interview process, I received an automated e-mail asking me to do a HackerRank test. I found that behaviour kinda insulting, but since this job position seemed to align exactly with what I was looking for then I decided to give it a try.

    But to my surprise, the HackerRank test that they sent me wasn't working. I couldn't login with the credentials that they provided. I wrote to the internal recruiter saying that the test wasn't working and she replied saying that I should contact HackerRank support directly... I thought, "ok, I will try that..." - I did these HackerRank tests many times before with other companies and I never had any problem, so regardless of what was happening now, it shouldn't be difficult for them to fix, right?

    Well, I was wrong. I wrote to HackerRank support and they told me that the credentials given to me were wrong and I was supposed to ask Booking to send me new credentials. I wrote Booking one more time and Booking once again said that everything was right and I was supposed to contact HackerRank support once more until they fixed my problem.

    To make the story short, I contact the HackerRank support multiple times but they never could help me, at the same time that they were pushing me to seek help from Booking. And Booking also didn't try to help me at all, while they pushed me to seek support from HackerRank. In the end, I realized that I would never want to work for a company like this.

    What type of recruiter sends you a test to the candidate before even talking to you and explaining how the company/interview process there? The way they ignored my problems says a lot; if they are unfazed about my problems in the very beginning of this process, I wonder how they treat the employees if they have a problem there.

    - One telephonic round with HR.
    - One telephonic round with 2 easy leetcode.

    Three on-site interviews
    - One technical interview with 1 leetcode medium problem.
    - One system design interview
    - One Interview with a product manager

    Overall, very easy technical interviews if you have prepared well. However you may get rejected in the product manager round. So if you want this job, prepare on the non-technical side of things as well.

    - First telephone call
    - Then online coding
    - Then face to face interview

    I was very disappointed to see many low-level professionals holding the interview.
    The level was below middle even. The questions were very stupid and the overall conclusion is don't go there. If you need to relocate that accept the offer and then find a good job in Amsterdam in high tech.

      And they love to write code in a paper during the interviews.

      My impression is that the interviewer people were very unprofessional, and the questions seemed to be very illogical and out of scope.   Répondre à cette question
