    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hotstar (Bengaluru).

    Interview

    Worst interview experience I ever had in my 5+ years of experience. It was a skype call, the interviewer showed up 20 mins late, asked a couple of stupid theoretical questions and ended the interview just like that. Hardly took 15 mins when the allotted time was 1 hour.
    Even I take interviews. Atleast spend 10 mins to get to know the person and discuss their past work. They might not know answers to your very specific theory questions but they might have shipped apps far better than what you guys are working on. I feel sorry for the company who depends on such arrogant people to find talent.
    Advice to HR: please do mock interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hotstar (Bengaluru) in March 2017.

    Interview

    My interviewer happened in Apr'17 and I recollect that the process was very thorough. They tested me on my ios understanding, data structures and algorithms - which is unique for a start up. They are not hiring just bodies like many other start ups but hiring people who can seriously add value and take ownership of big projects
