I worked at Cricket Wireless as a contractor (More than a year)
Great managers and fun environment
Monthly releases, not enough time to test

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cricket Wireless (Atlanta, GA (US)) in February 2019.
Recruiters reached out, and we scheduled an interview.
The interview was writing code in front of the dev lead.
The company threw a number of red flags:
1. It's a "feature factory", meaning it just pumps out new features without performing the maintenance needed to keep their software in good shape.
2. It didn't seem to have enough desks, and employees had to work on their laptops on random couches in the office.
3. The coding interview had very little to do with the job description.
4. The company cancelled a follow-up interview we'd scheduled, after I'd already taken time off for said interview, because the lead wanted to go home early. The only day I was available for reschedule, they declined because a different lead likes to work from home that day. If that's how little this company cares about interviews, then I can't imagine how much they'd care about me if I were to work there.
5. The recruiters used inappropriate pressure tactics.
