I applied online. I interviewed at Square (Toronto, ON (Canada)).
The first step was a phone screen, which was very standard.
The second step was a 45 minute leadership round and an hour technical round. I thoroughly enjoyed the leadership round, got to know more how Square operates and a lot on the culture.
The technical round is where everything fell apart. I've been technical for years and while I may not have been coding 100% of the time anymore, I can still write code. The interviewer gave a question that wasn't very detailed and through asking questions it turned out I didn't have the right approach. After restarting, added another scenario which made me restart yet again. I didn't have the chance to complete the final solution unfortunately. The interviewer after a few minutes simply gave up on the interview, was distracted, had phone calls, the door rang, and had to ask some questions a few times before I got an answer.
For a manager role, I was surprised at how much they still focused on these development challenges. Quite possibly one of the few companies that I've experienced that actually does it. They would be better off calling this a Team or Tech Lead role.
I did really appreciate the transparency of the feedback, which is unlike I have ever received before though, for that made up for the interview experience.
