    Devops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Guidewire in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewing for a position of DevOps Engineer and applied online. Process involved, one recruiter screen and 8 technical rounds. It took more than two months to come on a conclusion for not proceeding further with hiring candidate and that is after taking 8 rounds of video conferencing interviews. Whole interview process was way too slow, I had to follow-up multiple times to get an update on previous round which was frustrating.

    Advice to hiring recruiter/manager: DO NOT WASTE TIME OF CANDIDATES! rather do some research on requirement and candidate.
