I had an amazon interview a few years ago where the interviewer either intentionally or unintentionally said something incorrect about a technical matter and I wasn't sure if it was a slip of the tongue or a gotcha kinda thing, I kinda just smiled and nodded and moved on to the next thing

I didn't address it and I'm pretty sure that's why I didn't get the offer

Interviewing is garbage

Amazon stole my intern and is paying that kid $33/hr.

what does me in about my job is that it feels like a sinking ship and my job isnt just to be a pharmacist but also a business saving magician. and also a sales man. and i can never leave because the place cant be open without a pharmacist and im the only one. and so i spend all my week in a small building with the same staff who are nice but also just middle aged women. and the customers are ok but some are super poor and im always taking on the load of poor depressed and unwell people and have to smile thru it.

i get between $1150-1300 in the hand each week. im certainly not poor. but I have a bunch of debt to take care of and am general terrible with money. self-hatred aint cheap

No it does not.


I think what you're getting at is that there is a fear common amongst US employers that interviewees may sue on some allegation they've been discriminated against and that employers believe a consistent hiring process is a decent affirmative defense to this allegation. AFAIK there is certainly no federal law requiring this and while that fear may or may not be pervasive, tbh I have it a little bit whenever someone mentions some ADA protected thing for no reason in an interview, these lawsuits are actually extremely rare and this isn't a thing worth putting in to practice because usually the lawsuits settle ahead of discovery anyway.

EDIT: To be clear I am saying the number of lawsuits per year based on interview discrimination is in the "a couple dozen" order of magnitude, while the number of interviews done in a year is in the dozens of millions order of magnitude. And also that if you DO get one of these lawsuits, it will likely settle before you have a chance to present your awesome consistent hiring process.

mostly agree with above poster. what stage/round is the startup? assuming theyre >200 employees if theyre hiring directors.

i only have ~11FTE employees but heres what Id ask if I was joining one:
-How much runway
-whats the exit strategy? being post series A means youre trying to go public. imo a company hoping to get bought is a big red flag for risk unless the offer is already in the works

closest thing to an adversial interview I think is appropriate is we have two principals get as deep into tech as the candidate knows. the goal is to understand the depth but more importantly see how they react when they dont know something. do they become argumentative? cooperative? refuse to acknowledge that they dont know? this is super useful for everyone from an associate (are they willing to learn) to a manager (must maintain face for the position) and for the later have sunk some prospects.

This was how a FAANG company interviewed me about a new grad mechanical engineering role in 2013. Not sure if they still do but tbh it was a pretty fun, though exhausting, interview. Especially because I was doing research in the area they asked me about at the time and had read ~3 textbooks and 50+ papers about the subject within the last year so we got to chat for several hours about a thing I enjoyed studying.

That said I dont adopt that style because if I got that same interview now about what I do I would fail miserably even though I am a pretty productive dilettante of a computer toucher.

Not really an interviewing question per se but I'm spending a lot of time reflecting on my career and have sort of a general question. How bad is it to actually work for a startup? What are the pros and cons?

My perception is that everything is always on fire because you have to make good on the VC and position yourself to be acquired, so the company is always burning you out, in the hopes of a big payola. Is that accurate? Has anyone had experience to the contrary?

My current job is for a small company with a stable revenue stream, and I feel like we're building legitimately cool stuff, but from a strategic level it feels like we're kinda rudderless. Like there isn't really a coherent vision or direction at a leadership level, especially not to expand our customer base. Which would be fine but we keep getting these insane projects where I crunch for like 2-3 months at a time because of whatever constraints the management has dreamed up. And like, I could handle that if I felt like I was working towards some big payday, new customer, whatever. But it's been almost 7 years, and though I've gotten healthy raises, I just don't feel like there's been... much of anything happening on the business side. Just the same customers from a decade ago renewing. And I love love love my team but most of the time I find the company owners to be a huge pain in the rear end, for a variety of reasons, and there's not really any ways to insulate myself from their crazy whims. It honestly kinda feels like the employees are doing more to implement a stable direction than the leadership.

I'm looking at other opportunities and trying to figure out what I really want. Either stability and consistency, even if it's not exciting, or the potential for a big fuckin payday if I'm gonna be doing this crazy hair-on-fire crunch poo poo. But like how bad can it actually get if you really go after those VC exit strategy bux?

I started a startup that is no in CA, 10 employees, went through YC, and is pre Series A so take those factors into account. I'm gonna present from an employees point of view.

Pros:
- If its small what you do actually matters
- Extremely small chance but maybe it has a favorable exit. A friend of mine worked for a startup for 2 years and made them write his number of shares in an email after they terminated him a couple years ago. They recently IPO'd. He sold his stock and working is basically optional if he manages his money well.
- Working at a big company is soul sucking

Cons:
- There's literally every kind of risk. My cofounder and I never had direct reports before starting this company. It seems like youre in the "high managem,ent risk" company.
- Working at a small company can be soul sucking.
- Often the pay is below average but if they just raised a round and you can negotiate worth a poo poo maybe not.

EDIT: I am v tired and this post wasnt that helpful. If I can answer any "managing or interviewing at a seed stage startup" questions though, please ask.

I think you might overestimate what qualifies as "not poo poo" statistically by comparison to raw # of applicants. If "not poo poo" means easy to read + an eng/CS degree from an ABET accredited school + experience + a GitHub w/commented code yea 40% might be right.

I did the math on an entry level python req for the BFC Resume thread as there was some discussion about entry level programming jobs and what degree they held.

CarForumPoster posted:

I was very curious what the breakdown was since the advice I am leaning toward with strawberrymoose with coding is that he'd better have some good projects to show off because he's gonna have a tough go at coding jobs.

~40% were Indian developers with hilariously bullshit resumes that didnt provide a GitHub despite me saying it was the one hard qualification requirement in bold and including it as a required question to apply.

Of the remaining ~60% I went through and wrote their degrees. I may have missed a couple. I separated degrees into the tier I view them in for entry-level developers. Bold are the ones I interviewed or I at least wrote some favorable notes on. Ugrad means they're currently in undergrad, otherwise they'd graduated. The places in parenthesis are where their undergrad was from.



TLDR: I had 91 applicants. 43 got more than 15 seconds of me looking at their application. I phone interviewed or strongly considered 18 applicants. Hired 1 applicant.

out of curiosity, was there a non-obvious reason for this or were you just that set on only hiring people who give away their labor in their free time

This reply only applies to SW Engineer w/less than 5 yrs full-time experience.

Two years ago I started out assuming I wasn't a good judge of resumes, so I'd phone interview a TON of people and if they were even kinda okay, I'd let them tell me a time where they have 48 hours to complete a practical coding test. We mostly build and deploy web apps in Python. I've given a decent number of people the same coding test. The test doesn't prescribe how to do it but gives clear shalls that essentially require a web app to hit a no-authentication-required REST API and returns the data in a sortable table. If you've deployed 2 or 3 Flask/Django apps to Heroku or AWS before, this project can be done in 2 hours.

Sadly, I do not find a strong correlation between good practical test outcome and resume quality, so I continue to phone interview people with meh resumes. Hence the large interview list I posted above.

I want to believe I am a good phone interviewer but of the people who do decent on the resume AND decent on the phone interview, the project quality still isn't great.

When I look at their GitHub and I look at the code they submitted to me, that is a better predictor than phone interviews of the quality of practical project I will get. Thus, to save both of us time, I require and review GitHubs before a phone interview.

100% I will cop to missing good early-career candidates with the GitHub requirement. It's my own fault I can't filter them from resume alone, but I can't. I only hire maybe 1-2 computer touchers per year and have no other help hiring so how I optimize my time might not apply to other companies. Hopefully others are better about knowing you're awesome purely from your resume and phone interview.

If a company is pushing you to accept while you're waiting for other interviews then do so and bail if a later place has a better offer. Unless you're in a very niche area the bridges you potentially burn by doing this are inconsequential and you should do what's best for you.

This often does burn the bridge, especially at a smaller company, so avoid being a dick when possible. If you wonder why companies dont send rejection emails to potential candidates, or go radio silent for 3+ weeks and then contact you later. Someone agreed to start and then bailed.

it's worth noting that negotiating at the FAANGS is predicated on you have a competing FAANG (or FAANG-lite) offer -- this is anecdotal to me and the people I know but they won't even entertain negotiations unless you have a competing offer because they know that they're likely already coming in significantly above your existing salary

squeezing another 30k (or more) at that level is absolutely do-able but it's something you need to plan out by interviewing a bunch, it's not something you'll get by being difficult on the phone for 30 minutes

This was not true for me at a FAANG in 2013 where, right of of a mediocre school with a 3.0 GPA, I got $+5K SOB and $5k/yr in RSUs by basically asking for it.

do make sure that's not gonna get you in any kind of non-compete hot water, but it's an easy way to suddenly become a professional computer-toucher. if won't help you with the "three years" part of "three years of experience required," and it won't help you pass an interview, but it might help you softshoe around a dumbass HR filter.

This is very good advice. If you wanna seem like you actually totally did consulting for real though form an LLC. Its also cheap and easy. This is nice to have too because if you get fired you can always truthfully say you worked for DaShitpostBoss, LLC

When interviewers look at resumes to try to find "aptitude" and "drive" the things I said are things that some hiring managers look for. That promotion history, life circumstances or resumes in general result in unfair distribution of interviews or the best candidate not getting the job is irrelevant to helping goons get computer toucher jobs.

"drive is hard to communicate in a resume" was the original statement. you disagreed with it

The audience the resume is communicating to is the interviewer. If interviewers see a list of easily verified accomplishments and perceive the candidate as potentially driven it has been communicated. It may be that interviewers looking for drive this way is unfair, biased, and/or bad for society. Its not hard to communicate to those unfair biases tho.
