Argo AI

Palo Alto Networks fas12345
Oct 16 22 Comments

Last week I interviewed at Argo AI. I thought it went perfect. I was surptised snd really bummed when the feedback was “we have decided not to pursue things further”. What really gets me is I nailed the interview! Just venting here....

I suppose there is someone with the same gripes who just interviewed at my company too.

But still.... so dissapointed!!!

    Probably because you didn’t share TC.

    OP here. Well Palo Alto would have been a lousy commute anyway.

      This has to be the most unfortunate juxtaposition of company name and post content on Blind.

  • Interviews are not only about technical or cultural fit. If you hurt (even unintentionally) other people’s interests they will reject you. I have seen this happen tons of times where candidates get rejected because they are better than current interviewers and they feel threatened, they want more people from their culture, you take too much money out of their pool, etc. The opposite is true as well... if you are useful for someone’s interests, they will fight for you

    Haha ArgoAI has some of the worst recruiters. Went through an interview for embedded software with them. Interview went perfectly and I know it did. Have given enough interviews to know how to gauge my performance well. Recruiter doesn’t get back to me for 10 days and I didn’t bother to either cause I wasn’t interested in going there anyway.

    After 10 days he sends me a rude email saying “We've had stronger candidates coming through and will be passing at this time.” Like who the fuck says that. You’d rather just say we will not be moving forward or something like that.

    Just fyi before you judge me I got offers from 3 of the FANG companies and other top tier startups, going to one of F/G.

    Nope, no one who interviewed at your company has the same gripes.

    Sorry man 😟. It’s gotten extremely competitive to get in here since the VW deal, we’ve got an unprecedented amount of applications for each role.

    Probably because it’s a front for the CIA. Did they tell you “Argo fuck yourself”?

    If I had $100 for every failed candidate who thought they nailed their interview... I can retire today (I’d myself have to pay a few hundred as well 😜)
