Compass interview result

Feb 11 16 Comments

Interviewed with 3 weeks back, they still didn't get back on the result. I sent a reminder to the recruiter and didn't get any reply.

I know I probably didn't make it, but what kind of company does this? Is it so Difficult to trigger an automatic email that the candidate didn't make it?

Also the interviews actually went well, so no idea what they were looking.

    I had a BS technical phone screen with an arrogant little prick. I looked him up on LinkedIn and he had 2 yoe. He seriously talked for 10 minutes to set up the problem with all the requirements, not interactively — he just kept talking. Then he left me alone to code it in 20 minutes, making it clear he’s not paying attention. Then he jumps in to tell me that we’re out of time. What a little jerk. I never heard back. My worst TPS ever. If you’re reading this BS, you know who you are!

      Alright. I see a pattern. I have seen similar experiences with other people. I heard they are growing fast, but that's zero excuse to treat people like this. My onsite, most of the time people were nice, but the process itself was very random. No White boards, pen and paper in the interview rooms. How am I going to do any calculation? And they are pitching the company as next level multi billion dollar company, I don't know how they can grow if they don't realize the importance of recruiting.

      I’m just relaying my phone screen experience, that’s all I had. I will add that the 3P recruiter warned me before the TPS that there’s one interviewer who can seem (I forget her word, disintersted?). When I told her who I was scheduled for, she said it wasn’t that person. ! So I didn’t even have the person she was kindly warning me was the a-hole! It was one of those rare ones I was thrilled to be rejected by.

    I'm a senior engineer & had the online coding interview with Compass with this guy(yoe:18) who hung up on me unprofessionally. And the coding problem he gave me is a stupid abstract math problem which has no practical usage. Interview panel should lay some guidelines on what kinda coding problems make sense to ask. I feel Compass has to revamp their interview practices & monitor their interviewers' soft skills towards candidates

      I know which question you are talking about, it involves arithmetic operations right?

      I got that onsite. Not sure if the same engineer asked it, but that dude was super nice though. It's just that the question is too confusing. It's more difficult to understand than solve it

    Meh. There are plenty of other options.

    My comments above were with the NYC office last autumn. Yesterday a recruiter in NY told me that Compass is now setting up a dev shop in Seattle, and looking for a ton of people. I have no idea if this is true, just passing it on.

      New shop in Seattle is solid.

    My recruiter got back to me the next day after the onsite interview. Compass may only hires senior engineers right now since a lot of new engineers just came on board.

    Had a pretty negative pm interview with compass. The phone screen was pretty poor at assessing a PMs actual knowledge and experience. Got accepted into the next round but the recruiter never replied...

    Compass does not have consistent interviews because there's no feedback mechanism, it seems, to keep interviewers accountable. That's what leads to negative interview stories on blind.

    I recently did the whole process and was actually very pleased, much more so than with FAANG. Interviews themselves were interesting and not just leetcodes, responses were polite and snappy, got notified about onsite results within just a couple of days of doing it. As someone here said I did interview for senior so that may be the case... Am currently still evaluating the offer so not much else I can say
