Hilarious interview at Carta

had an awful interview at carta (they have a 49% negative rating on GD) that i thought id share.

recruiter was 20 minuters late ๐Ÿ˜‚ - ok so recruiters are dumb, we all know that.

first thing the interview gal did was say the role isnt open (it clearly was and i was staring right at it) and theyd like more experience - ok so why did i pass the filter then ๐Ÿ˜‚

next thing the recruiter starts shitting on cisco as if she was a Blinder and i was so taken back. sweetheart, youre a *recruiter* at a company that makes a CRUD toy - ok Cisco sucks, i get it.

the final thing was so fucking hilarious.

while holding my anger in i politely asked โ€œso why carta, what gets you up in the morning and excited to work hereโ€

the recruiter said they have unlimited customers and โ€œwere going to take over the world with our productโ€

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ i lost it and started cracking up laughing. im sorry i couldnt take it anymore and i knew there were no next steps.

i said โ€œlook, you guys build SaaS for an extremely fixed supply niche customers. theres no unlimited market and youre foolish to think youre on a rocketship. youre not googleโ€

i know im going to get roasted since im #cisco but i thought id share this since the experience was too hilarious not to share.

got a carta interview coming up? be warned
