Netflix hiring manager rejected me for asking about WLB
A few months ago I had an initial conversation with a hiring manager which seemed to go pretty well. Towards the end she told me to ask her any questions I might have.
I asked her how is the WLB in her team. She didn’t like that question at all.
Her response was “I honestly don’t know how to answer that question. What do you mean by WLB ? We at Netflix look for people who are really motivated and always willing to push themselves.”
The next day I got a rejection mail from the recruiter saying I am not a culture fit.
Not trolling, Netflix seems brutal.
