Who has the WORST interview process from a recruitment/timing/efficiency standpoint?Dec 4, 2018
I know all recruiters are not the same, but in general companies either suck at recruitment best practices or are awesome. Which company has the WORST process overall? I'm personally voting for the Great Ghosters of Microsoft.
- I bet google is proud to be the worst on this list. If you jump through their hoops you must really want to work there. It also identifies people who will accept low balls.

- I had at least 8 interviews with Microsoft. Passed all the steps and hoops. Was being considered by 2 teams for 3 positions. One hiring manager just didn't show up at a scheduled time. The other HMs all seemed to like me. Then the recruiter disappeared forever. Doesn't even respond to my emails anymore. I'm actually quite upset. I love the Microsoft brand and mission. The ppl I met were top notch! Oh well. Off to their competition
- I tried to apply online to different team and got some random error like my profile is on hold some where. I give up! But damn I wanted to work there. I came in thru conference recruiting...so they spent a lot of money to just blow folks off. Oh well. I have other opportunities. Just wish recruiters gave closure.
- Netflix- no response after recruiter call, bull shit.
No call after some big position guy on blind AMA referral- assuming (s)he referred
Countless online applications
People with my experience are hired there
This was when i was looking for change
- DocuSign 10charonlyGoogle.
We had a good phone chat, sent my resume.
No response for 11 months, and then:
"I see on linked in that you're switching jobs. HM would be happy to chat. Let me set something up."
Eleven months of silence is broken like that?!?
- Microsoft gulta1001MS, month since the interview and still no update just a bunch of excuses. Re, orgs, additional interviews with new management, etc. I get it it’s the holiday season but no response from recruitment on status updates or anything of that sort. Not the first interview experience either, it seems like a black hole every single time. :( I’m extremely discouraged and at this point willing to give up on MS completely and move forward with other competitors.
- Microsoft xjsbaFrom my recent experience Dropbox was by far the worst. It took two weeks after my second phone screen to hear back that I had an onsite. During my onsite I found out I was interviewing for a frontend role that is completely irrelevant to my experience. Finally, it took 2.5 weeks to hear back about onsite, even after me saying I had offer deadlines.
