Just gave an interview for indeed through karat, we had audio and video issues. Finished first problem and 80% of second . Was unable to run he code it had a couple of compilation issues but worked.

Interviewer said his feedback was I took time to understand question. , obviously due to audio issues

He said he is going to make a note .

I have a redo option and they will send both feedbacks to indeed.

Just wondering if I should do a redo or simply wait for the result ?

Any suggestions please let me know , I have less than 24 hours to make a choice

    Karat is worst platform and their engineers . I don’t know why you want to work for company which they outsource phone interviews and their interview process .Stay away from Karat . And outsourcing is not free and somebody need to monitor results so resources will be required at indeed side so why don’t they do interviews. Ask recruiter

      We do track karat results but it’s a big difference between someone tracking this and running this project vs hiring more sr engineers, have them be here a while, train them up with shadowing and reverse shadow, then ready to take phone screens. We’re just behind on getting people calibrated because we were more focused on hiring. At least in my site we’re training up a lot more people so we can more in house. But we have both people running with karat and site leads all talking about this all the time and monitoring results.

      Also questionable / borderline results from karat we have engineering leaders review.

      I am just saying I will not work for company where they outsource basic fundamental interview where candidate want to learn more about company and culture during phone call and one hour is not free. If you get onsite then candidate can access team fit and all like , I want to work for this company or not based on interviewer mood and response or personality and you can’t get feeling in phone round . If you pass phone round then you waste 1 day for onsite using PTO or personal time . I don’t think it’s not right that’s why FAANG does not outsource .

      You guys will outsource onsite in future too and your leaders will review results . Lol

      I mean they usually have an initial phone call with the recruiter at the company that will give you that information about culture and should be able to answer those questions.

      I actually don’t like outsourcing either but I think declaring you wouldn’t work for a company that does it I think is a bit rash. We’ve been growing a lot over the last year which I for sure saw so many people get really good opportunities they could not get at a faang. Now we’re slowing down a bit on growth to take care of the other things. And we don’t use much engineering contractors, 90% or something are all in house with full benefits etc and train them up to interview (and we don’t want to overload our teams ). Faang companies don’t do this. Just think you should take more into consideration than “we outsource so we’re bad”.

      I think Seattle eng started using Karat for screening a while ago

      That's the first technical screen that we do used a 3rd party but the guy from Capital One kept saying we outsource our on-site too

    Indeed usually requires runnable code from karat interviews for at least 2 questions. But, be it Karat or regular online interviews, if you have audio/video issues, unfortunately I won't be able to judge you better.

    I would take it again if you had audio issues. Isn't that the entire point of that option?

    I had a good experience with Karat personally.

    I've heard mostly positive things from candidates in my experience using Karat. You get a free Redo and you get a live person to clarify questions. It's also frees up engineering time so they're not stuck doing technical phones screens all day.

      No, we don't outsource our onsite. It's possible someone interviewed remotely with other Indeed engineers, though. That can occur at newer offices.

    Karat and TripleByte are a No No for me either. An interview is a two-way street. I won't know shit about the company where I should have the opportunity to choose whether I want to work or not. Take it Again, but no Karat.
