Interview

A recruiter contacted me and described the job and got some information from me. Next the hiring manager reached out. There were supposed to be three steps: A quick coding challenge, a half hour phone screening, and a longer several hour interview that included both an interview and coding portion. I was giving a link to a timed 1 hour coding challenge. I made a genuine mistake here by jumping in with a language I hadn't used recently instead of one I was more familiar with. I ran into some issues on the first problem and ran out of time. A few days later I received an email saying they were not going to continue with me. I'm a bit torn on this because on the one had I should have chosen a language I had more recent experience with and I can understand if they need a way to weed people out if they have a great number of applicants. At the same time I don't think a one hour challenge under pressure is a good indication of someone's programming skills.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PayPal (Bangalore)

Interview

Total 4 rounds were there: 1. Online Coding round on hackerearth. 2. DS/Algo round. 3. Java/SpringBoot/DBMS round. 4. Hiring Manager Round. After taking 3rd round HR was ghosted and didn't reply to mail or call. After one week receive a call from HR for scheduling last round(HM round). Again after conducting HM round there was no response from HR ,tried to reach HR through mail or call or LinkedIn but no response. After 2 weeks got a reply from HR over LinkedIn that HM response is pending and i will get my feedback tomorrow. But Again for a week there was no response , tried to call another HR she responded that HM response is not positive and when I tried to know the reason so that i can work on it HR replied that she doesn't have access to the feedback. I don't mine being rejected but what i don't like is the process and lack of HR coordination, atleast i should be informed about the feedback.
