    Interview

    The interview process was very unprofessional.
    The phone interview went well and I was invited in for an in person interview.

    I was interviewed by the phone interviewer and one more individual.
    When I arrived for the in person interview, they were 15 minutes late and did not apologize.

    They asked me two questions (which I was already asked during the phone interview) which I felt was a waste of my time and the third question asked me about what I like to do in my spare time.

    My questions to them (about the company and the role itself) lasted longer than their interview for me.

    They told me they would let me know if I would be proceeding to the next round. I did not hear back from them. Nor did I care, as I knew this was not a place I wanted to work.

    The office was dark, completely quiet (I felt like I had to whisper when I came in), and full of cubicles...
