    Bioinformatics Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Total waste of my valuable time. They send me a take home assignment which I completed and send them 2 days later. Almost a month now and no word of next process or if I didn’t get the job. Very disappointed. Please stop wasting time of software engineers if you don’t have intentions of hiring. Stop the culture of ghosting the candidates. It reflects bad on the company reputation.
