I managed to pass a phone screen and was told that they would "share their notes with the team and be in touch." I thought I didn't do very well, so I just forgot about it.
Then two days later, I was invited to do a whiteboard interview. I studied my pants off for a full week, making sure I understood the required technologies.
At the whiteboard interview, I managed to solve 2 out of 3 algorithm challenges. Even refactored one unexpectedly.
I had some fun conversations with the CTO and the development team. I was even given an impromptu tour of the office at the end.
I was told that they "still need to interview other candidates and will follow up with next steps in about a week."
I went home, emailed a nice thank you email for the interview and received a response the next day with essentially the same thing... "... hope to be in touch soon."
The whiteboard interview was last Tuesday, and I'm not sure if I should try following up or wait a few extra days?
What was your experience like with the hiring process? I'm sure it varies tremendously.
I've read some awesome success stories and it seems that some of our campers get an offer pretty quickly. While I have also read one camper's story that seem to take longer than usual but he still ended up getting an offer.
I'm interested in hearing your stories!
