I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Rakuten (Bangalore) in Aug 2021

Interview

Worst experience. No proper communication, no feedback. Seems like internal hiring only. Had 1 round on call then after a month again on zoom and got final call in the end of 2nd month. No proper process and waste of time. Even got wrong zoom link once.

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Rakuten (Bangalore) in Aug 2021

Interview

I interviewed with Rakuten (India). There were 4 rounds. HR general discussion about roles and CTC. Then technical round (1) with a Manager then technical round (2) with another manager. Finally fitment round with leadership followed by HR negotiation. Despite clearing all the rounds and clearly stating the expected CTC I was told that they won't be able to match the salary expectation. I felt it was a waste of time and effort on both the sides. They should clearly have the budget discussion even before scheduling the interview.

I interviewed at Rakuten

Interview

Was unusual as all three rounds were packed into one 1.5 hour interview. Started with getting interviewed by associates then progressed higher up the chain. Product Management team seems composed of mostly old software engineers who transitioned into product, so more technical and less birds-eye view.
