Interview

Was asked DP and graphs. Not to mention it's the most horrific interview I ever had. Even companies like google, Amazon, and Microsoft ask less difficult questions. I'd not recommend for anyone and the compensation is too low.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rakuten in Apr 2022

Interview

Usually I do not write reviews here, but the interview experience was so horrible that I do not wish others to face the same treatment. Even if I got the job offer I would not accept and I think I'll never apply again to this company. The job interview was conducted by 2 non-japanese guys. The first guy's English was not good to the point I was answering the wrong question. The second guy soon stopped the first one and after that took control of the interview. There were questions that I could not answer, but seems that put the second guy in a bad mood or he was already in a bad mood even before the interview (I'll never know). I don't know if I was failing to answer simple questions due to my inexperience or I was not giving the expected answer. After only 15 minutes the guy was annoyed and clearly wanted to finish the interview. I have stated on the beginning of the interview that I did not have professional experience on the tech that they use, but was studying and doing some simple personal projects and yet I feel they wanted someone with full experience. At the end of the interview I was allowed to ask questions, but they answered vaguely or did not answer at all. This seems like a company that treats engineers as light bulbs (easily replaceable) and from the guy's humour I'll assume the culture is not great. I think most companies forget that the interviews are a two-way interaction and the interviewers also reflect the "face" of the company. My first impression of this company is foverer tainted and would not recommend to anybody.

Interview

one video interview, there are two engineers and give a algorithm like problem but at the start of the interview they said they ain't got much time so keep pushing the interview. for the question is not difficult but need to deal with the ambiguity. However, they don't care about it, just want the interviewee to come up a perfect solution they want.
