This is from interviewee’s prospective.

- Reject us fast and early
What’s good? The recruiter using a service for me to choose a time from many options. It avoids a lot of back and forth, especially if you’re hiring globally (timezones).
What’s bad? Asking me to send a couple of times available.
After phone screening, we may orally agreed for next interview. A good recruiter will send you a follow-up email / calendar invite.
Never ask as to give a exact number for expected compensations.
What’s good? They share the interview questions for you beforehand and let you choose the best technology you’re familar to solve the problem.
What’s bad? Vague feedback like: This piece of code is not senior enough.
What’s good? If they received, read, and share concret feedbacks.
A good company would cover all expenses upfront. Book you a flight that let you arrive in a reaonsable time. Nicer companies will give you an extra day to adjust, and let you stay for the weekend.
Each passing day here is a mental stress for us (at least for me).
