      Overall Experience:

      Instructors:
      Job Assistance:

      I applied for the program several months ago and was interviewed by one of Insight’s interviewers, ‘Matt.’ About 10 minutes into the call, Matt jumped into an immediate negative assessment of my interview performance after asking when I last coded professionally. 

      I then asked a series of questions about the program, which he perfunctorily answered  and directed me to read Insight’s FAQ. 

      Matt then asked if I was recording the conversation, with no reasons offered for his line of questioning. (I was not recording the conversation and informed him that I was not.). He then proceeded to speak on an off tangent and again stated that if I were recording the conversation, it was not allowed. (I had already stated I was not recording the conversation, and was unsure why he kept pursuing this line of questioning).

      I’m not certain what impression Insight wishes to leave with prospective candidates, but it was not a good one for me.  I will not be pursuing this poorly run program as a result, and will not be recommending it to any of my friends or colleagues.
