    Anonymous Interview Candidate in White Plains, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview over the phone in the beginning and called me for in person. While having phone interview , I have clearly mentioned them I'm recent graduate and don't have hands on skills in SQL. Unfortunately, there were some interviewers, they didn't even look at my profile and started asking me questions from Hard Core SQL. Even though I was applied for junior position. This was bad experience ever with this company.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I conducted exploratory interviews with the "Client Delivery" and "Data Operations" Senior Managers. It was a very professional process, and I received "red-carpet" treatment. Everyone I interviewed with was very forthcoming about the job, the requirements and expected work/life balance. All in all it was a phenomenal interview experience. I would recommend it to anyone. This seems like a great company.

    Interview Details

    Quite different interview, though the position which I had been interviewed did not involve much of technical knowledge, I had been stressed on technical questions. Expect some kind of puzzles or riddle. I thought it was ridiculous and not needed

    Interview Details

    I received a phone interview. The gentlemen seemed depressed and monotone. He didn't express any emotion. The work culture seems arduous . He mentioned "Here at Argus we work a lot. 9-6 is a minimum. 10 hour days are the average." He asked me a total of 2-5 things and the interview did not seem to go well. It lasted 18 minutes with a 30 minute max.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    They had a total of four people interviewing each applicant, one is from HR and the rest are analysts. They gave several case interviews specific to the credit card industry. If you could, make sure you do extensive research on the industry, and think about questions such as what kind of people are most likely to occur credit card fees, how to identify them, etc. They also had a few brain teasers. They are easy as long as you still have a sharp mind after hours of interview. Also, go over your statistical knowledge such as R^2=1-SSE/SSTO.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in White Plains, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services.

    Interview Details

    I applied through college career website. Received call within 2 weeks. The first HR round was 30 min with questions about background, projects, etc.

    Was called for face-to-face interview. Had three interviews of about 30 mins each with team lead and Managers. In first interview I was asked a lot of questions about the project I had done in my college and previous company. I was also given some SQL queries & math puzzles to solve. The Interviewer was not very friendly. The second round was mostly about the technical skills. Lot of questions about SQL were asked. Also some brain teasers were asked. The second interviewer was really friendly and guided me towards the right answer. The third and the last Behavioral interview was the worst! It was with the Manager who was very arrogant and disinterested in taking the interview! He asked questions about SQL first. When I answered, he tried to confuse a simple concept of unique key. When I explained him that, he used his own terms and explained me the same thing. Questions about no. crunching and estimation were asked. He interrupted every time I spoke and showed a very bad attitude! Its very rare that you come across such unhappy and arrogant interviewer.

    Overall I could answer everything, but was sure from last interview that I would not receive the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Following questions were asked:
      Tell me about a time when you worked on multiple projects
