    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at ESPN.

    Interview Details

    You have to take a sports assessment test before you're called for an interview. If you get an interview, they just asked me a lot about my resume and work experience and then they went on to ask me current event questions and what kind of graphic I would make.

    Statistics Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at ESPN in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied on campus and interviewed on campus. Interview was pretty straightforward - we discussed sports and I was asked about how much I knew about advanced statistics and ESPN. If you are well-versed in these fields, as I was, you should be fine. Afterwards, I was told to apply online and complete a sports quiz which was pretty simple. After following up with the interviewer, I was told I could expect to hear back regarding the next round within a month. It's been almost three and I've heard nothing.

    Statistics Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at ESPN.

    Interview Details

    The interview questions were reasonable and straight forward, but the Sports Assessment test was more challenging that I had anticipated because of the time limit that the system imposes upon the interviewee. Although I thought I had a reasonable amount of sports knowledge, I learned that there is much more to follow if I want to work as a statistics analyst.
