    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Experian (Costa Mesa, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the inside sales position online on May 5th. Literally got a phone call the next day from the recruiter. She asked me about my background, and we went through my resume. She felt like I was a good candidate for the position and set up a phone interview with the Senior Inside Sales Manager the next day. I talked to the manager on the phone, and learned more about the position, got a chance to ask questions, and show I did research on the company. He asked me in particular about my sales experience. He felt I would be a good fit and told me he would like for me to have a face-to-face interview with his colleague (I live in California, but the position is in Schaumburg, Illinois) The face-to-face was scheduled a week later. I got a tour of the Costa Mesa Campus from the recruiter, we sat down and talked about my background again. I talked to her for about half an hour. Later, I had a chance to meet with the Sales Director, and talk to him for about 15-20 minutes, and finally had a video conference with the Senior Inside sales manager. The whole process was really smooth. Didn't ask any difficult questions. Just wanted to get a feel of you as a person. They made an offer the same day. I got a call from the recruiter a few hours later and was extended an offer.

My interview went really well, because the guy was very excited by the responses I gave him. Unfortunately I didnt get the job because another person had experience in the call center environment and I didn't.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Experian.

    Interview

    The phone interview was carried out by one of their principle scientists, and lasted for about an hour. The interviewer was very friendly. After brief introductions, there are a list of questions asked, including coding, probability, linear algebra, numerical analysis. The interview was mainly focused on skills and knowledge, not so much about behavioral. Not your regular phone interview.

    No feedback. When they acquire companies, they don't conduct interviews as they do for new hires. Basically, they ask general questions about your role to then match against existing Experian job descriptions.
