    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Mattersight.

    Interview Details

    Met recruiters at career fair. On campus interview, two weeks later was invited for an in person interview. The on campus interview was about 45 minutes and the interview in Chicago took about 2.5 hours. Prior to the on site interview, I took a personality test. When arriving at Mattersight after checking in, a recruiter will greet you and you'll take the Wonderlic test. I then met with four different people. One focused on my resume, another on behavioral questions, another on different scenarios, and the last on more logic/critical thinking problems.

    Business Team Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Mattersight.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by friendly recruiter. Phone screen then phone interview with team member. Later, a day in the office to meet a handful of others on the business team. Very professional work environment - not your flip flops and cut offs type tech company. People seemed intelligent and motivated. Very concerned about how I would connect, interact and collaborate with other members of the team, not just experience. I see this as a good thing, as a result of focus on getting right people during interview process, office politics seem far less here than other past employers.

    Interview Questions
    • not any one question, but I could tell the same topics were being explored by different people in different ways. My sense is this is not a process where you can BS the person you are talking to without it coming back to bite you later.   Answer Question

    Behavioral Analytics Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Mattersight in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied after seeing a listing on my university's career website. Within a week was contacted by a recruiter to schedule a basic phone interview going over my resume and the company. A few days later, I was contacted about scheduling another phone interview with a current analyst, which was behavioral and included logic/brain teaser questions. After this interview, I was contacted about doing an on-site interview in Chicago. As stated, and they do inform you of this clearly, travel expense are not reimbursed.

    The office is very modern, chic, and in a fantastic location. Everyone I met during my interviews, from the lead recruiter to principals and analysts, were very nice and easy to connect with. Prior to the interviews I had to complete a personality test at home, and the on-site process began with a 12 minute wonderlic test (move fast) and 4 30-45 minute 1:1 interviews. The interviews were all behavioral, some included logic/brainteasers, and there was plenty of time for questions. I received positive feedback following my visit and a formal offer roughly a week and a half later.

    Main advice: Practice logic and brainteasers with a book or on-line to get your brain in shape. Some don't have an answer (more about thought process), and some do. Just make sure you can walk through it like a case interview and show your reasoning. Other than that, I felt like cultural fit is huge, so be yourself, be confident, and personable, don't be afraid to laugh a little, and of course, be professional.

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Mattersight in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a one on one campus interview with a recruiter form Mattersight after I met her at a career fair. After about a week I was asked to come out to Chicago for a final round interview. I completed a personality test online beforehand, the recruiters were able to answer any questions I had via email. The day of the interview on location I met with four different Mattersight employees of different departments. Each of the interviewers had incredibly different personalities. Some were friendly and easy to connect with while others made me seem like a bit of an inconvenience as they has odd other work to do. After being there for about 3 hours I was told they would be able to give me an answer in about a week
