    Senior Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    interviewed at Chegg in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The HR recruiting folks were very helpful and pretty reliable in terms of the timelines, getting back to me etc. The interview process was pretty clear and fairly efficient: one detailed phone screen with HR, one detailed technical phone screen, and then on-site interview. They notify candidates on whether they'd make an offer by the end of the on-site interview. So, overall, a very efficient process.

    Interview Questions
    • What was most unexpected was that most of their data scientists are coming from non-computational and non-statistical backgrounds (geography, political science etc.) but they are very particular about e.g. detailed SQL technical questions during on-site interviews.   Answer Question
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Document / Test-Driven Development (DTDD)

    I've noticed one inalienable truth about software documentation: Documenting last == documenting less. Our fore-fathers understood the importance of documentation. Electrical engineers, they came from a tradition of building programs out of silicon and copper, a medium in which logic errors are expensive to correct. Engineering managers would spend months laboring over huge specification tomes.
