    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cox Communications.

    Interview Details

    HR was very nice. But did not interviewed with HR, rather, directly to the manager and one person who works in the team. No easy behavior questions, and you need to quickly come up with solutions about data analysis. Did not talk about anything from resume.

    Interview Questions
    • They said was STAR question in the email, but actually basically no behavior questions.
      Asked how to deal with data in certain situtations.
