    I worked at SAS Institute as an intern (more than an year)


    I had flexible hours and good pay. My manager gave me a lot of responsibility for projects. Work-life balance was great, and I met a lot of new friends through the intership program. The program was very structured and I received a lot of support, and I would recommend it to anyone.


    I wasn't able to work on some of the projects because I didn't have experience working with the necessary tools, and the various trainings to become adept at the tools were long.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at SAS Institute.

    Interview Details

    The process was quite typical for this type of role. It just was extremely slow. It started with a recruiter contacting me almost after 2 months since my original application on their website. That was followed up by an phone interview with the hiring manager and a second manager. Both had very good analytical backgrounds and the interview was mostly technical. Including SAS coding questions, and predictive modelling questions. I was then told I was going to be invited onsite to interview. But it took another month before that interview was even scheduled.
    The onsite interview is a presentation. You choose some of your work to present. There were at least 5 managers/senior managers and directors int he room, all of whom asked many (and good) question about the presentation I was giving.
    I flew back with the impression the interview went well, but everyone kept their poker faces and I wasn't sure I was going to get an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • There wasn't really anything particularly difficult if you know SAS coding and predictive modelling well.   Answer Question
