    Reasons for Declining

    I was quite impressed about the company while I was interviewing with the associates in the senior management from AbsolutData. However when I was offered a position by the HR department, things weren't straight forward. First of all it was so difficult to communicate with them due to the time difference between India and the US. And also, down the line I felt the HR team was not professional enough to communicate well during the salary negotiation phase.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Absolutdata (Idaho Falls, ID) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Hiring began with an email from a Human Resources Associate in India. The hours of contact were understandably VERY odd given the time difference. I was screened through 3 sepearate phone calls and then interviewed with an executive via Skype. The whole process beginning to end took approximately one week. The HR associate seemed to advocate for me, and the second interviewer asked puzzle questions, while the executive seemed to generally just scoffed and exuded a pompous undertone in his speech. At the end of the process I was told I would be contacted. No contact was made, I reached out to the HRA three separate times and was told the manager was "thinking about it". Never received a response. Unprofessional and disorganized.

    Senior Manager/Manager Interview

    Declined Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Absolutdata.

    Interview

    Pretty un-organised. They were not sure for what profile they would like to interview me. They wont listen to your ambitions and self evaluation. At every call they offered me a different profile. Most funny part was HR round first and then followed by technical round. I declined their offer because they seem affected by pre-conceived notion which is surely a bottleneck in being creative and getting independence in work. The body language of the interviewer was someone who is not interested in talking to you.

    Interview Questions

    • exactly nothing. Not profile related questions but general talk without any direction.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I was asked to come to company's office in Hinjewadi for face to face interview. HR kept me waiting for approx 2 hrs and then said you have been scheduled for telephonic interview and can leave for the day. HR was extremely rude and uncooperative and just to cover up her mistake also told my interviewer that I was rejected in the telwphonic interview (which never took place). I have never seen such an unprofessional HR even in my IT career.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Absolutdata.

    Interview

    It was a short video interview. Most of the questions were on fit with the company and what I knew about the company.
    The interviewer wanted to know more about why with my background I would want to work with their company. I had three years experience in an unrelated field and I guess he wanted someone who had background in data analytics which I unfortunately didn't have.

    Interview Questions

    • Why would you want to work with us? Even though I had given reasons for this before this question was asked.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Absolutdata (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Initial communication over phone, invitation to visit the office for the first round of interview, second round after a week, and then another round after 4 days and then the final round with one of the co founders. Smooth interview process, however it could be more efficient. HR rep needs to make sure that the candidate does not have to wait for 2 hours (sitting in the office) to get the interview feedback.
