    QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Predictive Technologies (Arlington, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Had 45 minute phone interviews (20 minutes of behavioral questions, then 25 minutes for technical/case questions) before receiving an on-site invitation. Once there, I had four 45-minute interviews that pretty much followed the same format. Topics ranged from testing popular websites to specific product features to statistical tools. Received helpful feedback on things I could improve on, and usually heard within a day or two whether not I would move on to the next round.

    Interview Questions

    • General theme - if you want to test a feature/tool, what kind of datasets/inputs would you run through the system, and what would you expect to see?   Answer Question

    Quality Assurance Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Applied Predictive Technologies (Arlington, VA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position over both the APT website and my campus careers homepage. I received an invitation for a preliminary interview on campus the next day. The 45 minute interview consisted of 10 minutes of resume-based questions, a 30 minute technical question (evaluating the functionality of a website), and a brief Q&A session with the interviewer. The next day, I received an invitation for an on-site interview. The on-site interview process was similar to the preliminary interview - only there were four 45-minute interviews in one day with a break for an informal lunch with employees. The technical questions ranged from website evaluation to market sizing, and were fair, but challenging. Within two days, I received a call saying I wouldn't get an offer. Ultimately a disappointing result, but the APT employees were very friendly throughout, and the entire interview process was very organized and streamlined. Definitely the quickest interview process I have been a part of.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Predictive Technologies (Arlington, VA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen, first-round interview with 2 cases, second round with 4 cases. For the most part everyone was really nice and smart. I had one interviewer who was unprepared/disinterested. I also heard someone talking about me behind my back which was unfortunate. It was hard to get an impression of what the BAs actually did on a day-to-day basis - I asked all my interviewers that and nobody gave me a detailed response. My impressions of company: Pros - great pay, very smart people (or at least they went to great schools), casual dress code, lots of upward mobility, growing, good business model: Cons - Arlington isn't ideal, no office spaces for BAs, nerdy, job is essentially software support, questionable exit opportunities.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Applied Predictive Technologies (Washington, DC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Multiple Rounds - Phone Screen Followed by Two Rounds of On-site Interviews

    Phone screen was done by the recruiter
    1st round consisted of two 45 min interviews. Each interview had a case and a behavioral component
    2nd round consisted of 5 or 6 interviews over a 4.5 hr time frame. Of the 6 interviews, one was a coffee chat with a peer and another was a s/w demo. Remaining four were a combination of case and behavioral interviews. Personally, I found the 4.5 hr interview to be very tiring ... make sure you rest well the day before and take a few min break in between the interviews if possible

    Cases were a combination of quantitative and qualitative questions ... I liked all the folks who I interviewed with. I found them to be very passionate and very smart

    The hiring manager was very good and response all along the process

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked why I didn't get selected by McKinsey at my business school (I probably shot myself in the foot by revealing that information). Either ways, it was very tricky (and honestly odd) to answer the question   Answer Question

    Business Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Predictive Technologies (Washington, DC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online through my university portal—APT recruits at my school. First round interview was about 40 minutes, including a 25 minute case. Was notified via email that I was invited to DC for a second round interview, and interviewed along with some of my classmates in the Arlington office. Overall very positive experience, and APT really tries to get you to get to know the company through the interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Predictive Technologies (Washington, DC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Process involved a 45 min on-campus interview followed by a final day at the firm with more interviews and a panel to answer questions. All were cases with a short behavioral aspect beforehand. The interviews are pretty quant-heavy but other than that they just want to get to know how you think.
