    Data Operations Interview

    Anonymous Employee in White Plains, NY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (White Plains, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through my college career portal. The company emailed me the same week to set up an initial phone screen. The phone screen was basic stuff just about availability and school. They called me back later the same day to invite me in next week.

    At the office I interviewed 1:1 with three different hiring managers from three different teams. Basic SQL questions you can find by googling SQL interview questions, basic riddles, minor behavior questions. Overall was an easy and smooth interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (White Plains, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had a good experience being interviewed for this role. It was a 20 minutes telephonic interview.
    The interviewer asked me about my projects related to SQL. What was it about? How much did I contribute to it?
    The overall interview was smooth and basically is was a resume walk through.
    They have three rounds I believe.. Phone screening, then in person interview.

    Data Operations Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (White Plains, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through university career portal. Got a phone interview call which was just introductory. During the call itself, the HR invited me to an onsite interview the very next day (I agreed because I was free)

    This was when I decided to check Glassdoor reviews for Argus, and I was shocked. I immediately lost interest in working here, but still went prepared for the interview because I didn't have an internship then. I decided to ask the HR during the onsite interview why the Glassdoor reviews are so pathetic.

    Now the actual interview process. I was interviewed by 3 managers, 30 minutes each. First guy was super young, almost seemed like I was his first ever interview. He didn't know what to ask, just went through my resume. I got done with this guy in 15 minutes.

    The next interviewer was decent, asked relevant SQL questions and resume based questions. The questions were very basic, like the kinds you find when you google "SQL Interview Questions"

    The third interviewer seemed like a senior manager, middle aged. He couldn't understand one of my projects and wasted 20 minutes arguing with me about it unnecessarily. He, like the second guy, asked generic SQL questions and cliched puzzles like counting time with candles.

    The overall feel of the place, just walking through it, was depressing. I could literally sense a "lol don't come to work here" vibe from a few of them who looked at me walking around.

    Thankfully for me, I had an interview process going simultaneously at a startup, where everything was SO different and SO much better.

    They offered me an internship 2 weeks later with an absolutely pathetic offer (less than half of what the startup is paying me) and considering this company is in White Plains, I wonder why anyone would consider it. Seemed like a joke offer, a company that doesn't value it's employees at all.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (Middletown, CT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    On-campus interview with school alumnus followed by an on-site interview. Argus was accommodating in switching my on-site interview to a Skype interview when I could not make it to the office due to snowy conditions on the scheduled day of my interview. Received the offer within a week of my Skype interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through a job board. HR recruiter got in touch with me about a week later to setup a phone interview. Then she scheduled me for a phone interview with a manager for the next day. Manager calls the next day, only to say he needs to reschedule so we reschedule for the same day but a couple of hours later because he says he's traveling. He calls back (and is still traveling) he says he hasn't even read my resume. I assume that also means he hasn't read through my Linkedin profile. It's so dumb to do an interview without reading up on a candidate. If a candidate showed up to an interview with no knowledge of the company or position that would not end well for the candidate, would it?
