    Data Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capital Group (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, HR phone screen with behavioral questions. Then a team lead phone interview with some technical and behavioral questions. Then four 1-on-1 interviews at HQ in LA. Most of the team were nice, humble and down to earth. Manager at the end seemed nice at first, but then she changed partly through the interview because she found out I was at my last role for 6 months. I was being up front and honest but she was off-putting. When I asked for constructive criticism at the end she gave a contrived smile and didn't say anything, so that was a big cultural red flag and immediately made me not want the job. I think there are enough jobs with clear and honest company culture that I don't want to be stuck at an up tight finance job. The job is a data analyst and has a bunch of technical requirements like R and Python but their analysts really just work with operations to create workflows so there isn't much in the way of actually analyzing data.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time where you received harsh constructive criticism?   Answer Question
    • What was the most innovative technical project you worked on in your last role?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a technical project where you failed to implement and what happend?   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capital Group (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    First interviewer was professional, second was curt and demeanour was unwelcome. The five minutes spent with second interviewer and attention to his cellphone, not detail was a big turn off and contrast to raved told about the company.
