    Data Solutions Architect Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Citco (Jersey City, NJ) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Initial communication was via a recruiter, followed by an in-person interview with the hiring manager. After that, phone screens with 2-3 potential peers (one bailed), then in-office interviews with manager's peers, business clients, and superiors. The message was consistent that fit with corporate culture was a key necessity; however, different interviewers did seem to have different (and sometimes conflicting) priorities with regards to the position requirements. Some interviewers did not preview the resume before arriving at the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Citco (San Francisco, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I went in on two separate days and met with about six different 2 to 3 person teams. They were all from different levels and from different teams within the office. Asked very general interview questions about work history, strengths and weaknesses, etc. Pretty typical, not very many technical questions.

    Interview

    You interview with the HR manager and then the managers of the team that you are interviewing for. The interview process is pretty quick and not very painless. I had a much longer interview with the managers of my potential team.
