    Analyst Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    This was an on-site interview.

    Technical interviewer was pretty emotionless and sarcastic, not to mention that the interviewer constantly cut me off every time I tried to explain what my solution did. The interviewer didn't make me feel welcome at all. I would have greatly appreciated it if he smiled more.

    However, everyone else I spoke to was much more polite. The day ended with a short written technical assessment.

    For all the coding questions, make sure you know how to optimize your solution (i.e. how can I make this better/faster?). YOU WILL BE ASKED TO DO THIS.
