    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Conversant.

    Interview

    HR emailed me to set up a phone screen after I applied online three weeks ago. Two days after the phone screen, I interviewed with hiring managers. The third stage is onsite but I fail to make it.

    Interview Questions

    • HR asked me about my background and research experience. Hiring managers asked my research experience again but moved quickly to technical questions. Questions all belong to "top 100 data scientist interview questions" where you can found them from Google web search. I didn't answer well at that time since I spent all my time finishing my thesis. Now looking backward, these interview questions are easy and Conversant people are quite nice and friendly. Additionally, they are expanding company size and hiring data scientists recently. Give it a try.   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    First met with the technical recruiter. Then we arranged a 1 hour technical phone interview. After that I met with the engineering team. The overall process took roughly 3.5 hours. Very laid back interview process. I was asked behavioral/technical questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Conversant.

    Interview

    It was a phone screening. The two interviewers are very friendly and supportive. They give step by step guidance and lot of hint. Just remember to ask a lot of questions. They may keep description concise at the beginning, just to see that whether you know what information are needed to set up the problem. It is just a phone screening so I have to choose "no offer" below.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through on-campus recruiting, had a 30 minute phone interview, then a Super Day in Chicago. Asked me mostly behavioral questions during phone interview as well as some technical ones. Super Day consisted of three 45 minute interviews. First two interviews were mostly technical and last one was mostly behavioral. They asked me some of the same exact questions from my phone interview in person as well. It was my first technical interview ever so I didn't know what to expect. They are very helpful if you are stuck on technical questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was in contact with a recruiter. She initially called me for a phone interview and asked me a few general questions about why I was interested in the company, etc. About two weeks later she called me and asked me to come to the Chicago office for an interview. There were two sets of 30-minute interviews. My first round was with two men from the data warehouse department. They asked me general questions about my interests and experience in the technical field. Most of the time spent with them included one man talking for about 20 minutes about their complex data warehouse structure. My second round was with two software engineers from the ad server department. They asked me to solve a few puzzles and write a program on the white board. Overall it was a slightly intimidating process because I was cramped against a wall in a small room with two men grilling me on questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview by HR to screen for hiring VP. They are looking for general skill set around product management and data analytics. Once they do the initial screening, you interview with the VP of Product Management which I believe is also by phone. The final round is a series of interviews with multiple people. They had a very specific person in mind for the phone screen.
