    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    After a phone screen from the internal recruiter, I also had a phone screen with a senior data scientist. It was fairly straightforward, with the most difficult question being to pick a machine learning algorithm and describe how it works.

    Then, I had three half-hour interview sessions, and one longer interview session all on the same day in person at the chicago office. The first three mostly just had me discuss machine learning I had done in previous projects at school and work, were fairly conversational and straight forward. My fourth interview was a little trickier, as it contained a couple coding questions and typical "top data science interview questions" you might see on line.

    Nothing was terribly difficult. It was obvious they just wanted to make sure you know your stuff and would work well with the team.

    An alumni hosted a recruiting event at my university and he collected resumes. Heard back a few weeks later and was invited back for an interview. I had two back-to-back interviews with members of the tax team and then went out to lunch with my interviewers and a few more members of the tax team to see how I interacted and if they felt like I would be a good addition to the team. I received an email with an offer a little while later (I can't remember if it was a few days or a few weeks).
