    Lead Data Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dunnhumby (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Had an initial phone screen and was asked to come in on short notice the very next day. I had no problem with that and accommodated. The first in person interview was with a department head followed by another interview with the hiring manager and another associate. After those interviewers the recruiter said I will hear back in 2 weeks. About after 2.5 weeks I followed up to find out the status. Never got a reply back! Never even got a rejection call or email either....just nothing. Had to see the position was taken down to finally get some closure that I did not get the job. That shows a definite lack in professionalism in my opinion. They promote work hard play hard but I guess that comes at the expense of courtesy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dunnhumby (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview. The questions were not that difficult and I was asked to come in for an in person interview. The interview as broken up into three 45 minute sections. One section was just like a normal interview. The remaining sections were for a case study. We had 45 minutes to prepare the given case study and then 45 minutes to present it. This was the most difficult past of the interview. I wasn't sure if the responses I was giving were the ones they were looking for and the person that was conducting the interview didn't have much to say.

    They came to campus for first round interviews. Next day they contacted me for a final office interview for the next week. Final interview involved a 45 min case study, 45 minute group interview, and a standard 45 minute one on one interview. They do a good job of paying for your travel expenses.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Dunnhumby.

    Interview

    Applied online through campus recruiting, talked to recruiters at career fair, and went to call out event. Also took an IQ-like test as part of the application.

    I got an interview on campus (seems like for people at smaller schools this tends to be a phone interview) where they asked me about my experience with using excel and other data analysis tools. Being able to code was definitely a plus.

    I was asked to go for a second round interview at their HQ in Cincinnati. They're building a new one set to open this summer, but they showed us around anyway. We had to do a case interview, behavioral interview, and group task for the actual interview.

    Waited a couple weeks and received a call that I received an offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dunnhumby in October 2014.

    Interview

    Did a competence and intelligence test through a computer. Was almost only numerical questions and no logical at all. Everything was computer-based and you got timed on every question. One bad thing is that I haven't heard from them yet, but it went really bad so I figure that im out.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dunnhumby (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    I was contacted by someone in the project management group for a phone interview. I was asked to quickly run through my previous experience and describe the role, challenges, deliverables, etc.

    Everything seemed fine until I was abruptly interrupted toward the end. The only way I can accurately describe what happened next would be to say I was "dressed down". At this point it became clear that the woman I was speaking to never had any intention of hiring me and was having a very bad day. She proceeded to tell me all the reasons I was not a good fit for the role and actually got pretty personal making several remarks that explained to me how she didn't think I was a good IT employee in general. This was very surprising, especially since I had been in a much larger role at a fortune 5 company for the past 11 years.

    Needless to say, there was no offer. If there was an offer of employment, I would have promptly declined it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dunnhumby (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    I had to take an assessment after having my resume accepted. It was pretty hard, but I managed to pass. Questions centered around reading charts/graphs and doing calculations. I didn't hear back for a month or so, but eventually did.

    After that, it was very quick process. I got notified of a video interview, was scheduled 2 days later, got notified of the on-site that same night, and then flew to the office about 5 days later.

    The video interview was part behavioral, part mini-case. The mini-case asked me to walk through my thought processes when starting a company. Other questions included "What would you do if you had 48-hour access to a grocery store's database.

    A lot of the questions focused on what you would do with data containing "any information you'd find on a grocery receipt."

    The on-site interview consisted of four 45-minute segments. 45 minutes for an interview very similar to the video. 45 minutes to prepare a presentation of a case. 45 minutes to present the case, and 45 minutes behavioral interview.

    • The main case during the super day was a presentation. I was given 45 minutes to look at the case (design a method for evaluating the success of the launch of a given product). Then I had 45 minutes to present the case to an interviewer. It wasn't particularly hard, but was just different.   Answer Question
