Interview

To preface this I will start with Equifax immigration and HR team, they were the most dis-honest people I ever met. Technical managers and technical interviewers are very honest and good to interact. First, I applied for a role and then I got an email from HR stating that I was selected for further interview process, and then I submitted my availability. Then No response from the recruiter for over two months irrespective of many times I followed up. Two months later I got another email from a new recruiter that they are interested to go forward with my application and arranged a basic HR call where they answer general questions about Equifax work culture and immigration questions. They agreed to sponsor and started interview process. First there was phone round for one hour and then there was multiple video interviews with different people in the team. There after I was asked to visit onsite for final interview. At this stage I again confirmed with HR whether they were sponsoring H1 and they said Yes. After the onsite interview, interviewing manager asked me not to accept any offer as they would be releasing an offer for me. Two days later I got a call from HR stating that we were interested in releasing an offer for you, but we are getting push back from Immigration department and they cant release an offer due to this. It's okay if they don't want to sponsor, but what is the point of interviewing me when they don't hire immigrants? Happy to be not part of their organization. I got an offer to work for the planet's desirable company almost all tech people deserve to work for.

Interview

I went through a brief phone interview, then an in-person interview with a couple of the people I would be working with. They explained more about the job and asked questions about my experience relative to what I would be doing for them, if they hired me. About a week later, I was scheduled to talk to the department head by phone. The department head also asked good questions and answered some questions that I had. I think it was a reasonable interview process, about what you might expect.

Interview

Video interview with two Indian developers. Standard interview questions and 2 questions about how you would go about solving such problems. Questions and responses were difficult to understand due to heavy accent. The questions were not properly addressed and had to be restated multiple times in different manners. Many of my questions about quality of work and the team dynamics were adverted and answered in a non-direct way which was not a good sign for me.

Interview Questions
  • 1) What technologies can you use? 2) What databases do you know? 3) What is your experience like? 4) How would you develop a program to represent a number in the string word form Ex: 1,230 -> one thousand two hundred thirty 3,000,210 -> three million two hundred ten 5) How would you represent a receipt as a schema? - What would the key be and other attributes? 6) What is the difference between a foreign key and the primary key

Interview

The whole process took almost a month. First was a phone screening with an HR. I was then passed to someone else handling my application. Got an email 2-3 days later to ask me for my available days for the next process, a video interview with the Hiring Manager. Gave her my availabilities but she did not tell me when the interview would be, only the process on how to get in the video interview. I got an email 2 days after that just said video interview at 12:30pm on the same day as the email. Regardless, I did the interview. I never received any update nor any answer from the person handling my application. 2 weeks later I emailed the HR and even then there was no answer. I got a generic email at 3 am about my application being rejected. Say the least it's very unprofessional.

Interview

I went through two interviews, and did not learn how many steps the process was, although I believe there were more. The first call was with their internal recruitment team and was positive. They asked specific questions about my work history and experience. The second interview was with the hiring manager and was very unstructured. The manager did not seem to have any prepared questions and wanted to talk about the role and the history of the team; I don't believe I was asked anything specific during the interview at all. They repeated one extended anecdote about why the previous hire left twice, word for word. The 30-min interview ran 45 min. During the interview the manager described that they were looking for someone who met the on-paper job criteria, but who could also build up internal processes and documentation, as an additional body of work on top of that, as well as having strong customer-facing skills that had hitherto not been a major part of the role. They emphasized that there would not be onboarding or existing documentation for anyone hired and that the hire would be expected to create this. I've done this exact role very successfully in another industry for a Great Place To Work top company, and was explicitly told by the manager that the fact that I was new to the credit risk industry was a non-factor. I have also done this second body of work successfully at multiple businesses. The interviewer described this as a major strengths and generally spoke very positively about my background and fit for the role. Nothing is a guarantee in job applications, but I was given to understand that I was at least a strong candidate. The conversation I had with the hiring manager was overall very positive but did not feel like an interview. I'm left feeling unclear as to what they were looking for that I did not possess as I simply wasn't asked enough. If there was a specific problem or doubt, I was not given any opportunity to address such. The process was overall quick and took two weeks. I was not given information about why I was declined. Since interviewing, the job has been reposted fresh to online job boards.

Interview Questions
  • I was asked to ask the interviewer about the role.
  • I was asked why I no longer worked at my last job, but the interviewer seemed to think twice about it and retracted the question on the basis of generally high unemployement during COVID-19.
