    Interview

    Multiple Phone Interviews that were very identically and didn't really seem applicable to the job. I ended up emailing the HR team back after the first interview to set up a second with the same person, and haven't heard back since and its been almost a month. I'm not sure if they didn't see my reply or got confused, but I received a reply email the first time within hours.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Equilar (Nashville, TN) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Had a first round phone interview followed by a skype interview with two different people that involved a 45 minute assessment. I later was contacted to give a 15 minute PowerPoint presentation over skype. I gave the presentation and then never heard back from them again, despite being told I would hear back with a yes or no decision within two weeks. HR was terrible with communication throughout the process.

    First round (Hiring Manager) - behavioral questions and checked my technical skills.
    Second round - Basic java questions and one coding question.
    Third round - SQL queries

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Equilar (Nashville, TN) in July 2016.

    Interview

    At first, it was a 20 minute phone interview then a 2.5 hour long Skype interview a week later asking about projects, results, what I did at school, and what the company does. Then, they make you take a 45 minute, 3-part exam to test your analytical skills. After that, I talked with 2 more interviewers asking about certain scenarios and what I would do.

    Research Analyst/Leadership Rotation Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Equilar (Redwood City, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and spoke to Equilar representatives at my university career fair. HR Coordinator from Equilar reached out to me to schedule a phone interview but failed to respond to my availability. After a week, I followed up with the HR coordinator again about our aforementioned phone interview -- dead silence.

    As a last resort, had my friend who currently works at the company reach out to him personally to follow up with me -- again, dead silence and no response from the HR Coordinator.

    Don't waste your time filling out the online application and interviewing in-person only to have the CEO rip you a new one (according to my college friends who have applied). There is a high attrition rate and everyone is trying to leave for something better.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Equilar in May 2016.

    Interview

    I had several interviews over skype because I wasn't currently in the area . During one of the interviews there were a few timed assessments. You also have to create a presentation, and the last round is a quick interview with the CEO. The questions were pretty repetitive throughout the interviews, and a lot of it was about how you would handle the monotony of training.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Equilar (Redwood City, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email for the interview about two weeks later. Since I lived near L.A. at that time, they decided to interview me through phone instead of having me fly up to the Bay Area, which was very convenient. Overall it was a standard interview about what you know about the company and the position you applied for. However, the employee who interviewed me sounded rather uninterested and dry, which left a pretty dull impression about the firm. Afterwards, the interviewer said either her or someone else would follow-up with me about the decision in about two weeks. Two weeks later, nothing came. Based on all these reviews, it seems that this company lacks the common courtesy of following up with candidates and is probably not the type of employer you'd want to work for anyways.
