    Senior Analytics Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Exl Service in June 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter informed me about the positions with EXL in NY/NJ areas. I had 3 telephonic interviews. Interviews were well structured and EXL know what they want from candidate.

    I really loved the interview process. They made me think, analyze, speak my thoughts. It wasn't like other monotonous companies asking for only previous projects and experience.

    Interview 1: puzzle, business case, guess estimate
    Interview 2: Analytics, Domain and Projects. It was by a Senior Manager
    Interview 3: It was by a VP. It was primarily about analytics projects , analytics basics. He was poised. He did not give any indications about result, and kept it for later decision.

    I was positive I would get it and I would add great value to this company and it's client. Unfortunately I haven't heard back from them. Even staffing agency tried to get interview result, he hasn't been able to get any response. other candidates who went through this staffing agency also did not hear back from EXL.

    Ambitious company like EXL should atleast drop a note about interview result or their strategy. Keeping mum doesn't suit them.

    Anyways, if you get an offer from this company, stick to it, your value will grow.

    Analytics Consultant - Decision Analytics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Exl Service (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I got in touch with a recruiter, who responded after three weeks, scheduling a phone interview a week later. I cleared the phone interview ( which consisted of logical questions, a couple of puzzles, probability questions ). The phone interview lasted an hour, was a very positive experience.

    The next day, I was invited to an onsite interview a week later with two people. The first onsite interview went really well. It was more of a conversation and again, logical questions and a couple of puzzles. The whole interview lasted an hour. Feeling confident, I went on to the third round.

    The third round was conducted by a rather rude Indian guy ( I'm an Indian myself...just for perspective ) I was able to answer many standard probability questions, until he gave me a rather difficult and confusing case study, which I started off well, and wasn't able to finish. He then asked me another probability question for which he pressed on for quick answers, once I gave them, he just bluntly said "ok, thank you" to signal the end of the interview. This last interview probably lasted 20-25 mins.

    Few weeks later, I found out that another friend of mine had his first phone interview done by the same person, and he was pretty rude to him too ending his phone 'interview' in barely 15 mins.

    I was banking on the other two interviews which went well, hoping for an offer, but I got a reject pretty much the next working day. It took time, but I found another position elsewhere.

    On hindsight, I'm very glad I didn't end up working for this company.
