    Interview

    They seem to have a lot of turnover, have trouble making decisions as a group and don't want to change their outdated ways. They seem VERY lost with too many changes in direction from senior leadership. Beware.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Experian (Costa Mesa, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I found the interview process to be very easy. The person interviewer did not have Hadoop experience so anything I said, he would believe. They were more focused on I was American who could speak English than focusing on my skill sets

    Data Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Experian (Costa Mesa, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was very straightforward - questions related to the job at hand, no trick questions. Phone screen with the recruiter, then hiring manager, in-person interviews (1:1 with hiring manager, person who'd done the role before, and hiring manager's supervisor). Follow up call with a dotted line manager for this role. When I mentioned Glassdoor reviews of the company (I read all 174 in prep for the interview), we had a good discussion about where the comments were originating - no defensiveness, lots of interesting information. Communication on stages and next steps was very easy and clear, their travel setup for the in-person was super easy to navigate. Nice team - I felt very welcomed.

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Costa Mesa, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Experian (Costa Mesa, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Although slow, the process was relatively easy due to an existing relationship I had with several of the stakeholders. One in person interview, 4 phone interviews. Questions were mostly about my relevant experience, asking me to go into some detail about the type of products I would be working with. Most of them felt like friendly getting-to-know-you conversations rather than interrogations (as most interviews feel to me). The hiring manager, in particular, was amazing and gave me the opportunity to address their concerns about some aspects of my job history.

    Leadership Development Program (MBA LDP) Interview Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Costa Mesa, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Experian (Costa Mesa, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    One of the most complex and competitive interviews I have ever participated in. If you are reading this you know what an LDP is, otherwise you are wasting your time reading about this interview process. Why was it complex and competitive. The actual interview takes about eight hours, you interview with multiple highly influential executives, 6 to 9, and it all happens in one day. In order to be considered for Experian's LDP you must be an MBA student who is about to graduate. Experian recruits at target schools only. However, I met one LDP graduate who came in from a non-target school. Although the actual interview takes an entire day, everything begins the night before with a social event. At this social event you get to meet everyone else who is applying to the LDP, your competition, as well as some of the people who may be interviewing you.

    About the applicants: In my case just about every applicant spoke multiple languages, went to a top tier university (or very well recognized school), and had worked at some big name company. If you are a very competitive MBA you will love this event. However, if you are shy, or have a difficult time engaging in organic conversation, you are going to feel left out.

    Interview day: Each interview is supposed to be about 30-40 minutes, however, a couple of my interviews lasted over an hour. It is very important to be able to interview with everyone as if they are your 8am appointment. I was able to maintain a solid energy level throughout the day, however, I heard that some applicants' energy level began to drop after the 20 minute lunch break.

    Almost all the interviewers do a good job at making the process fair, but with so many super qualified applicants it is very difficult to land a seat in the program.

    Good luck to you!

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Experian (Costa Mesa, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Met with manager and 2 senior developers in a single 1-hour interview in a small "huddle" room. They asked the typical interview questions (i.e. Tell me about yourself, etc.) but there were a few simple technical questions here and there to probe my knowledge of the technologies I would be using. At the end of the verbal interview, the manager gave me a written technical test that aimed to show my knowledge of program flow and state values of variables.

    Inside Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Costa Mesa, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Experian (Costa Mesa, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the inside sales position online on May 5th. Literally got a phone call the next day from the recruiter. She asked me about my background, and we went through my resume. She felt like I was a good candidate for the position and set up a phone interview with the Senior Inside Sales Manager the next day.

     I talked to the manager on the phone, and learned more about the position, got a chance to ask questions, and show I did research on the company. He asked me in particular about my sales experience. He felt I would be a good fit and told me he would like for me to have a face-to-face interview with his colleague (I live in California, but the position is in Schaumburg, Illinois)

    The face-to-face was scheduled a week later. I got a tour of the Costa Mesa Campus from the recruiter, we sat down and talked about my background again. I talked to her for about half an hour. Later, I had a chance to meet with the Sales Director, and talk to him for about 15-20 minutes, and finally had a video conference with the Senior Inside sales manager.

    The whole process was really smooth. Didn't ask any difficult questions. Just wanted to get a feel of you as a person. They made an offer the same day. I got a call from the recruiter a few hours later and was extended an offer.
