    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Experian (San Diego, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I met my recruiter at the school's job fair, had a brief chat, and was notified the next week by e-mail for my technical phone interview. I was interviewed by my recruiter from the job fair, who is an engineer, and another member from another team. The interview was less than an hour. There were a few questions about projects on my resume and then technical questions about data manipulation. Then I had two coding questions where I have to come up with and explain my algorithm. My interviewer was very nice and gave hints along the way. It has been two weeks and I am about to send another followup e-mail.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Experian.

    Interview

    Initial call with HR. She started off telling me why the position is open, because the last person couldn't 'catch up' (AKA fired) . Then she told me they're looking for someone very entrepreneur, basically someone that will work long hours and not get any equity. Then she said they had interviewed many candidates but the culture was not the right fit for them.. which tells me no one likes the culture... then after explaining the position, she asked if i thought it'd fit me, so i asked a few questions about my CONCERNS about the culture.. she then accused me of drilling her questions and throwing red flags bc i asked too much info about the culture. i only asked because bc she threw me red flags that they fired the last person becuase they couldnt keep up and cant hire anyone bc they dont wanna work for them. I never write reviews but this one had to be done. she was very rude

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Experian (Allen, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    A couple weeks after I applied, I recieved a call for a short phone interview. I'm guessing it went well because she scheduled a face to face interview the very next day. I interviewed with two guys. They were dressed very casual which is a plus. They were so nice & made me feel comfortable talking to them. Both guys asked a series of questions. After the interview, they told me I would hear back from them in a week. I heard back the next day & accepted the job offer.
