    Web Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Experian (Costa Mesa, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online through company website. Got 1 phone call through recruiter, 2nd phone call with hiring manager, and 5 face to face on site interviews with 9 interviewers on a single day.
    Worst company to be interviewed for. After interview no correspondence from the company's recruiter at all even for a follow up mail. Even after 2 weeks, no reply or call from recruiter. A rejection would have been better as compared to 2 weeks of waiting for a simple reply.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Experian (Costa Mesa, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    1 phone call with recruiter, 1 phone call with hiring manager, and a tiring in-person interview with 8 people with very quick 30 minute rounds

    phone calls left me with a positive impression, but the in-person interview did not...2-3 of my interviewers were not very friendly. while they kept reiterating that this was a junior level position, the questions and degree to which they grilled me did not reflect that. be prepared to take a written SQL test, to have little explanation on it, and then to have it graded in front of you. style of the interview was a lot more like an interrogation and not a conversation. they did not leave me with much time to ask them questions. honestly, i wasn't left with a huge desire to work for them after this, but i probably still would've taken an offer due to the $$

    if they don't like you, don't expect any correspondence afterwards, not even an automated rejection letter. they mentioned that they have been recruiting for this position for a long time...good luck to them, seems like they are extremely picky for an entry level role.

    Digital Product Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Experian.

    Interview

    I applied for this position and shortly after received an email from I am assuming one of the recruiters. The only reason I knew they were affiliated was by manually looking at the email - no signature, no context to the email - just an email requesting a phone interview.

    Once the phone interview was scheduled, I started looking extensively into employer reviews and the outlook of the company. Ultimately, I did not deem to be a good fit for this position and emailed the recruiter to remove myself from the running, cancel the phone interview and wish them luck in filling the position.

    I get a random email today from said same recruiter days later spouting everything I heard about the company and what the employees are saying is "Fake News" - further affirming that I trusted my gut and made the right decision to not continue.

    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

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Experian (Franklin, TN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The most unprofessional interview i gave ever been subjected to. One manager was nice but the other was talking to someone else during the interview, laughing and asking questions that did not pertain to the job i was interviewing for and over all being rude. These people reached out to me but acted insulted that i was interviewing. I will never under any circumstances work for this company.
