    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Experian (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online and interviewed in person 3 times and once on the phone. The process took over a month. Somewhat strange and felt impersonal at times to do the entire process through an ATS portal. Communication could have been better but given the company is so large, I was content.

    Strategy Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Initial screen by HR, then a screen by the potential manager (VP), later a full day interview on-site with 4 of the VPs of the team.

    1st HR screen was straightforward and fair. 2nd one with the hiring team was also fairly straightforward, but required a bit more articulation for why the role, why would it be a good fit, etc.

    Final day was quite tough. Started with typical questions about background and experience but quickly turned into a fire drill interview.

    Rapid fire of why do you want to work here, what is your prior experience, what kind of projects have you worked on, then in strong detail explain every recommendation. As someone with a multitude of projects it's not always possible to remember everything in clear detail. Later on, it became, so now we hire you, how do we grow? - very open-ended, no context, no clarity, just a fire drill of an interview.

    Moreover, there was strong questioning on why the motivation for the role given relative short experience in current job when that could have been screened for during the 1st 2 rounds easily. Having been through a great multitude of case interviews with top firms, it was way too open-ended, without any material or information, and without adequate time or structure. Finally, be prepared for people that speak very quickly. Quite surprising to see in an OC based company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Experian.

    Interview

    Weird. They scheduled a phone interview which was rescheduled 3 times - twice ahead of the call and once the person just wasn't available. They then sent a mail saying I cleared the phone screen when in fact it had not happened at all. Invited for an onsite interview and was told to bring a project I could discuss. Did not discuss the project at all. They also said you did not need to know SAS but ended up taking a test which was 50% SAS questions (on SAS syntax). The team seemed highly uninterested in the interview itself.

    After applying was immediately invited for in person interview. It’s not a real interview they just want to see you and then will invite you back to interview you. The manager said it was actually an entry level sales role not marketing related. It’s also hourly pay with no benefits which they wouldn’t say before coming in. They want to train you.
