    Digital Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Front-End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Experian (El Segundo, CA).

    Interview

    Phone screening was a 20-30 minute non-technical discussion with the tech. lead. Then I was asked to come in for an in-person interview.

    The interview was dated and odd. It consisted of a revolving door of individuals and groups asking questions, and requesting various simple code exercises be drawn out on a whiteboard with a dry-erase marker.

    The position was actually misrepresented. They advertised a need for a Front-end Developer. The questions, however, were for a full stack developer (very heavy on the SQL questions, also a large number of C# questions). The questions seemed to have no practical use in the real world.

    Interview Questions

    • You have a SQL table with 1 column, 100 rows. The value of row 1 is 1, row 2 is 2, etc. Write a query to output the date from the first day of the month to the last.   Answer Question
