    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at FICO in October 2015.

    Interview

    After talking to one of the analytic consultants at a school career fair, I had several phone interviews that we're all fairly standard and then had one 4 hour long interview at FICO's analytic headquarters. This interview process included 2 "technical" interviews that had questions about regressions and tested your problem solving skills and 2 other more general interviews. Overall I thought that the interview process was very fair and provided me with a lot of information about the job and the work environment which was helpful for making a decision once I got the offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at FICO (San Rafael, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the San Rafael office (CA). My first interaction was at the career fair at UC Berkeley and from there I went through 4 rounds interview.
    1st -HR - primarily behavioral asking about the kind of work i have been doing - 15-20 mins
    Had to wait a long time (~2 months) to get an answer to if i m going to the next round
    2nd - Behavioural - asking to describe the kind of analytical projects I have done - ~30 mins
    3rd- i interviewed with the team - general behavior questions and one technical interview
    4th - behavioural - similar to 2nd interview
    They were quick in process from round 2-4, very adjusting with your day/time preferences for the interviews. It was a smooth process except for the long wait after round 1.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FICO (San Rafael, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very positive experience. Met the recruiters at my college career fair, got along with them very well. A recruiter called me the following week to set up a phone screening to go over basic information, i.e. when I was graduating, what type of job I was looking for, etc. Had an additional phone Interview to go over my resume a bit more in depth and my tech skills.

    Next was an on-site interview. This involved 4, one-hour interviews with 4 members of the team I would be working with. 3 basic interviews going over your skills and background and 1 tech screening. I really enjoyed all the people I spoke with and got along with them very well. Was pretty casual, much more of a conversation feel than an actual interview.

    Had one final interview the following week with the Lead Director of the team and was notified I was getting an offer a few days later.
