    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    A company recruiting team member reached out to me about the job. Recruiter has been professional, straightforward and helpful. After phone interviews, I was invited to an on-site interview. Another recruiting team member scheduled my travel and nicely accommodated all my travel preference. The on-site interviewing team was professional, knowledgable and respectful. The company generously coverers all travel expenses and I had a pleasant experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at FICO (San Diego, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I worked at FICO as an intern so my interview process might not apply to everyone. I applied online and received a call the day after. After 2-3 phone calls, we scheduled an on-site interview. The entire process took less than a week. The interview, which lasted for roughly 2 hours, was extremely laid back. As an ex-intern, I had a great experience getting interviewed by some of the people I already knew at the office. Two weeks later, I received a call with an offer, which I accepted.
