    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FICO in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through college. As pathetic as it could get. It had two rounds, one technical and one HR. 16 people were shortlisted. Some were having HR and some technical first. Out of 16 people, they rejected 9 in HR(apparently). We were supposed to have our technical round when suddenly they gave the result taking 5 out of 7 people who had both rounds and out which 3 were girls. They took all girls(obviously) and though one of them had the most terrible technical round possible. I can't name the officials to present there but thanks for not recruiting me.
