    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Factual.

    Interview

    Had two interviews with Factual: 1 HR, 1 Hiring Manager. Nothing technical at all. just some high level chat on my experience and resume. Although I have got positive feedback from interviewer, I got rejected. They guy that interviewed me was not experienced at all and did not ask even a single technical question. A bit unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Factual.

    Interview

    The process is super long, which is about 2 months. I had so many interviews and all of them went well. As all the reviews said, the do not give out offers. People work there got their jobs without interviews.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Factual in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had a terrible experience- not with the interview itself, but with getting responses from the company and trying to actually get the interview itself.

    I talked to Factual recruiters at my university career fair, and gave them my resume. I received an email within the next week, and I ended up scheduling an interview with them. When the interview date arrived, the interviewer didn't call me, and the recruiter didn't bother emailing me.

    I sent the recruiter an email telling them what had happened, and the recruiter took almost a week to respond, answering with a vague excuse. She asked me if I was available for another interview, and when I told her my availabilities, I just got radio silence from her again.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Factual (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I had the initial phone screening and got invitation to go on site. The onsite interview composes for 4 technical interviews, and then I also got to have lunch with some engineers. The interviews were horrible organized; some executive was supposed to interview me for my first interview but did not show up and some engineer got pulled in the last minute. My second interviewer was swapped with the fourth interviewer - very unorganized.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a link to a simple coding challenge. They called me for a phone interview, but I didn't quite meet their technical expectations. Really nice and encouraging people.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Factual (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    The process went somewhat quick. I applied online. Recruiter called and phone screened. Was interviewing elsewhere and that led to a rush of going in person to meet with would-be manager. That went super well (sarcasm). It was a bit disappointing and also an eye opener. After following up with recruiter a week later was told I was not selected to move forward - and was told they had other candidates to consider. More so seemed they wanted someone with the exact title of the role they were hiring for, and that that person have been in that role for 5+ years...very innovate and forward-thinking right?
