    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics.

    Interview

    Love the company and it seems to be on the right trajectory. Found out that it's mandatory for all sales reps to go to the New Jersey everyday. Who goes to the office to sell?

    Interview Questions

    • Asked all the right questions, then the last question: Can you come to New Jersey everyday for work? That means come in then go out to sales calls. Not efficient use of time and energy.   1 Answer

    U S Head of Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter indicating that I had been selected amongst a group of candidates that were short-listed. Recruiter screen via phone for approx 1/2 hour. Recruiter mainly inquired into my background and experience with talent management, human capital, immigration, and international experience. Contacted again indicating that there was interest and arranged another call with their Chief HR Officer. During the conversation with the CHRO, it was clear that there was a communication challenge (both parties) as she had a difficulty time understand American accent and articulation. It was also quite difficult understanding the interviewer as she lives and works from India. The interviewer took advantage of our time together to gain intel on how the US operates and what commonly used talent management technology we use. I think they will need to only source non-American candidates as 98% of their work population seems to be from India based on research. Received an email indicating that they decided to pursue other candidates. It is clear from the Glassdoor reviews that this company is plagued with issues. Good thing that they didn't want to pursue further as that would have also been my decision to not proceed to any next steps. Huge cultural disconnect, unfortunately.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics (Bengaluru (India)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process for me comprised of 5 stages -
    1. Technical Interview – This discussion was more about my past experience, and understanding if my experience matches the role requirements.
    2. CPG Domain Interview – Questions on analytical tools and techniques, multiple guesstimate questions like these (1. Predicting the fate of a new movie, 2. Elevator logic, and 3. Estimating the volume of traffic passing the company campus on ORR)
    3. HR Interview – Questions on the leadership style, stakeholder management skills, ranking technical skills, and role fitment review
    4. Written test – SQL (6 questions in 60mins)
    5. Domain Interview – Again, questions on analytical tools and techniques, discussion on my past experience, and multiple guesstimate questions (1. Estimating the market for a new pharma product launch, and 2. Improving profit margins for a restaurant chain)

    All rounds I believe are elimination rounds, including the HR round.

    The whole interview experience was a pleasant one, and was very well managed by the concerned HR (Rachna). The interviewers too were very courteous and appeared to be experts in their respective domains. It was a pleasure interacting with the team (Takshila, Kishore, and Minu).

    Hope to successfully crack the interview the next time around!

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics.

    Interview

    Shortlisting : I applied via Linkedin. I did Internship in Deep Learning and won a Hackathon, I guess they shortlisted me because of these credentials even though it required experience and I am a Fresher.
    1st Round : Codind test on Hacker rank. 1 ML problem and 3 normal coding challenges. Got accepted to the next round.
    2nd Round : Telephonic. It was worse. I lost all my confidence half way through. Interviewer had the worst fluency and pronunciation I had ever seen. I couldn't answer some questions which I can explain even in my sleep. Lost the round.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics (Bengaluru (India)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Total of 5 rounds. Each is an elimination round.

    1) Online Aptitude test(Moderate Difficulty)
    2) Online SQL test(Moderate Difficulty) - other options are R, python, etc
    3) Personal discussion - Technical round(Difficult)
    4) Personal discussion - Business round(Difficult)
    5) Personal discussion - HR round(Difficult)

    Personal Discussion rounds mostly centered around things mentioned in your resume. Interviewers asked a lot of good quality questions about them. So if you are sure and confident about them then there is no issue there. Case studies and guesstimate questions were asked in Technical and business rounds. Some technical questions about SQL, excel were also asked. HR round was filled with typical HR questions.

    All the interviewers were very warm and well behaved.

    I cleared all the rounds and this is where the issue started. Few days after the interview I got a mail from my HR point of contact to share documents like payslips, appointment/offer letter, etc. I replied them promptly with the details. One day later I got a mail from them stating that I am not a suitable match for the role. And I am getting this after clearing all the rounds and then HR went ahead and got the documents from me too.

    If I was unsuitable for the role, my profile shouldn't have been shortlisted or the interviewers should have rejected me. Either of that didn't happen. So I'm not sure what went wrong and who made that decision. I spent 4000k for travel and accommodation to attend an interview for which I was "not suitable". I didn't expect this from a company like Fractal. This is not how I wanted to remember the company.
