    U S Head of Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Walk me through your background and experience?
      What is my philosophy on performance management?
      Have I worked across the globe and supported business units at an international level?
      Compensation history.

    Interview

    Few Telephonic interviews and a technical round. I Wouldn't recommend it, rather try other global firms that are better value for your time and qualifications. Interviewers judge experienced candidates with a one or two questions as part of a case that they are tackling.

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics (Mumbai (India)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional process !! Had my 2nd round with the COO and after that they scheduled another round after 3 weeks. At the time of the interview, got a call from HR that interview stands cancelled and we are looking at you for another role. Not sure why could not they decide this 3 weeks back. Then got couple of calls from HR on scheduling the next round but they never did.

    While its a fundamental right of companies to accept or reject candidates, they need to learn to respect the person at the other end of the table.

    Interview Questions

    • Both rounds they are trying to see if you could solve their current problem and not at the overall experience of the candidate.   Answer Question

    why do you know about analytics ? and
    Why do you want to join the analytics company ?

    • In technical rounds they mostly go through what ever you have mentioned in the resume.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics (Mumbai (India)).

    Interview

    I applied through employee referral online. There were four rounds in all, consisting of one aptitude test and three interviews. The test consisted of Logical reasoning, Quantitative ability and verbal sections. It was pretty easy. Two interviews were technical (case study/guesstimate/resume review) and the third was HR (general behaviour related questions.

    Interview Questions

    • General resume-related grilling, and a case study/guesstimate. If a company decides to launch a particular type of shampoo in Mumbai, estimate how many bottles it should release at first. More puzzles in the third round and a general HR round in the end.   Answer Question

    Senior Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics in December 2015.

    Interview

    I had so much respect for the company but after getting interviewed I realized it's nothing good. The people that interviewed me were knowing nothing about the role they currently work at, they are not updated with any of the new aspects in Data science community. They can't identify talent as they have no knowledge. It has time for fractal to invest in their middle managers as well as HR. HR are pathetic, I think they should be given some technical training as well as hiring in IT based company is tough for people who have no interest.
