    Associate Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Linedata (Seattle, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and a series of questions via email that I responded to. After a month of waiting they got back to me for an in-person interview. The interview was in a group format, and we were asked to work as teams to come up with a business idea for a product and an implementation plan for that idea (my group got VR, the other got drones). Lastly, after another week we had a final in-person interview with two of the managers in the department.

    Interview Questions

    • What does analysis mean to you?   Answer Question
    • Who in this group would you hire? (during group interview)   1 Answer
    • Has an analysis you made ever been challenged? How did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Linedata (Boston, MA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    A bit convoluted of a process - started with HR phone screen, then a marketing team member - then call with Head of Marketing in Paris all via phone - then in person meetings in Boston ( the job was in NY but never met with anyone there or stepped in the NYoffice ...very ODD) Met with 3 different people in Boston - every single person described the job differently - never got titles or department of those I met in Boston -very unhappy environment - The marketing women I had lunch with was stressed -seemed to lack faith in the rest of the team and implied no one knew what they were doing and the job might be overwhelming.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked if you could be remembered for one sentence, what would it be   1 Answer
    • They asked me if I was okay mailing Christmas Cards for sales ... firstly not very PC should have asked if I could do holiday cards -Second seemed like a VERY detailed question for interview   1 Answer

    IT Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Extremely slow interview process - 2 phone interviews and 1 in person interview. It took about 2 months from the initial interview to the offer (maybe I wasn't their first choice).

    Technical interview was over the phone. The in person interview was mostly chatting with managers/directors. Seemed like a fine place to work but I had gotten a better offer while waiting for theirs.

    Interview Questions

    • A newly added server is unable to communicate over an IPSec tunnel between two ASAs. All other communication over the tunnel is working. What do you look for?   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Linedata in June 2014.

    Interview

    A staffing agency contacted me asking if I was interested in this position, so they established the initial communication with HR and set me up with an interview. I arrived at the building at their Boston location and checked in at the bottom floor before proceeding to the Linedata suite on one of the upper floors where I met with the development manager.

    I had one interview. We discussed my work history along with my current role and then transitioned into general questions on different technologies and architecture. I was then brought to a whiteboard and was asked to write algorithms for two separate problems.

    My overall impression of the company was good. The office was very professional looking with low cubicles and was fairly quiet. Also, while I was in the elevator I was warmly greeted by another Linedata employee from a different department.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult part of the interview was the technical part where I was asked to write an algorithm to reverse an array and then write another to find a missing number in a series of numbers. The questions were not terribly difficult but were definitely the most difficult questions of the interview.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Linedata (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Phone screen interview. Besides the general questions about my resume there were two other questions. Note: these are the typical questions that degree centered interviewers ask. The point is to see how you think but here it is just the challenge to see how smart you are.

    It seems more competitive than collaborative. I did not like the "tone" of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Write (pseudo-code) and function to reverse a string   1 Answer
    • Given a large array where the next item of the array is 2 more than its predecessor (example: 5,7,9,11,13,15 . . . ) write a function to locate the position in the array where the difference is not 2.   1 Answer
    • Write a function that returns a string that is the sum of two integers represented by strings. The point is that the numbers represented by string would be larger than an int can hold. Example: string Sum(string valueOne, string valueTwo) { . . .}   Answer Question

    Junior Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Linedata (Seattle, WA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    This communication with this company started when the recruiter (in California) emailed me to answer 10 questions for which I answered, in what it seems when she replies, satisfactory manner. She then asks to schedule an on-site 1:1 interview afterwards said we had to schedule a phone interview. Since it was towards the end of the week, I scheduled them back to back. The phone interview is the usual recruiter chat. The on-site interview consisted of 4 questions, which were very easy... almost insulting really. He asked me to create a blackjack program on paper to which I replied that "I don't know how to play Blackjack.. Can you tell me the rules?" Changes the question entirely to code a card class...... The on-site interview was imho, a 2 hour (1 hour transportation/1hour interview) waste of time as it could have been done over the phone with a google doc.

    Interview Questions

    • Not difficult.... Code a Deck and Card class then three sql questions that involve the use of JOINs and one that involves the use of COUNT / DISTINCT or COUNT / GROUP BY.   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Linedata (Boston, MA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I went through A&A search for this job and got an interview right away. On the outside the company looks very formal but it turned out to be a very casual environment. The interviewers were very polite (at least one of them were) and friendly.

    Interview Questions

    • Given an array which contains a string, lets say "COMMUNITY", write a program in C/C++ that will print the letters of the string in reverse.   1 Answer
