    Average Interview

    Interview

    You begin with a hirevue - fairly standard questions that you can find online for the most part. I then had a call with an associate that was great - good conversation and he was nice enough to provide feedback and advice on what I could work on. Lastly I had a 2 hour superday. I felt good about the technical questions but had a harder time talking to the interviewers. Ultimately I did not get an offer

    Interview

    I had an onsite with three rounds. There was a panel right before the interview - which they did not notify us before -- you can ask questions about the program or the job to people who have already joined the firm. You choose different programming languages that you know and get questioned in a room full of other people but of course 1:1.

    Position: Big Data Development Team Lead
    The process was pretty fast and they ask you to get interviewed on short notices. I had 4 rounds of interview and in some cases with less than an hour of notice. One of the most unprofessional process I ever seen. I had 4 interviews in 3 days and 2 of them were on less than an hour of notice. Once the process was done senior recruiter called me to let me know that everything went fine and the hiring team wants to move ahead with me. They connected me with their immigration team and requested my immigration document. After this I never heard back from them again even after following up twice. The recruitment team doesn't even bothered to reply to my emails. Totally unprofessional behavior, think twice about this firm if you are an immigrant.
