    Junior Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mu Sigma in July 2017.

    Interview

    I saw the posting on my school career website and emailed my resume to the recruiter. Very quickly I heard back and was invited for an online assessment. The assessment consisted of multiple behavioral questions where I would record my answer. The more in-depth ones were asking why I wanted this program and to explain the columbus program as if I were a college recruiter. Then, there was a rapid fire round of questions asking me what new things I have learned recently, if I were to give a ted talk what would it be on, etc. Then, there were logic questions and an essay. They give you plenty of time for the reading comprehension and math questions. I would recommend looking up sample gmat questions because the format is exactly the same as those questions. Then, there was an essay.

    After a week, I heard back and was invited for a live face-to-face interview with the India team. This was more of an opportunity to ask questions about the program and the job. Very laid back conversation.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Mu Sigma in May 2017.

    Interview

    The total time was around 7 days. I sent my resume to a recruiter. After that I was invited to do an aptitude test, it consisted of reading comprehension questions and multiple choice math questions. The video portion of the test was some 2min questions and some quick 30sec questions. After that, you have 20 minutes to write an essay.

    If you pass this round then they'll invite you for a video interview in which the recruiter is there to answer any questions you have about the role and the company and to get to know you better.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Mu Sigma (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Had just two phone interviews with people in India. They were both very friendly and professonal. It didn't go any further than that. I may have priced myself out of the process as the salary needs question came up in the very first of two phone conversations. I appreciated the fact that they showed any interest at all because my background was not in data analytics. Note that they send new employees to India for training of 3 -12 months in duration.

    Applied online, uploaded resume. Was contacted maybe a day or two later. Took a math/reasoning online assessment. Then attended an online webinar where you watch a video on the program and then are able to ask an employee any questions about the program. Was then invited for skype interview. Interviewer was absolutely lovely. Overall the process was very easy and all of the representatives I spoke to were very kind and accommodating.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mu Sigma.

    Interview

    First stage is an interview in which you record yourself giving the answers to questions that pop up on the screen and then giving a short assessment that consists of basic math and comprehension questions. Second stage was pretty simple, I just spoke to someone who was working with the program itself and they just asked me what I thought I'd be doing with the program.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mu Sigma (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I met two Mu Sigma recruiters at a career fair and received an online assessment a few days later. The assessment consists of a few behavioral questions with two minute recorded responses. After that, there is a "flash round" in which a question is posted and then you have 30 seconds to respond. There was about ten questions in that round and they are also behavioral. After the recorded videos, there is a 15 question aptitude test that you must complete in under 35 minutes. The questions were fairly straight forward. Finally, you end with a twenty minute written assessment. My prompt was "Describe something you can confidentially say you're a master at" or something similar.
    After passing the assessment, I attended a live webinar with two Mu Sigma employees and other candidates. Candidates were able to ask the two employees about their experiences with the company.
    The last interview is a one on one with a recruiter at Mu Sigma. That interview is more of a get to know you interview and no real difficult questions are asked.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mu Sigma (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Most communication is done via email. First step is sort of a diagnostic test online. First section consists of common interview questions which you record the answers to in under 3 minutes. Next section you record answers to some shorter interview questions (under a minute). Another section includes sat like questions (math and reading passage. Last part is a 500 word max essay. All sections are timed and video recorded.

    After the diagnostic, applicants are invited to attend a webinar about the company.

    Granted this position is for recent grads, seems like a lot of candidates and a lot of hoops to jump through.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mu Sigma (Raleigh, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview began with a lengthy online assessment. After logging in, I had the option to watch three videos about the company. The first stage was a video interview—a question is flashed on the screen, you have 5 seconds to think of an answer, and then you can record yourself for no longer than 60 seconds per question. Then, I had a twenty-minute time limit to answer some basic personality and aptitude questions in short-response format. Last, there was a multiple choice test, sort of like an IQ test. About one week later, there was another module where you watched the head of the company give a talk, and then had to synthesize some brief responses to the content (again, there was a time limit).
