    Principal Data Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NortonLifeLock (Tempe, AZ) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Muddled, disorganized interview process. Team members need alignment on interview process, training, and coordination. Generally, you are treated like an hourly wage applicant; just a number. It is obvious they do not put care into the applicant experience or care about their brand or image in the marketplace to potential employees. Clearly, there is not a lot of camaraderie on the team and they don't project a solid team atmosphere (a bunch of individuals working on separate projects).

    Interview Questions

    • Various low level questions about SQL, probability theory, Python. Practical application of knowledge - this is a business problem we had, how would you design a solution? etc.   2 Answers

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NortonLifeLock (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I had a mixed experience with the hiring process. Initially, the Recruiter was very engaged and responsive. They were flexible with scheduling a phone screen and later an interview with the hiring manager at a time that fit my schedule. They even sent reminders and answered my preliminary questions via email.

    The interviews went well, and the Recruiter was pretty open about the fact that my experience was more extensive than they were hoping for - essentially that they were concerned about being able to afford me. I was open about the fact that the role I'd be filling and Manager that I'd be working for were huge draws for me, so I was willing to consider a smaller salary. The Recruiter seemed excited to hear this, and also started planting seeds for other potential positions that better met my experience level.

    At the end of my conversation with the hiring manager, they informed me that I was in the top 2 for consideration. And that's the last I heard from them. I was really surprised that they didnt bother sending any kind of follow-up after 2 rounds of interviews. Definitely left a bad taste.
