    Summer Interview

    Interview

    I had a really bad experience interviewing with Oriental Trading. I got a phone call from HR and then emailed her to set up a time to chat. We then
    scheduled a time and date to have a phone call. I waited by the phone for half an hour at the time for the phone call to come. It didn’t come so I called her and it went to voicemail and I left a message for her. She never got back to me and a few weeks later, I got a generic automated rejection letter. Very unprofessional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Oriental Trading Company (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews. The first phone interview was to gauge my general experience and expertise. The second interview was completely ridiculous.

    The second interview consisted of two interviewers asking me questions about data science. Neither of them spoke much English and they both had accents so thick that I couldn't understand either of them through the phone.

    They asked several questions about data merging and Machine Learning. Several of these questions were fine, but several of them didn't make any sense. Seriously, several of the questions literally didn't make sense from a software or statistics perspective.

    I literally gave up after fifteen minutes. The questions didn't make sense and I could barely understand the interviewers. I know this might make me sound like a jerk, but it was one of the worst interviewing experiences of my life.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Oriental Trading Company in June 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was overall, about a month long. I had a phone interview and had to come in 3 separate times. After waiting for a week after the last interview, they didn't even have the decency to call me. I got a very generic email saying they weren't interested in hiring me. 3 in person interviews seemed very unnecessary.
