    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies.

    Received an email, did a behavioral interview and then a technical interview. Worker basically said she didn't like working there during the interview. The technical interview was over the phone, where they gave very basic programming questions but struggled to communicate the actual problem.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Standard enough process. Initial phone screen followed by phone technical interview. The technical interview wasn't easy, and I expect they only take the best. Should have prepared a bit more probably

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies.

    Interview

    Not sure how the recruiter got my name, but received an email. Set up a ~45 minute behavioral phone interview, which led to a fairly straitforward 1 hour 15 minute online coding challenge.

    That led to an onsite interview, which was three technical interviews in the morning, a presentation called Palantir 101, and then a tour of the facility. It was a little odd - one of the other people interviewing was told to leave after the presentation, while the rest of us got the tour, and then were told to leave.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies in July 2017.

    Interview

    I began the process of interviewing for a Campus programs role. Then they filled it, and asked me if I was interested in interviewing for a RC in Palo Alto so I did. Then they filled it. Finally, I was asked if I wanted to interview the RC role in New York and they invited me onsite for the four interviews! Although, I didn't get the position my recruiter was amazing and I love everything Palantir stands for. They just wanted a little bit more experience for them to hire me!
