    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SAS Institute.

    Interview

    Interview was done entirely online. Downloaded some software to answer some questions, no actual human interaction. In fact, I just watched a bunch of videos and answered them. Obviously did not pass the first round of interviews lol. A bit frustrating, as I waited quite a bit of time for them to send the link.

    Manager Data Analytics Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SAS Institute in December 2019.

    Interview

    I was emailed 3 scenario questions and asked what I would do and why. The phone interview was about a week later. Two people conducted the interview. It was a typical good cop - bad cop. One of the interviewers was a manager (potential co-worker) and the other a developer (potential team member). The manager barely allowed the developer time to ask questions. In her asking, she put my qualifications down as an intro to some of her questions. I tried to be detailed in my answers to offset her negativity toward me, but was cut off and told to keep it short. They asked too many questions for the hour given and I sincerely feel that it is not the best way to screen individuals. Sometimes the answers have reasons, the individual person is more than just a "yes" or a "no" and they were not interested. The manager is over-bearing.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the email questions was: You are asked to deliver two high profile projects that will exhaust your team's capacity, what do you do?
      The phone questions were set up with negativity, such as "I know you're not a manager, and have no experience with it, but...." and "I don't see you having a masters degree, or getting one soon, but...".   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at SAS Institute in October 2019.

    Interview

    I completed a Hirevue after two weeks of replying and it was just basic questions about my work style, past projects, and why I wanted to work for SAS? Then about three weeks later I was asked to complete a final video interview with a few members of the technology sector. It was a conference room with four people and it was going over more of my technical skills. I was told that they would get back to me within two weeks of my interview and after weeks of emailing them, my recruiter never replied back.
