Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Spring Venture Group.

Interview

The first portion of the interview process was a 30-45 minutes phone interview. The interview composed mostly of technical questions with little else. Topics included statistical theory, machine learning, SQL, and python. The second portion of the interview process involved completing a mini assignment. In my case, I was to create a classification model using the given set of data. The data set was (likely intentionally) very messy, requiring considerable cleaning and thoughtful decision making. I spent five hours putting this demo project together, and did not hear back. After one week, I reached out, and I was told the submission had not yet been reviewed. After two weeks, I reached out again, and I was told I would hear back early the following week. The following week, I received a pre-written email stating I was no longer a candidate. This generic email was likely the same sent to any applicant, regardless of whether they interviewed in any capacity or not, as no mention of the project was made. Given that I spent many hours assembling a demo project only to receive zero feedback and a generic template response, I emailed HR to express my disappointment. I was again ignored.

Interview Questions

  • Your goal is to build a model which will predict the "target" variable. Attached are two files: 1) one is for training and testing, and 2) the other is the holdout submission set. You should build the best model possible in order to maximize the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC AUC). ROC AUC should be your scoring parameter.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spring Venture Group in January 2018.

    Interview

    Completed a multiple question assignment on data analysis and cleanup. Phone screen with a manager included questions about workplace interactions and material to gauge my statistical knowledge. 2nd round interview with 3 members of the data team included more questions on stats, how I approach data analysis, and questions on work behavior and situations. Disappointed I didn't get the job, but the interview process was executed well. The recruiter and interviewers were respectful and excellent with keeping me updated.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spring Venture Group (Kansas City, KS) in December 2016.

    Interview

    There was a brief technical discussion. Followed by which I was given a data set to work on. I did a great job with the data set, I spent 2 days working on it. Later they rejected without even giving the feedback. Highly unprofessional of them to do so. The AUC was close to 0.9. The data cleaning and transformation took me a day.

    Interview Questions

    • Simple classification questions and walk through my resume. I was given data set to work on, AUC was the evaluation criteria.   1 Answer
