    First round, interviewed by asking your background. If your background matches, they may send you some coding quizzes. After you pass the code quizzes, the second round interview is mostly focused on your behavior.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at The NPD Group.

    Interview

    A disorganized caricature of a real DS interview.

    Started with a fairly normal phone screen with HR. I was contacted the next day and asked to do a fairly normal take-home DS test which took about 4 hours.

     About a week later, I was contacted and told that I'd done well on the test. We schduled an interview with the hiring manager. It was mostly behavioral, although he did ask me about how I would think through a particular problem. The first red flag was the description of the problem. It was clearly an ongoing issue with a client. He tried to sanitize it on the fly and ended up giving almost no detail. Under questioning, he also changed details on the fly. Disorganized but we got through it. I also strongly got the impression that they want a data analyst not a scientist.

    I was contacted about. a week later and asked to interview with management at the next level up. I showed up on Zoom in a button-down and tie. My interviewer appeared in a dirty hoodie in a dark room. Quickly got over THAT shock. Much more stringent behavioral questioning.

    Then - radio silence. Follow-ups with people who warmly gave me their info unprompted went unanswered. No courtesy at all to follow up with a candidate 3 interviews in (well, 2 + a phone screen).

    They don't know the difference between a data analyst and a data scientist. They're also absolutely willing to waste as much of your time as you'll give them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at The NPD Group.

    Interview

    Phone Screen, Interview with Hiring Manager over the phone, Interview in Person with the team. I had to decline further consideration due to extremely poor communication from all departments and them being unable to respond to updates. Recruiter and manager didn't respond for nearly 3 months after weekly follow-ups. Glad I missed out on this opportunity.

    Interview

    Good interview! The questions were straight-forward and every person I interacted with were nice. They wanted to know you as a person rather than having the 'right answers'. I wouldn't mind having to interview again.
