    Data Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    The process was so UNPROFESSIONAL! I applied online, and received an email from HR asking about my availability for a phone interview later this week, I replied to them about three hours later and did not hear anything from them. On the next day I sent an email again to check if the interview was scheduled or not, again, I did not hear anything from HR. During the weekend I received an email said that I was rejected. If the process just ended here then it was all fine. But NO!!!! On next week HR asked me again if I still have time for an interview and I replied to him with my time slots. I could not believe the same thing happened!! They did not reply to me one more time!!!!! Listen, it is okay for you to reject me, but it is definitely not professional to insult me!

    EA Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Travelport (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I applies on line, received an email from HR for times for a brief call. After I was "interrogated" by a young woman over the phone, she sent me a email with dates/times to come into the office for an interview. After checking in to the Atlanta office, I waited for about 15 minutes past the original appointment time, then I was approached by a "cleaning woman" type dressed person carrying her open lap-top. She placed it down on the conference table and said she was "so busy" she needed to continue to monitor her work. Another young girl came in late - EA for HR, and was more interested in her cell phone than asking / paying attention to the interview. They both were very unprofessional and clueless. She even had to jump out of the interview early to take a call from her cell. REALLY girls HR Recruiter should have rescheduled or had someone - more professional - conducting the interview. I think they were intimidated that I was over qualified in every way!!! SAD --Looser working group. I did, however, received an outstanding offer shortly thereafter from a better company. BEWARE of the support staff!

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Travelport (Gaithersburg, MD) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is pretty straight forward. I applied online and a recruiter connected with me and asked me some general questions about my experience, my projects etc. Later, my profile is shared with hiring manager and a couple of days later a phone interview is being scheduled.

    Phone interview went through a lot of questions, testing my expertise and knowledge proficiency in data science and machine learning fundamental concepts. I think its fair to say the screen call was demanding and fast paced. In addition, the interviewer asked me about any projects that I have done related to data science and speak about them.

    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Travelport.

    Interview

    I was contacted by email from someone in HR. The email essentially said we reviewed your resume and want to schedule a 30-45 minute call with you next week. Let us know what works for you. In the meantime, please complete this preliminary questionnaire before our call if possible.

    I completed the questionnaire promptly and returned it. Then I get another email saying "I am in a time crunch to get interviews scheduled for this role. I have added some additional questions to the original questionnaire. Would you mind filling in the remaining details?
    If so; I can then forward your information on and plan to coordinate you interview for early next week."

    As odd as this was coming over to me, I completed the additional questions promptly and returned them. After submitting the additional questions. I've yet to hear a word back from the HR person on if I was still getting scheduled for a phone call, or if they wanted me to kick rocks. Some sort of acknowledgement would've been nice and professional.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Travelport (Denver, CO) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I only met one person to interview with. It wasn't particularly technical. More of a casual conversation. At end of interview I asked what the next steps might be ... for example will I come in again to meet the team and interview further. Person told me no, the decision would be made from what he had to report. I thought this odd, I've never interviewed for a job by speaking with only one person. Another "oddity" ... I saw a few people walk by as I was interviewing. They all were Indian. I wondered what my chances were with so many Indians employed (I'm American). I've also seen some of their salary estimates, kinda low.

    A few days after the interview I contacted the HR person who originally setup the interview. I sent an email asking if they had any interest in hiring or had moved onto other candidates. I never received a reply. Finally, 2 weeks later, I received an auto-generated email telling me they weren't interested.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Travelport (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Brief interview with HR. FOUR additional interviews. The interviews were very easy. Just behavioral. Every interviewer asked the same questions. They lasted about 30-45 minutes. Every person represented the company well but could not give me additional information and I had to go through HR for all my other questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Travelport (Atlanta, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Very slow, months to have several interviews. Managers were late, disorganized, had no interest in interviewing, couldn't remember the two phone calls we already had, had no notes or questions. Still job not filled after 6 months. It was stated their Boss wanted them to get out of the weeds but they could not figure out how. I would say that Boss needs to have a hard look at those employees.
