    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at comScore (Reston, VA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter rescheduled a phone call with me but never got back to me. I sent follow-up emails to see if something went wrong and tried to continue the conversation but there was no reply at all.

    I specifically took a day off for the rescheduled phone screening. However, it turned out to be unpleasant experience. Seems like the recruiter is unprofessional and showed little respect to candidates. Time wasted...

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at comScore (Reston, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The Principal Technical Recruiter and HR team made sure everything was smooth and that the process was crystal clear. I was referred by an employee at comScore. The interview process started with the Principal Technical Recruiter asking a few questions relating to my background and skills. Later I was briefed on what the team excepts from a potential candidate. Then after a week I got a thumbs up and was asked to schedule for a phone screen interview. The interviewer was a Senior Software Engineer and the interview was on coding (Java). The question asked was to write a program to find if two given strings are Anagrams. There are multiple solutions and I came with the one that had best time complexity, then interviewer asked if I can do better on space complexity. After that a discussion followed on which of the solutions would be better under what circumstances. NOTE: This was coding intensive round and the code typed is expected to run with minimum errors. There was an option to choose from an IDE platform to code but I choose the non-IDE one. The interview lasted for 45-60 mins. The next day I got a reply from the Principal Technical Recruiter and was told that I did well and that the team wanted to schedule a face to face interview at their HQ's in Reston. The on-site interview had 5 technical rounds with 4 of them being on Algorithms, data structures and Big-Data and the other round was on Machine Learning. Questions were asked on linked-Lists, Trees, Stacks, Lists, Sets, Maps, MapReduce, data types (primitive, Wrapper and Box), Pig and other brain teasers. The team that interviewed me was great and very friendly but technical intense. Once the interview was done I was briefed of the next steps and told that a decision would be given in the next 3 days and they did send me out an offer letter on the third-day.

    Benefits: They offered more than what I asked for with all the benefits, also the company sponsors H1B which is great. They try their best to give any other allowances that a candidate needs.

    TIP: Be prepared. They won't ask anything that is not on the job description or that isn't on your resume.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at comScore (Reston, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, spoke to HR first followed by technical phone round with senior person in department. I got a thumbs-up to proceed to on-site but in between the role changed to add some additional requirements which I did not have too much exposure to. Instead of on-site, they wished to do a 3 hour Skype session with Collabedit. Interviewers were helpful and friendly and made me feel comfortable, but the internet connection on their end was terrible, I had to ask the interviewers to repeat every question as I barely made out what they said (which am sure would annoy anyone inside). Also a lot of questions were asked on technologies I had no experience with/not listed on my resume
    HR was helpful throughout the process. I got reject the next day after the interview as the new skills required for the job, opposed to the posting, weren't a good match to mine overall.

    Interview Questions

    • Given two tables, write some SQL queries (joins, nested select)
      Simple data structure and algorithms, OOP concepts, questions on ASP.NET and JS

    Associate Data Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at comScore (Reston, VA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Consisted of mostly behavioral interviews. I couldn't tell if it was because of my strong technical background or if the job required little technical experience, but the interviewers asked me primarily surface level questions. There was no real test of whether or not the information on my resume was accurate or if I had the chops to compete in the workplace. Either way, the interviewers were incredibly nice and motivated and my interview experience was absolutely wonderful overall.
