principal scientist interview questions shared by candidates
I was asked to lead a conference call with an external academic expert, to design a 'gamified' approach to the Walmart smartphone app, to structure and moderate a brainstorming session with several teams, to design a number of prototyping/testing programs, and asked many many questions. Remember, this all took place over one 9.5 hour session and another 5-day session!
I cannot remember the specifics of the questions. They were all related to my skills in mathematical modeling, how I approach problems generally, how I work at my job, how I prefer to work, what kinds of projects I have worked on in the past, what I might have done differently, and things of similar note. I had a multitude of questions for the five interviewers, which I think is what impressed them the most. They liked the kind of questions I was asking, the follow-ups, and I think they liked the enthusiasm I expressed for the position.
