    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hearst (United States) in Oct 2020


    I'd say this was an overwhelmingly negative experience. The process started with me applying online, and a recruiter contacting me via LinkedIn two days later. The process started poorly with the recruiter calling me the wrong name in the email (appeared to be a copy-paste email). After it was clarified that I was the correct person, I had a phone call with the recruiter during which I discussed my background with SQL, along with why I want to work in the newspaper industry.

    The recruiter mentioned that the company is trying to fill the position quickly (two-three weeks), which reflected poorly on them as the process dragged over the next month(s).

    Four days later, I was scheduled to talk with the Hiring Manager. The manager seemed very disinterested during the call, and started off with "So... tell me your story". After that, I was asked questions about my programming background, given some time to ask questions, and the call was finished in less than a half-hour. Here, it was mentioned that the next stage would be a technical interview focusing on data manipulation skills (SQL/Python (Pandas)).

    After this point, I sent a follow-up thank-you email to the manager (to no reply), and waited. After a week passed (three weeks in total), I contacted the recruiter as to whether or not they intend to keep their hiring timeline (two weeks). I was told that the offers for the next round of interviews would be set up that week, and I'd be kept in the loop. This was during the US presidential election, and the recruiter used the election as the reason they were busy.

    Overall, I never received an update on the position I interviewed for, even though the recruiter strung me along. I'd just say that this is a large company, and you should expect them to act like one when it comes to hiring - Not caring about their applicants, stringing them along, and having an unorganized hiring structure. Overall, nothing new, but it's a shame Hearst aligns themselves like this.

    What is your background with SQL?
