    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at LookSmart (San Francisco, CA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was surprisingly easy. I was asked what I knew but not asked to demonstrate it. I was then called in for a second interview almost a month later. This centered more upon my interests than my skill set. I think it was so easy because I was replacing an intern.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I really wanted the job so I took it at the salary offered.
