    Data Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SpotHero (United States) in Sep 2020

    Interview

    Very stupid and unprofessional interview process. The interviewer just read a list of questions and expect you answer them. I don't think it matters if you answer them correctly or not. The HM has no idea about what kind of people he wants to hire. After the final round, they told me I didn't do well in the round before that, then what is the point of moving me forward to the last round? I would love it if they could stop before that, then I would not have to waste hours to answer those meaningless behavior questions.

    Don't waste your time in this company. That is definitely not an industry you want to get into during this challenging time. A lot of things are uncertain now, but one thing is curtain that no matter how good they optimize their pricing algorithm, fewer and fewer people are using the parking service, which is also the reason they are experiencing difficulties.

SpotHero's SVP of Strategy & Operations, Elan Mosbacher, describes how the company is bringing AI to transform the parking industry: 'Parking has been one of the later verticals within transportation to adopt [artificial intelligence]. As a consumer, if I go to the city, I want to know all of my parking options, how long it will take, and pricing—the more accurate, the better. As a parking operator, I want to make money and I want to use the latest, greatest technology to get there. SpotHero IQ is going to be the technology that helps make this all happen.'
