    I worked at Tabcorp full-time

    Pros

    Great intentions to drive flexible working environments, new leadership thinking and experimentation. Workplace culture is terrific and one of the best managers I've ever had. This is a gaming business and you can feel that by working there. They have done a good job of making work fun.

    Cons

    Some of the great ideas are not followed through to actually deliver great ROI. Leadership team don't seem as aligned or as involved as I'm used to.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to create a genuine performance culture, you need to be able to have the hard chats and make the hard decisions on under performers. Sometimes your delightful culture (which genuinely is a joy to work in) gets in the way of being commercially focussed and that can be a shame for your A-players.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Tabcorp (Sydney (Australia)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    First, a phone call from their hiring manager to set up a date for a phone interview. Then the interview itself in 5 days or so. Took around 45 minutes. It was essentially a phone test: they asked to solve a few probability problems (along the lines "given this and that, what is the probability of xxx"), then some machine learning questions, then some questions related to programming.

    Interview Questions

    • What is overfitting and how do you deal with it?   Answer Question
    • Suppose there's a round table in a room and you have to randomly sit 6 people around it. What is the probability that two specific persons will end up sitting next to one another?   Answer Question
    • Suppose that you flip a coin 10 times and observe that you got heads 7 times out of 10. What does it mean? If you suspect that the coin may be biased, how would you check that?   Answer Question
