    Junior Data Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bothell, WA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Allstate Northern Ireland (Bothell, WA (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I passed a screening interview and technical interview over the phone first. In my phone interview, there were a few pseudo code questions and a case study. At the on-site interview, there were 4 interviews plus lunch: behavioral, a technical presentation (by me, prepared beforehand), lunch, code, and case study. I think my favorite part of the interview was the case study - they were really interested in if I can think and use logic to process information, not if I was the most technical, code-wise person ever. For the on-site case study (1 hour segment), I was given a set of data and asked how I could use it to get relevant data to insurance policies, how to give a summary of this data, etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Allstate Northern Ireland (Belfast, Northern Ireland) in August 2016.

    Interview

    First was to attend an assessment and teams were made up of all the applicants. We were tasked with coming up with an app idea. A supervisor was assigned to each group and evaluated each member of the team during the process, mainly focusing on team skills and how well you put forward your ideas or worked with other people.

    After that, if you passed the assessment I was called for an interview that lasted about an hour with a member of Recruitment staff and a member of staff with Technical background

    After that I was asked to attend an individual assessment in which paired programming skills were tested. I had already received confirmation of being offered a job, this part was just to filter successful applicants into their best fitted technical areas

    Interview Questions

    • Basic competency questions, as well questions regarding software development cycle   Answer Question
