    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    It started with some Utterly useless technical test - programming. I think they are just trying to act smart which probably they are not as the test is for software engineer and not a data scientist.
    Don't waste your time applying here.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with HR, then a phone interview with the Hiring Manager. During that time, I was verbally received a case study. I was used a week to prepare the case study in PPT (essentially a proposal/pitch). Then after multiple attempts to schedule the case presentation, I finally presented the case study to a different colleague (who had not secured a conference room and had to switch rooms while I presented on video). After a month, I still have not heard back on the results of my case (not even an automated decline).

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics.

    Interview

    The process started through a recruiter who had me take an online coding test consisting of SAS and SQL questions. The next step was two phone interviews, one with a hiring manager and the other was a technical interview with a member of their analytics team. Both interviewers were respectful and helpful, though the technical interviewer seemed to have questions that were not very relevant to the position. Finally there were two more phone interviews, that were both fairly helpful and respectful.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you create a year-to-date column for sales using SQL joins?   Answer Question

    Senior Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics (San Francisco, CA (US)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter to apply for the Senior Data Scientist role in the San Francisco Bay area. The interview consisted of HR screen followed by a Hackerrank test that lasted an hour. After the test, I spoke to one of their Principal Data Scientists who was ncie and professional during the interview, asking me details about my work and a few other technical questions. I was then told that there will be another technical screen with their Lead Data Scientist in New Jersey.

    This is when the whole process derailed. Their Lead Data Scientist was 10+ minutes late for the interview and was often combative during the call. He would ask me open-ended technical questions and while I tried to answer those, he would interrupt me by saying things like 'don't waste my time' or 'I don't want to listen to that'. I have interviewed with 7 different organizations during the month of December 2018 and this was the worst interview among all. Really left a bad impression about Fractal Analytics. Never seen such an unprofessional and rude interviewer. Says a lot about the work culture of the organization if this is how their team leads behave.

    I ended up getting 4 different job offers in December and accepted a position at 1.5 times the salary in Los Angeles which is much cheaper than the bay area.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics (New York, NY (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    It was a great experience. Had 4 rounds of discussion. 3 technical and 1 HR discussion. All of them were quite pleasant experience and at no point it felt that I was appearing for an interview. The overall coordination was also quite excellent with Rachna, she was pretty impressive while co ordinating the entire process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics.

    Interview

    OMG!!! I was insulted (implied that I was stupid ) and disrespected (my answers were constantly dismissed as wrong, although they were correct). The company is 85% Indian males. I am a white American female with a PhD. I do not think I should comment more. That was a horrible discriminatory experience!!! I declined to participate in the in the interview process further.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer asked about random forest and how it works. When I said that each decision tree in the forest considers a random subset of features, he disrespectfully interrupted me and told me that I am wrong. Then he scolded me for giving the "wrong" answer.   1 Answer

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fractal Analytics in August 2018.

    Interview

    The Interview Process was very quick and organized. I had around 4 rounds of interviews scheduled in around 4 days of time. The first Round was a technical screening of the Data Science/machine Learning concepts. Second round was a Business case study and Sql Screening. 3rd round had 2 Case studies (Business + Technical), 4th round was just behavioral and technical overview. It was really a good experience and the Interviews were really friendly and the process took around 10 days.
