    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Hastings Direct (London, England) in Jul 2021


    Positive experience overall. Relatively quick response from the recruitment team following submission of application. From the initial interview, the process felt streamlined, with good communication from the recruitment team. Had the opportunity to speak to hiring/line manager, data scientists and team lead during the process.

    3 interview stages. First - competency based with some technical questions. Second - take home assignment of machine learning style problem. Presentation of solution, followed by technical questions. Third - interview with team lead, included technical and competency based questions.
