I got a call from Talent Acquisition Team.

They give me an overview about the company & about my role & responsibilities

Interview Process:

It took around 5-6 weeks & I gone through 5 technical interviews , 4 telephonic & 1 was face to face.

Telephonic round covers your basic Knowledge on your domain.Mine was for a Data Scientist,so they asked about Data Models & Extraction Techniques.Make sure to go through SQL.

Most questions were from my domain.

Face to Face was the most interesting & challenging one.They gave me a Complex Problem & asked me to design a Proof of Concept(POC) on it.
It was a good healthy discussion on various real World Problems of Data Mining.The entire discussion was around an hour.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in November 2011.

Interview Details Written test consisting of 10 questions (reverse linked list,bits set in a byte,least common ancestor,some db and caching design). One coding test on the computer .Three face to face rounds . I think they have pretty much standard interview process.Interviewers come prepared with those questions and if you answer them correctly then you are done. I'm saying this because they were asking about different software development life cycles ,architectural patterns etc which most of the people don't use in their day to day work. This is irrespective of the experience. Would not suggest an experienced guy with 5+ years to attend . They don't have a big setup , so growth would be stagnant. Most of the people seem to be recent college grads.

Interview Question – reverse a linked list , surprisingly every interviewer is interested in this silly question   Answer Question
