    Vice President Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wakefield, MA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Epsilon (Wakefield, MA (US)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    good intro by the HR person, however, the rest of the team seemed uninterested and disengaged in the overall process. After the interviews were completed there was no followup even though the HR person promised to get back either directly or through the recruiter within three days. Seemed that the company is not organized well in terms of what they are really looking for.

    Creative Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Epsilon (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was as simple as having a conversation about advertising and the future of agencies. I was very surprised by the creative director to approach the interview with interest on the different perspectives on starting a project in collaboration with the different teams. In my opinion this should be the exact way to get to know a future candidate and start forgetting the recruiters old fashioned system.

    Associate Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irving, TX (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Epsilon (Irving, TX (US)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very thorough, and enjoyable. I met the recruiter at my college career fair. My resume was approved for the first round for an on-campus interview. Prior to the interview I took part of a Webex that explained into further detail what Epsilon was and the type of work they did. The on-campus interview took place the next day, and it was very laid back and conversational. I was contacted by a recruiter the following week for the second and final round, which would take place 2-3 weeks later. The final round was very intensive, but understandable how in-depth it was. Along with myself was 2 other candidates. We got a tour of the facility, then talked to employees that were in the New Grad Program right now. We then got split up into different rooms, and had the 5 interviewers rotate between us. The process overall took 2.5 hours. Everyone was very kind and courteous throughout the whole process. For anyone going through the process, do not be nervous if you do not have SQL or software background. They are more concerned if you are a good fit for the company.

    Very straightforward - but a long time ago. I've been with the company for more than six years. This is not an unusual tenure - there are plenty of people who have been around awhile. They like it.

    Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Epsilon (Wakefield, MA (US)).

    Interview

    Had a phone screen and was then called in to interview in person with 3 members. I was being considered for 2 different positions which were closely related but Epsilon seemed focused on talking about the less senior role. I heard nothing from Epsilon for over a month when they contacted me again to come in and meet with 3 more people. I had to ask which role I was being considered for. Apparently after my first round of interviews, my background was reviewed with a larger group and they now wanted me to talk to a totally different group. It was very frustrating but I really enjoyed talking with the hiring manager and thought things went well. However, the hiring manager's supervisor had the final say and at the end of my interview, he threw out a brain teaser that he expected me to answer. I know that this is an interview tool to see how well you think on your feet, think outside the box, etc. but after 3 hours of interviewing, my brain was fried. I was told I could think about it and email him with an answer when my initial responses were incorrect. I did think of an answer on my way home but at that point, I wasn't that interested in the job enough to respond back. It's now been over a month since that second interview and the company hasn't even bothered to inform me that I'm no longer being considered. I find that really rude considering I invested 6 hours to onsite interviews with them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Epsilon.

    Interview

    Two rounds - pretty basic Java OOP Principles and classes. Both were phone screens. Also had a phone call with the HR too talking about the basic recruiting process, pay, and other benefits. Was offered an offer at Boston office as a software developer intern. The work culture was good and the interview process was very easy and not that hard to crack if you are good with the basic coding principles.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Epsilon.

    Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Epsilon (Cincinnati, OH (US)).

    Interview

    Recruiter with the company called pretty fast and setup a technical screening. Technical screening was fairly straightforward, but setup in a way that if you missed a question on a topic, they moved on to the next topic. This is fairly traditional, but the interviewer would audibly sigh when you wouldn't state all the possible answers or you don't know a topic. You have my resume, why would you sigh when you ask me about something I don't have experience with? There were also several topics which were not in the job posting, which I also did not have on my resume. Overall, one of the more unprofessional interviews I've been involved with.
