    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PubMatic.

    Interview

    Applied online and recruiter called for initial phone screen. A week later, technical interview with hiring manager was set up.

    Poor communication on what was to be expected for technical interview. They said there will be coding exercise, but there was no coding exercise. This was one of the most exhausting/frustrating interviews I have been in. Seemed like the interviewer had not read through my resume beforehand.
    For the first 10-15 mins, he spent time asking about my work status in the country and why I was working while I was still studying. (I had several internships listed on my resume). After this, he asked me to explain the ML projects on my resume in detail. Most of the projects I had were NLP, which was not his area of interest and he kept asking me to repeat what the project was about. He then asked me to explain a non-NLP project and asked to describe the algorithm in detail. (It was a complex algorithm, and I failed to remember the specifics.)

    By this point I had already mentally checked out of the interview, and knew this role/company was not a good fit for me. Got a phone call from recruiter the next day saying I will not be moving forward in the process. This is the first time I have been relieved to hear that.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Applied online and someone from HR reached out the next day we scheduled some time to talk on the phone. They never called me at the scheduled time. After following up multiple times asking if they wanted to reschedule, I received an automated message that they were moving forward with other candidates. Very unprofessional and a complete waste of time.

    Customer Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at PubMatic in August 2020.

    Interview

    After applying, I scheduled a day and time for the phone screening with the HR woman. She called me a full day earlier and I thought maybe I messed up my schedule, but I didn't. After taking the call, I emailed her asking to speak on the actual appointed time the next day. She said yes. The next day she still called 25 minutes early, I called back 5 minutes late, left a voicemail. 40 minutes later I sent an email asking if she was still free to chat that day. She never answered. I got an automated email saying they were moving forward with other candidates. I never got a chance to properly prepare to speak with her. And she did not do her job properly. So unprofessional and unhelpful for their company, as I could've been a great member of the team.

    How hard is it to stick to the scheduled day and time?

    Customer Success Operations Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PubMatic in August 2020.

    Interview

    The HR person emailed me asking to set up a time to talk on the phone. She missed the specified time and did not get back to me for weeks.
    She eventually emailed me back and we then spoke on the phone. I then spoke with the hiring manager. After that, I had to do an excel test and a panel interview with the hiring manager and his boss. I then interviewed with a Customer Success Manager. Finally, I interviewed with two higher-ups running the Customer success team at separate times. This whole process took over three weeks.
    After all of that, I did not get a response for over a week. So when I emailed HR about the next steps, I received an automated email saying I would not be getting the job. This was totally unprofessional. After the long interview process, at least have the common decency to respond to my email personally instead of just sending out an automated reply.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PubMatic.

    Interview

    Very speedy process from resume submission to final interview round. Process maybe took about 2 weeks total, which is amazingly fast. The recruiting team was transparent and communicative throughout each round. For the in-person round, the recruiters were professional and friendly, which made my decision to join even easier since I know that future teammates will get the same great treatment. The team I was interviewing for was also professional and had great talent/experience, which again, made my decision to join a lot easier.
