    Lead Data Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at dunnhumby (Cincinnati, OH (US)).

    Interview

    Had an initial phone screen and was asked to come in on short notice the very next day. I had no problem with that and accommodated. The first in person interview was with a department head followed by another interview with the hiring manager and another associate. After those interviewers the recruiter said I will hear back in 2 weeks. About after 2.5 weeks I followed up to find out the status. Never got a reply back! Never even got a rejection call or email either....just nothing. Had to see the position was taken down to finally get some closure that I did not get the job. That shows a definite lack in professionalism in my opinion. They promote work hard play hard but I guess that comes at the expense of courtesy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at dunnhumby (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview. The questions were not that difficult and I was asked to come in for an in person interview. The interview as broken up into three 45 minute sections. One section was just like a normal interview. The remaining sections were for a case study. We had 45 minutes to prepare the given case study and then 45 minutes to present it. This was the most difficult past of the interview. I wasn't sure if the responses I was giving were the ones they were looking for and the person that was conducting the interview didn't have much to say.

Final interview involved a 45 min case study, 45 minute group interview, and a standard 45 minute one on one interview. They do a good job of paying for your travel expenses.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at dunnhumby (Cincinnati, OH (US)).

    Interview

    I was contacted by someone in the project management group for a phone interview. I was asked to quickly run through my previous experience and describe the role, challenges, deliverables, etc.

    Everything seemed fine until I was abruptly interrupted toward the end. The only way I can accurately describe what happened next would be to say I was "dressed down". At this point it became clear that the woman I was speaking to never had any intention of hiring me and was having a very bad day. She proceeded to tell me all the reasons I was not a good fit for the role and actually got pretty personal making several remarks that explained to me how she didn't think I was a good IT employee in general. This was very surprising, especially since I had been in a much larger role at a fortune 5 company for the past 11 years.

    Needless to say, there was no offer. If there was an offer of employment, I would have promptly declined it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at dunnhumby (Cincinnati, OH (US)).

    Interview

    I had to take an assessment after having my resume accepted. It was pretty hard, but I managed to pass. Questions centered around reading charts/graphs and doing calculations. I didn't hear back for a month or so, but eventually did.

    After that, it was very quick process. I got notified of a video interview, was scheduled 2 days later, got notified of the on-site that same night, and then flew to the office about 5 days later.

    The video interview was part behavioral, part mini-case. The mini-case asked me to walk through my thought processes when starting a company. Other questions included "What would you do if you had 48-hour access to a grocery store's database.

    A lot of the questions focused on what you would do with data containing "any information you'd find on a grocery receipt."

    The on-site interview consisted of four 45-minute segments. 45 minutes for an interview very similar to the video. 45 minutes to prepare a presentation of a case. 45 minutes to present the case, and 45 minutes behavioral interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The main case during the super day was a presentation. I was given 45 minutes to look at the case (design a method for evaluating the success of the launch of a given product). Then I had 45 minutes to present the case to an interviewer. It wasn't particularly hard, but was just different.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at dunnhumby (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I initially applied for the position online, and was quickly informed that I had passed their initial screen. The next step was a pair of reasoning tests that were not especially difficult; nonetheless, I recommend taking the practice tests first, to familiarize yourself with them. If you don't work fast, time pressure could be a concern. The next step after the reasoning tests was a phone interview. It focused on getting a glimpse of both your personality and your ability to think through problems, so be prepared for both types of questions. The last step was an on-site interview in Cincinnati that involved two interviews that were a combination of case and behavior interviews as well as a case presentation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at dunnhumby (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    It was a two interview process. The first interview was done over the phone and went over my classwork and my experience outside classwork. Did not ask too many behavioral based questions. Then after the first interview, they invited us to a half-day on-site. We were first given a couple of group assessments. Then they broke us up and gave each of us a problem. We were given around 20 minutes to solve the problem and answer the questions. Then two interviewers went over the answers and our processes with us. The behavior based questions came after that. We then were provided lunch and had a Q&A with two employees who gave us a tour.

    If you pass the phone interview,you are invited to get a face to face interview in the company building, You get to meet at least 4 people, including the colleagues you are going to work with and the directors/managers you are going to report. Very friendly people. Prepare to explain all the work you mentioned in your resume.

    Intern Data Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at dunnhumby (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The entire hiring process is really fast. Applied online, and got an email the very next day asking me to take an assessment test. The test had 2 parts - basic numerical problems and logical reasoning. The actual questions were quite easy, but the difficult part was time management. Don't linger on any question for too long. A week later, got contacted by a recruiter and arranged a phone interview in 10 days. In the phone interview, they mainly asked questions about past experiences and technical skills, also a few easy behavioral questions, like "tell me a time you have to push hard for your opinion", "give me three words how your team members describe you". A week later, the recruiter contacted me again to schedule an on site interview at their Cincinnati HQ, which consisted a dinner with recent graduate employees the night before, two 45 mins 1-to-1 interview, and a case study. I had 45 mins preparing for the case study, and 45 mins presenting it to an interviewer in informal conversations. 2 days after onsite, got a call offering the position.
