    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marshall Wace North America.

    Interview

    Rude, asked questions about sensitive information including GPA, and lack of proper time arrangement.
    I received a phone interview for the first round and the interviewer was about 20minutes late. He didn’t apologize and went directly to the so-called tech questions, but basically brain teasers. He asked about some sensitive questions like GPA, hmmm, the company must have a pretty interesting culture I guess.
    Then I went on-site. Onsite was a data exploratory analysis project, cleaning and visualizing two time series data. I was informed it is a two hour project in the email. But I was interrupted after one hour because it is actually one hour project.
    Still no apologize, HR said “oh there must be some misunderstanding”
    This is so unprofessional and Hilariously rude
    Accept the offer if you are Stockholm syndrome
