    Engagement Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aetion.

    Interview

    Initial outreach from a recruiter/HR that was approximately 30 minutes. Within a week or so was scheduled to interview with the hiring manager. I was advised that that I would have another interview with one more resource on the team within a week. After that I heard no follow up and had to reach out to the recruiter to obtain any update (good or bad). The communication and interview/hiring process is clearly disorganized. I firmly believe your experience in the hiring/interview process depicts a lot to what the company/work experience would be like.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview questions pertained to the role and comparison to what experience I had that was relatable. Overall the discussions I did have were relevant and helped me understand the expectations more.   Answer Question

    Scientific Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aetion in September 2020.

    Interview

    I had a 30 min phone screen with a recruiter, then a 30 minute Zoom call with a Senior Scientist, followed by a take-home assignment, and finally four 30 min conversations with members of the Science team. The interview questions were very fair and straightforward, mostly behavioral questions and questions about my background. The take-home assignment was challenging but didn't require background knowledge, and was designed to give a sense of some of the day to day tasks in the role. The entire process moved along quickly and the recruiter was very responsive.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Aetion (New York, NY (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    The overall interview process was streamlined and positive! The process took around 3 weeks and first entailed an initial recruiter phone screen. This was followed by an interview with a data scientist and then a subsequent series of interviews with multiple team members. All of the interviewers were friendly and passionate about the work they do, which allowed for really good conversations. HR was also highly responsive throughout the whole process.

    Software Engineer Senior Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aetion (New York, NY (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    The first round was with the recruiter which was okay except he was using a VOIP to talk to me on the phone since we were long distance. The quality of the call was not good and I had a difficult time hearing him.

    The next round, HR sent me a sheet on what concepts I may be asked and recommended tests4geeks.com. I go to the website and you have to pay for questions so I didn't use it. The sheet says that the interview "almost always include an element of live coding" so I'm thinking that it will be a coding interview platform that the interview and myself will see. So I studied for 4 days all these coding questions and then on the day of the interview. It was just a video conference interview and the Senior Engineer is literally entering code in the chat box, which was unformatted and extremely hard to read. It didn't seem like he had a question prepared, he just made up a question on the spot.

    The technical questions he asked were fair but it's a little hard to explain an optimized solution without a text editor of some sort. I was just disappointed that the sheet given from HR isn't exactly what you will be experiencing in the technical interview.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Aetion.

    Interview

    Short phone screen, then longer phone interview followed by a take home assessment which took a few hours. On site interviews with seven team members after that, only to be told at the end of this process that they'd decided to no longer hire for the position at all. Very unprofessional to end the process with a short phone call and be left with an afterthought of "maybe we'll think of you next quarter".

    Devops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Aetion in May 2019.

    Interview

    Applied Online, immediately got first HR call, and after initial screening, a video call was arranged.

    At first technical round - no show from technical interviewer.

    Then I had to reach out to the HR and interviewer, I was expecting them to come up but they were not good enough. Second video call technical interview, went well.

    Second round - Coding assessment, one week time was given to complete, completed and submitted working code. Got rejection after 2 weeks.

    Overall experience - Bad, the process took more than one and half month and I would have not joined the company even I would have got offer. I am glad that they rejected me.
