I interviewed at AltaML

Interview

It was pretty well-structured. It took about 1.5 months in total with about almost two weeks between each phase. They sent email in each step. Their HR manager was very coperative.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AltaML (Toronto, ON) in Oct 2021

Interview

I was sent an email from the hiring manager with a scheduling app to pick my interview slot. The interview was not too difficult, had standard questions and seemed to go pretty well, in my opinion. The questions, however, felt like they were more meant for non-internship roles. After the interview, I followed up with the hiring manager with a thank you email but never received a reply. During the interview, she said that by the end-of-week I would receive feedback on whether or not I would move to the next round but heard nothing whatsoever. It would have been nice to have received a short email of some sort to understand what they were looking for and why I was not selected to move on.

I applied online. I interviewed at AltaML

Interview

Scheduled an interview with HR based on mutual availability. Also emailed her about the time slot I picked in the scheduling app just in case they didn't receive the automated email. But... the HR didn't show up and there was no follow-up. Do not waste your time with this company. Medium tenure on LinkedIn is 0.8 yrs. Not worth it.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at AltaML

Interview

A 60-minute online test through imocha, with very specific questions about statistics that had to be answered quickly. 15 minutes for each of the 2 multiple choice sections, with 10 questions in each section. Then 30 minutes for the programming section, with two programming questions. The time limit includes the time it takes to read both assignments carefully, type in the 50-or-so sample inputs for each assignment (you can't copy or paste), interpret their sometimes-vague instructions, and compose a solution that only uses the libraries available.

Interview Questions
  • Bagging: A) can be parallel B) is suitable for models with high variance and low bias C) can reduce overfitting D) all of the above

Interview

Excellent experience. The entire process was handled very well. HR followed up after the interview(s) for post/exit impressions. I felt and was respected at every step. How wonderful if every potential employer treated candidates this well and this way. It speaks to how well managed AltaML is as an organization.

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at AltaML

Interview

The interview is at least a two to three stage process. It is rigorous and time bound. At the first, there is a interview with basic questions about the role, previous experiences that fit the role. This is followed by the creation of a presentation based on an assignment. This is followed by a presentation interview where the assignment presentation has to be explained. This is followed by another interview at the executive level, where fit with the company is determined.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AltaML (Toronto, ON) in Feb 2020

Interview

The interview process started with a phone screen interview by a current data science lead, who asked bunch of simple ML questions around cross validation, bias variance trade off etc. I was not contacted by any Human resource staff for the position. Post the screening round, I was handed over a simple take home assignment to solve and I gave my best attempt to submit the solution in less than 4 days and including some of the best models and with best performance, However, I never received any feedback/appreciation for the submission. After couple of weeks, the same data science lead sent me a mail stating they are not moving forward with my candidacy. I believe its an unprofessional approach to not include a Hr professional in the recruitment, The lady who conduced my interview seemed to have less knowledge and industry experience than myself and I strongly suspect the take home assignment was nothing more than a fishing effort to collect a set of code references from a number of candidates.
