Kabbage analyst interview
I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Delhi for Analyst role at Kabbage
Test HR Interview Puzzle Interview Behavioural Interview HR Interview
No. of Questions
- Section 1: Aptitute Test
The Aptitude Section included 2 sections, 1 Quantitative and 1 Data Interpretation. These were pretty straight-forward questions and if you have done a week's preparation for these, you would be able to ace it.
The test has individual cutoff for both sections so do keep it in mind while giving the test and these test copies are used by interviewers during the interview process and have an equal weightage as the interview round, so do your best in the test as well because it will help you at the end during your final evaluation.
- Question 1: Usual HR Questions along with some situational questions like what would you do in such a condition.
There were 2 people who were taking my interview, 1 Indian and 1 was probably from Atlanta Office of Kabbage. They were quite friendly throughout the interview and since I was doing great in the interview, they were also helping me throughout the interview.
The first round of interview is the most important and it gives confidence to us and also makes a huge impact upon the interviewer. So, if you have aced the first round of interview, then there are good chances of your selection.
There were some standard puzzles from standard books that we use. I knew them already and aced this round as well.
Feel confident and instead of directly giving out the answer show your thought process to the interviewer even if you are unable to figure out the right answer.
It was the shortest round that I had of just 10 minutes. The interviewer was asking some general questions from my CV.
It was a round just to check the behavior as the interviewer was a very experienced man. So, don't do anything stupid at this point.
There was again finally this one HR interview where some standard questions were asked like why Kabbage? why hire you? etc.
It was a pretty easy round and the overall evaluation I think constituted 20% from each interview round and 20% from test. So, keep your cool in this round as it is a decisive one.
- Puzzle Solving Capability
- Behavioural Skills
- Analytical Skills
Puzzle solving and behavioural part is most important, so do practice a lot on these.
Be cool, confident, do your homework about the company in advance as it would give you an extra edge over others and always take tests very seriously.
Motivation for applying
It is a very fast growing company. It has already established itself in more than 30 countries in a period of just 6 years and in india it is expanding itself. So, I always wanted to be a part of such a cool startup and more the profile suits me as well.
