The number you see in the middle of the doughnut pie chart is the simple average of these scores. If you hover over the various sections of the donut, you will see the % breakdown of each score given.

The percentile score in the title is calculated across the entire Company Database and uses an adjusted score based on Bayesian Estimates (to account for companies that have few interview insights). Simply put, as a company gets more reviews, the confidence of a "true score" increases so it is pulled closer to its simple average and away from the average of the entire dataset.

Interview Questions

There was nothing super technical or any case questions that were asked. The interviewer asked me what a V look up is and what the function of it is. I think he did the same for Index Match. Apart from that, no tech.

Nothing super difficult except when I mentioned I know how forecasting works: Interviewer asked a detailed explanation of my thoughts on forecasting and everything I knew about it.

"Explain everything you know about forecasting and how it is done and if you have ever done anything related"
