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

Meet their recruiter on Campus (Penn State University), received an email from her to month later asking me if I am still interested in this position. I had an interview on a phone for 15 minutes. Was asked general questions about my Qualifications and knowledge of Excel, plus previous experience and school activities. After our conversation I send her a follow up email with my Letters of Recommendation and received an official offer 1 week after.

Interview Questions

All of them were pretty easy, like "How familiar are you with Excel". The only hard thing for me was- the email was absolutely spontaneous and unexpected, so I had literally 15 minutes to prepare for the interview and had almost no knowledge about the company.
