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

Had to describe our passions for the initial screening. This was somewhat difficult, as we only had 800 characters to fully give our explanation. I don't know if you've ever had to explicitly write out the areas of your life in which you are passionate, but 800 characters is considerably too small. In fact, this text I'm writing is approximately 500 characters. Do you think you could describe your passions in this limited format? While it is difficult, I found the challenge rewarding and think it pushed me.
