Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Tyco.

Interview Details – I was brought in by a recruiter for a position other than for the one i was hired. The interview process i feel is really dependent on the interviewer. One interview was very open, friendly and engaging; very much just getting to know you. The next was filled with technical and even trick questions.

Interview Question – The technical questions all revolved around my understanding of Excel.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiating was required. I was moving from out of state and had 2 other offers on the table for similar positions and accepted the highest.
