    Business Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Vistage International in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a placement agency for a full-time position at Vistage. Immediately I was scheduled a phone interview. I asked about the phone interview logistics and was told I would be called by the hiring manager. Scheduled 30 mins I was called ~ 15 minutes late and ended on-time. There was two people on the call but only one introduced herself. There were no introductions and the call started awkward. When I showed interest of the unique service line, I got crickets.

    Sales Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Vistage International in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was drawn out with different people throughout 40 days giving the impression there would be an offer after 5 interviews. The last interview was with the Chief of HR which I've never heard of a title. That should have said something with about his ego. My impression after that interview as that I did not want to work for this company since the head of HR said that he didn't have to like an employee. I disagree and think that you do have to like the people you work with. Do your research before wasting your time.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Vistage International in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very straight forward phone interview...the usual questions. Followed up with thank you notes and got the standard decline email from HR. No personal attention or effort at all.

    Sales Management Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Vistage International in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of phone and in-person interviews and an "entrepreneurial survey" or personality test. This test is administered by a company called Objective Management Group and it's very vague. I've taken many of these tests before and have had very favorable results. This test was somewhat difficult to answer, the questions are vary vaguely worded. If you go to OMG's site, it will give you a lot of tips to help you pass the test, but I chose to take it without that kind of advantage. I wish I had read the tips, as the test is very strangely structured and, I personally believe, a lot of bunk.

    I tend to think that the hiring manager relies too heavily on these test results because he may not have the confidence in his own perceptions to make hiring decisions. The hiring manager isn't from a sales background. The interview was pleasant and interesting, but the company's reliance on these test results is way too significant.

    I think it was blessing in disguise not to be hired. While waiting for my in-person interview, I saw several employees. No one was smiling, most had their jaws clenched or were looking down with long faces while walking around the office.
