    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at ALTEN in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    They are a global consulting company seeking to branch out into technology companies in the Seattle area. As such, they're concurrently trying to sign up the actual consulting contracts while building a pipeline of people who could staff them. In other words, there is no real position open yet.

    Framed that way, the interview was primarily a get-to-know-each-other in their small executive suite in Bellevue. It was an enjoyable conversation with no real surprising questions. Given the uncertainty about their contract, there was no clear call-to-action at this time.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ALTEN.

    Interview Details

    First interview was at Alten and was good and I was made believed that there was an open position that fitted with my profile.
    Second interview was by phone by a guy who was all over the place and didn't had the patience to listen to my answers. Also asked question that were clearly in my CV which he clearly didn't read .....

    A week after the second interview I got a mail saying that currently there is no position that fitted my profile..... but they are still interested ... so if something opens up then they will contact me again..

    I had this experience twice in two years with Alten exactly the same

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at ALTEN.

    Interview Details

    Entretien d'embauche assez expéditif. On ne sent pas un réel besoin de l'interviewer de connaitre le candidat. On en ressort avec une sensation d'être juste un numéro X dans une longue file d'attente.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ALTEN.

    Interview Details

    Suite à l'envoi de CV pour un poste de business manager, un recruteur d'Alten m'a rapidement contacté. Après un entretien téléphonique j'ai été invité pour un entretien à l'office. 15 minutes après le début de l'entretien le recruteur m'a proposé un autre offre, pas de business manager, mais de consultant dans un secteur qui n'a rien à voir avec mon profil...expérience bizarre et une grosse perte de temps...

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    I applied through their HR at a job fair where I gave them my CV. A week later, their HR interviewed me over Skype about my CV to find out more details before sending the CV to the manager meetings. Two weeks later, I got a phone call scheduling a telephone interview with an engineer at Alten Digital. This interview lasted for about an hour, along which I was asked about my recent professional experience. At the end of this interview, I was invited for a personal interview at their office in Duesseldorf. This interview lasted about an hour. First they introduced the company and their fields of activity and then asked more detailed questions about my experience and qualifications. In the end, they offered to answer some questions I may have and the interview ended with the promise of a feedback in the following days. Their feedback came, but apparently they did not have a project in the near future in need of my skills. So I was not hired.

    Engineering/ Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milano (Italy)
    Anonymous Employee in Milano (Italy)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ALTEN in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was first inteviewed on the phone by HR. They asked really simple questions, regarding some of my choices. They have a very italian way of doing things and are not very professional as the seem to tease you while they are speaking to you.

    The second inteview, that could have been easly done via Skype was a meeting with a business mangaer in Milan. A total waste of time since the only real question was to know how much I wanted as a salary. It was not a plesent experience that does not justify going to milan.
    Not professinal at all.
    The outcome of the interview was positive anyway.
