    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AMA.

    Interview

    The hiring process meets up to the hype. The interviews were difficult and thorough. Questions probed technical competency, project management experience & textbook knowledge, General Business Operations. Depending on the interviewer, you may be asked vague hypotheticals. If this happens to you, create a story around the hypothetical and explain the process you would follow to solve it. They are looking to see how you problem solve so be thorough in explaining your process. Also be aware the hypothetical may be based on actually problems and tasks you will be required to complete if they give you the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at AMA (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview took about three hours. First with HR, it was just about the general information about me, working authority, working hours, etc. Then, I talked with a young team member of the data team, and he just walked through my resume in general. The last interview was with the team leader. That was a deep one on my resume. For I never took an interview in that long time, I didn't perform well in the third one.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at AMA.

    Interview

    The process took about 4 weeks. I applied through the university job site and got a call from the HR recruiter for a telephonic screening. After that I had another hour long telephonic interview with the Data Architect and an Analyst in his team. A few questions were based on my resume and others were related to RDBMS and Data Warehousing concepts (nothing too detailed). I answered to those questions based on my past experience and projects. Following are a few questions which I remember: 1) Explain what do you understand by Business model (logical and physical) 2) Why do you want to work in Business Analytics/ Intelligence space? 3) Any experience with Tableau/ Visio/ SharePoint? Explain if yes. 4) What were a few challenges that you faced in your last job? 5) What would you do if your recommendations are not accepted by the client/ senior management?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at AMA (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    It was over all a horrible experience, and it should have been a clue to me that it would not be a good company to work for, but I needed the job at the time, So I took it. It took months to get through the whole process, not including the first month, when, after replying they were interested to my resume, hey told me they chose others to interview, and were not longer interested in me, and then a month later called back and told me they were interested. Hiring managers took days and weeks to get back to continue each next step in processs. HR seem useless and gave wrong information. But again, when you need a job, you unfortunately try and ignore most of the negative stuff.
