    Business Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Acxiom in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied for a business analyst position through my university career website. Got a call at 9:30 pm on a Sunday that they were interested in interviewing me. I was invited to a meeting for technical recruits that went a lot like a shareholders meeting. A recruiter discussed the direction of the company, and alluded to a major expansion in the works. The next day I interviewed with someone from the department in which I would work. He was very much interested in my understanding of technical language and my ability to translate for business people. There were no "gotcha" questions to be had, and it genuinely felt like a conversation. He did press me a couple of times to be more detailed or to expand on a few ideas. The interview lasted about 30 minutes, then I was sent back to my original recruiter contact. She said she would be in touch, and now I'm waiting for a response.

    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Conway, AR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Conway, AR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Acxiom in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed twice for separate positions. The technical writer interview consisted of multiple persons (nine?) on the "team" within a conference room. Aside from the awkward conferencing of 3 people via phone, the interview was quite uncomfortable due to the effort, or lack thereof, members engaging in the interview process, whether by body-language or physical appearance by participants on the team, All preparation went down the drain wanting to excuse non-participants from the interview. If this was considered a "test" to see how one performs under pressure, it was horribly, choreographed. Never had a follow-up, wasn't expected.
    Second interview, one year later for Team Leader, consisted of two individuals, the Manager of team leaders and the exiting team leader. Very laid back, very comfortable. Not in a conference room, more like a lounge. Offered the position but declined, transition was not financially lucrative.

    Interview Questions
    • Technical Writer- In referencing my resume, asked why I would hold a position in which I was overqualified (question posed by individual not wanting to be there)...Answer- "Just graduated college; needed experience, insurance,and to be a productive member of society."
      Team Leader- It was such a casual conversation with the two interviewers, I really didn't think I was going to be offered the position, so I was able to be myself and chalk it up to experience.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foster City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Acxiom in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Email from recruiter in Arkansas on a Thursday, spoke with her Friday, setup interview for Monday, Tuesday email reply "not interested." Did they even review my background? The last time I checked companies don't work that fast.

    Met with 3 people, all account managers. Pretty laid back interview process. Basic questions, how to deal with time management, being detail oriented, dealing with tight deadlines. The office was fairly new looking, however I waited for over 10 minutes for the receptionist to come back to her desk to check-in.

    After reading a lot of the reviews from employees, its difficult to figure out the management structure of the company due to the nature of business. Which comes to mind, what does this company do? Good luck trying to review their website, its like reading a textbook with no real examples to show for. They explained that I would be working with in-house marketing teams from other companies (GAP, AT&T, Intuit?) The associate account manager couldn't even tell me how the consulting department is integrated into the account management process.

    Project Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Acxiom in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    This was a horrible experience. The interview process consisted of 6 telephone interviews that lasted about 45 minutes each. I was finally granted a face to ace interview. The email listed the company on the 3 floor. When I arrived to the 3rd floor it was a beautiful suite of empty offices. T walked down the hall to another company and ask the receptionist if she knew where Acxiom was located, She directed me to the send floor. There I saw a handwritten sign with the company name. I looked through the glass panel and the office was almost dark and no one was it the receptionist desk. I rang the door bell and a man let me in and directed me to the manager. This was a little scary, because there was no lights on and at least 20-25 empty cubical s. There where 2 women sitting near the window- (which was the only light in the whole area.) They looked miserable. I meet with the hiring manager after asking me the same questions she asked during the telephone interview. She wanted to schedule another telephone interview! When I returned home I sent the corporate office email stating I was no longer interested in their company. In my opinion, this is a company that should be investigated very careful, before submitting to their time consuming interviewing process. It pretty scary when a company does not use or have proper lighting, cool water or air conditioning.

    Interview Details

    Easy - referral from a friend. They get a bonus $1,000.00 to refer, so they happen often.
    The questions were not brain busters - They're looking for personalities and passion rather than someone who is actually qualified - which can be seen as a positive and negative - but there has to be a balance.

    Interview Questions
    • None. Just be prepared and ask them intelligent questions... they like that.   Answer Question

    No negotiation. Background check - normal. Drug test - okaaay I suppose to be on the safe side. Credit Check - really?
