    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ahold USA.

    Interview Details

    The process took about a month, partly due to my own schedule. The HR person was very accommodating and was very personable. I went for an in-person interview and was told that someone would be in touch in 7-10 days to let me which direction the company would be going with my candidacy. I sent a follow-up note that evening thanking them for interviewing me. I got a response from that email the next day, but never heard back in 7-10 days - not even a generic "thanks but we chose someone else" email. Very unprofessional but, unfortunately, somewhat common these days.

And finally got the confirmation call from HR , followed by offer letter in email.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Ahold USA in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    First interview with HR went well. The second interview was on the phone with a senior manager.

    Interview Questions
    • Before any introduction the interviewer asked me: "Do you have any questions?" The question was to say the less odd as I barely knew what the job was about. I only talked to the HR person. I asked a few questions, he was cold, nearly rude. He then asked a few questions. Most of the time close questions, I naswered and gave as much detail as possible (2-3 minutes each). Each time he let a long silence after my answers, implying "that's all?" to finaly say thank you. This interview was a waste of time for both of us. His first words were actually to tell me that he didn't want to do the interview!!!   Answer Question
