    I applied through college or university – interviewed at AllianceBernstein in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The Interview was for the TOP program for the development of the business analyst role. I applied through my Univeristy's recruiting board, and I received an email arranging for a phone interview. The phone interview asked many questions on technical background, such as experience in business analysis and the use of several programs. Basically, experience was a huge factor on whether or not advancement was likely.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at AllianceBernstein in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone screen with the lead technical recruiter. He had a very thick Russian-sounding accent and mumbled a lot, making it very difficult to understand him. I had to politely ask him to repeat himself numerous times and he responded by getting agitated. I don't understand why you would hire someone whose first language is not English to be the initial representative for your company. Not surprisingly, I didn't get another interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at AllianceBernstein in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process was slow and the company is going through a lot of changes. There was also a lot of people who were hired the year before and then left or were let go. Not a good sign. The payout structure is not great after the first few years and there seemed to be a lot of people unhappy or looking for new jobs.
