BCS Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Administrative Specialist Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at BCS in June 2014.
Interview Details – 30 minute phone interview with recruiter. Oddly enough, I didn't get the questions one other person reviewed they got (how spouse feels about career change, etc.). Two days later another 30 min interview with hiring manager. Same questions asked and answered. In the end, they picked someone who had more work experience than me.
Interview Question – Typical questions: salary expectation, career goals, when can I start, etc. No curveballs here. Answer Question
Senior Finance Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at BCS in May 2011.
Interview Details – BCS admin contacted me by phone within 1 day of submitting online app/resume. Set interview for following day, learned it was with a recruiter not the hiring company. Kept waiting for some time at interview. I was asked very detailed questions about my salary and personal life/marriage/relationship, more than about my professional skills. I was told there was a long process, and the next step would require a meeting to include my spouse. Vague answers to my surprised questions, surrounding how it was all a family decision to change jobs. Additional questions about my salary history and financial status. Finally interviewer disclosed their real purpose, which was to engage me as a client of their job-hunting services, and he proceeded to use scare tactics about my resume, background and ability to find a job without their services. I left on pleasant terms and within an hour emailed politely that I would not be pursuing a relationship with them. He did not even respond to my email.
