Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Dayton, OH

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at CSC in August 2011.

Interview Details – Talked with a recruiter first, and was introduced to a recruiter for a different organization within the company that was looking for experienced associates with my skill sets. After talking to the recruiter I was asked to meet with some of the management team on the job site I was a candidate for. After meeting with three different people in management on the project, I was offered a position. The interviews were very personable they were looking for people that were coachable that would make good team members.

Negotiation Details – They would not budge on vacation time, 10 days are the standard, which the vacation is earned a couple of hours each week you work. So it takes nearly 6 months to build up a week of vacation.

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Falls Church, VA

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CSC in May 2010.

Interview Details – Applied online, got an email from the HR manager the same day to schedule for a phone interview the next day.
Phone interview was very good, the HR manager was very nice and friendly. Scheduled an in person and a panel interview with the hiring team the next week.

The hiring manager was very nice and friendly, showed alot of interest in my candidacy, asked alot of question including where else I was interviewing, gave me the salary range for the position etc etc. When the interview was over he told he would call me directly the next day or after a week.

 I thought that I would for sure get an offer, a week later got a phone call from the HR manager that another candidate was selected.
I guess the other candidate had more exprience.

Interview Question – Tell me something about yourself.   View Answer

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Noida (India)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at CSC in January 2013.

Interview Details – Process includes written aptitude test which is very easy. than Group discussion / Extempore..which is again easy to crack for a person with average communication skills. Than they have a couple of rounds (around 2-3) of interview including HR and Technical. A basic subject know-how would be sufficient.

Negotiation Details – NIL for freshers and irrelevant work-ex.

Interviewed at CSC

Interview Details – After an online inductive reasoning test, I was asked for a phone interview. The interviewer called me a few days before to be sure I was ready and to answer my questions.
During the 45 minutes interview, he asked me what I knew about the company. I gave the information I had gathered online (Revenue, location, workforce, share price etc.).
Then he asked me competency questions :
- Give an example of a time when you had to deal with a conflict in your team.
- Give an example of a time when you achieve something better than the others.
The answers must be given with the STAR structure.

Interview Question – No unexpected question   Answer Question
