    Financial Management Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Cloud Sherpas in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process took about two months. I first interviewed with their recruiting representative and it was a feeler interview to see if I was well spoken and competent. I then interviewed with the two FMA's already working with the company and gained insight on what they do. I think interviewed with a controller in another business unit (they were considering people for two positions), followed by an interview with controller in the business unit I was trying to get into. None of the interviews we terribly technical or difficult. Most just explained what the job entailed and tried to see if you had experience in those areas, or if it would scare you away. I ended the process with an interview with the CFO which explained the company and where they wanted to go in the future. He also discussed salary, bonus, and raise information. Everyone was very fair and amiable throughout the process. The only difficulty I had was in the length of time and the lack of communication throughout the process, but I feel like most interview processes take a while. I was also anxious to get out of my former job.

    Negotiation Details
    I spoke with the CFO and told him point blank what I wanted. He told me what they could do and what range they needed me to be in. Our views matched and I ended up with a very nice package that I am satisfied with. I wish I had gotten a raise put into my contract as I did not get one at the end of the year due to their cut off date, but lesson learned on my part.

    I was referred by an employee of the company. I first had a couple of phone screening interviews with the HR Representative, followed by a couple of interviews with Consultants at the firm, and finally an on-site interview with a manager at the New York office. Everyone was very nice and gave their honest opinion about the firm and their experience. Overall it was a very smooth process.

    Full Time - Non-Technical Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Cloud Sherpas in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The beginning of the process went smoothly and quickly from person to person. There were many interviews, but I expected that based on the role and honestly they were great. People with different perspectives and insights to share, as well as varying questions, so nothing was repetitive. The time between the last interview and the offer was long, but they shared up front that a great deal was going on.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were about past or experiences, no crazy or trick questions. It was obvious that cultural fit and philosophy were important, so being able to genuine with responses was great.

      There were a few "have you done ____" and when I shared yes, the next question was what did you do or how would you do that here given what you have learned about us so far.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cloud Sherpas.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very quick. I went through 4 phone interviews with different members of the team in various roles. After the first interview I would say it was less than a month before I was hired. Once hired I went through an on boarding process which was excellent and well put together. The entire hiring process was made simple due to the guidance of the HR department and management.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions where pretty straight forward for a consulting position. They really wanted to get to know you and how you as an individual would handle various situations.   Answer Question

    Human Resources Position Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Cloud Sherpas.

    Interview Details

    The entire process took a while. Initial contact took place before the holidays in December and I received an offer at the end of February. First contact was made by phone, second interview was also by phone. I had one in office interview where I essentially walked the manager through my previous work experience and applicable skills. Everyone was very friendly and honest during the process. I was contacted for a third phone interview with an out of state manager, however that interview never took place. A second out of state manager contacted me and then I had yet another phone recap with the manger who interviewed me in office. In total I had around 5 interviews. The recruiter also contacted me frequently via email which was a good sign.

    Interview Questions
    • I can't say there was a particularly difficult question, but they definitely want to know that you have some type of plan or vision for the future. Make sure you have a 5 year plan or something of the sort.   View Answer
