Operations Analyst Interview

Operations Analyst
Raleigh, NC

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Credit Suisse in February 2012.

Interview Details – Very cut and dry process - one hour interview, split into two separate ones. First had two people in it - asked extremely boring questions, weaknesses, strengths, how do you go about solving a problem, leadership, etc. Second asked similar questions. Overall, it was an easy interview, however it showed a lack of creativity on their part and did not seem like an exciting job at all.

Interview Question – No difficult questions   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The department the job was in did not seem like a good fit - the people who interviewed seemed boring.

Why Operations? I said i like seeing things from start to finish. I like to try and make things more efficient.
