    Market Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Driscoll’s.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was pleasant and easy, the recruiter was very helpful about setting up a time to conduct the interview. The interview itself was ok. Reasonable questions asked by the interviewers and it was clear they wanted to know about the candidates knowledge in marketing/market analysis. In the end my experience in that area was not enough to be hired but I still found the interview to be fair and a good experience.

    Interview Questions

    Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Driscoll’s in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with HR and Department head. While the process was very typical, I don't believe that enough information was gathered about my experience nor did the employer really know what they were looking for at the time. There are many questions that I would have asked and follow up would certainly have been more robust.

    I handed a recruiter my resume at a career fair at my university and was contacted a couple months later about the opportunity. They scheduled a preliminary phone interview with me for screening. I was then notified that they wanted to do a Skype interview. They provided me with helpful tips on how to be successful in the interview which really was a great thing. After the interview they let me know by the next week that I got the job.
