Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
Application Details

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY in March 2011.

Interview Details

Started off with a formal phone interview which focused mainly on fit for purpose analysis, job spec details, technical skills around analysis. It was then followed by a technical assessment. I realized that this was an important stage as based on the results i will be called for a one to one interview. My turn around time for the assignment was pretty quick, they'd expect ideally 1-2 days at max.
During the face to face interview, i was joined by a group of 4, 1 each from americas and germany and couple of them based out of london. It was majorly a scenario driven interview with the usual blanket of competency based questions.

Interview Questions
  • Lot of scenario based questions (real time, project based) There weren't many competency based questions asked.   View Answer

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at EY in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is interesting in the sense that it imitates actual work at the company.
    The process starts with a not so quick case to be solved, followed by a group presentation.
    People are eliminated and the rest of them go to two 1:1 interviews.

    The case part is fair and square, and the participants can notice why people were declined by the company. It's pretty obvious.

    My interviews lasted longer than the usual 40 minutes because I could develop well. The real "Questions", cases and market sizings were nailed in less than 10 minutes, and the rest of the chat was a chat.

    Interview Questions
    • The most dificult or unexpected questions for me are the personal ones. Usually interviewers assume that you have reasons for doing things or being there. I don't. So I have to come up with plausible answers.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    São Paulo is terrible for living.

    Business Analyst Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    1st round: on campus, with a senior person in a similar position. 45mins. Basic behavioral/experiential questions. Non-technical.

    Final Round: 3 back-to-back interviews in their Alpharetta office. The first interview was with a current business analyst, second was with someone in a different department who is non-technical, and the third is with someone with a much more technical background. He/she will ask hard questions. They weren't hard in the sense that they were thought provoking, just ambiguous and poorly worded. There may have been somewhat of a language barrier.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at EY in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Hiring was very straightforward, but I think this is mostly due to the attitude of the local business and HR management at the time

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EY in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    It had 3 rounds in total. The first one was pretty basic... some aptitude along with a sheet of questions on MS excel. The technical round was easy too. I think they mostly check on attitude and stability(longevity) of a person.
