    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 months - interviewed 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.

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at EY in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was a long interview, (about an hour) considering it was my first job second interview ever. I thought it went well and I was able to handle most if the questions. The questions ranged from my past experiences to religion and ethics. It was a one on one interview and the interviewer was kind of in a rush in the very end. I later found out he was a senior manager.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed 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
