Business Systems Analyst Interview

Business Systems Analyst

Interviewed at Exeter Group

Interview Details – An in-person, first round interview after applying to the company through campus recruitment.

The interview was pretty informal. Because my university's career services center closed by the start of my interview, we headed over to a local cafe and began to chat. The interviewer (who was a talkative middle-aged lady) asked me about myself and my past work in a very conversational format. Moreover, she made a lot of effort to tell me about the current transition Exeter Group is going through, from being a technology services-consulting hybrid to more just tech. While it was convenient that I wasn't being grilled and she was doing most of the talking, I found it a bit too casual--and even a bit unprofessional. But, then again, the lady was nice and I appreciated her efforts to honestly inform me about her company. That, at least, gave me the impression that the company was pretty transparent.

Interview Question – In your previous consulting work, what experience do you have with technology? To what extent was it involved?   Answer Question

Consultant Interview

Consultant
Boston, MA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Exeter Group.

Interview Details – 1st round on campus: Behavioral Interview. 30 minutes
2nd round on site in Boston: Multiple interviews, full day. Interviewed with several consultants and and managers. Mostly behavioral, some brain teasers, no case interview. Use the interviews with the other consultants and managers to learn more about the company and decide if you want to work here.

There is only one interview that matters. And that's your interview with the CEO. It was a short 15 minute interview, and I'm not sure what he gleamed during those 15 minutes, but I got an offer.

Interview Question – You are going to be asked a couple brain teasers.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None

Consultant Interview

Consultant
Boston, MA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Exeter Group in November 2012.

Interview Details – After a resume drop and initial interview on campus, I was invited for a full day interview at the offices in Boston. This was a great experience, but was very draining. Afterwards we were all (20 of us interviewing) treated to dinner at Morton's and drinks at a local bar. I interviewed with 8 people who asked a variety of questions, some mental problem solving. I did not receive an offer.

Interview Question – The CEO asked, "Do you have any questions about our company?" This seems like the kind of question where you need to wow someone. Not something I excel at.   View Answer
