Senior Business Analyst Interview

Senior Business Analyst

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Experian in May 2011.

Interview Details – If you can get through HR you are halfway there. Interviewed one on one, then group. Pretty standard stuff. Asked relevant questions. The group is more formal so wear business attire, white, black, blue etc. generally takes 30-45 min time for one on one or hour to hour and half for group. Expect to have full background check done. HR seems to take awhile to respond.

Interview Question – None, all standard questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Check overall package. You can negotiate maybe once.

Software Implementation Engineer Interview

Software Implementation Engineer
Carmel, IN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Experian in January 2013.

Interview Details – Was contacted via a recruiter to interview for position in Carmel. Recruiter was very nice and helpful. Passed the first 2 phone interviews then went to Carmel for an onsite interview. Interview went incredibly well. Office was very depressing and dark and the cubicle setup was really horrible looking. Got a phone call the next day that they decided to go with someone further along in the interview process. Talked with the recruiter and determined that this position was already filled and I was never actually being considered. Completely unprofessional and a waste of time.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. Mostly behavioral.   Answer Question
