    Oracle Data Warehouse/BI Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (London, England (UK)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Initial communication came from them, I was pleased and went along for 1st interview with the UK head of consulting at a client site near to me, that seemed to go well and was then invited in to the London office and found that I'd been given the right name but wrong role title of the chap I met, so I had prepared for a BI interview and got a Datawarehouse interview, I have since heard nothing. No excuse for such rudeness.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting.

    Interview

    Applied online through their website. Received a call about 8 days later from the Talent Coordinator who I spoke with and schedule the interviews through. The following week I had a two part face to face interview with the manager and then two senior staff members. The discussion with the manager was specific to my background and experience and about the position and job details. The discussion with the staff members was behavior based in relation to my experiences that had taken place. The next morning I had a phone interview with the director and was more of a in depth behavior based discussion from my work history. Received a call from the recruiter later that day that I would be getting an offer within the next 24 hours. Received the offer the next day and accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • Majority of the questions were behavior based and specific to your experiences and then would ask, "and what happened next?" or "What did you think about that?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They discussed my prior work history and compensation and then asked what my expected salary was.

Afterwards, all the interviewers//interviewees went to lunch.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by current consultants. They were all very personable and forthcoming with information. In truth, I was not as aligned with the position as I should have been. They were seeking applicants with a stronger focus on analytics, which I did not have.
