Interview Details

I interviewed with Kaplan for a data analyst position through a third party- an IT recruiter. I was skeptical, since I'm targeting financial services and my experience with IT is limited. Nonetheless in this market it would be non-sensical to pass up an interview for a decent job. The interviewers were professional yet icy cold. I could tell initially that they had little interest in me (most likely). Most of the questions were standard, until they got to a brainteaser that I feel they chose poorly. They could have asked me another one that would better test my thought process. Instead they asked me to name 5 uncommon uses of a brick and then listed a bunch of things I couldn't say. I was left with few suitable answers and a timed 20 seconds to answer. Well I only gave 2 "acceptable" ones and was dismissed.
