Business Process Analyst Intern Interview

Business Process Analyst Intern
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership in September 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online through Craigslist (they have recently switched to using Career Services sites from the local universities). I received an email from their HR person the next day and was scheduled for an interview later on in the week.

My first interview was with the VP of Operations who went into great detail about the company's past and current events. He was very excited and you can tell he loved working there. A few hours later, I had received a phone call asking me to come in again for a 2nd interview and a skills test.

The second interview was with a Senior Consultant. He went into more detail about the position and what he was looking for. I then took a skills test which had a few GMAT style questions and some work using MS Excel. There was also a personality test. After the test, I had another short interview with an analyst who wanted to know more about my background and really asked some good tough questions. After that interview, they wanted to know if I was available the next day and so I started the very next day.

Interview Question – Have you read any books lately? Can you tell me about it? What did you like and not like about the book?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Offered a base of $10 dollars with promises of performance reviews and bonuses which were actually given. Bonuses are in the form of American Express gift cards.

Marketing Intern Interview

Marketing Intern

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership.

Interview Details – I applied through my college's recruiting site. I set up an appointment with the VP of operations. However, he was not able to make it and someone else interviewed me. It was a Marketing administrator. He was really friendly and was really detailed in describing the company. He was enthusiastic about the company and people there all seemed to have a positive attitude. I did not receive position due to my late available start date. However, the interviewer gave me feedback on how to improve my future interviews and encouraged me to apply again when I am able to start to see if the position was available in the response email. I felt that was really helpful and professional. It was really nice of him to do so, because not many interviewers would do that.

Interview Question – Asks what your strengths and weaknesses is, if you prefer to work in a team or individually, about stuff in your resume(i.e. details about previous jobs), etc.   Answer Question

Analyst Intern Interview

Analyst Intern

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership.

Interview Details – Two interview days. First day you'll meet with one of the lower level analysts for 45 minutes or so, before taking up to two hours worth of tests measuring your ability to use a few Excel functions, and your analytic & research capabilities. There's also a personality test that was "optional" and not described as being important.

The second interview will be with two of the vice presidents of the company. At least one will last 45 minutes or so, but either or both could be shorter if they are busy.

Interview Question – It was an entry level position, I was asked about similar experiences, of which I had some but not quite at that level.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not applicable.

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership in September 2012.

Interview Details – First interview was an hour long (in a private room) questions asked:
1) How are you in a team environment? What would your fellow team members say about you?
2) Walk through a difficult situation/ problem you've had?

the first interview went really well, I got a call back within the hour for a second interview.

Second interview was also an hour long (in an open area where everybody walks by-- from all the reviews I've read, nobody else has had an interview in this area so just beware they may improvise again)

Questions asked (they were the same questions asked the first time):
1)Why consulting?
2) Why this firm?
3) What is a challenging situation?

I don't think the questions were difficult, I believe the environment was the worst thing about the second interview. Just be prepared in case they decide to interview in front of your future coworkers.

Interview Question – Questions weren't really difficult just the environment to the second interview would make anybody uneasy   Answer Question
