Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at OneBeacon.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume online and through a friend that had connections to the hiring manager. Received a call within 2 days and an interview within 2 weeks. No panel interviews, but one with hiring manager, one with team lead and two others with business partners. All interviews were laid back. One week after I interviewed I was offered the position.

Interview Question – All questions were mainstream....nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

I applied online - interviewed at OneBeacon in October 2012.

Interview Details – I was contacted to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was more of an "inquisition". The recruiter wanting to ask all the questions, but never wanted to answer mine. After interviewing with hiring managers, I never heard back from the recruiter, despite following up numerous time.
