    Business Analyst Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Opera Solutions (Jersey City, NJ) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through college career posting. On campus first round and in-office final round; standard 2 half-hour interviews in each round. First round mostly behavior/fit questions with a bunch of brainteasers; second round all case questions. Interviewers are very nice and easy to talk to and questions very fair (in my opinion), but it took them an excessively long time to inform you their decisions (first round in early October, second round in late November, decision in early/mid January).

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Opera Solutions (Jersey City, NJ) in November 2012.

    Interview

    First round interview began with two phone calls, each around 30 minutes. First was a business case dealing with churn and how to stop it for an online dating site. It involved some easy math and you had to talk about ways to stop churn and data you might want. The second was a fit interview, all pretty basic stuff, like why consulting, etc. In person interview about 2 weeks later. It consisted of 3 interviews, each about 45-60 minutes. First interview had some fit elements and a brief case about credit card fees and attrition. Second interview was a supply chain case (which was very confusing if you're not familiar with the terminology, and the interviewer was seemingly very pressed for time and really rushed me through it, which I think took away from the interview overall). Final interview was mostly fit with a brainteaser thrown in. Heard back from them about a month or so after my in person saying I was not going to be made an offer.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Opera Solutions (Jersey City, NJ) in December 2011.

    Interview

    My former CEO recommended me to the sales EVP. He passed me to their in-house recruiter in San Diego. Recruiter had me write several papers on how I would sell a product from my former company to Opera's clients. I don't think the paper was ever passed to Opera. Following week, I flew to NJ; met many dept heads. Thorough. Great visit.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The salary and commission was actually very high, so I agreed that day.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Opera Solutions (Jersey City, NJ) in November 2011.

    Interview

    First round was two back to back 45 minute case interviews. First case was simple, something about credit card fees and attrition. Second case was about starting a business in Collegetown. Second round was three back to back 45 minutes. One was fit. One case was probability, the interviewer gave the probability of 3 different possibilities and you had to calculate the expected profit. Second case was about the profitability of building a bridge.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Opera Solutions (Jersey City, NJ) in November 2011.

    Interview

    1.) Phone interview
    2.) Case interview
    3.) Super day

    Interview Questions

    • Two parts: Phone and case study. Phone interview was behavioral, classic "walk me through your resume" stuff. Case interview two weeks later was a 2 on 1/ no prep time thing. Most interviewees got cost estimation type questions: How many domestic airline passengers per year, how many elementary school teachers in the US. Others got more qualitative questions, such as how to make Weight Watchers more profitable.   Answer Question
