    Data Warehouse Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roseville, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roseville, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Rabobank in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with the CIO of Rabobank about the job over the phone. Interview discuss how to build a successful data warehouse. The office was impressive, new building furniture. Nice location. Work culture appeared to be "cautious" as many people appear nervous about telling the truth.

    Interview was supposed to last one hour but the CIO could leave his iPhone long enough to discuss an one topic. much less evaluate skills. Our meeting was interrupted by others by several crisis.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you build us a data warehouse yourself, with no help, no staff?   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    The CIO was rude and emotional. His attitude towards others was poor. Not the type of person I would report to. He talked more about his career than mine. He wanted a manager, but really he wanted a data warehouse developer/analyst/business intelligence/data modeler/architect. The pay was poor for the type of job. My assumption is that Rabobank believed that they could pick up cheap talent. Unfortunately every one they place in this position either is demoted or resigns.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rabobank.

    Interview Details

    The first step consists of mathematical, logical and verbal online tests. They were anyway pretty easy to answer. The second step was a series of interviews directly with people from the team. They tried as well to test my motivation and the reasons why I wanted to work for them, but their questions were mainly technical ones. What I like the most about the selection process, is that you don't need to go through an HR interview before meeting the people you will be working with.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was related to the detailed adjustments you make to the market cap in order to get tho the enterprise value when calculating trading multiples. At that time I didn't have much experience on M&A interviews and valuation techniques, so it was not that easy for me to list and motivate all of these adjustments (e.g. minorities, associates, unfunded pension liabilities, capital leasing, provisions)   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Recruiter told me that I would be interviewed by the hiring manager and a colleague of hers.
    It was just her. The first thing she told me was that she had so many CVs and so many people to interview. Although she was friendly I felt that my time was being wasted.
    Travel to interviews is not paid for, even if you come over from another country!
