Interview Details – The interview was fairly smooth and easy. No hard questions at all. Just your basic interview questions such as, "what would you do in this situation"..."how would you handle this"...then they begin to give you insight on how the company works and how the hours, etc. will be.

Business Solutions Analyst Interview

Business Solutions Analyst

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at SunTrust in May 2014.

Interview Details – Contacted by recruiter through linked In. Next steps- HR called to get basic details and then another HR(senior to the previous one) called to discuss the details and to schedule a phone screening interview with the recruiting manager. This process took 3-4 weeks.

The phone screening was with the Recruiting Manager about 30-45 mins and focused on questions about your current profile and position at Suntrust.

HR contacted me a week after this phone screening to schedule an onsite interview with 5 other people. The onsite interview was scheduled 2 weeks after the phone interview.

The onsite interview was again behavioral, people despite their busy schedule were warm to talk to. No HR was available either before or after the interview, to let you know when you can expect to hear back.

Ideally, you expect to hear back in a week or may be 2 weeks if the answer is yes or no. Here there was no communication. Reached out to HR after 3 weeks to check the status but didnt receive any response. 6 weeks after this I see that the position is closed, but still there was no communication that you are not selected.

Interview process was good, but would have appreciated if atleast was notified if I am been considered further or not( some response).

Interview Question – It was behavioral interview so no exceptional questions. If you have some examples of different scenarios and can articulate well, you should be good.   Answer Question
