    Business Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    I applied on-campus. I had previously known the recruiter through a student organization and ended up interviewing with her for the internship. I had 1 30-minute interview that was strictly behavioral. After that, I got the offer about two weeks later. It's a competitive internship even though the interview is fairly straightforward. They look for personality and potential more than hardcore technical ability.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. Just know your resume. They pretty much just say "tell me about a time when..." and you need to talk about a past experience where you dealt with adversity, bad teammates, etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was for an internship, no negotiations when you're with 300 other interns at the corporate headquarters.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I applied to one specific location, but a different location got my info and called me to come to their job fair. I went there thinking they had my application, but I had to fill one out by hand. The first interview was more into how you are as a person. The interviewer asked me questions about myself and what I do in my free time. I made it to the second interview with 2 managers each asking me more formal "experience" questions. I made the mistake of not being specific in my answers because I felt like I was being rushed. I think they score you in each question from 1-10 and if you score high enough, you'll get hired.
