Business Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Value Partners in January 2012.
Interview Details – I was looking for the consulting positions in Mangement Consulting firms. While I was searching for that kind of firms in Turkey I saw Value Partners and asked about it to my friends. I tried to apply online but because of the problem that web site has I was unable to send. Then I decided to find the HR guy from linkedin. I've asked him if the problem in web site will be fixed. He said I can take your application via mail. I've sent my CV to him. After 20 days I've been called for an interview. The interviewer first asked me about my background and then talked about Value Partners'. Then he asked me two case study question. One of them was included quantitative questions. The other was more verbal. I answered both of them. I think I was more succesful on quantitative one. In the verbal question it was very difficult to reach the solution. But I think they we more looking to the questions that you ask to reach the solution. He said there will be 2 more interview and the interview with partner and an offer. I hope I can see all the phases.
Business Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Value Partners in February 2011.
Interview Details – The interview consists of personal experience questions and a business case.
The interviewer was not structured, and the interviewer was not prepared for the interview. There was not an actual case, but the interviewer made it up the case and all the number during the interviewer. Therefore it was really hard to form a structure. The feedback was not helpful. (The only feedback was that I should write M instead of putting 6 zeros which was funny:)
The interviewer was continuously comparing their firm with Mckinsey, makes me feel like she still has a pain from her rejection from Mckinsey:)
Business Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Value Partners in May 2010.
Interview Details – The interview process started with CV screening and then we were invited to a case day which consisted of only 1 case and a presentation completed as a group of 4 or 5. They provided detailed information on case and most of the people from the office was present there. They observed our soft skills at all times. The caseday was fun and there was a coctail at the end of the they were we get a chance to learn about the office and people. Then we were invited for 2 distinct one to one interviews. The first one was quite generic, however I was asked a brean teaser question and then I did a case of competitive response and game theory. The second one was a fascinating interview which was mainly finance based and extremeley hard. I learned a lot from this interview and I was really challanged, it took around 2.5 hours and I had no idea how it went. The final interview was a discussion with the Turkish partner, it took about 30-45 minutes where we discussed my personality, past experiences and my questions about consulting. As a comparison with other consulting firms, I might say that this was the only company which is interested in my personality, personal motives and desires, and my willingness for consulting. I liked everyone I met here and enjoyed the interviewing process a lot. It's a small office and it has a great atmosphere which you felt at every second of interviewing process. I especially recommend the second round interview since it has aspects which everyone can learn from.
Interview Question – Very open ended question on finance View Answer
