Business Analytics Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied through college or university – interviewed at ZS Associates.

Interview Details

Had first round interview on campus. Interview was 30 minutes case, 30 minutes behavioral. Had a different interviewer for each part of the interview. Case was a little tricky and I was not quite prepared for all the math I had to do, but overall fair and not excessively difficult. Behavioral was really straightforward and felt like more of a conversation than a job interview. Both Interviewers were very friendly and helpful.

    I applied online and got contacted a few days later by HR for a brief phone screening, which was simple and straightforward; it just goes through your qualifications and preferences. Shortly thereafter, I got contacted for a two-part phone interview, the first part case and the second part behavioral, with each part lasting half an hour.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and had a first-round phone interview within two weeks. The first half was a case interview, consisting of both quantitative and qualitative questions. For the quantitative questions, I recommend using an excel spreadsheet rather than a calculator. The math was fairly easy and straightforward (all numbers were given). The second half was a behavioral interview. The questions were all standard. Waiting to have second-round interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ZS Associates in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and recieved an email asking when I would be able to have a phone interview. It was with HR and they went over my resume, clarifying different points. They said they would contact me within a week, but it took them two weeks. They scheduled two back-to-back interviews with me, the first being technical and the second behavioral. In the technical interview they showed me data for different companies and asked me to find patterns. Have a pen and paper ready to come up with simple algebraic formulas and have a calculator handy. The difficulty was easy/medium. The behavioral interview had questions like "describe a time when you worked as part of a team and failed to meet a deadline. What did you do?". All questions were asking to describe negative experiences from the past, and how I handled them.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ZS Associates in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had my initial interview on campus, and then I traveled onsite for the final round interview. I applied for the position through my school's career services.

    The first round was two 30 minute interviews -- one all about fit/behavioral questions, and the other purely quantitative/case-based.

    The final round was basically a longer version of the first round. It was a half day of interviews -- one behavioral, two technical, and one Q&A session with a current consultant.

    I applied online – interviewed at ZS Associates in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Final round interview was a half-day visit on-site at the office. Schedule was laid out beforehand so there were no surprises. The recruiter I was corresponding with really put in care and effort in picking out who I would be interviewing with for each specific part of the day, and I ended up having an almost all-women interview panel! Quite a few of my interviewers had a connection with my university and my engineering background.

    I have not yet received an offer or rejection, was told that the result would be coming within a week of my interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Everything was as expected and as detailed in the communications with the recruiter. Typical questions.   Answer Question
