General Analytics Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

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

Interview Details

They were very detailed about scheduling and when they would get back to you. Big plus in my book. The interviewers were very friendly and willing to answer any questions you might have. However, when they say they are recruiting engineers, you really need to have a business background or it will not work out.

Interview Questions
  • The hardest question was the case study in which you had to do a lot of math computations. Overall it wasnt that hard, you just need a little bit of a business background.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at ZS Associates.

    Interview Details

    There would be a written test with questions testing quantitative skills of the candidate after which 3 rounds of interviews would be conducted. The first round would be a case study round where a lot of data is given in the form of tables (printed on paper). The candidate would be asked to draw out meaningful conclusions from the data and point out possible data errors. There would be one more round to test the attitude of the candidate (behavioral round). The final interview would be the principal interview (taken by one of the principals of the firm). This may vary from candidate to candidate. Mostly a mixture of behavioral questions + some questions testing analytical skills (noted in the next section)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at ZS Associates in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    Comprised of 5 rounds (2 telephonic and 3 in office interviews). Since I have also been on a recruitment drive after that I have seen the process extremely closely.

    These guys take their hiring really really seriously!! Each and every question asked has some significance to the final decision and with proper frameworks they make sure that everyone gets a fair chance.

    To just satisfy people who think they were deserving but did not get through - they have a policy of erring on the side of safety. They acknoledge that you MIGHT be a fit for the organization, but the dont want to risk other employees if they are not sure about you.

    The things they see -

    Skill - Analytics - You should be smart. Full stop
    Fit - They try and gauge how you react to certain situations since they want to maintain a healthy work place culture (which they have very successfully managed to do)
    Communications - You should be decent in your communication skills - Since you might be required to interact with clients within 6 months of you being hired.

    Hope this was helpful
