I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Global Resources (North Chicago, IL).
Phone call with Business Analyst/Recruiter. He seemed fairly knowledgeable and had a lot of good insight into the position. Assured me that 70 - 80% of the owners we visit sign up after meting with a Business Analyst. Not a bad closing ratio, and I understood that the role of the Business Analyst was to show value in what the consultants do, which did not seem unreasonable. Described travel requirements, and that analysts would get a chance to work with a multitude of businesses suffering a multitude of unique problems. This job description fit me to a tee since I have been working with small businesses for quite sometime helping the owners/managers fix issues. After only making one call, and doing some deeper investigation of this company at the insistence of family (Google "John Burgess Global Resources", and be amazed at the lawsuits...), I decided that this was not for me. Global Resources requires you to pay for certain travel expenses and then get reimbursed. This is not out of the ordinary for travelling business people, but most travelling business people expect that once they get to their destination, they will be required to work. GR Business Analysts are required to sell using high pressure tactics and hard sell techniques. I genuinely wanted to be a part of a solution, and learn a lot on this journey, but after I realized that this was about to turn unto a money sink for me, I got out fast. Fortunately, I am only out hundreds of dollars rather than the thousands that I have read about other Business Analysts losing. Do not believe this company's lies!
