    Lead Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at ISO New England in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was approached by an internal recruiter. My conversation and interview with the recruiter were pleasant. I met a total of 4 people during the onsite interview. I was alarmed to hear how much the interviewers stressed that the work environment in the finance/accounting group is rigid and inflexible when it comes to work schedule. They seem to expect long hours from their employees. By the time I was 75% through the interviews, I knew that this was not the place for me. Another negative was that the interviewers seemed to have no desire in getting to know me personally. I was volunteering personal information to try to generate a feel for what working with these people would be like and the attitude from the highest ranking interviewer that I met was an "I'm not interested in that" attitude. I asked about how the position became available and I got the sense that the previous person had done whatever they could to transfer to another department. It was the first time that I ever considered calling a company after leaving the interview to let them know that I would not be interested in the job even if they offered it to me. To top it all off, I have not heard back from the group at all and it has been several weeks now since I met with them.

    Interview Questions
    • The person we hire for this role is expected to be at work until the job is done. We work 45 to 50 hours depending on deadlines that cannot be missed. I want to be clear about that.   View Answer
