    Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at American Public University System (Charles Town, WV) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed by four people but the last interview with the most senior person was amazing -- different and appropriate. I was expecting a typically interviiew and a "stuffy" one but instead I was met with by a disarming but obviously very smart manager who had me do a case study, and show my work, so he could see how I worked through it all.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Public University System (Lancaster, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had about 3 interviews one on the phone with the hiring manager, another with the director of the program and one face to face with the hiring manager, I also had to do a written sample for the job. They asked pretty basic questions the first time, the second time they asked me questions about scenarios that I had to deal with at my previous jobs and how I would react to certain things that may be asked by my supervisor and how I would react to certain students.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a combination of online tests (writing screen) as well as a group interview with the department director. In order to move to the group interview, you were required to pass the writing screen. Overall, it was a pretty lengthy process and took about a full month (or a little longer) from start to finish.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Public University System (Charles Town, WV) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Sent in my application, received a writing screen request that was easy and just required answering a couple additional questions. Then I had a phone interview, which was easy, and was invited for an in-person interview. The in-person interview was a little strange, and there was no opportunity for me to ask questions; they just asked their own questions and then showed me out. They told me I'd hear "early next week" but it took three weeks to finally tell me that I didn't get the position (by e-mail).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at American Public University System (Charles Town, WV) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I met with a few people in different buildings. Note that they are located in many buildings throughout Charles Town. The review was not very difficult. It was a standard interview. The executive that I spoke with was not very well versed about the position I would be taking so that may be why it was not too difficult.
