    Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Arthur D. Little (Brussels (Belgium)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online
    First round interview was in three languages (Dutch French and English). The case itself was a market sizing case.
    Second round is somewhat harder. I received a market sizing case again. Second part is a presentation of a case that you solve by yourself. Interviews were though, but nothing out of the ordinary for consulting.
    Third round is an interview with the partners and is more about fit than actually testing you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Arthur D. Little (Milano (Italy)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I only had the chance to be interviewed once but with two different managers.
    First manager: The manager gave a brief presentation of the company and then ask me to introduce myself.
    Some easy but tricky math (ex. divide 29 by 3) that required all the digits after the comma. If you don't say all of them but just round they are going to tell you "you are wrong".
    A brain teaser and a business case. All the questions were actually easy if only you were not in a room with a man starring at you and constantly looking at the clock without saying a syllabe. My advide is: not panic.
    Second manager: again company presentation and my introducion. Then business case. This person was more patient, calm and sympathetic so also the case seemed to be easier.
