    Applications Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fountain Valley, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ceridian (Fountain Valley, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied through employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I received a response from Sue Svetkovich scheduling my first telephonic round. So, during this round I was asked about my work experience and few other general questions. I was then asked to schedule for the second telephonic round(approx. 60mins) for which I was interviewed by a Sr. Application Analyst. He tested me in three areas: technical(10-12 questions), trouble-shooting(5-7 questions)and customer-facing scenarios(3-5 questions).Later I got a response that they were impressed with my technical skills and that there weren’t any red flags, and have asked me to schedule for the last round which is an onsite interview. As it wasn’t possible for me to travel, the interview was conducted over the phone. It lasted for 60minutes where I was interviewed by two managers. In this round, I was asked few technical questions and a lot of customer-facing scenarios. Later, I got a response from the HR saying that I wasn’t selected because I did not have enough customer facing exposure. It was totally unexpected and disappointing, but I did not want to give up, so I contacted Sue, hoping to find out if they could conduct another round of interview to test my skills.
    And here comes the twist of the tale, she considered my request and successfully set up another interview session with the Senior Managers. She is approachable and despite her busy schedule, she is very prompt in responding or providing updates. Meanwhile, I tried to assess my answers I have given in the previous round and corrected my mistakes and prepared well. This was a telephonic round and lasted for apprx.45 mins where I was given few customers facing scenarios and was asked how I would handle such situations. After it ended, I was confident that it went well, and I received a response saying that I had been accepted for this position. The overall experience was great and the interviewers at each stage were amazing and always made me feel comfortable.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical Questions: basic SQL questions. w3schools.com can be a good source to brush up your basics.
      Trouble shooting questions: there are no correct answers for this section but they would test you on how you would identify the cause of a problem and the kind of solution you can come up with. (Tip: Be inquisitive and try to ask more questions to identify the cause of the prob).Try to have a basic trouble shooting technique and you can apply this for any kind of problem.
      Customer-facing scenarios: They want to see how you would handle situations under pressure, how well you can handle a problem by aligning to the company's values or how can you explain some technical concepts to a non technical person in layman's terms.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ceridian (Fountain Valley, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very lengthy, asked a lot of questions, many of which seemed irrelevant. Didn't get a clear picture of the job duties. Many other questions, such as what I did not like about my previous positions. I have a solid and lengthy relevant work history. I left feeling confused and frustrated. The position has been open for weeks now and they are still interviewing. Pay was poor compared to the market and the duties required, which were not stipulated well in the job description.

    Interview Questions

    • How I would manage others. The position was not managerial in nature.   2 Answers
