    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Davy (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Fast second round days after. Final response took the longest but they said no exactly when they said they'd no by. Fair enough. Second round was most HR talking the operations person just sat back the whole time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Davy (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by recruiter and applied for Davy for me. The interview process was really slow. It took a long time at to get to first interview. First interview was okay. The interviewer asked me mostly about my previous job experience and what interests I have and few technical question related to Java and Spring.

    After first interview, again it took 2 weeks to get to 2nd round which was F2F interview. It was very short notice to call for F2F. I was called in the morning that I have to go for F2F today. The interviewer was a bit stubborn. I was trying to explain but he was not even listening. Not a good experience in 2nd round of interview. Few days later recruiter told me that they can only offer the same package which I already have. So I humbly declined the offer. Overall not a good experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Davy (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The whole interview in overall was fine. I received a lot of good questions. Anyway I noticed that people who interviewed me, they were quite bored. I was not sure if it's because of me or other factor involved, but I found out after two weeks later, when I received phone call from different agency that there is a great offer from DAVY for that position. So, it means that they are still looking for a employee. Just for record, until now I have not received any feedback after that interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Davy (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Seemed like a fairly straight forward interview. Mostly competency based with a couple of technical questions on markets et cetera. Single interviewer, she was friendly. Thought it went well but got an email saying I wasn't progressing to the second round even though everything I was asked I had prepared. No explanation or feedback as to why which was rather disappointing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Davy (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Horrible interview. They presented the company to eight of us applying for the job which was fine but the whole experience was disappointing. The Woman from HR wasn't even interested in my answers. Over all the questions were fine but her attitude towards me from the very start was off-putting. It was just a tick the boxes interview with know real interest from her.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Davy.

    Interview

    The process generally takes too long, with a limited amount of feedback or updates in between. The company would be better served putting more emphasis on post-interview feedback and updates as the process can drag out.
