Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EY (São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)) in March 2012.

Interview

The hiring process is interesting in the sense that it imitates actual work at the company.
The process starts with a not so quick case to be solved, followed by a group presentation.
People are eliminated and the rest of them go to two 1:1 interviews.

The case part is fair and square, and the participants can notice why people were declined by the company. It's pretty obvious.

My interviews lasted longer than the usual 40 minutes because I could develop well. The real "Questions", cases and market sizings were nailed in less than 10 minutes, and the rest of the chat was a chat.

Interview Questions

  • The most dificult or unexpected questions for me are the personal ones. Usually interviewers assume that you have reasons for doing things or being there. I don't. So I have to come up with plausible answers.   Answer Question

Reasons for Declining

São Paulo is terrible for living.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (London, England (UK)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Started off with a formal phone interview which focused mainly on fit for purpose analysis, job spec details, technical skills around analysis. It was then followed by a technical assessment. I realized that this was an important stage as based on the results i will be called for a one to one interview. My turn around time for the assignment was pretty quick, they'd expect ideally 1-2 days at max.
    During the face to face interview, i was joined by a group of 4, 1 each from americas and germany and couple of them based out of london. It was majorly a scenario driven interview with the usual blanket of competency based questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Lot of scenario based questions (real time, project based) There weren't many competency based questions asked.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY (McLean, VA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    5 questions cut and clear from your average textbook joe. They were more interested in college activites and gpa, than actual past experiences/ internships. Which made it more of a if you aren't a perfect student at school you can't work for us kind of vibe.

    On campus interview- behavioral or read through your resume and ask questions. Make sure to know your resume inside and out.
    On site interview - 3 behavioral interviews with different people. Heavily prepare for behavioral questions-- one lady drilled me with behavioral questions one after the other. The other two asked me behavioral questions but it was mostly conversations mixed in as well.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Alpharetta, GA).

    Interview

    1st round: on campus, with a senior person in a similar position. 45mins. Basic behavioral/experiential questions. Non-technical.

    Final Round: 3 back-to-back interviews in their Alpharetta office. The first interview was with a current business analyst, second was with someone in a different department who is non-technical, and the third is with someone with a much more technical background. He/she will ask hard questions. They weren't hard in the sense that they were thought provoking, just ambiguous and poorly worded. There may have been somewhat of a language barrier.

    Interview Questions

    • "Please tell me what you can assume about this situation... You work for the only bank in a state and you are trying to figure out how many ATMs the bank should implement."   Answer Question
