    Technical Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Excelacom (Denver, CO) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with Senior Talent Acquisition Consultant which was pleasant. Second phone interview was more in depth, lasted about 45 minutes. Great conversation and very informative. I learned a lot about the company and was intrigued about the idea of consulting.

    Set up a secondary, in person interview for two weeks later.

    I was then asked to fill out an incredibly long (15 pages in total), tedious and redundant application form. All of the answers to the questions asked can be found directly on my resume and some detailed questions were asked multiple times.

    Example - List all of the computer hardware and software I've had experience with? How about take a look at my resume?

    Example - On one page they asked me to list my former employers - job title, company name and address, salary, dates worked, reason for leaving, etc. On the VERY next page when asking for my professional references, they asked me to list all of this information again!

    Example - Asking for the physical addresses of my PERSONAL references? Why on earth do you need that information? Now you expect me to track down each of my three references to get their personal addresses? Get real, I’m not applying for a job with the FBI. Please, stop wasting my time.

    If you’re trying to “weed out” applicants, it’s working.

    It’s a complete waste of my time to spend several hours filling out all of this information when 90% of it can be found on my resume, which I worked very hard on. This sends a message that this company doesn’t even bother to read people’s resumes or respect the time and effort that went into creating those resumes.

    They ask for detailed answers and then give you TINY boxes to squeeze your answers in, then they expect you to create additional documents with longer answers and attach to the already EXTREMELY long, repetitive and mostly useless application. I'm sorry, but my time is much more valuable than that and frankly, it’s disrespectful to expect me to jump through all of these hoops just to APPLY for a job at your company. I can’t imagine what kind of things I’d be asked to do if I actually worked here.

    Additionally, the company asks you to attend a Company Overview prior to or after your interview. Again, this is something that should happen AFTER you are hired. I should be able to get at least a short company overview in my interview process. I should not be asked to “show up early” or “stay late after your interview” to listen to a company presentation, considering I’m not even an employee of your company yet. STOP WASTING MY TIME!

    If the application and interview process are indicative of the company culture and style, this is definitely NOT a place I want to work.

    These red flags prompted me to come to Glassdoor and read the reviews. Oh my! The negative reviews on here are the nails in the coffin for me. No thanks.

    I withdrew my application because I would rather not jump through all sorts of difficult hoops just to apply for a job at company with this many bad reviews. I’m a Tech Professional with nearly 20 years experience in the field, not a recent college graduate, desperate for a job.

    Please respect people’s time, and stop taking yourselves so seriously and acting like candidates owe you something. We don’t, and you’re not developing a cure for cancer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Excelacom (Reston, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Saw them at a university career fair and the recruiter scheduled me for an initial in-person interview the next day on campus.

    A day or so later, I was invited to come to their office in Reston, VA for an interview "open house" the following month. They had a happy hour the night before with recently hired analysts. The open house consisted of a presentation about Excelacom from a manager followed by two interviews with company executives.

    We were suppose to hear back within a week, but I ended up hearing back a month later.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Excelacom in November 2015.

    Interview

    Overall, it was okay. I met them at the career fair. They called me the week after to do a quick scan of general questions. About 4-5 weeks later, they put down an interview date. They had a fun prereception the night before. The president gave a motivational speech at the beginning of the interviews the following day. After that, there were two standard behavioral interviews. There was a huge gap of time allocated for questions, but it was really just sitting around. They were friendly and nice. They emailed back about 2 weeks later.

    Interview

    Excelacom's "Open House" for college recruits is very organized and well put together. Alexis is very easy to talk to and everyone involved made us feel comfortable. The Happy Hour conducted the night before was a great idea! It gave us a chance to get to know each other as well as some of the current employees.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Excelacom (Reston, VA).

    Interview

    Initially I contacted Excelacom through my university recruiting process and I was contacted by a recruiter in HR.

    The first two rounds were phone interviews. One with HR, and after that I had a more technical interview over the phone to assess the level of my technical skills.

    Third round is a company visit to their Reston office. There is a panel discussion, we were told about the background of the company and met the CEO. Then we broke off into 1x1 interviews with more senior managers in the company. There were two 30 minute interviews that involved mostly behavorial and situational questions related to consulting and why you want to join their company.
