    Assistant Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hay Group (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The overall experience was very pleasant. I was interviewed by 3 people all at once. They were all very nice and the interview that was conducted had a casual tone. After you tell them about yourself, they will ask you to answer a set of prepared questions that have for you. They each proceeded to bring out a piece of paper with 10-15 interview questions and they take turns asking you to answer each one. They listen to your responses and write each of your answers down for each questions. The questions were't too difficult. Mostly behavioral questions such as: "name a time you have failed", "what's one of your greatest accomplishments", and questions of that nature.
