    Project Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Great structure and process. Not as smooth as non-management consultancies but that is understandable. The questions were direct and smart. A mix of personality, critical thinking, and sharpness should be demonstrated.

    Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Referred by a friend. Initially conducted a phone interview which consisted mainly of understanding the company's background and followed up with a face-to-face. Questions ranged from past experience with project management software applications (i.e. Microsoft Project, SAP, etc.) to the process of actually managing a project from start to finish.

    Overall was a positive experience - the HR manager is very personable and it's apparent he's keen on finding the right people for their roles.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Two rounds - one over the phone and one in person. The onsite interview consisted of personal and skill set questions (i.e. what does RAID stand for?). Although they usually interview in pairs, for some reason, I had only one interviewer. The individual was very nice and cordial. Nothing overly difficult was asked and I felt comfortable saying that I did not know.

    Consultant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Quick process wherein I met with one of the associate who did recruiting. Had a good chat with him and a senior associate, and was told that they would move very quickly.

    After a week they told me that they were awaiting details from a client, and they forwarded over the details to me to review.

    After that? Complete silence. I had to call them again to follow up almost a month later, and they came back with saying that another client might be interested.

    Unfortunately I still haven't received a response. It has been close to 2 months and am yet to be told whether or not I will be selected for the position.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was easy and straight forward. I was contacted by an Associate at Makosi after applying for a position located through Indeed.com. The Associate and I had a phone interview where we discussed my skill set and experience as a Business Analyst as well as what type of position I was seeking. In addition, she outlined what Makosi does, who their clients are, as well as the benefits they offer to their employees such as training, etc.... The Associate was very pleasant, professional, and easy to talk to. I was advised that my profile would be reviewed by the director and I would be contacted at a later date if they felt I was the right fit. The impression I got is that they interview not only seeking candidates to work for their client's, but as representatives of Makosi. I luckily had mentioned that I would be in town the following week and available for a face to face meeting should a decision be made to continue potential employment discussions. I was contacted to come in for an interview and was able to meet with another associate as well as the Director. I found the interviews to be both comfortable and challenging at the same time. My understanding of Business analysis skills and tools were definitely questioned, but as they should be. The Director explained how they review potential candidates as a team before moving forward to send their profiles to their clients. It is clear that they take this process very seriously and will not just hire any consultants. This process alone demonstrated how Makosi has come to be a leading consulting services provider for financial service institutions and investment banks in the New York area. Makosi's commitment to their clients as well as the furtherance of their employees would make me proud to say I worked for them. I was happy to hear back in a short time that I would be a good candidate for some available positions.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to explain the specific difference between a use case and a case diagram. Although, I was able to describe the details of a use case and am familiar with the term case diagram, I was not able to give a specific answer without being able to refer to the BABOK guide. As a result I had to state that I did not know and asked for a clarification.   1 Answer
