    Business Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at MarketAxess.

    Interview

    The interviewer called, with a thick French accent. Hard to understand most of the time and had to pause to think about what he said in order to answer.

    Set up a phone interview and the interviewer called 15 minutes late.

    Told me before hanging up that I would hear back. Emailed him a few days later and received no response. It's fine to ignore emails but don't tell people that they will hear back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MarketAxess (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Phone screening, an hour long call took 13 minutes because my interviewer refused to answer almost all my questions. Here is a short list.

    What was the last project the team worked on?
    What java script frame works do you use? (His answer was " a mixed bag")
    What is the team size?
    What are the projects like?

    On Glassdoor there are a lot of negative reviews. When I brought any of those topics up he refused to answer.

    I was asked about my experience and what I wanted to do.

    Interview

    Phone Screen (basic Java questions) -> Tech round (intermediate Java questions/data structures) -> HR round

    The tech team reads off a script of questions found here on glassdoor in the second stage.

    The HR round mostly asked me personal questions about my education (high school and college) rather than what I could offer to the company. No personal questions besides education, for the most part. Just where you got your degree/your high school experience. One of them also remarked that they thought my school was bad.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the difference between abstract classes and interfaces?
      Did you come from a public or private high school?
      Did anyone famous come from your school?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MarketAxess (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Online application, phone screen, then super day in Manhattan with 5 back to back interviews with different senior managers. Very laid back, only one interviewer really asked "interview" questions, the rest just were more conversational. Make sure you have questions about the firm and what they are working on, because the interview was more driven by what I wanted to know about the company. Told afterwards it would be 2 weeks till a decision was made, so still waiting to hear
