    Marketing Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilsonville, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mentor Graphics (Wilsonville, OR) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview for marketing business analyst though. Firstly, they changed the job description and the coordinator sent me a JD which I hadn't even applied for! I reached back to them on this and it was corrected. The interview was very short- They were looking for an IT based skill set which was not described in the JD and was a clear mismatch. Overall a very very unplanned, unorganized disappointing process.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mentor Graphics (Wilsonville, OR).

    Interview

    I was contacted about the opportunity after they selected my resume from a uni career fair. We communicated via email about the position before a phone interview. A week after the phone interview, I was invited on-site for multiple interviews and to give a technical presentation. A very positive experience and it paid off as it has paved the way for further engineering roles within the company.

    • It was one technical question in a topic that I was not that skilled in. It didn't hinder me as I got the other ones correct.   Answer Question
