    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Novation (Irving, TX).

    Interview

    Interviewed with a large group in segments of 3-4 at a time. The questions were canned and quite superfluous. The group was looking for a specific person.; Not skills and the questions were designed to set you up for failure rather than to get to really know your talents and capabilities. I felt uncomfortable the entire two hours. The recruiter did not call after the interview and for a week I could not get a straight answer from anyone. Finally I reached out to the actual department manager who must have forwarded my message and then I received a call telling me it was "so close" but I was not chosen. Recruiters are great in the beginning and then become unresponsive. This was my second interview with this company and u will never apply again. The culture is quite stiff and strange. Very, very disappointing experience.

    Phone interview was first. Succinct and to the point. Very pleasant. In person interview was next: met first with hiring manager, then with some other colleagues. Very pleasant experience. Nice to get a feel for the energy of the company and the department. All my questions were answered thoroughly and with eagerness. The receptionist was helpful as well. Very pleasant experience all the way around.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Novation (Irving, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Three senior analysts asked me standard interview questions - my experience and skill level with the tasks and technologies involved with the job, plus strengths/weaknesses and so forth. Technology-related (programming) questions were very specific. The difficulty is average because if you know your stuff you would be fine, and then the differentiating factor would be how much they liked you.

    Negotiation

    I was offered lower than I expected. I countered with a higher amount and was countered with an amount slightly higher than the original offer. I was told that would be the final offer. I asked for other bonuses and incentives such as a sign-on bonus, etc and was told the company pays out an annual bonus that I would be eligible for later.

    The company has many Cliques, and Silo's that are often difficult to negotiate. Some of the Senor Mangement are difficult and not employee friendly. However there are a lot of very good leaders in this company. Company tries to be provide work/life balance. I would say overall the company is a very good company to work for.
