Business Analyst Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sokrati.

Interview

I had applied for this company, after being informed of the vacancy at one of the leading social network sites. I forwarded my resume, and got a call soon after from the HR, who asked all the basic HR stuff, like where you are currently working, what is your role, willingness to relocate, etc.
The date for the next interview was told, and I was clearly told next round will be just basic HR stuff only.
When I did receive the call on the scheduled date, it was a full on technical round, which I had to take from office, as I was told it will only be a basic HR round, which was not supposed to last for more than half an hour. I was given two cases, analysis for which took half an hour each, and explanation took another hour. And this stretched till almost 11 in the night.
For next round, I had asked what to expect, and was told i will be evaluated on Client Management. That round was fairly easy, and managed convincing the interviewer regarding my supposed Client Handling skills, in hypothetical scenarios.
Next, i got called by the HR, stating that i have been selected for the final round of interview, and it has to be face to face, as they apparently were very convinced about my abilities. Despite trying hard to negotiate for a Skype interview, they insisted on conducting it Face to Face, which they repeatedly mentioned was extremely urgent, and had to be done at the earliest, but they were unwilling to pay for the airfare, as apparently, its against their policies. Despite this, i was willing to comply with them, and bear the additional charges for the airfare.
When I reached there on the day of the F2F interview, it was hard to locate the office in the first place, it really was on the highway, and there was nothing nearby, you literally had to walk a long way if you even wanted some basic food. After having found the place, I was greeted by the HR, who only mentioned that she'll get the interviewers ready for me. I was still not told anything about what to expect in the day.
I had two rounds of interview, both testing my client management skills in random hypothetical scenarios, which each lasted 45 mins each, post that they broke for lunch, and I was told to that only a formal HR round remains. After a 2 hour wait, my final round of interview began, and it was another technical round, where in the interviewer came with the sole objective of rejecting me, since he apparently was not even convinced about the role i played in my current company.
So after a 6 hour ordeal, finally my interview ended, and i was told the HR would contact me.
After almost 10 days, i had to call the HR up, to know about the status of my candidature, who apparently had completely forgotten that i had come over for an interview, and after 2 days I again had to follow up with her to know about my candidature.
Shoddy behavior from the company through out, and specially from the HR

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sokrati in March 2015.

    Interview

    I got a call from the interviewer and she asked me about myself, I answered her. It was a telephonic interview and there was a lot of disturbance so I asked her to call me back and she did after a while and the disturbance was even more. We again began with the interaction and she wanted to know more about my extracurricular activities than my curriculum.Then I was asked why I wanted to join Sokrati and brief on the company if I knew about it. It was casual not so serious so we began with the questions then.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sokrati (Pune (India)).

    Interview

    1st Round - Telephonic Aptitude Interview (Around an hour or so)
    2nd Round - Face to face interview with 2 employees
    3rd Round - Face to face interview with one of the CEO's (same day)

    Please note that even though the position was of a Business Analyst, all the F2F questions I was asked were for a team lead. This might be because of my seniority in front of the other employees which are usually recent graduates (I have 3 years of experience- so not that senior).
    Anyways, I thought it was a little unfair to ask me questions about leading a team and marketing domain since I had made clear that this was a new field for me beforehand. Also, I was given no intimation that this job requires managing a team (if you check their website, the BA position nowhere mentions leading a team as description or criteria)

    Suggestion- They pride on their very young culture so might want to put you in a senior level immediately (which is definitely a good thing), so please be prepared with leading a team answers if you have a few years of experience.

    Interview Questions

    • How will you manage a team? How will you handle the scenario since most people younger than you will have more domain knowledge than you do? If we give you 4 people in a team, how will you make sure you don't differentiate between them?   1 Answer

    Its better if you don't go for interview as they don't have proper hiring managers. They won't select you even though you answer everything , so u will be disappointed unnecessarily and waste your time going to their office. If you are out of station candidates , don't go .
