    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Elk Grove Village, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Topco Associates (Elk Grove Village, IL).

    Interview

    Their interviewing process is extremely slow and they ended up going with internal candidate. Disappointed since it felt like I was strung along for over a month. My background and interviews went great so it felt like a obligatory move to go with someone internal.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Topco Associates (Elk Grove Village, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Highly disorganized process. Start then stop then start. Put me in front of several executives who were both unprepared for my interview. Received an offer which I subsequently declined. I felt it was a roll of the dice given executive leadership was so unprepared as well as the time and context of whatTopco is facing.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Topco Associates (West Palm Beach, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    You go through either a recruiter or staffing agency, The Director will call you on the phone and speak with you briefly, then if they like you then you are asked to come in for a face to face.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Topco Associates (Quincy, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Two casual interviews, both with associates, both 30 min long, both asked questions just based off my resume. In the Quincy office, they have no HR, so associates conduct interviews.

    Their Quincy office is in a nice office park on a hill, and they are situated on the third floor of their building with a great view of Boston.

    Associate Manager of Sourcing and Analytics Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Topco Associates (Elk Grove Village, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very quickly and when asked to shadow the group, hesitation arose. Only one phone interview and one in person interview with Sr. Manager and Business Analyst. Very generic behavioral questions. Follow STAR format and you should be fine. Be sure to shadow though before accepting any offers; this environment is not for everyone.
