    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Wall Street Systems (New York, NY) in January 2009.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter. A day later, he setup an interview. Met with HR rep first. Very nice person. Talked about the culture and how many people have been at this firm for a long time. Some about my experience and how it fit the position.

    Second interview was with the hiring manager. Very personable person. Interview went well. However, the recruiter sent me for the PM role and the position I was interviewing for was a Sr BA role.

    Asked one question which was probably "the test". "How do you price a derivative." Apparently, this must have been specific to the position. Recommend you prepare and know this in advance.

    High quality firm. You should be flexible to travel widely.

    Recruiter told me they had an extensive interview process in "October", with 10-15 people in the interview process and they did not hire anyone from this. Please draw your own conclusions!!!

    Technical Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wall Street Systems (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Contacted by a nice recruiter, booked in for a phone interview, it was very generic, I have been called for a face to face interview with the same person plus a very simple technical test, such second interview went very well. Called for a third and final interview with a Senior Manager nad HR ( so I was expecting an offer on the spot) , but with my surprise it wasn't the last interview for the role. The senior manager showed a lack of interest in my career achievements (quite impressive), and basically he didn't read my CV inside out before the interview, he was verya very corporate guy with an evident lack of people management skills, he told me that there, is the CEO that decides everything (is that not called dictatorship?), why hiring managers then not trusting them in their judgements?? mystery... After 10 days with no feedback (other lack of professionalism) the recruiter informed me that they don't want to progress. ON top of it they have cheated the job specs to attract more senior guys (shark policy?!)
    My final impression is that it is a company with serious communication problems, lack of organization and a ridiculous interview process (never heard of panel interviews??), I am more than happy that they haven't made an offer , that I would have declined anyway.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wall Street Systems (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    They first call me for ph interview and then face to face interview. In the face to face interview they interviewed me about 2 hours and asked each single detail of the job and other programming, agile, SQL and UNIX based questions. I have answered all the questions except the networking questions which was not the requirement of the job but still they asked me and i said i have general knowledge of networking but not in detailed. So they reject me which was quite strange.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wall Street Systems (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I applied directly to the hiring manager who posted on my university department's website.

    2 weeks after I submitted my application, I was invited to the phone interview. Mostly behavioral questions, took 1 hour. Interviewer (who was the hiring manager) was very friendly. Was invited to in-person interview by the end of phone interview.

    In person interview was scheduled 4 weeks into application. It was a 3 hour process:
    1) Over the web interview with London manager
    2) Over the phone interview with HR
    3) Discussion with hiring manager and Vancouver office manager
    4) Panel interview by 2 other business analysts
    Topics were mostly behavioral but also involve technical expertise such as software development life cycles, and the random financial question.

    Received a verbal offer 1 week after the in-person interview. HR department is understaffed so it took them 4 weeks after verbal offer to send me the written offer. (Did give me a scare as I was wondering if they had a sudden hiring freeze)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Wall Street Systems (Prague (Czech Republic)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The first round consists of a technical test, you have approx. one hour to answer on paper. Then, the interviewers ( I had two) go through it and discusses with you. Then there is a short interview with the manager telling you a bit about the position and the company.
    If you pass, the second round is a 24-hour programming excercise. At a predefined date and time you get an email with the assignment and you have 24 hours to deliver the solution.
    If you pass, the third round is a bit technical interview with director manager from France. An HR interview follows. Here I failed, they preferred another candidate.

    Although they offer competitive salary, what I was surprised about was the fixed working hours from 9-6.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Wall Street Systems in January 2011.

    Interview

    The initial round was a telephonic interview with the Senior Manager over the phone, post which a 1:1 interview was scheduled with the same person and a junior project manager after 4 days. Though the feedback had not come even after 10 days. The agency kept stating that an outright rejection would follow immediately, but feedback on hold could mean positive for me. The interview process was one of the toughest one I had ever attended.
