Business Analyst Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Marysville, WA) in March 2017.

Interview

The interview was an online interview in which the questions (8) were presented on the screen. 4 of the questions were to be answered by talking into my webcam and were recorded for future review by the company, and 4 were to be answered by my typing my response into a webform on the screen. The process of getting set up for the interview went smoothly (getting webcam and microphone to work), and there was unlimited opportunity to practice by responding to sample questions. However, once you began the interview, you had a limited amount of time (usually 30 seconds) to think about your response to the question, and then a limited amount of time (3-5 minutes) to record your answer. There was no opportunity to retake a given question, and you couldn't see your response later to see how you did at responding on camera.

Interview Questions

  • (Paraphrase:) An employee says that the incorrect amount is being withdrawn from his paycheck for the company health plan. It has already been determined that the amount that was displayed on the benefits screen at time of benefit selection was correct, but the amount being withdrawn is incorrect. Describe your process for troubleshooting this issue.

    This question was one of the written responses, and you were allowed 10 minutes to answer.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (San Diego, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was a digital interview which lasted about 35-40 minutes. Questions were mostly related to my business analysis career experience. There was one scenario question where I was asked to understand the scenario and describe how will i approach this situation. There is some preparation time and some answering time. I mistook the answering time for 1 of the questions as the preparation time and hence missed it. There was no way in which I could answer that question again or let the team know. Wish the interface were more friendlier.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson in February 2016.

    Interview

    The initial interview is a video interview where you are asked questions with oral responses and written responses.

    If you make it past the video screening the next phase is broken down into three phone interviews and one in-person interview but this could change depending on your location.

    The phone screenings are with people in different roles and those employees have a great deal of knowledge about the company.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Denver, CO) in September 2014.

    Interview

    They ask the typical questions and go over your resume. They do ask some of the 50 possible questions that can put you on the spot. All in all it went fine. It came down to myself and another person. Location makes a difference.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson in April 2014.

    Interview

    The process was long but worth it. It took about 3 months from the time I applied for the job on their website to the time I got the in person interview. I think this is because they are currently doing lots of hiring. It was very much worth the wait. The people I met were great and I enjoyed speaking to and meeting each of them.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were too difficult. They all related to the job I was applying for. They wanted to find out what I would do in a given situation etc. It was a very comfortable process. I felt like I could relax and be myself.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation needed. They made me a great offer and I took it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I came through an agency for a 3 month contract to hire position. I interviewed with 3 people that took up to about 2 hours to finish; they were interviewing a ton of people. It depends on who you interview with but one interviewee was very casual and easy to interview with. Another was by the books so expect the typical googled questions and another was a mixture of both.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any but I'd probably say salary. Coming in as a contractor, that's usually up for discussion right there and then.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was easy since I went through an agency. The direct hiring process took some effort though.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume at a career fair at the University of Chicago. Recruiter emailed me within a month and scheduled a phone interview for two days later. Questions overall were not that difficult, mostly just personality and "walk me through your resume" type questions. Interviewer was very friendly and the conversation was not intense.

    Interview Questions

    • Relating past experiences to the current position applying for. My previous work experience was not directly relevant so had to twist some skills from previous jobs.   Answer Question
