    Analyst Marketing Mix Consulting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Analytic Partners.

    Interview Details

    2 Interviews and second interview consisted of 3 separate interviews with potential peers. One on on with very friendly people. Relaxed atmosphere albeit in a pretty skeletal office environment in an iffy part of town. Seemed like a rudderless place as the person in charge was based in Europe and not in the Dublin office

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Analytic Partners.

    Interview Details

    Saw a posting on my college job board and sent in my CV/Resume and Cover Letter. Received an email back asking me to take part in an online test.

    After completing the test I was called if for an interview where I met with an Analyst and a Senior Analyst. This initial interview was very technical and questions focused on knowledge of statistical analysis and excel ability. Some brain teaser questions were also asked. This initial interview stage lasted about an hour and a half as I met with both analysts separately.

    Following this I was called into the office again to meet with a consultant and two members of Senior management. This stage of the interview was more general and questions focused on CV and personality.

    Offered a job the week after the final interview

    Interview Questions

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Analytic Partners in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted via email to submit a questionnaire (asking about my skills and interest in Analytic Partners) and my transcript. I was also asked to take an online timed assessment test, which was a series of short math problems. After completing all of those, I had a phone interview and then was invited for an in person interview, where I met with three employees of different levels and one HR representative. The HR part of the interview was a long list of behavioral questions, but the other employee interviews were more conversational.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was lower than my current salary and about 20%-25% lower than offers at similarly placed positions. They were not open to negotiations on any aspect of the offer.

    It was a really long process. I applied through campus recruitment and had the first set of interviews on campus. Then a few weeks later an IQ/Personality test was sent. I did that online. Then they emailed me for an interview. I went to the interview and met with four people. Each interview was 30 minutes each. They ask you personality and market sizing questions. The people are friendly and nice.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Analytic Partners in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got contacted via Email a week after I applied through LinkedIn to set up a phone interview. Normal behavior and motive questions. Then they sent me a online test which took about 30 mins. Got a call in for a on-site interview a week after and were told to wait for the result in two week if they decided to move me forward to the next round. The interview lasted 2. 5 hours and I met three mid-level consultants who asked questions around research experience, interest in the position and teamwork skills. At last, the HR manager came in and told me details of the training and learning opportunity in the company.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Analytic Partners in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Sent in my resume, was emailed about setting up an interview as soon as possible. The interview process took about three hours altogether. I met with four people and spoke to each for about 30-45 minutes. The interviewers held different positions in the company and asked similar questions, but also different types of questions. A few were just personal questions getting to know me, my experience, and my interest in their company. The harder questions were more abstract where I had to come up with answer to very unexpected questions.

    Interview Questions
    • In one year, how many vacuums are sold in New York City? How many cars can you fit into a plane? They don't expect you to know the answer, since they don't know the answer either, but they want to hear how you approach solving the question.   Answer Question
