    Business Intelligence Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Motley Fool (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I'm actually pretty disappointed with the interview process because I had only heard good things about Motley Fool and the company culture. I had interviewed for a business intelligence analyst position, and I was told that I did extremely well in the first interview and that I should be on the lookout for a second round interview extremely soon. I soon never heard back at all, and when I reached out to the person, after 2 weeks of silence, with whom I had originally spoke with, they told me that they had received another candidate. I was never told that I did not get the position and even after that reaching out, I was never given more information, even after being promised a follow-up discussion about the process. I'm not upset with MF that I did not get the position, and that is not the focus of this review, but more that I'm annoyed that a company was such great reviews ghosted me in the candidate process. We spend a lot of time preparing for these interviews and especially during this coronavirus time, sometimes interviews are scarce. I felt really good hearing the initial feedback and then I wasn't given a single amount og feedback afterwards, let alone an email stating that I did not get the position - I was ghosted. Please don't ghost the people that you interview. At the very least please email them and let them know that they did not get the position, especially after telling them that they should be expecting a second round interview.
