    Billing Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ankura (Chicago, IL (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    After two interviews — one which was a video call that the Billing Team was over 15 minutes late for — I was told by the hiring manager from headquarters (no one from the Billing Team in Chicago contacted me at all during this process) that he wanted to discuss how the Billing Team wanted to proceed with me over the phone. After waiting a week for that call, I was told in a very short conversation that they did not want to proceed with me. I felt like this was a tremendous waste of time and I left the phone call without any reason as to why they didn’t want to hire me. I also want to share that the same manager tried to convince me that their company was aware of the Black Live Matter movement and that the CEO was taking a strong stance on the issues facing diversity in the firm. I was simply asking the hiring manager about the company culture and felt like his answer should not have become focused on that. It was a shabby attempt to make the company seem diverse and ultimately offended me.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Ankura.

    Interview

    30-minute phone interview with a hiring manager, comfortable setting and no questions that were surprising or out of the ordinary. Pretty standard zoom style interview and I recommend coming with good questions about the program.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Ankura.

    Interview

    Took about 6 weeks. The Human Resource department seemed a bit frazzled in the process. There was one screening with Human Resource and one meeting with department. Everyone was kind and easy to talk to. The interview lacked content and substance about expectations, and what the company's mission is.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ankura.

    Interview

    First-round interview was 30 minutes of behavioral questions. Second round interview was 30 minutes of technical questions, mostly about my econometric background. The process felt very short, and I wish I'd had more exposure to staff members than just the two I interviewed with.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ankura.

    Interview

    Submitted an application online and received an invitation for a phone interview.

    The phone interview was 15 minutes with very basic questions, but the recruiter didn't seem to know much about the organization when I asked her questions. She told me she had recently started after I asked multiple questions about company culture, work life balance, etc. that she couldn't answer.

    The next step in the process was an in person interview. She said she would follow up within the next week and a half but never did, so I assumed I was not moving forward in the interview process.
