    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at UK Ministry of Defence (London, England (UK)) in October 2020.

    Interview

    It was a remote interview via video conferencing. Bearing in mind the general delays in decision making in Covid-19 times, the time from applying for a job to being invited for an interview (and getting a post-interview feedback) was short. There were three people in the interview panel. I expected more technical questions but I guess due to the nature of the remote interview, it wasn't practical.

    Interview Questions

    • As specified in the job advertisements, all the questions were related to the specific aspects of the recruitment framework they follow (and which was explicitly stated in the application information) so no surprises really, which really took me by surprise as I expected some technical questions. I was asked to talk about a situaiton when I successfully run a project involving other teams.   1 Answer
    • To talk about a challenging situation and how I dealt with it.   Answer Question
