Business Analytics Associate Consultant Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ZS Associates (Chicago, IL (US)) in August 2015.

Interview

I applied through their career website and was referred internally by a friend of mine. I was contacted within a day of applying by a recruitment manager who set up a time with me a couple days later for a phone interview. When that time arrived the recruiter missed the call. I followed up with my contact at ZS who referred me and he was able to track down the recruiter to reschedule. When we finally had the phone screen the recruiter was great and made the phone interview very easy. It was basic questions about why ZS, why consulting, etc. After the call the recruiter emailed me to set up the next round of interviews (2 behavioral and a WebEx case). I gave my availability but she stopped responding to my emails. I followed up with calls and emails over the next few weeks but was being dodged. Overall I thought it was incredibly rude and inconsiderate. Probably more a reflection on one individual and not the company, but still...

    Interview

    The process is a series of interviews, I believe 3 or 4 in total, depending on whether they split one up or not. In the earlier stages is pretty much simple behavioral and case interview questions, but further down the line the case interviews are a bit more complex. Despite being known for being one of the toughest companies to interview for, I found that the interviewers were a lot more polite and helpful than many that I have encountered.

    Interview Questions

    • The part of the case study that tripped me up had to do with pharmaceutical sales of a drug and the graph was a bit confusing, I think it was done intentionally. My first instinct was to ask whether information was missing, but it wasn't, the graph was just a bit weird.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ZS Associates (San Mateo, CA (US)) in December 2010.

    Interview

    People are very friendly. The interview process began with a phone screener, then two sets of interviews at the office. The first includes a behavior assessment and case study that you walk through with an Associate Consultant. The second consists of a case study in person, one that you fill out on a paper and then walk through with someone, another behavior interview with a principal, and a project demo where you walk through someones project (this is not an interview and is more for your own information but it is important that you ask poignant questions and pay attention to any questions that ask you to recap the information shared with you). There is also a lunch with associates and you can get to know the people and company culture better. I was then called by a principal and offered the job.
