    Business Management Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redondo Beach, CA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Redondo Beach, CA (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Submitted an application on website and in a week was called in for a panel interview with two people. This role description online had a lot of financial and accounting responsibilities that made it very attractive to me but once I was in the actual interview I was told all I would be doing was very basic billing and none of the other things that encouraged me to apply. Plus, those who interviewed me were very cold and turned me off from the position. My suggestion is press the HR recruiter to tell you the specifics of the role because the business management analyst role is very broad. You may be applying for something you don't want to do or be preparing for an interview that is completely different from the actual roles of the job. It was an easy interview with no behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • You need to express your past experience and how it can enable you to be a good (if not exact) fit for this position. Ex. Tell me about your past experience and how you would be a good fit for this role.   Answer Question
