Hey all, applying from a front office position into more of a back office role (analyst) as I am realizing I do not enjoy sales as much as I thought I would. My question is what would is to be expected with the the analyst skills test (excel test typically I hear), do they usually do it in person? Is it something you take home? How complex do they typically get? The positions I would be going after range from entry level to a very junior position.
