    Very comfortable interview process. Interview with one director, two senior managers, and the VP.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by current consultants. They were all very personable and forthcoming with information. In truth, I was not as aligned with the position as I should have been. They were seeking applicants with a stronger focus on analytics, which I did not have.
