    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Was called by consultant and they forwarded my CV to Hitachi. Next day got a call for phone interview the same week. Phone interview went well and was selected for the final face to face round with consultants from Japan. It also was ok. No unexpected questions.
    After that the consultant called me next day and told feedback was positive but their process is slow. So have to wait a while for offer. One month over and no offer came and I accepted another offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Hitachi Consulting.

    Interview

    I got referred by an employee that worked there. I got an email back to schedule an initial phone screening within a week. After about 20-30 minutes of regular interview questions, she told me honestly and clearly that there is no opening that she sees fit at this point. It was disappointing but it was a quick and honest interview process

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Applied at a career fair on campus. People there were great and very friendly and helpful. was invited a few days later to an on campus info session. After that, round 1 of the interview. It was a 45 min scheduled interview on campus. Round 2 was at their location two weeks later. I did the first interview and was done in about 30 minutes. talked mainly about my experience, projects I've worked on, style of dispute resolution, how I would pick a team, why Hitachi? and this one was a little odd: define strategy. Interviewer was very closed off it seemed. Talking fast, trying to get the interview done with quickly. seemed very rigid, business focused.

    Interview

    I met them on campus for a Career Fair. I, then, went to my university career website and applied and was asked for an interview. The process was not too difficult. They held one-on-one interviews on campus. Not many questions were asked, mostly just asking about my resume.

    Interview

    Was offered on campus interview after applying through campus recruiting. An hour and half in total. With two separate people, each for 45 minutes. The first one asked mostly behavioral based questions off a list. The second one asked me to list 2-3 involvements with bullet points for each, then he chose one involvement and asked me more detailed questions pertaining what I did for that position, what technical programs I used etc. You need to know your resume well. Both recruiters are friendly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online through my university and was subsequently contacted for an interview. I had an in-person interview that took approximately 80 minutes and had two parts. The initial part was business-centric, during which the interviewer and I discusses Hitachi Consulting itself and the work done there.

    The second interview was a personality/attitude interview during which the interviewer asked me to simply discuss my CV from bottom to top. Not to because it was unclear, but as a speaking and conversational exercise. He then asked me to recant times when I'd had trouble with team members and how I resolved them.
