    Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Slalom Consulting.

    Interview Details

    Slalom Consulting @NY is one the best when it comes to interview process. HR keeps you well informed through out the process. Even though process took a while (about 5 months), I was always kept in touch with any new developments. I met about 4 to 5 consultants, they were all pleasant and basically you are gauged to see if you can survive as a consultant. My technical interview was not too hard and not to easy. But overall it was a pleasant process.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Slalom Consulting in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Multiple interviews, all onsite about 1w apart. Hiring manager, then Practice Area Lead, then Partner, and then General Manager. Very laid back, conversational interviews generally. They are looking for a good "fit," not just someone technical. Each interview was ~1hr, so expect to talk about yourself (background, skills, goals). Was asked as the end of each interview if I was still interested in continuing the "conversation."

    Reasons for Declining

    Went with another offer. Limited vac and holidays, although it was stress they would be flexible in this area.

    Interview Details

    Initial screening from recruiter, typically phone call followed by a 1-hour in person interview. Mostly behavioral, with some points of emphasis on your past experiences. If successful, the following 2-3 interviews are with senior leadership resources from the office in which you are applying. These tend to focus 50% on 'fit'and the other 50% on skillset/experiences. The final round interview is with the main General Manager of the local office as a final go ahead.

    Business Intelligence Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Was approached by a Slalom recruiter at an industry convention. After the convention, I reached out to the recruiter and expressed an interest in the Data Management & Analytics practice area. The recruiter immediately responded and scheduled a phone interview. The recruiter then requested another phone interview with a Talent Acquisition Manager. At the conclusion of the interview, the interviewer was enthusiastically talking about my fit for the position and described the people with whom I would meet in the next interview. Nevertheless, I have not heard back from them after the second phone interview.

    • The questions were not particularly difficult. Primarily interested in professional background and relevant experiences for the position.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Slalom Consulting.

    Interview Details

    As a whole the interview process was fairly seamless. The recruiter I worked with was very knowledgeable about the organization, he did a very good job of explaining the structure, etc. The interviews themselves were very constructive and provided a good balance of open dialog affording me the opportunity to ask questions.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Slalom Consulting in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter and everyone that I worked with through the process were very pleasant, but the entire process took way too long (and too many visits to their SF office). Once they finally decided to make an offer I had to return yet again to the office, only to be underwhelmed. Not worth the time or effort.

    Interview Questions
    • Was asked about technical details for specific software that I had never referenced. I was interviewing for a role aligned to Human Capital - I think the interviewer forgot what they were looking for.   Answer Question

    Management Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Slalom Consulting.

    Interview Details

    Extremely long interview process. I had interviews with 6 separate folks in the Los Angeles office ranging from recruiting staff to Managing Directors and after all the time invested by Slalom and myself, the company decided not to hire me! My understanding of why they decided not to progress with me was that my experience was only on large client engagements.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe how you handle transitions e.g. between teams, phases, projects, etc.   Answer Question

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Slalom Consulting in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Saw the position had been posted on LinkedIn and contacted. Received a response within a few hours and set up a meeting with recruiter. Learned more about the company and set up for next steps, which was a face-to-face with another similar level consultant. Talked about previous experiences, wasn't really a tech screen, but I think it was more to get a feel for how I interacted and communicated.

    Next step was a technical screen with an architect-level consultant. Set up a screen-sharing session and he gave me a problem and had me solve it in the IDE. Gave me 15 minutes to solve and improve it--it was a very simple question designed to allow me to show how I would take a basic request and improve it with OO paradigm and other high-level architecture.

    Next step was a face-to-face with a few of the leaders of the local office. Various soft questions about previous experiences, issues with coworkers, successes and failures and what I'd change.
