    The process took 1 week - interviewed at ZS Associates in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I'm not really in a position to give advice, as I did not make it to the office visit. In total, I had two phone interviews before getting a form rejection e-mail. The first was a case study, which was awkward over the phone. Not much to prepare for there. The second was a behavioral interview where they seemed to want to get a feel for how I work in teams. Not well enough, apparently.
