    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Acquity Group.

    Interview Details

    I got the interview though campus recruiting event. The interview process started with some simple basic information such as which side you may be more interested, business or technical. If your answer is business, they will place you into business analyst. If your answer if technical, they will place you into technical consultant, which main job function is programming. The recruiter went though my resume and ask some related question. At the end, I had a case interview asking me design a web for furniture store.

    Interview Details

    I had met them during the career fair. Initially had the 1st round interview on campus which involved case studies.Was invited for the next set of rounds at their HQ in chicago. Consisted of 5 different rounds. The interview rounds were more behavioural in nature than technical. The interviewers were extremely easy to talk to and overall it was a great experience

    Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Acquity Group in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter connected with me LinkedIn, and we scheduled an initial "get-to-know-you" interview. After that, I had a technical phone screen with a peer (same title/level), which I'm assuming went well. I was then invited to the Chicago office to interview with 3 sets of people (HR, managers, technical), plus do an on-site writing sample. Once the interview process was over, it took about 2 days before I was extended an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected "question" for me was the writing sample. I was told about it beforehand, but I really didn't know what to expect as far as the actual assignment. It ended up not being too bad - a simple essay on the future of technology.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation phase was pretty simple. They asked what I was currently making, and instead I gave them a range of what I wanted to make. Their initial offer was well within that range. With the quarterly and year-end performance-based cash bonuses, it was a pretty decent offer.

    Consultant Senior User Experience Designer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Acquity Group.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by a recruiter. She did a great job of explaining the history and culture of the company as well as the type of work they do. Very standard questions for me.

    Had a second phone interview with the UX manager. It seemed to go well other than one of his final statements was "Well, I think I have everything I need to know here."

    I did not hear back from the recruiter, even after I sent her an email inquiring about my status as a candidate.

    Associate, Technology Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Acquity Group in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was a long and very elaborate process. Initially the HR kept updating the status regularly, but once the onsite interview was over, they failed to get back if they had a positive decision or not.
    First round was on campus. Where they actually have flash cards and ask you to choose one of them. Each contain a case.
    The one that I picked was on product pricing. They asked me to help a furniture store to brand and sell their products on a website I was designing. They went through my thought process and saw how I did it.
    I was then invited to their office in Chicago for the final round. Long day. Had a bunch of people. It was a round robin fashioned interview where they constantly had you switching rooms. Initial round was with one senior mgmt personnel (completely situation and behavioral round); next was with a current associate (again non-technical and behavioral); third round was technical (simple poker game implementation apart from the fact that the manager was unclear in most of his questions)
    By late noon, HR gave a tour of their office.
