I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in June 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online through university career center and received notification of phone interview 2-3 weeks later. The position that I applied for was not the position that they decided to interview me for. The phone interview was comprised of a list of questions that others have previously mentioned. Received notification about a week later stating that they wanted to invite me in for an in-person interview for 3 different positions. First round of interviews was composed of 3 2:1 interview and 2 1:1 interviews (5 total) for the 3 positions. Was contacted the next day for an invitation to complete 2nd round of interviews which was composed of 1 2:1 interview and 1 1:1 interview. Thoroughly enjoyed all 7 of my in-person interviews. Interviewers were pleasant and asked behavioral questions that are very similar to the ones previously posted. Looking for great organizational skills (ability to upward-manage projects and tasks), great presentation/speaking skills, solid goal-setting and execution skills, and people with a genuine interest in the work/field. Be able to speak to your resume. Was contacted 2 days after my final interview with an offer. Fell in love with "young" environment and opportunities to move up within the firm fairly early in your career.

Interview Question – Please describe your experiences on your resume (resume run through)?
Give an example of how you would sell an idea/product.
How would you go about getting information/requests from someone who is non-responsive?

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Advisory Board in December 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online. Within about a week, someone sent me an email asking to schedule a phone interview. The interview wasn't very personal - the interviewer asked generic questions such as "explain a time when you had a goal and how you achieved it" etc. Didn't seem like they wanted to get to know who they were actually talking to.

Interview Question – Explain a time at work when you did something wrong and how you fixed it.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Advisory Board in June 2010.

Interview Details – At this point, I've already had a phone interview with ABC, and it was very straight forward, they wanted to know about my resume experience, and what I liked about the job, etc... I'm waiting for the in person interview that they scheduled with me, and I'm hoping that it will go as well, if not better.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board.

Interview Details – Submitted resume online and heard back quickly for a first round phone interview. It was the general screening call with an HR representative. Mostly making sure you understood what the company is/what the position entails. Heard back for a second round interview a week later which consisted of 5 1:1 interview and 1 2:1 interview. The two on one was the first with HR representatvies while the rest were with people who would be co-workers and higher ups. Again standard questions. Nothing that hasn't been stated before. Everyone was really friendly and was generally just looking to see if you could handle the work load and would be a good fit. Was then contacted for a final round phone interview which I had a week later and am now waiting to here back.

Interview Question – What is your biggest failure?

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Advisory Board in January 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online and got an email to setup an initial phone interview. Set it up for after the Christmas holidays. Interviewer called exactly on time, lasted about 25 minutes, pretty standard-issue. Walk through resume, explain what the company does, what position entails, etc.

I was told to expect to hear back within 2 weeks...So I'm hoping for something to come back soon!
