    The interviewer is not interacting with you what so ever, just read off the questions on the paper. Not a fun experience. Questions are just basically the ones that have already listed on the website.

    I applied online – interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    The interview set-up was straightforward and lasted about 30 minutes. Had a telephone interview with a recruiter that covered the basic resume review and behavioral interview style questions. The interviewer was perfectly nice and approachable regarding my questions. I was told I would receive a response on next steps within a week, and they responded within that time frame.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Advisory Board in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied, then received an email about a week later. It took over 2 weeks to schedule the phone interview. The first interview was with someone in HR who just ran through my resume with me. It took another few weeks to schedule the second round, also on the phone (which I was told would be in person). The position I was interviewing for went from senior associate to dedicated advisor. The second interview was super specific about the details of my most recent experiences in grad school. None of the questions were very difficult.

    Health Care Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Advisory Board in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Initially interviewed for one position months ago; never heard back until I reached out to the recruiter. I was told that the position was taken by an internal candidate, but then I was recommended for another position. Had 1 phone interview, about 10 days later 1 face to face interview in D.C. I felt that it went positive, especially given the short time I had to prepare for the interview (case type question, plus a powerpoint). Heard back 6 days later via email that I did not get the position. Asked for feedback, no response.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    The day starts with a very informal get-to-know-you breakfast between candidates and current employees. There is a tour of the beautiful office space and two ensuing interviews. The first is 2-on-1 and the second is 1-1. Both interviews were very straightforward and showed how interested the company is in assessing if the interviewee is a good fit. Everyone was very welcoming and relaxed, and the overall experience was very positive.

    Coordinator/Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was asked to interview weeks later. When I had my initial phone interview she mentioned me considering a different role. So I interviewed on the phone for both..not really prepared for the second one...

    Two weeks later: In person interviews, all 30 minutes but multiple rounds. I met so many people in 3.5 hours and each round comprised of people from the two different departments mentioned on the phone.

    Then I was called back a second day to come in and do another round of interviews. Then a week later called on the phone to do one more phone screen.

    They said they would let me know by the beginning of the year and I heard nothing. I finally started looking at other places and accepted a job offer elsewhere. And a week later got an email to interview for an even different position.

    Disorganized to say the least.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Was sent an email within a week to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was not difficult asked a series of behavioral questions. Seemed like they were reading off a script and did not seem genuinely interested in my credentials or interest in the company.
