    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Phone interview was around 30 minutes long, mostly behavioral interview questions. I was contacted by email for an onsite interview about a week later. The onsite interview was overall a good experience, I spoke with 3 managers, and they were all very courteous. I had to do a case interview for one of the interviews. They gave me an excel data set to analyze and create a powerpoint presentation.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Applied through college job portal. Initial phone interview and multiple round in-person interviews within one day at headquarters. Although they didn't initially specify how many interviews you would receive that day, it appeared that candidates who excelled received more interviewers. All interviewers were professional and cordial, yet strict and not very helpful in walking you through cases.

    Senior Research Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Advisory Board (Washington, DC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard. Had a 30 minute phone interview with HR, where mostly behavioral questions were asked. I was then scheduled for a second phone interview with a practice manager and this was more behavioral questions as well as a bit about my research history and why I wanted to work at ABC. After the phone call I had an hour to complete a writing assignment, which was kind of like a case study. I was then scheduled for an office visit where I had three interviews, two with practice managers and one with he managing director. In total I had about 4 case interviews, all relatively challenging but they did give great guidance throughout the course of the interview. I didn't get the job though so I think I didn't do well in the cases. But it was a good experience and great practice. This was my first ever consulting interview.
