    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Most efficient interview process ever. I applied online, heard back from them via email within a week. Had a phone interview the next week and went in for the in-person interview the week after.

    Questions are pretty standard...they definitely have a script that they pretty much stick to.

    Questions:
    Why your college?
    Why your interest in healthcare?
    What drew you to the Marketing associate position?
    What is your understanding of the position?
    How would you describe ABC?
    Describe a position you've had that makes you best qualified for this position.
    Weakness?
    What do you think your biggest challenge would be in this position?
    What motivates you?
    Describe a situation where you had to use presentation skills.

    ABC conducts a speedy and professional interview process. They seem to have an excellent HR department that was accessible and helpful throughout the process. I had four interviews: two over the phone, and two at their HQ. The interviews, while not especially difficult, seem to be based on fit. The interviewers we very friendly and really want to get to know you as a candidate; i.e. questions about personal traits, interest in the industry, and communication skills.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Advisory Board in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The phone interviewer basically read from a script of questions (someone in another glassdoor review listed the exact questions and exact order that I was presented with in my interview). Basically what you like about your university, what advice you would give to make the university better, why you chose it, what your understanding of the company was etc. Definitely read the company information before the interview as I'm sure they have a rubric format for candidate evaluations. Don't be put off by the dry tone, I got the second round and my interviewer could not be less engaging.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Advisory Board in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Contacted for a phone interview where they read off a series of questions like describe a challenge you had to overcome, when was a time you failed at something what was the outcome and had did you deal with it. very straight forward and sounded like they were reading from a script. At the in person interview it was a panel of two interviewers that read off similar questions to the phone interview and took note as you talked, then they left and two more people came in that pretty much asked you the same questions, i guess to see if your answers varied.

    This was an on campus recruiting interview. It was behavioral and consisted of questions like walk me through your resume etc. The two women who interviewed me were really young and a little unprofessional. It was not a good experience.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Most of the questions that are listed for on this page for the Marketing Associate role were asked. Don't get concerned when during the phone interview it sounds like the interviewer is not enthusiastic. They are reading off a pretty specific set of questions. The in person interviews were much the same. A set of questions that you were asked by both interviewers. Make sure to take notes during the interview so that you don't answer the second person's questions without relating the new information you learned.
    When they say two weeks they mean. I was contacted for the final interviews and the offer exactly two weeks from the day. The most important thing is to be honest and show that this is something that you are passionate about and something you are willing to put in the work to learn about.

    The process took 3 days - interviewed at Advisory Board in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    After going through the full interview process (including an in-person interview at the SF office), I was told that decisions would be made by the end of December/early January. I emailed the interviewers I spoke with in late December just before the holidays to connect again, and did not get a response. I have still not heard back from anyone, and it has been more than a month since my interviews were completed (I'm not holding my breath). I don't mind not getting an offer, but at least I would know where I stand if that had been communicated to me. After the company had made a relatively good impression on me early on in the process during the phone interviews, I do not feel the same way emerging from the whole thing. Based on the lack of communication/follow-through/professionalism, I am glad to not be working there. Good luck!

    Interview Questions
    • Why did you pick your college? (This was not difficult, but rather just plain silly given how long ago that decision was made and given that there are so many other ways to gauge decision-making skills based on four years of going to college and all of the internships/jobs/extracurriculars during that time.)   Answer Question
