I applied online and interviewed at Advisory Board.
Interview Details –
Short story: I had a phone interview, but that's as far as it went.
Detailed story: I feel like this was a complete JOKE and I didn't get a fair deal out of this. So they e-mailed for a wanting to do a phone interview. Despite the fact that I tried to be flexible with my time, they didn't schedule it until 2 weeks after my initial email.
I'm thinking by then, they had already chosen a price, and I had become an afterthought. Anyway, the phone interview came. The questions were fairly standard and things others here have mentioned or you have heard in other interviews.
Basically, the only way you can mess up a phone interview is if you sound disinterested, really mess up your answers, or don't ask good questions (again uninterested). IMHO, I thought I did very well, and asked good questions (i.e what are the long term prospects of this position? etc).
I get an e-mail a week and half later saying I was not chosen. I wish I knew what the reason was, but I let it be.
Interview Question – None, standard questions Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in February 2011.
Interview Details – I passed the phone interview which was simply a walk through resume. For the second round, I flew to DC and had 2 1:1 interviews, one of which had a case to solve. The case itself was simple and had I practiced more, I would have easily solved it. The written test was another case type question, except I was more comfortable doing it. I haven't yet heard back from the company as to whether I got the job or not.
