    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at AlixPartners in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to Alix through some colleagues who were familiar with the firm. They are creating a new consulting division and they were looking for new talent. I was contacted by someone in HR in Dallas with the message "somehow your CV landed on my desk".

    Interview Questions
    • Alix has a decentralized interview process. HR isn't competent to handle senior hires. Extended process with little communication. Long testing and poor expectations around next steps or preparation for the upcoming interviews. I was asked to spend almost two days in testing and interviews. When I mentioned that I needed to return to work for some client meetings, they appeared offended. I found the process unpleasant and the HR team was often rude in their communications with me.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AlixPartners in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I found the position through a LinkedIn posting. I was living in another city when I applied and it took a few weeks to coordinate for a 1:1 interview. After meeting the approval of the entire team, I was given an offer. The consultants go through a more difficult interview process as they are all highly experienced and have extensive backgrounds to cover.

    Interview Questions
    • If you were in the position, put together your ideal plan and bring it to the 1:1 interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated early in the interview process and was able to secure a comfortable number. I cannot speak for the consulting professionals who recieve other forms of compensation.
