    Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AlphaSights.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, very straight forward. You submit your resume and write a little 200 word response on their core values. After about a week you get an email with the link to the first round of video interviews. Again pretty straight forward, you record webcam responses to basic behavior questions. You are given 30-90 seconds to answer these so be prepared...but not too prepared...try to sound conversational. The 30 second first question really threw me off, I spent a good amount of time preparing but I think I just automatically assumed the first question to give me 60 seconds, it didn't. Threw me off for the next question or two but no need for regrets now.

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    Process begins with an online application. Within about 10 days of submitting the app you get an invitation to "interview" online where you record yourself answering 7-8 questions, each with a 30-60 second time limit. Weird talking to a computer and not a person so definitely practice your answers before you do it.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AlphaSights.

    Interview Details

    Applied through on campus recruiting and heard back within 24 hours. Initial interview was a video recording and if you scroll through these questions you will be well prepared. Second interview was a google hangouts. Mostly questions about resume- why I picked my school. Interviewer seemed very uninterested from the start of the interview. Seemed like I was the 10th person she interviewed that day and she wasn't that interested in my past experiences. Still in interview process.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an app online and heard back within a week for a video interview with nobody on the other end. They asked questions and I was given a certain amount of time to answer. The questions were straightforward and rather easy. I was then contacted for another Skype interview with two associates.

    Very simple process. I applied through my school and got an answer back in around 3 weeks. They requested a video interview, which was basic to say the very least.
