    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Altman Vilandrie & Company (Boston, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I sent in a cover letter and resume through an employee connection, had a brief intro call with the Intern hiring manager, and then proceeded to have a first round phone interview. The first round consisted of 2 phone interviews, which were 45 minutes long, part behavioral and mostly case interview. The final round was in the office, and was two 45 minute behavioral/case interviews again. In general, the cases were fairly straightforward. They were always about the TMT industry, but still S&O cases.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Altman Vilandrie & Company (Boston, MA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Employee referral, phone screen with hiring manager, phone interview with one interviewer, second round in office with two interviewers, final round in office with three interviewers. The whole process took about 5 weeks, which was excruciatingly long given that I was in the area looking to start immediately, and they were looking to employ immediately. Six case interviews in total. No behavioral/fit questions beyond "tell me about yourself" and "why do you want to work here," which was slightly unnerving after so many cases. All six cases were focused on Telecom, Media, and Technology. Everyone I met was very nice and professional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Altman Vilandrie & Company (Boston, MA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Campus recruiting had 1:1 interviews that were case-based; met with 2 people (VP level and consultant/analyst level). Fairly straightforward cases with tech/telecom focus; interviewers helped to walk you through it.

    Invited for superday at their Boston HQ. 1 behavioral interview with short case and then 3 cases. Most cases not hard, though you did need to think about them. I think the hardest thing was endurance--4 case interviews is a lot! Each one took approx. 40 minutes and they were back-to-back, so by the last one I was pretty tired.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Altman Vilandrie & Company (Boston, MA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Phone screening interview to begin, then a more in depth interview with to associates a few days later. Very involved process. If you use Case Interview.com or any of those other books/websites, it won't work. Thats more for Bain, McKinsey etc. They know exactly what they're looking for in their answers. If you are a math major you're in good shape.

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Altman Vilandrie & Company (Boston, MA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a headhunter about the position. I interviewed with HR first in a 45 min interview. She asked the basic questions about walking through resume and what I was looking for. Having passed that stage she set up a case interview with a consultant on their team. The case interview lasted about 1 hour. The first 20 min the interviewer talked about the firm and job. That took up about 20 min. As a result, I felt rushed during the case. It was about a telecom issue with international implications. How to expand the business. Choice of target markets, buy or build infrastructure topics were all discussed. I launched right into my solution. This was my mistake. I should have spent more time asking clarifying questions. The topic and case itself were quite easy. I learned from the process to be more thoughtful and deliberate in doing case interviews.

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Altman Vilandrie & Company (Boston, MA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone screen, which was a pretty simple case with a small quant component (calculating customer value). I passed this, then went to the second- and third-round combo day, during which I think I was a little too relaxed. Altman is a very type-A company, and they look for that kind of personality.
