I interviewed at Altman Vilandrie & Company in September 2012.

Interview Details – On-campus recruiting led to a first round interview and successful completion led to an in-office final round interview. Final round had 4 cases and lunch included. Cases were on a variety of technology and energy questions and markets.

Interview Question – The cases were fairly standard and the personality questions were within consulting norms.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Altman Vilandrie & Company in October 2013.

Interview Details – Two rounds of interviewing. First round consisted of two in person interviews on campus, both case based. Both cases were quantitative and asked to develop and/or analyze graphs. Second round was at the San Francisco Office. One behavioral and three case interviews. Interviewers were very friendly and helpful. Final round seemed relatively informal compared to other firms, in a good way.

Interview Details – Had a first round interview - 2 parts. Each 30 minutes with a fit part and a case part. The first interview was a stress interview so the interviewer purposefully tried to fluster me. The first case was about high tech market sizing and the second about a charity business model.

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Altman Vilandrie & Company.

Interview Details – Went through recruiting at my university. First did resume drop, then received on-campus interview. The interview was split into two parts: behavioral and then case interview. For each part, you met with a different interviewer. The behavioral interview included common questions like walk me through your resume, why av&co, etc. The case interview was also not too complex, but definitely more quantitive than some other case interviews I have gone through.

Interview Question – Why are you interested in technology and where do you think the future of technology is moving towards?   View Answer

Interview Details – 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.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Altman Vilandrie & Company in October 2011.

Interview Details – 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.
