    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BearingPoint (McLean, VA) in January 2009.

    Interview

    very difficult interview process, sometimes very confusing questions with no specific answers expected. More focused on behavior type of questions / answers. Not really into technical questions but more on general management and business development.

    Interview Questions

    • describe top 3 things you would like to improve on your weakness from your current job. and then they nail you down on your weakness... very bad attitude. Also they came up with some weird client scenario and asked me how would i respond if i was with the client at that time.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    no negotiations - take it or leave it. there was an offer and when discussing over the phone for a better pay, they would not negotiate. it was very difficult to negotiate with the person.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BearingPoint (McLean, VA) in October 2008.

    Interview

    The whole interview process itself consisted of 2 interviews, one on my college site and one in their corporate headquarters.
    The initial communications with the company was done through my college career site. Afterwards a 1:1 interview was set up with a senior project manager. The interview was set up to be casual, as to put less pressure on the interviewee. The interview itself was fairly simple, just behavioral questions and nothing tricky. The only question that might have been considered tricky was naming a movie, book, or show that you liked and how it motivates you.
    As for preparation for the first interview just know the general information about the company, but nothing technical is needed since all the questions are behavioral. Just be familiar with the company and your resume.
    After the first interview is done about 1-2 weeks I heard back from them for a second interview on site. Before the actual interviews take place you get a quick background presentation about the company and general information about how they do things. This is done with a group of people who are also there for their second interviews as well. After the presentation they have new hires come in to talk with the group in case there is any questions for them.
    The interview there consisted with talking with 2 other individuals who I believe were also senior project managers. The interview there was not much different from the first except less tricky and more on whether you actually want to work there and if you're a good fit. All the questions were behavioral. For preparation just be familiar with what the job actually entails, and be familiar with the company and your resume. One question I remember off the top of my head that wasn't about the resume was what I thought business analysts did, so all in all it was very simple.

    My perceptions of the people interviewing me are pretty positive. They seemed really easy to approach and talk to so there wasn't that much pressure during interviews. One problem I had was just contacting the general recruiter though. Emails don't work that well with the recruiter I and when I called usually no one picked it. Other than that the actual interviewers were nice people and easy to get along with.
    The office was also pretty nice, something you'd expect from a business in McLean. Nothing really special about it but it is a multi-floor building thats pretty large and has a nice view of the McLean area from upper levels.
    The work culture seems to be really easy going. No suits required when working in the building, just business casual. Though professional dress is required when meeting with clients. The new hires came and talked with us also seemed very easy going and nice.

    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at BearingPoint in April 2008.

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me and clarified some details on my resume. She set me up for an interview. At the interview I met with four individuals one at a time. It took approximately 2.5 hrs to interview with everyone. All interviewers were courtious and friendly. Make sure you wear your best suit, if you're not wearing a suit you might as well not come in. We wear suits on a daily basis and if you can't wear one to the interview they will not hire you!!! Make sure you know your resume front and back. The interviewer is a subject matter expert, they will know when you are stretching the truth.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate. When I initially talked to the recruiter she asked what my bottom line salary was. When they made me an offer, it was above what I expected to get. You can't negotiate the benefits because most of them are voluntary.

    IT Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at BearingPoint.

    Interview

    The application requires you to open an account on the company's website which looks very messy and difficult to use.

    After 3 weeks the HR sent me an email that they don't have any jobs for me without giving any further details. Waste of time.

    Masterand Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at BearingPoint.

    Interview

    Klassische Bewerbung per Mail und folgende Einladung zum Gespräch. Dieses erfolgte in netter Atmosphäre im Büro des zuständigen Managers, weitere Teilnehmer gab es nicht. Sehr angenehmes Gespräch ohne die klassischen Vorstellungsgespräch Fragen - stattdessen plauderten wir (beide!) über das was wir in unserem Leben schon so gemacht haben (von Studium über Reisen bis hin zur Familie). Schade war, dass es keine genaue Vorstellung zum Inhalt der Master Thesis gab. Ich hätte mir zumindest einen Rahmen gewünscht.

    Reasons for Declining

    Zu geringe Vergütung (500€ pro Monat). Das ist ein Standardsatz - da kann sich wohl auch kein Partner drüber hinweg setzen.

    Interview

    Applied online and had the first interview by phone.

    Next interviews were in person and contained analytic, logical and math tests. Then two different case interviews, one more quantitative and the other more qualitative. Got some data to analyze, nothing complicated.

    No personal interview, only case, felt a bit weird.
