    Talked to a recruiter at the career fair and applied through my school's career services website. Had a first round interview on campus with a Senior Associate and a Consultant.

    Interview Details

    It was an on-campus interview. The interviewer was very friendly and the style was more like to confirm what you have done based on your resume. Also there were several behavioral interview questions. In the end, the interviewer double-checked that if you need their sponsorship of visa or not. And you may ask the position-related questions. Overall, the experience was very nice!

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Berkeley Research Group.

    Interview Details

    Standard university interview process. Career-fair followed by an on-campus interview which consisted of behavioral questions - all of the candidates selected for this round were qualified so the interviewers seemed to be looking for individuals who would mesh well with their office. After making it through the first round of interviews, I was flown to the specific office location which I requested. I ended up talking with 5+ directors and principals, each for around 30-45 minutes. By the end of the day I was exhausted, but having the opportunity to talk with everyone helped me decide whether or not it was a good fit for me. Each interviewer asked behavioral/get-to-know-you questions, although several asked technical questions (statistical/financial based). You must be able to articulate reasons why you want the job and be able to give an in-depth description of each line on your resume.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Berkeley Research Group.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very casual and low key. I had a connection to the company via a family friend, and because of this, the application process was pretty straight forward. I went in for an interview and it was purely behavioral, with many just get to know you questions. I liked the ease and the comfort I got from interviewing with this company. I would definitely recommend giving it a shot!

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was, if I had to recruit business for this company right now by making cold calls, what would be my pitch?   Answer Question

    interviewed at Berkeley Research Group in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through campus recruiting and interviewed on campus. Interviewer was very nice but I felt that he decided what he thought of me within the first minute or so. Questions were typical and addressed my resume, but I felt like he was just going through the motions to say that he'd talked to me. Had a good conversation, but emerged from the interview with a gut feeling that I wasn't what they were looking for and that I wouldn't be a fit for the company.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Berkeley Research Group.

    Interview Details

    Had the first round interview on campus. No case, just regular get-to-know you type interview questions. Second round was on site comprised of 4 one on one interviews along with lunch with two current associates. The interviews were also not case based but you need to stress your data management skills and why you think you want to work there.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work here? Why economic consulting? What has your experience been with data management? Why should we hire you?   Answer Question

    The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Berkeley Research Group.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews, 60 minutes each. Offer letter consisted mostly of legal disclosures and commitment to confidentiality rather than job requirements and expectations. Interviews were casual but professional, and were a good reflection on the company and its processes. What you see is what you get; both interviews accurately reflected the culture of BRG.
