    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at C1 Consulting (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    (1) Phone interview for fit (2) Skype interview consisting of online skills assessment, case study and situational

    The process was fine. Phone interview was good, I had a good sense of culture and fit with the firm. Phone interviewer has been with firm for 3 years and spoke compellingly about the firm. Second interview was so-so; interviewer was not very experienced in recruiting and not as well versed in expectations or work the role would fill.

    Consultant, Market Research Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 10+ monthsinterviewed at C1 Consulting.

    Interview

    Interview process was strange with a required Skype interview even though I could have easily gone to the office. Interview questions were largely behavioral but also very skeptical of my ability. Interview process did not make clear the work expectations in terms of schedule. I made the mistake of assuming normal business hours. Huge mistake.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at C1 Consulting (Summit, NJ) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter in September 2014 on Linkedin. Went through the general motions over the next 2 months: informational phone screen, a Skype Interview (online standardized assessment and a short case), and finally an in-person interview (case studies, behavioral questions, presentation) on site, which included lunch with the whole NJ office. I found that very interesting and I felt very welcome. Company paid for overnight accommodations.

    Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at C1 Consulting (Boston, MA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Multi-stage interview process consisting of preliminary phone screen with recruiter, online exam (very easy), phone case interview (market sizing), in person interview, and a meeting with managing director. There were generally a large number of touch-points. Case interviews were focused on pharmaceuticals and ability to read/interpret graphs. All in, I found the cases to be easier than some other firms. On site interview was in a rural suburb of NYC- not ideal for traveling to.

    Overall, I found the Boston-based team to be great, but my process was split between Boston and other offices (and a third-party recruiter). I found the organization to be disorganized as a result.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at C1 Consulting in October 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiting company on behalf of C1. After completion of my skills assessment and case interview, I received absolutely no communication from C1 or the recruiting agency despite multiple follow-ups for several weeks. It doesn't matter that they don't want to move forward, but I would appreciate a quick response. But, nothing. Horrible company to work for from what I have heard

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at C1 Consulting (Atlanta, GA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted an application online and was contacted by a recruiting firm a few weeks later. The firm set up a phone interview and then a Skype interview. The Skype interview took place a few weeks after the phone interview and consisted of a skills test, then viewing, interpreting, and correcting slides with various information on them. I also submitted a writing sample.

    After passing the phone and Skype interviews, I was set up with an in-person interview where I was flown to Atlanta and met with all of the upper management in the office (two people). I then gave a presentation on my graduate school research. We had lunch and then I left. About a week later I was called by the branch owner with an offer.
