Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Catapult Systems in April 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted by an internal recruiter by phone to discuss my resume that was submitted by an employee.
We discussed the usual things like present employment, was I interested in other opportunities. We also got into my qualifications and where I wanted my career to go.
At the end of the call we agreed that I would speak with a technical lead to further discuss my technical qualifications.
Several days later I spoke with one of the consulting team leads.
I never heard back from them after that.

Red flag #1: The technical interview turned into a competition of who knew more about technology, which I of course had to lose or otherwise jeopardize retaliation by the technical interviewer.
Red flag #2: No follow up or contact after technical interview, not even a good luck. I assume that my feedback was negative from the technical lead. Most companies will provide you with feedback on areas where they feel you need to improve but that wasn't the case here so maybe it wasn't negative feedback from the technical interview.
Red flag #3: The company was purchased in late 2013 by a Chinese company.

Interview Question – All of the technical questions were related to Microsoft technologies. Since they only deliver Microsoft solutions that might make sense to some but understanding the competitors technologies, good and bad, is also as important when having conversations with customers regarding solutions.

Business questions were typical questions such as how would you handle a customer in different types of scenarios.

There wasn't anything difficult about any of the questions.

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Houston, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Catapult Systems in September 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring process can be pretty lengthy but it's what's appropriate for the company. They go through the initial screening by the recruiter, then it's a phone tech screening and it ends with a series of 2-3 onsite interviews which can be a mix of technical/non-technical interviewers.

Interview Question – high level design/approach questions are what's askedly. Also, you would be asked what blogs/books you like.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was smooth. they are very straight forward.

Senior Lead Consultant Interview

Senior Lead Consultant
San Antonio, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Catapult Systems.

Interview Details – The process is a detailed one. The candidate is assessed on both technical and aptitude abilities. This proves to be able to determine one's ability to operate as a consultant and be able to learn at the rate consultants need to be able to learn at.

Interview Question – Theoretical questions about how to problem solve an insolvable situation. Its difficult to answer which is by design, but its hard to determine how much value this gives, if answers for the most part are correct.   Answer Question
