    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Centric Consulting.

    Interview

    Went through three separate interviews. 1 technical, 2 behavioral interviews. Technical interview was average to difficult. Mostly a white board interview. Other interviews were with HR and Partners of the firm. The over all process took over a week. The behavioral interviews are to check if you are the right fit for the firm. There is a lot of focus on being the right cultural fit. There aren't really any wrong/right answers for such questions. It helps to be clear with future plans.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Centric Consulting.

    Interview

    This was actually my "second" interview with Centric. My first interview went nowhere since the first recruiter was swamped by having to screen so many resumes and interviews. I complained and got a different recruiter to look over my resume. Carmen was very professional and is a rare gem in how a professional and cordial recruiter should be in the IT industry. Unfortunately, I was unable to get to the next steps since Centric, like every other company, is looking for that proverbial purple squirrel or perfect candidate. Another problem is that they post generic positions on their website and when it comes down to specifics, one finds out later that they were looking for something much more specific with different skillsets.

    Interview

    Went through a series of interviews meeting many people in the Cleveland office. Nothing to out of the ordinary, they just wanted to make sure you are a good fit for their business. After finishing my last interview I heard back from them fairly quickly. Just do basic research about their company and make sure it is the type of place you are looking for.

    Interview

    Like many companies you have a screening interview followed by multiple other interviews. What is different at Centric is that the multiple other interviews don't take you through a defined process with HR. Instead, you keep meeting with your future peers as well as the leadership in the office until 1. both sides are comfortable that there is a good match and 2. Centric has some client work lined up for you to start delivering on day 1.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult for me was expressing where I wanted to be in 5 years when I am not sure about all of the opportunities available   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiating. I was informed they thought the offer was fair for my skills and admittedly it was in line with other offers I had.
