Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Dallas, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Ciber.

Interview Details – Hounded by a desperate recruiter. Phone interviewed by someone who was running between flights in some airport. Hard to understand. 2d Interview with rambling scenario questions. Then dialog of "How soon can you start?" Then got an offer that I HAD to start next day -- though I said I needed two weeks. Not only start next day, but in-process on way to airport to client in another city. Front all travel yourself. Benefits (like crappy insurance) won't start for 30-90 days.... Take the job for the pay. Nothing else.

Interview Question – What sacrifices have you made for your career? Can you start tomorrow? You must start tomorrow!   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, just there demangs.

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Bellevue, WA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Ciber in March 2009.

Interview Details – I first met with the Area Director. He aksed me a series of typical interview questions (ie "tell me about yourself", "describe your strengths", "what are your weaknesses"). Next I interviewed with one of the senior consultants who had been working with the client for a few years. This was mostly a technical interview to test my skills and find out my thought process for solving tough problems. If you are going in for a business intelligence related interview, make sure you know ALL there is to know about the data warehouse life cycle, SQL query skills, functions, and ETL processes & lingo.

Interview Questions

  • Write a query that returns the first & last names (concatenated) of employees who have at least two direct reports and have been with the organization at least two years but not more than five; ordered last name   Answer Question
  • Describe a case where you would need to use a cursor to return records from a table.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotions - I was told up front the starting salary based on the budget approved by the client.
