Very Easy Interview

Principal Consultant Interview

Principal Consultant

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in March 2014.

Interview Details – I had 3 phone interviews, 1 was via Skype. Straight forward questions that are used to gauge your technical expertise and personality most to see if you fit in with the rest of the team. Everyone was very nice and did not make you feel uncomfortable during the interview process. First 2 interviews where with employees around middle management. Last interview was with senior management.

Interview Question – Nothing really like I said before questions were straight forward . There were no difficult questions. Do not lie about what you know and you will not have any problems.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No need to negotiation. I gave them the price range I was looking for and they gave me what I was looking for and more on the first try. No need for back and forth.

Regional Sales Manager Interview

Regional Sales Manager
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in May 2014.

Interview Details – The interview process was pretty standard. Initially contact by CS's internal recruiter who spent about 45 minutes with me for a phone screen. This was followed by hour long Skype with the Director of Sales which lasted about 90 minutes. The second interview was also a skype interview with the GVP of Sales and Marketing and this also lasted about an hour and 20 minutes. The final interview was supposed to occur in Reston at the HQ, but scheduling was difficult. Instead, it was a 1:1 face to face interview over dinner nearby.

Interview Question – The most difficult or unexpected question had to do with situations where I had to work with a client that was unhappy.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very straight-forward. No complaints

Specialist Interview

Specialist
Pleasanton, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in March 2014.

Interview Details – The interview process was relatively straight forward and short. It started with a phone interview with a recruiter. There was nothing out of the ordinary in terms of questions - a basic conversation about prior experiences, etc. The next step was an in-person interview with the hiring manager. Again, nothing out of the ordinary. It was a great conversation with a natural flow - didn't feel like an interview at all! Following my in-person meeting, I had subsequent phone conversations with a variety of folks whom I would be working with should I be offered the position. Each person had their own interview style but all were very professional, yet personal. The recruiter kept me informed of the status of the process at all times and was extremely responsive. Overall, it was a great interview experience that truly led me to accept the offer!

Interview Question – There weren't any questions that were difficult. I would say the most surprising element of the interview was when one of the interviewers asked me to have a mock phone presentation as though he was a prospect and I was selling him something.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was a negotiation on salary and start date.

Senior Principal Consultant Interview

Senior Principal Consultant

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in November 2011.

Interview Details – Interview process was awesome. I completed three phone interviews, with one being the person who would be my mentor. The same day I completed my last phone interview, I was contacted by HR with my offer, in addition to the individual explaining the employer benefits, which are awesome.

I must say, everyone I spoke to during my hiring and interview process confirmed that Collaborative was the company to be employed for.

Interview Question – During the interview process, the most difficult question was around technical experience, in which I was coming from a more functional background. However, the best approach is to always relate what you currently do to what they are asking, and everything will be fine!   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The offer was what I was expecting from being a first time consulting, so I was pleased with the initial offer.

Principal Consultant Interview

Principal Consultant
Reston, VA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in April 2013.

Interview Details – Very quick process start to offer less than two weeks. All interviews were done over the phone. I spoke with three very knowledgeable people that loved what they did. They didn't, sugar coat the position they discussed the pros and cons and we truly interested in filling the position with the person that had the skills and would fit into the company culture,

Negotiation Details – No negation.

Principal Consultant Interview

Principal Consultant

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Collaborative Solutions.

Interview Details – Collaborative makes the interview process simple. They were prompt and attentive to any question and went out of their way to make it comfortable for me. Every employee I spoke with (I had 4 separate phone interviews) was extremely professional and courteous. I could tell that each employee loved what they did and loved the company!

Interview Question – It is always difficult to express why you are leaving a good company. That was difficult for me.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Another opportunity came up at current company. Were it not for that, I would have gladly accepted their offer.
