    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cornerstone Research.

    Interview Details

    I talked to a company representative at a career fair and applied online. The interview consisted of two 30 minute sessions with about 5 minutes of behavioral and 25 minutes of a case. This was the most enjoyable case interview experience I have had, as the cases were challenging but conceptual, so they didn't trip you up on arithmetic — it was just about intuition.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cornerstone Research.

    Interview Details

    I was emailed about receiving a phone interview and was asked to give my available times during the next week. A few days later, I received another email from the same employee saying I was not qualified enough for an interview. This was very upsetting and in my opinion, it was unprofessional to not go ahead with the interview I was promised.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cornerstone Research in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied thru campus career website and received an interview invitation via email. I got a phone interview as the email stated that they wanted to interview with more people than the on-campus interview slots provided.
    There were two interviews in the first round. The interviewers were nice to lead you to think in the right track. The behavioral part was longer than I expected and the case part was shorter. The second interviewer spoke toooooooo fast and she even twisted herself. I had to ask her slow down the pace...... Overall it's a nice interview experience. You won't feel humiliated.....

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cornerstone Research in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through on-campus recruiting. Two back to back case interviews 30 minutes each. One with a senior analyst (2 years in the firm) and another with an analyst (1 year in the firm). Both were real cases they've worked on in the past. The cases were fairly easy and both interviewers were friendly and willing to guide you to the right direction. They just want to see how you think/ analyze/ communicate. There weren't many behavioral questions.
