    Interview

    Multiple phone and face to face interviews. Hair drug test and background checks before interviews. Also a sit down along side a current Market Analyst. Nothing about the interview will raise a red flag till your first week. The tools given are useless.

    Interview

    The interview process was smooth and very efficient. Communication was great and it started with 2 phone interviews and led to a face to face in a high rise office building, very classy. Straight forward and honest answers from the recruiter. No hidden expectations. All that was said during my interview was truthful and came to fruition in my first 45 days on-boarding.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DB&A (Dallas, TX) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Four levels of interview for project managers. The phone interviews went very well and were easy. This is when you get to feel like you will enjoy working for this company. My interview with the CEO was one of the worst I have experienced. I was not at all sure I'd got the job. He was more interested in where I had worked than what I could do.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at DB&A (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    The process starts with a phone interview or email. Then usually a follow-up conversation. After that there is a in person interview with someone from the leadership team at a hotel meeting room in the city you live in. Manager who interviewed was very professional and honest about the position. They gave a lot of helpful information, and addressed any questions or concerns I had about the job.

    Interview Questions

    • The testing, they use the WPT. That was a little unusual because it's manual. They also have you write something, to see if you can make sentences and thoughts, I suppose.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There really is no negotiation for entry level consultants, but I am not sure about leadership positions?
