    Application Details

    The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions.

    Interview Details

    One phone and in person interview with recruiter. One technical interview over phone. One face to face with director and another with owner. 4 interviews total over the course of 3 weeks. Complete waste of time. They have no interest in building a team or have active projects. They are window shopping and trying to get a feel of the Dallas job market while building a new office.

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone screen with a talent recruiter who found my profile via linkedin. I then had a hour call with one of the hiring managers. I thought the call went pretty well given most of the questions were general PMP and Agile stuff I had done in my previous projects. He then informed me I would hear back from them within the week. I am yet to hear back

    Consultant (Project Manager) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Talked to one of their recruiters for about 35 via telephone. It seemed to be a good match but this was my first time considering a consultant position rather than FTE. Recruiter in Minneapolis office seemed to be interested in my apps development and deployment background. I interviewed in person a week later after reading a lot about them on this site. Daugherty recruiter said they have clients all across the metro but couldn't list any downtown Minneapolis. I was worried about getting stuck at Express Scripts or UHG as staff Augment and decided not to pursue a job with Daugherty.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Daugherty recruiter within one day of posting my resume on Monster. The recruiter was very friendly and informative about the company as a whole and the interview process. The recruiter was very flexible on scheduling the date/time for each of the (3) interviews which is Daugherty's current process. The first interview was with the recruiter, second was related to technical skills and third was with Line of Service Business Leaders. The technical interview was very detailed and thorough conducted by a very knowledgeable and skilled Senior Manager. The final interview was mainly learning more about the business philosophy, clients, consultant support and open Q&A. I felt very prepared for the interview process given the info that the recruiter provided originally on the company and the interview process in general.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions.

    Interview Details

    Over the phone interview with recruiter first to establish initial fit and desire to move forward. This was pretty simple and relatively comfortable. Face to Face interview with recruiter to discuss position, company, benefits, work culture, types of engagements, ect. Technical Interview with senior level management member in the same technical area as you are being hired for. Management interview with senior management team member. After hiring, expect a half day orientation with HR to policies and procedures, the at least the second half of your first day on "the bench", the waiting area before going to a client engagement. Depending on your skills and the current needs, you may be on the bench only the second half of your first day and go out to a client the next day, or you may be on the bench for a couple weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    1st contact HR phone interview, 2nd HR face-to-face to review resume chronology and ensure correct skills, 3rd with technical lead for in depth quiz on Business Analyst expertise, 4th with Hiring Manager for interpersonal and culture fit. They seemed disorganized and able to make a decision. I had substantial expert skills in more than one line of their business model lines and they had a hard time figuring out where I fit. They requested a 5th interview.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The initial recruiter called me after having found my resume on a job board and said the hiring manager would certainly be very interested in speaking to me, due to my extensive client facing job history and skill set. The complete opposite situation occurred. Rather than focusing on my skills as a successful project manager able to bring projects to completion on time and within budget, the guy only wanted to hear how I could generate more business (sales). Successful projects should bring follow-on business too, and count for something.

    Principal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oak Brook, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    They need to see you personally to make sure you "fit the image". This can be difficult since they are located a good distance from the city - especially if you are employed. The first interview was good and respectful of my experience and background. The second was face to face with the recruiter. The "next" was absolutely offensive. He classified himself as a "techno weenie" and was very impressed with himself. He was actually a developer but not really sure what his title was. At the principal level you should be interviewed by Directors - not line level developers. I ended the conversation because he insisted this was "supposed to be an interview"..not sure what he meant by that but the lack of professionalism and true business background was very transparent. I personally would not let this guy near my clients!
