    Client Director Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Everest Group in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I received a call from an HR recruiter. He asked many questions regarding my current sales position, target numbers vs actuals, and expectations for my new job. In my opinion, the first was the most rigorous of all the interviews as the recruiter was screening applicants for a fit.

    My second interview was with the hiring manager. He inquired about my sales methodology, my expectations, how I plan on developing business, and understanding my sales style. Then he explained his expectations for this position and invited me to Dallas for final interviews.

    The last round consisted of 5 separate, back to back interviews, with various leadership to represent different divisions of the business. They flew me into Dallas just for the day for the final round. It was very casual and conversational. The objective is primarily to understand how you might work with other divisions and if you would be a good fit for their corporate and sales culture.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Everest Group in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    First Round (2 interviews) was held at my business school and the second round (4 interviews) at Everest's office in Dallas. First round had only cases but the second round was more behavioral in nature. The firm is very small and the culture means a lot to them.
    Also they want people to have a thorough understanding of the outsourcing industry and the ecosystem. They also are very specific about people having interest in operations strategy.
    In terms of people, they are extremely humble. The firm is small and everyone knows everyone and the work culture is very collegial.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Everest Group in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly quick, considering the selective nature of their process. I had an initial phone interview with the head recruiter. Following the initial phone screening, I had an hour long phone interview with the hiring manager. There were lots of "what if" type questions. I was flown to Dallas to engage with management. There were 4 one-hour interviews with various mambers of the executive team. It took about 2 weeks to finally get an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Everest Group.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the Analyst position in the Global Sourcing team at Everest Group in Delhi. Although they were a bit dubious while accepting my application because my educational background was unique and I didn't have relevant work experience, they agreed to interview me. I had six rounds of interviews out of which five were case interviews. I enjoyed most of the interviews as my interviewers encouraged out of the box thinking and new ideas.
