GDE Interview

GDE

I applied online and interviewed at Frost & Sullivan.

Interview Details – After resume & cover letter screening, I was invited for an interview.
Five candidates were interviewed in the same room. (I heard more than 30 candidates were called up for an interview.)
Interview questions were basic stuffs - self introduction, resume follow up, etc.
The position was more focused on sales side rather than research or analytic skills. (as it was in Asian countries, it seems like they prefer male for this position - in fact all actual team members were male...)

Interview Question – Imagine yourself as an employee at Frost & Sullivan, and introduce F&S to clients.. (act it out)   Answer Question

Events Coordinator Interview

Events Coordinator

I applied online and interviewed at Frost & Sullivan.

Interview Details – I had a phone screen with a recruiter which went very well. After about a week, I was brought in for an in person interview with a member of Events team. They said they would get back to me within the next two weeks. After following up numerous times, they never responded to any of e-mails to let me know whether I was no longer being considered. I found the process very disorganized and I would not apply again considering how I was treated the first time.

Interview Question – How do you keep yourself organized on event day?   Answer Question

Senior Manager Interview

Senior Manager

Interviewed at Frost & Sullivan

Interview Details – Several conversations - with free-flowing questions. Some by phone, some in person. Deep drill down on past successes and failures. A few "have you ever..." questions. Personable interviewers, but not always familiar with industries outside of their own. Would be best to have thought through the 'standard' consulting interview questions ("describe a time when you communicated bad news...")

Interview Question – "why are you no longer with ____"   Answer Question
