    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at GP Strategies (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR via email by a very nice woman who was concientous about every aspect of my process as an interviewee and then I had a phone interview with her. After that I was scheduled for a face to face interview where I met with 3 people. It was the hierarchy of their team and two had come from other states. They were all 3 the nicest, most gracious and warm people. It was a really nice experience.

The in-house interview was straight forward. My interview was a conversation between the two people interviewing me. They don't ask you any trick questions.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Interviews were conducted over the phone. The recruiter did a nice job scheduling and coordinating the interviews. There were a few surprises around the number of people on the interview call and the style of questioning. Going forward, the interviewers should consider how to balance out the "realities" of the position with the benefits of a career at GP Strategies. They need to remember that while they are interviewing, the candidate is also interviewing them in terms of cultural fit and career opportunities.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer

    Interview

    Applied online, and was invited to sit with several other interviewees for a round-robin interview in the Alexandria VA office. We each got about 15 minutes to talk to three different people. The interviewers kept changing because they had to "put out fires" and other employees were constantly running around. Some interviewers hadn't even seen my resume. Wait times were long, and the process took a few hours (even though I only spoke to actual employees for about 45 minutes total). I thought it was disrespectful to the prospective employees who made the time and effort. A few weeks after the interview, I got a mass email from the Columbia MD office with a series of questions such as: How many years of experience do you have? (Uh... look at my resume!) What is your desired salary? (Didn't I tell you on the online application?) ...I just ignored the email, because the company had clearly proven to me that they had no respect for my time or effort.

    Interview Questions
