    Interview

    1) I was invited by a recruiter to apply for a SharePoint consultant position based on their Dallas office. 2) I had one technical interview with a "Senior Architect", I was really surprised that some of the questions... were based on wrong technical decisions!!. 3) I had one interview with a manager. 4) Their recruiter called me to notify me that they will move with an offer after the onsite interview. 4) Onsite interview: They made me go to a coffee shop because they couldn't meet me at their office... first i was interviewed by a VP who was on the customer site...during one hour.. then by a director... it was very awkard that during the interview one of their clients entered the coffee shop and we had to move to a different table...

    Interview

    I met them on campus for a Career Fair. I, then, went to my university career website and applied and was asked for an interview. The process was not too difficult. They held one-on-one interviews on campus. Not many questions were asked, mostly just asking about my resume.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hitachi Consulting.

    Interview

    Hitachi Consulting was recruiting new graduates on my university campus. I talked to about four or five different representatives at a job fair, an information session, and my interview. I really liked all of the people that I met and thought that I would enjoy working with them. The interviewer started with the standard "tell me about yourself" and then asked several standard behavioral interview questions. The two questions that I remember most clearly were: "Tell me about a time when you had to deal with complaints." "Tell me about a time when you worked in a supporting role."

    Interview

    Got the interview through on-campus recruiting. I felt like they were looking for people with more technical skills/background. My major was in Economics so I didn't have any background in programming/databases and I think it definitely showed during the interview. Waiting to hear back. I was told I would hear back within the next few days whether or not I made it to the next round.

    Interview Questions

    • 1) What is a major challenge/obstacle that you have overcame? 2) Company X is a mortgage company. Currently it takes them 3 weeks to authorize a loan, while the industry standard is only week. How would you go about assessing the situation/going about finding a solution? (wasn't really a case question, just wanted to know how I would approach a problem). 3) How much experience have you had with excel?   Answer Question

    Interview

    Their hiring process is a personal interview on the spot and then they decide within the higher ranked employees in the company if the interviewer should get the open position. It is realively easy to get a job if there is an open position and you have the needed qualifications but if there is no open spot its almost impossible for them to open more positions even if they have many empty desks.

    Interview Questions

    • -Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Also asked conflict resolution questions with a mix of office ethics.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Mostly spoke to managers and directors about my experience. Interviews were very straightforward and there were not many trick questions. They were looking for people who could think on their feet and be able to handle many different scenarios. For junior level consultants they were mostly concerned about learning agility and technical skills.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was very unexpected or difficult, just talk about experience, be able to quickly adapt to environments.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate my salary by 5K, but mostly because I had prior work experience and a masters degree. Most C1/C2s were not able to do the same.
