I had 5 interviews over the course of about a month. 4 phone interviews and 1 in-person. Each interview focused on prior experience but also ideas on how my previous experience could help solve business problems. My hiring manager was very honest about what I should expect (the good and bad).
- There were no unexpected or difficult questions. It was all very practical and to the point. Answer Question
No negotiations, the offer they gave was what I asked to receive.

I applied through college or university. The process took a day – interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (New Delhi (India)) in July 2014.
I attended an off-campus drive recently. As it was an off-campus so the response was equally good, and the company officials were also overwhelmed with such response. The procedure included a written test, group discussion then a couple of personal interviews.
Round-1 Written Round
It included two tests - technical and verbal. Each test consisted of 50 questions, with 50 minutes for the verbal and 1 hour for the technical test.
The questions in verbal were very easy - like What is the full form of CV? yes, you read it correct! and etc..
The level of technical test was good. It included questions from C, C++, Java, DBMS, Cloud Computing, Big Data.
Out of 800 applicants - only 70 people were shortlisted for the next round.
Round-2 Group Discussion
Well 7 groups were formed of 10 candidates each and there were given a topic on the spot for discussion for about 12-15 minutes.
The topic was - How India is the land of great job opportunities as compared to various other countries?
The other topic, I could hear was - Salman Khan vs ShahRukh Khan.
A tip - before attending the drive, kindly acquire a piece of information about the number of offers the company is wishing to make. This will help you a lot in your preparation, as you'll prepare for clearing the rounds even if the cut-off goes high.
All the best!

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Seattle, WA) in October 2014.
I applied through the campus recruiting process. I did one 30-45min interview on campus with a senior manager. I then went to an all day interview at the Seattle offices where I interviewed with about 4 managers. I was taken out to lunch by 2 current entry level consultants. There was also a group portion where we were divided into small groups and responded to a business scenario to a group of potential "clients." The day was ended by a cocktail reception hour.

I applied through college or university. The process took a week – interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Seattle, WA) in November 2014.
Applied on the university job board. Got scheduled for an on-campus interview for 45 minutes where I went over my resume and cool side projects.

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Hyderābād (India)).
Please do not go for this company interview. It was a hoax interview. HR called and scheduled a interview on weekday. I went and for formality sake they conducted interview with most easy questions and asked me to leave.
- There was no difficult question. Very basic questions 1 Answer
