    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Tokyo (Japan)) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I went to career forum that was organized in Tokyo, where Hitachi had a stall. It was a walk in interview type of a format. From the walk in interview the candidates were shortlisted and narrowed down. After that, you would be invited to their corporate office and go through one more round of the interview. Nothing new - pretty much the focus is on your resume.

    I interviewed on campus first with a Hitachi manager. Then the second round consisted of three interviews at the company site.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the interview questions were too difficult. One case question was "Create an algorithm to make a Sudoku board". This was challenging but as long as you display a favorable way of thinking and presenting your thoughts in an appropriate amount of time, you will do great, regardless of whether you actually solve the question.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not attempt to negotiate salary because the offer was the best I received. I was however able to extend my deadline in order to hear back from another firm.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hitachi Consulting.

    Interview

    Hired straight from undergrad. Position required 2 one hour on-campus interviews, a group interview (billed as social event), and a four hour in office interview. The on-campus interviews are behavioral, and are more of a way for the managers to get to know you. Be prepared to follow up with thank you notes - this scores you big points! Also be prepared to attend any of the on-campus Meet and Greet sessions.

    Interview Questions

    • Out of all of the other applicants, why should we hire you?   Answer Question

It was disappointing but it was a quick and honest interview process
