I applied through college or university - interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in October 2012.

Interview Details – Started with an on campus interview followed by a second round of interviews. The second round of interviews was a full day. The morning session consisted of multiple behavioral interviews with management as well as a case interview. The case interview was more strategic and less financially based. The night session was a team case question followed by a presentation.

Interview Question – Question about solving a business problems with pirating of their content. Whether it was worth it to pursue lawsuits, send letters, etc.   Answer Question

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about yourself -- strengths, weaknesses, experience   View Answer
  • If you are technical, be ready to answer technical questions...   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I only had one offer so didn't have much leverage during negotiation. If you have multiple offers, use it to get a better deal. And don't fall for the "everybody calling you and telling you how important you will be to the team"... Consultants are notorious for this.
