Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in February 2008.
Interview Details – Interview was very well organized. The recruiter and recruiting team have a well-run process which includes a phone interview, then several 1:1 meetings with various levels of the consultancy (manager to VP). It also has case studies to test your knowledge. Hitachi also does a lot of behavioral interviewing. Very very well run!
Interview Question – Part of external consultancy includes proposing new projects/selling? Tell me about a time when you had to sell an idea, etc... Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Negotiations were quick and reasonable. Able to negotiate sign-on bonus.
Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in November 2010.
Interview Details – 1st round campus interview with a Manager
If invited to next round, you are invited to their downtown seattle office (Convention center) for a full day interview session. This consists of 3 30 minute interviews, usually with a Senior Vice President, a director and a manager.
- 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.
Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
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

The process took a day - interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in November 2011.
Interview Details – The interview process occurred on campus and was 1/2 hour long. All of the questions were very basic. Things like "describe a time you worked in team and there was an issue that arose". Pretty much the standard questions.
