    Consulting Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Huron Consulting Group in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the whole process took around a month. The first two rounds were phone interviews with HR specialists. The third was an in-person interview with the hiring manager at Huron headquarters in Chicago. Very fair process. Nothing too surprising as far as questions were concerned. If you have interviewed anywhere before, you will know what to expect. Friendly interviewers who are basically trying to gauge your interest in the company and the role.

    Healthcare Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Huron Consulting Group in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Pretty simple and straight forward first round phone interview centered on get to know you and behavioral questions. Huron likes to present you with what they refer to as a "core competency", define the competency, and then ask you to detail a time in which you displayed the competency. Therefore, doing research on the firm's mission and values is a must before interviewing.

    Second round interview takes place in a Huron office and consists of two parts (each ~45 minutes): 1) more lengthy and detailed behavioral questions and 2) a case study.

    Experienced Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Huron Consulting Group in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Great transparency throughout the whole interview process. Long wait. First applied in September, didn't find out about final interview in Chicago until early December. Position I was interviewing for would have been almost 100% virtual (must live in one of their "approved living locations" if interviewing for 50-100% travel which was frustrating). Said I would have been a good fit for traditional consulting role, but I don't live in the right city. Kind of think they could get creative with that aspect of their recruiting as many great candidates don't live in New York, Chicago, etc. Seems like a good fit if you're unattached and can live wherever. Overall, really enjoyed the company and the interviewers (4 different people during final interview, one at a time.) Would reapply if I move.

    Interview Questions
    • You must know formulas for accounts receivable/how to calculate. One, sometimes two problems (AR buckets). Two problems if you get first problem wrong. Not difficult if you're prepared for it.   Answer Question
