    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Huron Consulting Group in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The in-person interview lasted exactly 30 minutes. We spent 5 minutes on introductions and talking about the position, there was a 5 minute test, and then we spent the final 5 minutes on my questions leaving the interviewers exactly 15 minutes to ask me questions about my fit for the position.

    Interview Questions
    • The test was impossible. "Take this document and make it better." No other instructions, not advice on what direction to take it.   Answer Question

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Ann Arbor, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Huron Consulting Group in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Sent in resume, got called for interview taking place the next day (12 hours from phone call).

    First two interviews were all fit, and couldn't be more basic questions. They tend to compound their questions (i.e. ask 7 at one time in paragraphs), so structure certainly matters.

    Also, appearance and superficial characteristics are HUGE here. The interviewer told me I didn't progress to the next round because I was too loud.

    • Tell me a time when you decided to break a commitment or rule for the good of a project or goal?   Answer Question

    Consulting Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied 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.

    Interview Questions
    • Basic background questions about my resume and experience. A few questions about how I would handle day-to-day tasks and problems.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Huron Consulting Group in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed in November of 2011 and had a really pleasant experience. Everybody I met at the interview was friendly and seemed to be more interested in getting to know me than trip me up. The best thing the company has going for it is its culture and people, and this definitely shows during the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • There is a math component to the case question. If you don't know basic algebra you will not be able to answer correctly.   Answer Question

    Healthcare Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview Details

    Campus recruiting consisted of one on-campus first-round behavioral interview, two second-round interviews on campus the following day (one behavioral, one case study), and two on-site informal interviews a few weeks later.

    Round one was basic interview questions (why consulting, why this company, etc.). Nothing surprising here. Round two is the difficult one, consisting of an operational case study, a brief mathematical quiz, and a behavioral interview in which you discuss how your background and experiences align with the company's values.

    Round three is highly informal, and I believe most (if not all) final round interviewees received offers.

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Huron Consulting Group in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The entire process is a 3 part process. During campus recruiting they brought me in for an initial interview, which was very basic why Huron, why consulting?? I got asked back for the second interview where they gave me a problem solving, technical question and also continued deeper into finding out who I am type of questions. I did not make it to the final interview, which would have been at their headquarters in Chicago.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me a technical question regarding what to do if there were limited documents for a company you were consulting, how would you find out how to better develop this company??   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was followed with a phone a week or two later. The phone call was to to get a feel of who you are and what your background is. After the phone cal, you'll be scheduled with a group interview. The group interview went fairly well I thought. The recruiter called me three times thinking I got the job. When I got called him back, he told me they decided to go with someone else. I wish they could've sent this in an email instead of calling me three times in one hour
