    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    I was accepted for a behavioral interview for consulting, unfortunately during midterms week on the same day as another interview. The man who interviewed me was very nice and asked a few standard questions, but ended the interview with a few awkward questions about who else I was interviewing, how much I needed to do Consulting, and how much I need to work at Huron compared to other firms. I was told I would receive a call by 7pm the same day as my interview, but never received a call, and assumed accordingly that I was not invited to the Behavioral and case interviews that would take place the following day.

    Interview

    I applied through campus recruiting. There were two behavioral interviews. There was no formal case interview with any substantial math- I was allowed to use a calculator. Interviewers were nice, but tired. They didn't make it seem too exciting to work for Huron.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    I attended the University's Business Career Fair in the fall seeking a summer internship. The Recruiter mentioned to apply for the position in the winter time and that applications for the summer internship program were due by January. The program has a 3 round interview process. The first round is one 30 minute behavioral style interview. The second round is a 90 minute interview broken down into one 45 minute behavioral interview, and one 45 minute case interview. The final round is an office visit and interview on site.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I interviewed on campus. I had two back-to-back interviews with an associate and manager. I believe this counted as my first and second round interviews. The first interview was a straight-forward behavioral interview. "Why Huron?" "Tell me about a time when..." type questions. The second interview was math-based and involved calculating hospital savings. YOU CAN USE A CALCULATOR which was a relief after prepping for other consulting interviews.

    I was invited back for final rounds about a week or so later. It was a relatively longer waiting process than other companies. Final rounds consisted of a lunch, two interviews, analyst panel, and talk with the CEO & CFO. Overall excellent process and a good variety of interaction. Don't let the conversational/informality of the day fool you, it is all still an interview! Be sure to prep lots of good questions for the panel and do your research. I heard back and received an offer the next day.

    Interview Questions

    • Referred to Huron values for final rounds. I.e. Tell me about a time you were passionate/pursued excellence.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Unable to negotiate, don't find out placement until december/later

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    1st round- 30 minutes, simple behavioral interview with questions about leadership, working on a team, and problem solving skills

    2nd round- 90 minutes, 45 minutes in another behavioral interview, very similar questions and 45 minutes in a case-like interview. The case was more of a conversation than an on-the-spot situation so be confident and answer to the best of your ability. The case was followed by an extremely easy word problem that involved basic calculations.

    • Given a problem that a client might have, then I was asked "make a list of information you would need to help start to tackle this issue"   Answer Question
