    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Product Specialist Interview

    Interview Details

    Being an out of state applicant, the interview processes was fairly long. It took me about a month to get through 3 phone interviews and then they flew me out for the final interview. The first 3 interviews were basic interview hr and tech questions about your past experience in the tech industry and dealing with customer support. The last onsite interview was broken down into 4 sections. First, was the Case Interview. Here I was given a problem and asked how I would solve it. The problem was that the ER of a hospital was having issues with their customers having to wait to long before being seen. The second interview was the Project Tools Overview. This interview was a basic description of the teams and software used at Huron. During this interview I was asked to create an easy join query and solve a brain teaser question. The third interview was a lunch interview. The last interview is with the Director of Product Implementation to find out if I would be a good fit within the company.

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    First Round: Two behavioral questions (read through all of these and you should be prepared) followed by the standard three: Why Huron? Why Consulting? Why Healthcare?

    Called back for the second round a couple of hours later

    Second Round: Divided into two parts, Behavioral and Case Study. The Behavioral was four questions that have all been mentioned on here. My strategy was to have about 8 STAR stories ready, and just bend them in one way or another to fit the questions. This strategy seemed to work pretty well. Be prepared to come up with things to say after you are done giving your answer because the guy interviewing me was typing my answers away on his computer and it would get awkward after I was done answering as he continued to slowly clack away. After that was a case study question. There was one math question after that was pretty elementary so if you got the interview you should have no excuse missing it.. The last question was how good you are with computers...?

    From what I understand getting the third round when they fly you to HQ essentially means you have the offer, they just want to meet you and make sure they didn't screw up.

    Interview Questions
    • The case study is most likely why I did not get the offer. I had relied too much on the overwhelming reports of the ER room/ Call Center case study questions. They threw a case study from their Legal division at me. I am unfamiliar with law firms and how they are structured so I stumbled through the whole thing. It was something about how their "discovery process" had high costs so they wanted to find a solution. So be familiar with all of their divisions and what they do and how their clients work, not just healthcare.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Huron Consulting Group in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university's career portal website. The case section was relatively simple as I recall - not too much math, but I can't remember what exactly the case was about. The behavioral questions were relatively run of the mill - "Tell me about a time when you showed ____ characteristic." All interviewers were very friendly.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the behavioral questions were too surprising if you prepared the usual topics beforehand (leadership, teamwork, successes, failures, etc.)   Answer Question

    I sumbitted an application online through our campus recruiting website. I had a phone interview which in which they asked me technical and behavior questions. After the phone interview I was invited for an on-site interview in their Lake Oswego office in Oregon. I had four interviews and I had a lot of technical and behavior questions. I didn't get the offer as they were looking for a highly advanced programmer.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to Huron Healthcare by my friend who is currently working there. I am about to go into the final round of interviews at the office in Chicago.

    The first round interview was with the Huron recruiter. Phone interview. Two behavioral - describe a time you went above and beyond and describe a time you took initiative in an organization. Also why consulting? why Huron?

    Second round interviews were in person. Four behavioral questions - leadership, problem with a team member, a time when something unpexted happened/something went wrong and you had to adjust, a time when you had to complete a task with a sense of urgency. The case study was a call center with too long of wait times. There was also a question on calculating A/r days. Interviewers asked general questions on why Huron, why consulting, why healthcare, at the end.

    Third round is the office visit. Will be a breakfast with other candidates and interviewers, two "discussions," and a chance to meet with a panel of analysts. I am going to Chicago this week for the third round.

    Interview Questions
    • The Huron behavioral questions are harder than the case study. Make sure to have STAR scenarios ready, preferrably those relating to something you did for an organization.   Answer Question
