    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process is a three round process. I was a college recruit, and the first rounds take place on day 1 (only behavioral). You really have to stand out here because they are interviewing a lot of people. You will be called back for second rounds the following day. The second round has 1 case and 1 behavioral. Then you will be notified if you will be going to their home office (Atlanta) for their final rounds. If you get this then you practically have the offer.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    This is very competitive experience. First they interview all who apply. The 25 minutes first interview was behavioral and it encompasses these questions.
    1. Tell me a situation where you went above and beyond to solve a problem and showed commitment to a corporation.
    2. Tell me a situation where you used creative solutions to solve a problem..
    3. Tell me about a situation where your team member was not contributing and you had to pul some extra weight. (Be careful here as this is a trick question - try to say that you have always had great team mates and play down the situation).
    4. They will ask you about your interest.
    5. Why Huron
    6. Why Healthcare and Reveune cycle. Be specific and put it along side how its suppose to reduce the cost and thus help hospitals save money and then actually save the patient money.

    Interview Questions
    • Just know that you will be traveling every week and you are expected to have dinner with your coworkers. They used the STAR method as in S = Situation, T = Task, A = Action, R = Result. They will ask you behavioral question and ask you to answer them so please be aware that you should frame your responses in the STAR method to advance forward. I didn't make it after 1st round since I really didn't research the company or the role as I didn't want it, but wanted the interview experience. This was at Vanderbilt University. This is not a great place for experienced hire, but it seems a good start for Entry Level position. No calculator was needed as this was primarily behavioral.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    On campus recruiting. Applied and got offered an interview about a week later. It may have helped that I spoke to an associate at the job fair, their information session and also emailed the recruiter. The interview was fairly simple, first round is always solely behavioral. I was asked 2 similar questions that revolved around a difficult situation and what I did to reach a solution. The interviewer was very interested in seeing a step-by-step process of solving said issue and what my role was in this process.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted within a couple of days of referral. They are very quick. Phone interview was a couple standard behavioral questions. "Discuss a time you had to solve a very complicated problem and the steps you took to work through it" was one. They also asked the standard, "Why Consulting? Why healthcare? Why Huron?"

    Manager - EDiscovery Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview Details

    I have no idea what working for Huron would be like as I was unable to secure an offer. However, if it is anything like the interview process, you might be best to look elsewhere.

    Don't quit looking while you are interviewing--in short, your candidacy is likely to suffer death-by-interview. It was a brutal, eight-week-long process--five (5) interviews in all. I say death-by-interview because, with that many interviews, the chances you run into someone who just doesn't like you goes up exponentially. And the law of averages is NOT your friend here--I won over four of the five people I interviewed with, but still got shot down as a result of ONE person who, you guessed it, just didn't like me.

    Interview Questions
    • The fifth of the interviews mentioned above was billed as a 'functional knowledge' assessment--supposedly a short, fact-pattern-style test meant to assess mastery of necessary skill sets. Trouble is, the fact pattern I was given dealt with an area of their business I had no direct experience with and was NOT mentioned in the original job listing.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very straightforward process but one that requires patience. The process was very thorough and exhaustive. Be knowledgeable of your resume and experiences and be prepared to talk about how you can be value added to the organization. The people are all very friendly and looking for those that are easy to work with but analytical.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty typical process. The time from stat to finish can be long so be cognizant of that.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Fair offer that required no negotiations.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview Details

    The process could have been handled more professionally. On the day of onsite interview, one of the interviewer didn't even show up at the office and I was not informed. I suspected not even the person who coordinated it knew about it. Then I was given a number to call the interviewer but the reception was bad and I was interrupted a few times.

    Interview Questions
    • Scenario questions such as "how would you handle changing priorities" or "how would you go about starting the job?" Answering those questions doesn't necessarily mean anything at all. Plus, the questions suggested they're hiring an experienced employee to do entry-level job.   Answer Question
