    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was rigorous, rather rushed though. Everything happened within a span of two weeks or so. First phone interview, typical behavioral questions, be prepared though, very big on STAR method. Got a call the next day to set up final interview in Chicago. Intense day, started with a Lunch then 4 back to back interviews of 45 minutes each, the main thing is to be personable and ask good questions, that is what they really want, really talk up Huron, do your research. One case study(capacity and how to manage it), AR questions, 4 behavioral questions, 2 informal sessions just to feel you out. Got a call the next day

    Healthcare Analyst Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    First round consisted of behavioral interview questions...but far beyond what I consider "normal" questions. They are much more detailed and specific. My interview experience here was not great. They were interviewing hundreds of people from my school on the same day which made the experience very awkward and very much like you're just a cog in their machine. I got the feeling from the start of the interview that the person interviewing me did not want to be there at all. I couldn't get out the door fast enough.

    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.
