Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Industrial Economics Incorporated. (Boston, MA) in July 2015.

Interview

3 weeks after I applied, I went through a phone screen with one of the senior associates first, who explained the role and asked me some basic questions about my background. 3 weeks later, I went into the office for an in-person interview. This consisted of 3 1:1 interviews, a problem solving session on Excel, a presentation, and lunch with associates. The presentation was on my research project and was fairly straightforward. The problem solving session was about exploratory data analysis on two data sets of energy and temperature in Boston/Miami. I asked for feedback after my interview and the rationale behind not getting an offer was that I didn't clearly express interest in the role and that I didn't demonstrate sufficient evidence of critical thinking in the problem solving session.

Interview Questions

  • In the problem solving session, if you could not calculate the daily energy rate, what additional information/data would you need to do the calculation?   Answer Question
  • What kind of projects are you interested in doing?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Industrial Economics Incorporated. (Cambridge, MA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The process was very lengthy and the firm was slow to respond at all stages of the process. Hiring activity is reviewed by committee, which apparently does not meet with regularity. The company is also admittedly slow to add new jobs and prefers a reactive approach to contract demand. The company repeatedly missed their own deadlines in delivering decision notifications.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were standard, relating to why you are a good fit, goals, and behavioral interviewing (e.g. tell me about a time when you missed a deadline, worked as a team, etc.).   Answer Question
    • There is also a more 'technical' review, depending on the position you are interviewing for. This might be a simple or more complex cost-benefit analysis similar to the type of work they would do in reviewing EPA standards.   1 Answer
