    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an online application from their site. I got a call the very next day and was asked to come in for an in person interview. I was offered a job on the spot (desperate), but chose to reject it due to a poor interview experience. Also, because the pay being offered was not worth it for what I would be getting myself into.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of personality questions, such as "Do you use coupons" "If you could be any animal, what would you be" "Boxers or briefs". I was honestly weirded out by the questions, but apparently that's how all of the Fortune 2,000 companies are hiring today.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I felt like the company wasn't the least bit serious about what they do. The interviewer was on his phone and finishing up his lunch. I have never been so disrespected in my life as I was during the hour I spent at The Lab.

    Thank you for taking the time to write this review. None of the questions you mention are part of our standard interview process or the written personality test we administer. The Lab does not offer ... More

    Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership.

    Interview Details

    Very long and tedious. All phone interviews. Spoke with 6 people for a company that has 50 max was excessive. After numerous discussions about my background and experience; I did not find out until hired how different their consulting methodology was from every other organization with whom I have worked. Not for the better, I must add.

    Marketing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my college's recruiting site. I set up an appointment with the VP of operations. However, he was not able to make it and someone else interviewed me. It was a Marketing administrator. He was really friendly and was really detailed in describing the company. He was enthusiastic about the company and people there all seemed to have a positive attitude. I did not receive position due to my late available start date. However, the interviewer gave me feedback on how to improve my future interviews and encouraged me to apply again when I am able to start to see if the position was available in the response email. I felt that was really helpful and professional. It was really nice of him to do so, because not many interviewers would do that.

    Interview Details

    Two interview days. First day you'll meet with one of the lower level analysts for 45 minutes or so, before taking up to two hours worth of tests measuring your ability to use a few Excel functions, and your analytic & research capabilities. There's also a personality test that was "optional" and not described as being important.

    The second interview will be with two of the vice presidents of the company. At least one will last 45 minutes or so, but either or both could be shorter if they are busy.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through Craigslist (they have recently switched to using Career Services sites from the local universities). I received an email from their HR person the next day and was scheduled for an interview later on in the week.

    My first interview was with the VP of Operations who went into great detail about the company's past and current events. He was very excited and you can tell he loved working there. A few hours later, I had received a phone call asking me to come in again for a 2nd interview and a skills test.

    The second interview was with a Senior Consultant. He went into more detail about the position and what he was looking for. I then took a skills test which had a few GMAT style questions and some work using MS Excel. There was also a personality test. After the test, I had another short interview with an analyst who wanted to know more about my background and really asked some good tough questions. After that interview, they wanted to know if I was available the next day and so I started the very next day.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    First interview was an hour long (in a private room) questions asked:
    1) How are you in a team environment? What would your fellow team members say about you?
    2) Walk through a difficult situation/ problem you've had?

    the first interview went really well, I got a call back within the hour for a second interview.

    Second interview was also an hour long (in an open area where everybody walks by-- from all the reviews I've read, nobody else has had an interview in this area so just beware they may improvise again)

    Questions asked (they were the same questions asked the first time):
    1)Why consulting?
    2) Why this firm?
    3) What is a challenging situation?

    I don't think the questions were difficult, I believe the environment was the worst thing about the second interview. Just be prepared in case they decide to interview in front of your future coworkers.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Required two interviews for internship position. Asked several tough questions but also did a good job of explaining the company and the job position. The person who interviewed me was very passionate about their business and it showed. That was probably the main reason that I accepted. The business model was impressive but complicated. The client list that I was shown was extremely impressive.
