I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Manhattan Associates in October 2011.

Interview Details – It was good and hard. Expect to be challenged with riddles/puzzles and a white board session. They take you on a tour of the city and give a great meal with hotel. Overall, it is about 4 interviews which should not be too bad. If your smart and focused on working hard you'll get the job (P.S. they do not look for M.B.A.'s straight out of college)

Interview Details – Went to on campus recruiting. Had an initial interview with two employees. They asked personality questions and two thought process/problem solving questions. For example, how many flags are flying in the united states and design a coffee pot for an astronaut. The next round they send you to Atlanta and show you around the city. You then interview with two managers and perform a case study in front of three employees.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Manhattan Associates in March 2013.

Interview Details – Very relaxed interviewers. They ask weird questions though, be ready to think outside the box, although I don't think you're heavily penalized for not being overly creative. They seem to be looking for analytic thinking.

1st interview- On campus with two different interviewers
2nd interview - On site with two different interviewers plus a presentation (They send you the info a few days before)

Interview Question – How many gallons of fuel were used by employees today on their commute?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation encouraged

The process took a day - interviewed at Manhattan Associates in March 2010.

Interview Details – Had this interview on campus. Back to back 30 minute interviews with senior management. They are very impersonal. Don't bother with small talk, they are quite boring. Just be prepared with good stories. Basically they are there to judge you according to some pre-determing grading scale. They do ask tough questions, so be prepared for a tough behavioral interview. It seems pretty apparent that they consider consultants to be workhorses. If you just want to work somewhere where you work work work, then this seems like the place.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about a bad experience you've had at work or school.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The culture seems too corporate and impersonal to me.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Manhattan Associates.

Interview Details – I had two interviews, one over the phone and one in person at the Atlanta office. On the phone I spoke with a director and it was a pretty high level interview, nothing too difficult. In person I spoke with a senior consultant and a director separately, each for one hour. They were mostly trying to understand how good I was at communicating, solving problems, and thinking on my feet.

Interview Question – In the face to face interview I was asked how I would respond to a situation where a client offered me a gift that I wasn't allowed to accept [you are not allowed to accept gifts worth more than $30 from a client].   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate, I was too young and broke and their offer seemed huge to me at the time.
