The hiring and interview process was straightforward. I had a phone interview followed by four 30-minute interviews in-person. After submitting my resume online, I heard back within a week for the phone interview. A week later I had the in-person interview and a couple of days after that they got back to me with the decision. Overall, fairly quick and they took care of everything well.
- Nothing too difficult or unexpected. They try to gauge your technical expertise while being a fit for a consulting environment Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Navigant Consulting (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.
I applied for a full-time position from a reference at my university. I met a lot of individuals from an associate level all the way up to a executive director level when they invited me onsite. Most of the questions were behavioral, nothing too unexpected. There was an excel exam at the end that I was not prepared for.
- What characteristics do you need to work on being an entry-level consultant? Answer Question
- No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
Submitted resume through school's career portal and scheduled an interview. First round interview was with a partner and she was very friendly and pleasant, but was not invited for a second round. We mostly went through my resume and talked about work and leadership experience. The overall interview experience was positive but they were poor at getting back to me. I had to reach out to them after a month and a half to find out that I was not invited to the office.
- Structured behaviorial questions, not all that conversational. Tell me about a time... How would you adapt/react to this situation? Answer Question
- Accepted Offer
Very pleasant experience, no technical questions but be prepared to walk through your resume and past experiences in detail. Met with managing consultant, managing director, and then director. Interview was 3 hours total, very pleasant experience.
- No Offer
On campus behavioral interview followed by an on site interview. The on site interview consisted of three one on one interviews, an informal lunch with one of the junior consultants and a 45 minute presentation with questions on any technical topic of your choosing. The focus on confidence, your ability to truthfully answer questions on the fly and prefer if it a topic you have work experience in.
- The presentation was the most difficult because all other interviews were more about your history and learning about the company. The presentation took a lot of preparation and was the most nerve wracking, as it was in front of more senior employees. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Navigant Consulting (Chicago, IL).
The process was surprisingly quick. First a phone screen with HR, then a series of interviews with members of the team. The entire process only took a month or so. Some of the interviewers focused on subject matter of the position, while others were more of a topical conversation about the industry. Overall, I was satisfied with the interview and hiring process.
- Nothing really stood out as all that difficult, although I hear some candidates have to perform an Excel test. Answer Question
I made a reasonable counter, which they accepted the same day. Pretty easy.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Navigant Consulting.
The interview process started with a screening call with HR before scheduling phone interviews withe work group members. AS I advanced in the process I was invited to in-person interviews. The process was very organized, well structured, with clear communication on each step. The questions asked were very relevant and assessed my skill set based on the job requirements. It was a tough process but I feel it ensures only the best advanced in the process

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Navigant Consulting (Washington, DC) in October 2014.
The process moved rather quickly because the Financial Services practice is growing and desperate for good people. I first spoke with an HR rep to go through my experience and salary expectations. The next week I spoke with a Senior Consultant by phone. That interview was based soley on my work experience at a major bank. About a week and a half later, I was flown to the Washington DC office where I 3 interviews. One with an Associate Director, a Senior Consultant, and a Managing Consultant. The interviews were not difficult. It was more of a conversation regarding my work experience and career goals. There were the general SWOT questions and management style quesionts. Overall great experience. NO CASE!!!!
- None Answer Question
There was none. They kept emphasizing that the offer was extremely competitve considering I have not worked in consulting before.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Navigant Consulting (New York, NY) in October 2014.
I first saw the job post on Glassdoor, applied online through their website, and got an email requesting an interview soon thereafter. There was an initial HR screen, followed by another phone screen with the Associate Director of the practice, and finally an in-person interview at the office. There, I met with the Director, two Managing Consultants, and had an "informal" chat with a Consultant. Everyone I spoke to was extremely nice and kept the mood as light as they could; the conversations were almost effortless. I can tell that the people here are not only very smart and professional, but also are not afraid to let their fun personalities shine through. The interview questions are not hard. They are interested in hearing about your past work experiences and how your skills can be translated into the role. Though the questions are mostly focused on work experiences, they are also assessing your fit into the team and into the company culture. Additionally, my Human Resources contacts have been the friendliest and most helpful group of people I've ever gotten to work with. From the beginning of the process through securing my offer, they kept communication and next steps extremely clear and were very timely with their responses unlike a majority of other companies' HR departments.
- Standard behavioral questions and questions related to your resume. No cases. Answer Question
