    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Navigant Consulting (Washington, DC) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online (career services and their website) and was offered an interview a week or two later. It was a one-on-one, mostly behavioral interview. I was interviewing with a Director who was generally easygoing and asked me fairly typical behavioral questions, nothing out of the ordinary as I can remember.

    A week or so later, I was offered the chance to attend the final round of interviews at the DC office. That consisted of three half-hour interviews with directors and my would-be supervisor. They took us out for lunch afterwards and that was it. They let me know about four weeks later, about a week after they said they would.

    Interview

    It's just ok. Nothing hard expected. It seems like they are just looking for someone who can work hard to do all the work. The interview process was done by 3 people. HR, one direct and one MD. Very basic questions.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Navigant Consulting.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews with several senior leaders, business case, steering committee review. I interviewed with leaders within the practice area I would be joining, the head of all consulting and a member of the MD steering committee.

    Interview Questions

    • Most important question to answer is to explain how you will be able to sustain a successful sales performance   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    You can negotiate but I was given a fair attractive offer so little negotiation was needed. For me it was about the company and the opportunity not squeezing out a few extra dollars. I did negotiate my sign on bonus and start date. I should have negotiated more on a guarantee bonus for the next year.
