    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Navigant Consulting in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    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!!!!

    I was referred into the firm by a former colleague. Brief phone interview with a recruiter followed by three 45-minute office interviews.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Navigant Consulting in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    First round on campus consisted of two personal interviews and nothing too difficult. There was never any technical questions in any of my interviews. The second round was on location and consisted of 3 hour long interviews with senior staff which were a little more pointed. We spent the night prior eating/drinking with the firm and getting to know one another. They just wanted a normal person.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Navigant Consulting in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone interview with the HC rep from the Chicago headquarters. He follow-up-ed later to set up interview date in the DC office (where the position is) for the following month. I went to the DC office in January on a Tuesday afternoon. I had a three one-on-one interviews. The first one was with a Senior Consultant (who is now my friend), who asked questions about my resume and warned me about some of the negative aspects of the project I was being considered for. The second interview was with the Managing Director. He tried to sell me the job more ask me questions. The third interview was with a Managing Consultant, who has human resources experience; and this was the real deal. She did more than looking over my resume. Her questions were designed to figure out what motivates and drives me, but I found it a pleasant conservation.

    Negotiation Details
    It was less than four hours after interviewing in DC, that I received phone call from the Human Capital rep in Chicago, who extend the offer. They really wanted me to join the training class that was starting up in 6 days, so I was given less than 24 hours to accept the offer or accept an alternative offer to start in a month for now. I decide to accept and start right now. That offer was good, compared to the market at the time.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Navigant Consulting in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initially applied through university career services website. Was contacted for a first round phone interview. First round interview was strictly behavioral, with an emphasis on previous experiences working in teams. Very conversational, and felt like they were mostly gauging if you could fit into their office culture. After the phone interview, was invited to the office for a final round of interviews. Office visit began with lunch with two consultants to ask questions and discuss life with the firm. After lunch, there were a series of 4 45 minute interviews. Similar to the first round interview, these interviews were exclusively behavioral and designed to clarify any questions or concerns you had about the business, and for them to see how well you would fit in and that your goals were aligned with what the firm could offer you. All in all the interviews were very relaxed and conversational.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Navigant Consulting in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied though my school's career site and got an interview. The interview consisted of behavioral questions only (no case) and I really enjoyed it. My interviewer was really funny and it felt more like a conversation. We talked about my resume, why I am interested in litigation consulting, how my previous experiences would help me excel, etc. He seemed like he was very prepared and responsible, and yet laid back.

    Non-consulting Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Navigant Consulting in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online directly for the job. Got called by recruiter from Chicago for a phone screen. After that, was scheduled for a phone interview with the hiring manager. Sent thank you email to the hiring manager, and he replied back directly, which was nice. He called me to schedule a phone interview with HIS manager who was based in Chicago headquarters. Not sure what the point of that interview was since it seemed to be impromptu - was it another screen or more informational? Then the hiring manager scheduled an interview in-person. Didn't know sometimes whether to contact the recruiter or the hiring manager, and the recruiter confessed he didn't quite know where things stood at one point. Not sure they have their interview process down. The floor of the building I interviewed on was amazingly sparse - very few signs of life - felt like an abandoned office with exposed ceilings and empty cubes lined with offices around the perimeter. Interview w/ the hiring manager took over an hour - there was a defined list of interview questions, but once we got talking, the interview became more conversational. Then I met with another office support staff and was asked if I've ever been in a work environment where you had to just deal with what came down the chain.
