    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PRTM Management in November 2010.

    Interview

    I had one phone interview (phone screen, really) on Monday and another on Wednesday. The phone interviews are really just a place for the manager on the phone to talk about the company and get to know you and your background ("what kind of consulting experience do you have?", etc). Then I came into the office on a Friday for five 30-min interviews with partners. Questions were pretty basic, I mostly talked about my background and the interviewers described typical days on the job, project work, etc.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PRTM Management in November 2010.

    Interview

    1st Round: This was pretty basic. Just asked to go through my resume. No real behavioral questions. 2nd Round: Interviewed with 2 directors and 1 partner. It was similar to the first round. They ask about your resume experience and just probe deeper...didn't really ask specific "STAR" questions. Though they are looking for lots of leadership, financial modeling, and adequate experience in operations.

    Interview Questions

    • Give me examples of financial modeling you have done in internships or school   Answer Question
    • I was also asked to describe the actual models in detail   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PRTM Management in October 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed for Consultant position 1st round: Behavioral on-campus interview with a Manager. Pretty straight-forward behavioral questions (i.e. describe a time when you led a team, etc.). 2nd round: On-site interview. Was one of four people interviewing that day, and the only undergraduate-level interviewee. Consisted of four back to back 1:1 interviews with directors/principals and took about 2.5 hours. Almost entirely behavioral with one business related question mixed in just to keep you on your toes. No cases. All questions were pretty straightforward and typical and most of the discussions were background-related (i.e. describe your work experiences on your resume). I was called about 2 hours after my interview ended while still at the airport to let me know I would be receiving an offer. Official offer letter and details came a few days later.

    Interview Questions

    • If you were to meet with the CEO of your former company tomorrow, how would you tell him to improve the business.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    PRTM mainly hires at the graduate level, therefore there are very few people younger than about 30. This played an important role in my decision as I was coming straight out of undergrad. Base salary was highly competitive but the bonus structure is not as good as you would find at many competitors.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PRTM Management in February 2009.

    Interview

    Hr came to me late in a job search, so I pressured them to expedite. Phone interview happened quickly and seemed very laid back and effortless. First in person interview threw me for a loop where the interviewer claimed they almost did not have me come in for a resume punctation mistake. I believe the intent was to see how I handled pressure. Final panel interview was more laid back like the phone interview.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at PRTM Management (London, England (UK)) in June 2008.

    Interview

    I had a 1:1 interview for screening by one of the directors, followed by an interview day which consisted of interviews by 5 different directors, a case presentation and HR interview. Questions ranged from personal, CV based to case situations. Most of the emphasis was on the cases as they want to see how you analyse different problems and behave in difficult situations.
