    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Partners in Performance.

    Interview

    1x enrollment interview with head recruiter to see if you were a good fit 2x case-study and behavioural phone interview. each went for around 2 hours 1x face-to-face interview each interview was around one week apart from the last and arranged at your convenience. I think the feedback that I received was not helpful - they advised that I required more structure in my case but did not actually give me an example of structure, or let me know where I went wrong. They also suggested that I get an MBA in order to perform better on cases and suggested I was not experienced enough - I think that should have been addressed in the initial screening to save everyone a lot of time and effort.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Partners in Performance.

    Interview

    Four Interviews were conducted in the span of about a month. 1 Screening Phone Interview, 2 More 1.5 hour phone interviews with behavioural questions and cases, and 1 in person interview with behavioural questions and cases. Interviewers were very friendly over the phone, and helped me through the cases where I was getting a little stuck. Met with a partner in the final, he was not nearly as helpful, but apparently he is like that with everyone. Didn't really appreciate the way he went through the cases, I didn't feel he was clear in his questions or helpful, but then again, it was my job to clarify, so probably my fault. Didn't get an offer in the end.
