    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Protiviti in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume through the career portal and heard back from a recruiter several months later once my graduation date approached. The first step was speaking with the recruiter about why I was interested in protiviti, and nailing down a location where I wanted to apply. Then there was a phone interview with a manager that consisted of more behavioral questions and then finally an in person interview at the office. There was a case study analysis that was part of the interview as well that consisted of a produciton process for a fictional company.

    Interview Questions
    • The case study was the most difficult part of the in person interview. It definitely helped to do some practice case studies before hand.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through my college. Was then selected for an interview on campus with a pre-night for a networking event. Initial interview consisted of a 30 minute behavioral portion with a 30 minute case immediately after. They give you part of the case the night before. Was then invited up to the corporate HQ for an office visit. Very informal superday consisting of panels and a small group activity. The day concludes with a 1on1 with a Managing Director.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    First interviews consisted of 2 rounds. One was a case interview where I had to look through a case and talk about risks within the process. Nothing difficult. The second round was a behavioral interview. Good old stuff.

    Second interview again consisted of 2 rounds. This time I was in the office and I basically talked to a manager, who was kind of aggressive, but that is normal since this is the guy who would be my boss on a day to day basis. Then I talked to a director for the last half and he was super chill, we basically talked about Protiviti and his role in the firm and so on.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    I technically have not accepted yet but I think I am going to sometime soon. I have 2 other offers but Protiviti is definitely on the top of my list. They also offered me more $ then public accounting firms. Their office was also really nice. Way nicer than E&Y or PwC.

    The interview process is simply behavioral interviews where they are really just looking to gain an understanding of your personality and how you would fit in with their company. The interviewers are very easy to talk to and ask the most basic behavioral questions, both of my interviewers asked a couple of them and then moved on to questions about myself.
