I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Protiviti.
Interview Details – I went to all the recruiting events, got to know the office, and was eventually extended an invitation to the final meet & greet. Then, I was contacted for an interview. That one went well, I got another, then I received an offer via email and over the phone.

Interview Question – Nothing difficult Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Yeah.
I applied online and interviewed at Protiviti.
Interview Details – Applied on website, initial phone screen, secondary phone screen with manager, the on-site interview with phone screen manager, a peer, and a partner. The peer ran out of questions to ask and the partner seemed swamped. Work/life balance was not perceived as great, as mentioned multiple times "we're gonna work you," jokingly. After the office visit, had 2 additional phone interviews to determine where to be placed - I asked to stop the interview process at this point, since it was getting arduous.
Interview Question – What do you want to do here? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in November 2013.
Interview Details – Phone interview with the head of the department in San Fran and then an in-person interview in Chicago with the team. Everyone seemed friendly enough but the environment seemed a bit stuffy.
Interview Question – All behavioral based questions. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Protiviti.
Interview Details – Women- don't apply here.
I interviewed a few months back and met with three individuals from Manager to Managing Director levels. Two were okay, the third was argumentative and seemed to want to give a case interview but didn't really know how. Her questions were all over the place and she was combative with everything I said.
So, okay. After the last interview with the MD, the recruiter came in. She asked what I thought of the company and if I had any lingering questions. Then she brought up salary, and said "when we spoke before I know you were looking for something around 85k, but the max we could do for you is high 60s or maybe 70. Is that still ok?" I was floored. That is less than I make now, and well below the average for senior consultants in Chicago. I said I would have to think about it, but fit/opportunity was most important to me.
The kicker is that I had a friend interviewing for the same role. A man, with less consulting experience. So I asked him if the salary question came up, and he said he wanted 90k and the SAME RECRUITER said "we could definitely do that for you".
Ladies, the pay gap is real, and Protiviti thrives on it.

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in September 2011.
Interview Details – I first found Protiviti at my school's on-campus career fair. All the employees were young and professional. They provided a great deal of information pertaining to their jobs. I was selected for an interview later that week. I had an on-campus interview which consisted of two 30 minute interviews. One interviewer was very relaxed and just talked personally without asking a lot of questions. The second interviewer was a bit more technical and asked a lot of questions. I was less comfortable in this one but the questions were not terribly difficult and I got through it just fine. After the on-campus interview, I was selected for an office visit. Protiviti put me up in a 4 star hotel downtown the night before and took the candidates to dinner with current employees. The next morning a bus took us all to the building. We had a short case study that we received the night before and it was very simple. Our interviewer only asked a couple questions around it. We also met with a director who informed us about the culture and promotion road map. I was contacted via phone call within a week and offered a position.
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. All hires are paid the same rate.
Interviewed at Protiviti
Interview Details – Started with campus recruiting - submitted a resume and interviewed with a recruiter on campus. From there, they flew me to the office location I desired (along with other students from my school), and I had dinner with a few members of the team that night. The next day was spent meeting with about 6 individuals, lunch, and a group activity. Very well organized, and I had a great experience.
