    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Protiviti.

    Interview Details

    There were two parts- one about past experiences/behavior and the other a case study. The interviewers were very nice and likable. And each part takes about 15 mins, so 30 mins in total. I was told that I would her from them in about a week or week and a half about whether or not I would get a second interview. I believe the 2nd interview would be in the office location that you applied to.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Protiviti in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online after hearing about the company from a colleague. Their recruiting process is very efficient and one of the best interview process I've had. The recruiter got back to me the next day after I applied online. The entire process took about 2 weeks. The interview processes was standard with a phone call from recruiter about the position, follow by a phone interview with a manager, and an in office interview with the directors as well as a case study. The interview ended with lunch with a couple of consultants who will talk more about the firm and answer any questions you may have. I was coming in from out of state and Protiviti was very generous in offering all the necessary accommodations. Everyone at the firm was extremely nice and I felt like I got along with everyone there.

    Tips:
    -It's always better to over prepare for an interview. (Do your homework and research on the company)
    -Organize your thoughts before you speak. Organization is important...especially for consulting.
    -There are videos made by Protiviti you can watch on youtube that will give you a good idea what kind people you will be meeting
    -The case study wasn't hard. Take a good look at all the materials that are given to you before you dive in. Take notes or make comments as you read through it. This will help you a lot when you're writing down your response. (If you have taken a MIS course at your college, then the case study will be familiar to you)
    -Having an accounting background seems to be useful based on my conversations.
    -SMILE and have a good time. (Be yourself)

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Protiviti in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    First half was a case study, where a scenario was presented. Second half was standard a behavioral interview. I spoke to two different Protiviti employees, and would suggest doing background research on the company because they asked about Protiviti buzzwords as well as what I thought sets it apart from other similar companies.
