    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Protiviti (San Francisco, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interview took place in two parts. Part one was mostly behavioral and part two involved a case study to see how quickly you can think on your feet. They had sent the information for you to prep beforehand. The questions and more details about the case study was later revealed in the interview. I have had exposure with the firm and its employees before the interview and so I found myself very comfortable with the managers I spoke to at the interview. In fact, one of the managers recognized me from a career fair hosted by my university.
