Technology Consultant Interview

Technology Consultant

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Protiviti.

Interview Details – Two parts. Behavioral part and Case Interview part

I thought the behavioral was easy, fairly straightforward questions. However, the Case interview definitely tripped me up. Mainly the fact we had to go into role-playing mode where I was giving essentially a status report to my 'boss'. I gave it my best shot, but the guy seemed a little un-interested throughout the whole process. Overall, it was alright, but definitely not great.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you were proud of your achievement.   Answer Question

I interviewed at Protiviti in October 2013.

Interview Details – There was a pre-reception prior to the first round interview. Atmosphere was laidback and the employees were very friendly and open to all questions. First on campus interview consisted of one behavioral interview and one case study interview. Behavioral interview was as expected (team questions, leadership questions). The case study involved looking over a purchasing process (flowchart) and suggesting improvements and possible risks.

Consultant Interview

Consultant

Interviewed at Protiviti

Interview Details – Round 1 - 2 back to back behavioral interviews. Mainly just trying to see if you would be a good fit for the organization.

Round 2 - This is an office visit. There are 3 interviews: 1 case interview, 1 behavioral, and 1 to learn more about the company.

Overall, the interview process was quick and enjoyable. It would have been better if the company flew us out to the office though.

Interview Question – All were very straight forward. It was unexpected to receive details of the case the night before the interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Don't be afraid to negotiate. If they make you an offer it is because they like you and want you to join their company.

Intern Interview

Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Protiviti.

Interview Details – The process was overall very smooth and flexible. The first interview was strictly behavioral and lasted 30 minutes. The second round interview involved a small case where the interviewer gave me a handout to read and then we discussed it. I analyzed a process flow and identified potential drivers of the issues the client was facing.

Interview Question – I would say the process flow case was 'most' difficult but I wouldn't say it was at all very challenging.   Answer Question
