Process Consultant Interview

Process Consultant
Philadelphia, PA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in October 2013.

Interview Details – I first applied through my university career site. Within two weeks I had a scheduled interview on campus with two managers. The first one asked several behavioral and work experience questions. They also had me conduct a basic case study of a situation that simulated a routine process that a consultant would experience (this one in particular dealt with the varying stages of how a bank grants an individual a loan). The second manager asked me similar behavioral and work experience questions. After making it past this round, I was invited to a pre-superday dinner in the city. All of the associates were very nice and welcoming and very open to answering questions. The final round was conducted in their Philadelphia office. The superday consisted of an introduction, presentation, two in office interviews, a role play, and lunch.

Interview Question – Can you give me a time that you had to think outside of the box?   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Protiviti.

Interview Details – Campus interview. 30 minute behavioral and 30 minute technical. Behavioral was easy, "Why *insert school*?" "Why *insert major*?" etc. Technical consisted solely of the case study and you asking the interviewer questions.

Interview Question – Questions asked during case study were somewhat unexpected but not too hard. Just pay attention to the details in the case study.   Answer Question

Process Consultant Interview

Process Consultant
Seattle, WA

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

Interview Details – Great and difficult questions, both knowledge based and interactive/open-ended

Interview Question – Placed in a real-life audit scenario and asked to quickly respond with my recommended solution   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is little to no room for negotiation with this company. That left a little bit of a sour taste in my mouth, given that I had a very reasonable request and a well-thought out and logical rationale. They have a fairly take-it-or-leave it negotiation style

Difficult Interview

Process Consultant Interview

Process Consultant
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Protiviti in March 2011.

Interview Details – I interviewed for an internship and then was offered a full-time position after I completed my internship. For my first interview, I interviewed with 2 managers for 30 min each. One interview was more conversational based just to get to know me. The other interview was a list of behavioral questions. Then I went to an office visit where I had a final interview discussing my solutions to a case study given the night before with a director.

Interview Question – I can't remember specific questions, but being prepared to talk about specific examples of my leadership, teamwork, meeting deadlines, etc. examples helped with the list of behavioral questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None

Process Consultant Interview

Process Consultant
Chicago, IL

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in September 2011.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Describe a time when something you were working on went wrong and how you solved it?   Answer Question

Process Consultant Interview

Process Consultant

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Protiviti.

Interview Details – I got an interview through my university's career center. First round was just a 30 min standard behavioral, although my interviewer mainly just wanted to walk through my resume and have a conversation rather than asking a set list of questions. I was called back that night for a second round interview the following day. The second interview was similar to the first, definitely more of a conversation than a typical behavioral interview.

A few days later I was called again to set up an final round office visit. The office visit didn't really have any additional interviews except a brief conversation with a manager at the end of the day. It was mainly about getting to know the people of the company, very relaxed and actually kind of fun. Still waiting to hear back about a final offer.

Interview Question – Why are you here? What is your purpose in life?   Answer Question
