    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online directly through their website. Heard back the following week and scheduled a phone interview with an campus recruiter. The recruiter is just trying to get a sense of your personality and whether your past work experiences are applicable to the position you applied for. Really laid back and conversational. Later that week I was invited to an in-office visit the next month.

    The in-office visit was very professional. There's a pre-interview dinner the night before and they put you up in a very nice hotel that night. The in-office visit consisted of an hour-long presentation about Protiviti, followed by two 1:1 30-minute interviews with directors and managing directors. Again, these interviews are very basic and conversational. You're just asked a few behavioral questions and then go over your resume. Be sure to come to the interviews with questions already prepared. After the interviews, they take you out to a nice, long lunch with the other applicants. You finish up the day with a group presentation on what you've learned about the company. I received an offer the following day.

    Just be yourself during the entire interview process. They're trying to gauge whether you can work well on a team and if your personality meshes with the young, energetic culture of the firm. Everyone in the office is very approachable and easy to talk to. I definitely felt at home by the end of the day.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    First, I met with two employees 1 on 1 for 30 minutes each. One interviewer was laid back and easy going while the other was much more direct and to the point. After getting called back for a second round, I went to the office and met with 2 more employees, 1 on 1 each time. Both were very laid back and asked more behavioral questions.

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was great - mostly all behavioral questions. The first round was at the career services department at my university and consisted of a 2 on 1 interview. Then, if you were called back, you attended an office visit where you participate in two 1 on 1 interviews and 4 round table discussions. They also take you out to a really nice lunch. Nothing to stress about, they just want to get to know you.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The Human Resources employees from Protiviti were very approachable at the job fair. They offered a lot of information on what opportunities would be available to me, how I could apply, and what I could do in my last years of college to prepare for this type of career.

    The initial interview at my University consisted of two 30-minute interviews with two different managers (1:1). This was a very typical personality interview in which I was asked to describe myself, my experiences, and how I have handled conflicts in the past. It is also important to note that it is imperative to go to the interview with questions you would like to ask them at the end.

    The in-office interview was very professional in comparison to the on-campus interview. This was a day-long process that consisted of two 30-minute interviews (with different managers), speakers, and a case presentation with a group of about 5 individuals also interviewing that day.
