Consultant Interview

Consultant
Hartford, CT

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at RGP in October 2013.

Interview Details – Phone interview, followed by an in person interview. The 2 people I spoke with and met were very nice, very down to earth and respectful of my experience. They described the position and provided great info in terms of company background, the business model and the job requirements. I thoroughly enjoyed the interview and I was completely comfortable speaking with the client services folks whom I met with.

Interview Question – There weren't any difficult or unexpected questions, but you should be prepared to share a prior challenging experience and how you confronted, managed, and solved the problem.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There really was no need for negotiation. The salary offer was appropriate and they pay their consultants overtime after 40 hours/week, which is very rare, yet very nice!

Consultant Interview

Consultant
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at RGP in May 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online and was contacted by a Recruiting Manager almost immediately. The phone interview consisted of basic screening questions and walking the recruiter through my CV. Was invited to an interview at their office in downtown LA. Having interviewed previously with PwC, I was expecting a full and comprehensive drill down of my qualifications and experience, but the meeting consisted of them giving me a benefits package and a short 1:1 with a Client Manager who more or less asked me to give him my professional contacts. The Recruiter and Client Manager were both very frank about likelihood of project placement and factors feeding into placement.

Interview Question – Walk me through your resume....   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – There is really no path for growth. This is a company for career consultants and other than moving to Client Development, there is no upward mobility. Lack of mentorship / professional development.

Consultant Interview

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at RGP in January 2010.

Interview Details – I contacted the recruiter directly through a LinkedIn connection after a recruiter suggested this company to me. RGP hires experienced consultants and "are Big 4 snobs" according to the recruiter. My Big 4 experience was old so I had not included it on my resume, but the recruiter warmed to me as soon as I mentioned it as part of my background. RGP had a down year in 2009 as seen in their financials. SInce they are public these are easily obtainable. They had tried to hang on to consultants as long as possible, but because the consultants do not get paid when not billable, many did leave. RGP likes to stock pile resumes and then when they win an engagement that requires specific skills they try to bring that person on board. This is a quasi variable rate model since they do bring people on as W-2 employees, but they do not pay people when unbillable.

Interview Question – I don't remember any questions as being particularly difficult.   Answer Question
