    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at RGP in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was as follows:
    1) Submitted resume,
    2) Was contacted by an RGP Recruiter to set up an interview
    3) Spoke on the phone for about an hour, typical questions nothing out of the ordinary; I believe the word I am looking for is “humdrum”.
    4) Next step was to meet the partner.
    5) Interview was to last about 30 minutes, mine lasted 1 ½ hours as we both went on tangents. And had a great time just chatting. (I have to say the partner for the DC office is a very inclusive person). Partner stated he could work with me.
    6) Went home and did not receive another call from them for 3 months. (I am not going to provide conjecture as to why).

    Interview Details

    RGP believes in "hire slow, fire fast". As such, one goes through a number of interviews so RGP can assess the fit. One meets with each of the Managing Directors, the Regional Director, the practice line leader and team members, and recruiting. The process can take a month or more. Interviews are friendly and not too complicated. Behavioral questions are asked.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    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!

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at RGP in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    My resume was forwarded to a client services manager via a colleague. I followed up about a week out. Had a phone screen conversation with a recruiter and client services manager. Scheduled an on-site interview with them both. Was sent a link to fill out a long information seeking profile but was given the option of wait until after the interview to complete it, to see if I found the opportunity to be a good fit. The recruiter was cordial, engaging and respectful. The questions were straightforward, tell me about yourself, what types of projects have you worked on, what types of roles are you most comfortable. Was given a spiel about the company, benefits and types of clients. The recruiter was candid about the pipeline of project work and the likelihood of being assigned. The client services manager did not join us, was held up by an important phone call.

    Reasons for Declining

    IMO, RGP uses the detailed profile application information to enhance their skills database for response to client proposals and the likelihood of being assigned to a project or not is random. Strictly project work, no lateral or upward mobility, little to no professional development and very little resources available once you are at the client site.
