    Consultant Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.

    Reasons 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at RGP in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I found this to be very professional and was held in an environment of open exchange. I felt the interviewers had the company's interests in mind during the interview, and maintained focus on waht the company offered while assessing the value I could bring. All in all, a really great professional session! The process was fully explained,so my expectations were not to be offered a position immediately, but rather over the course of the process. Thus far, a very positive experience, irrespective of the outcome.

    Management Consolodation Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at RGP in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was called for an interview at the Nashville office based off the resume I had submitted on line. The office had only two people working it. I don't recall the phone ringing once during my hour and a half interview. My take away impression was that this branch was not doing very well. The interviewer was nice enough but didn't ask any in depth details about my background or experience, rather they talked about the company, benefits and pay scheme. When I asked if they had any positions open the answer was that they were working on some but nothing definate at that time. I mentioned that I was interested in jobs outside of the Nashville area but they weren't interested in discussing that option. I left the interview(?) feeling that it was a complete waste of my time.

    Several weeks later I got a call wanting me to fill out a marketing profile for a positon they were working on and wanted to know how soon I would be availabe for a phone interview. They wouldn't tell me the name of the company until after I agreed to an interview. They sent me a job description late in the afternoon for the next day's phone interview. There was very little time to investigate the company or prepare for the interview.

    While the phone interview went well, the Resources representative said virtually nothing. At one point the interviewer asked if they were still awake. The interview lasted a little over an hour. It's common procedure that after an interview the recruiter calls the candidate back and give some feedback. I've never heard back from the Resources representative. Consequently I was left with a bad taste in my mouth and won't be taking calls from them should they call again.
