    Junior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milan (Italy)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milan (Italy)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Reply in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    You get three interviews with three different companies of the group, and they later will let you know if they are likely to hire you (with an optional second technical interview)
    The first interview is pretty much about the company business, and you get to speak about you only a little, in the technical interview it really depends, but I think it's unlikely they will ask you to solve problems, but rather talk about your previous experience and motivation.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milan (Italy)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milan (Italy)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Reply in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first interview I made was with the HR. It was only a fact-finding interview. They wanted to know about my education and professional expectations (more disposed to software developments or pure consulting). After that they've arranged an interview with a manager who asked me about my willingness to be part of a team of developers. Again it wasn't too technical, aside from some questions regarding some of my technical skills written on the CV, but pretty informal and colloquial.
    At least 60% of the people inside the company are young (under 30 years old) and the managers, at list the ones I've met, had exceptional background in consulting.
    The office in Milan looks great.

    Interview Questions
    • They may be asking for business case if you're going to apply for a pure consulting position. Otherwise there won't be any difficult questions either technical or business.   Answer Question
