I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Revel Consulting in October 2013.
Interview Details –
Was connected with an internal recruiter via a mutual contact. Met for coffee in October, discussed my background (industry, not consulting). Got positive feedback, and was told to expect a follow up call in a few days. Follow up was prompt, but explained that a few clients had put holds on bringing on additional consultants for the remainder of the year. Was asked to stay in touch.
Fast forward to march of 2013. Got call out of the blue asking how quickly I could come in for an interview.
Interview was 5-8:30pm at Revel HQ in Kirkland. Consisted of behavioral interview with a Sr. Manager, and a case study session with a manager. Got polite but non-committal feedback. Convinced myself I hadn't gotten the job, but it was a good experience. Got a call the next day offering the position. I started a week later.
Interview Question – You MUST be 100% ready to handle any variety of case study questions for 2+hrs. Buy some books on Amazon, read them, re-read them, practice with a partner or spouse. Prep like you're going in for McKinsey and you'll be fine. Answer Question
Negotiation Details –
Coming from industry, I was not able to negotiate anything additional.
Experienced consultants coming from other firms may have better luck.
I applied through other source and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Revel Consulting in July 2013.
Interview Details – Had a great informational with management first, then an interview with a SD manager. Recruiter answered all of my questions and was very responsive. Knew I had an offer at the end of my interview. Was able to start a bit later than they wanted; appreciated the flexibility. Overall I was able to get a great sense of the firm's energy and it's entrepreneurial spirit.
Interview Question – Question was about undertaking a software integration project for a client. View Answer
Negotiation Details – There was not much room for negotiation but I was coming in at a junior level. Once I had a salary review there was much more flexibility.

Interview Details – Meet with Talent Acquisition & Management specialist - they will take your pulse and determine initial fit. Might even meet with the CEO if he is on site. This is followed by two in person interviews on site - Behavioral and a Case Study.
Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary - they'll ask about your resume/experience. They'll have you walk them through a solutioning exercise - depending on what you are interviewing for. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Couldn't. They went above my initial asking price range.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Revel Consulting.
Interview Details – I had several phone interviews, then had 2 in-person interviews. One was informal and the other was in a conference room and they required you to draw something on the white board. I think it was a trick question in the interview, but overall it was an ok interview. I think it would be best if they didnt require people to write on the board and just let them if they wanted to, that way they could see who was more outgoing and eager to get the point accross.
Negotiation Details – Not much room for negotion, the company was between employees so I was originally told I would be getting paid $65 an hour then when the new employee came on he told me I could only get $60 an hour. It was a little annoying having them so off on the communication, but in the end I thought it was ok and I still took the job.

Interview Details – met with many account managers on diffenrt accounts as well as leads. All interactions with folks were impressive. folks seemed positive,intelligent, motivated. Concern in getting the right talent into clients and right fit for Revel culture.
Negotiation Details – fair it was about mid range between the 3 offers I had. However project and culture sold me on Revel
The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Revel Consulting in May 2012.
Interview Details –
I received a phone call within twelve hours of hitting submit. The phone interview was not much of an interview but rather an overview of Revel, it's pure consulting methodology and it's business model/compensation structure. [HINT: think of 2-3 good questions about the firm when your recruiter is delivering the pitch.] At the end of this interview, I was invited to come for in person interviews: a behavioral and a case study interview. These were scheduled for 2.5 weeks after phone interview.
The 1:1 interviews were fairly straightforward. Standard questions during behavioral. It was a very relaxed, almost informal, interview.Case study was also standard - make an action plan and provide suggestion with limited information. I felt I underperformed on case study component. [HINT: be prepared to use a dry erase board to work through your solutions] So I left fairly certain no offer was forthcoming.
I left the interview impressed with Revel, its culture and its recruitment process. It seems like a firm where an individual can grow and contribute simultaneously and where an individual can exchange ideas, test theories, and innovate solutions. The people I met were sharp, articulate and excited about the firm. Although I did not anticipate an offer, I was glad to learn of the firm and to meet some of its players.
I sent emails of thanks to my recruiter, interviewers, and scheduler. A week passed with neither update nor response, so I followed up with my recruiter to inquire about a decision timeline or a status update regarding my application. No reply.
I understand the logic of this approach ("why waste our time if we are not moving forward"), but Revel seems to pride itself on being a firm that respects people and their lives, obligations, opinions, etc. In the interviews, each person I spoke with gushed about the personal respect embedded in the firm's culture. So I found this aspect of the application process a bit confusing to be honest. Although my interactions with the firm were few and brief, I expected a little more from it.
That said, the interview experience was positive overall. Be prepared to hear a pitch about the firm (telephone interview), to discuss your experiences and practices (behavioural), and to solve a few problems on the fly (case study). As for post-interview protocol, don't expect to hear from Revel if you think the interview went poorly.
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Revel Consulting in December 2011.
Interview Details –
Phone interview to understand culture and answer questions. The flow as personable and I had time and space to all my questions
In person interview was a mix of impersonal and problem solving skills. I had submitted my resume and the manager has reviewed it, and asked detailed questions. He provided answers to any additional questions I had. I provided detailed answers to a number of capability based questions and scenarios (client management). Overall I could see the culture and liked what I saw. Offer letter was quick and the package was completive.
Negotiation Details – Reasonable process answered question and had open discussion about value provided.
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Revel Consulting in December 2011.
Interview Details –
My experience with Revel was not necessarily negative nor exceptionally positive. I first had a phone screening with a recruiter who explained about the company and a few weeks later she scheduled an interview with two managers, one to give a case study interview and the other to do a “behavioral” interview.
The case study interview consisted of the manager providing scenarios to see how one problem solves. However, very little information or context was provided for a problem that would need to be more thoroughly analyzed to come up with appropriate solutions. The behavioral interview consisted of walking a person through my resume and answering a project management related question. I didn’t feel that either assessed my competencies, past experience or future potential well at all. It seemed that they had already made a decision about my qualifications.
Candidates should beware that their “Pure Consulting” - “reduces the barriers between great minds and great opportunities” is silly marketing messaging. It only means they work just like the other “boutique” consultancies – they manage the client, negotiate the rate, write the SOW and occasionally touch base with the client. They want the consultants to focus only on the work. Nothing new there.
Revel doesn’t actually provide a collaborative work environment nor do they provide any professional development training as their website states. When I asked about this, they said that they don’t do much team project collaboration and I was told they have no formal development programs for associates – they only do occasional peer-to-peer mentoring or brown bag lunches on a topic. Again, same as other consultancies. Also, their pay rates are no higher and in some cases lower than other consultancies. Revel needs to better evaluate people who have broad and deep experience, knowledge and ability. People who have years of industry experience and have managed an array of projects, from strategy to execution. I think Revel thinks too highly of themselves and have an elitist attitude. Revel is not a company with which I would want to work .
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Revel Consulting in August 2011.
Interview Details – The interview process consisted of a 30 minute phone screen, primarily focusing on getting to know you and taking a quick look into your background and past experience. The next step was an interview with two separate managers, both lasting about 45 minutes to an hour. The first interview was a behavioral interview, seeing how you interacted in past experiences and to see how you would react if a similar situation came about. The second interview was a case interview with the interviewer given a “for instance” scenario to see how you problem solve. It seemed that the interviewers were looking for candidates who fit the culture of the company and not the specific project. Once a candidate receives the stamp of approval, they then begin to look for the right project and you begin to interview with different clients to find a project that suits you.
