    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Sapient Global Markets.

    Interview Details

    Basically you meet with a few people to see if you are a fit, then do a case study. The study is kind of open ended and can suck you in. You will not have enough time to complete it. If you do, you are not thinking about everything correctly.

    Interview Questions
    • Case study came with 6 questions about risk, time, build a schedule, ect.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very well co-ordinated. The interview included a 1 hour tech interview along with 2 other interviews that were more of a personality check. I got to see the different floors of the company as well and got a mini-guided tour of the offices. All in all a very pleasant interview experience.

    Business Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sapient Global Markets in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    First Round is mostly behavioral, nothing too complicated

    Second Round is in Sapient's office by Boston Back Bay, from 8am-11:30. Total 3 interviews. You are being left in the room and given 45 min to study a case and prepare a presentation, very IT based case. Then you will be evaluated by a senior staff right afterward for another 45 minutes. 2nd interview is with HR, so pretty much the basic stuff. Third interview is a group interview. You and 5 other candidates are given a case together, and you guys need to figure out the answer. It's more of logic game than case. They just want to see how you think and how you behave with others.

    Business Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Sapient Global Markets.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of two rounds--first round was a brief, 30-minute on-campus interview consisting of basic questions about my interest in the company, my background, etc. After being accepted to the second round, there was also a psychometric test administered online. The second round was held on a Saturday and lasted for four hours. It began with a brief presentation, followed by three 45-minute rounds, consisting of an in-depth behavioral interview, a 45-minute written case (to be presented on a whiteboard), and a 45-minute presentation of your solution. (Note that the order varies, though the case obviously comes before the presentation.) The last portion was a group exercise solving a non-business problem in front of a panel of directors and managers.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Sapient Global Markets.

    Interview Details

    Communication from the internal recruiter was excellent. I was not prepared for the case study interview, but took notes, drew up a project plan and presented well to the interviewer, who role-played as an executive from a target firm. I was very impressed by him and the person who conducted the values interview, less so by the office manager. My experience with the two interviewers and recruiter convinced me that Sapient was an excellent career opportunity. A behavioral test with about 35 questions that each present a choice between two activities is also administered.

    Interview Questions
    • "How much do you expect this project to cost and how long will it take?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate into a higher job title, but this can be a mixed blessing, since the higher your title, the less likely it is that you will be staffed on a project.
