    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ScottMadden, Inc. (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    The first round included an on-campus behavioral interview with two consultants. They chose candidates that evening for second round interviews, which could be done either in their Atlanta or Raleigh office. The second round interviews included several (fairly casual) behavioral interviews with staff/leaders followed by a presentation that the candidate must prepare and deliver to a small panel.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ScottMadden, Inc. (Raleigh, NC) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Hiring/Interview process consisted of me emailing a cover letter with a resume attached to the head of the department I was applying for. After about a month, I was invited for an interview. I interviewed with the head of the department and a senior research analyst. The process took less than an hour and all of the staff were extremely friendly.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ScottMadden, Inc. (Raleigh, NC) in September 2010.

    Interview

    I responded to a job ad on their website. I received a call from their Partner in charge of recruiting and had about a 45 minuite phone interview. A few days later, she called back to ask me to come to their office for an in-person interview with 4 different people (one at a time). I traveled to their HQ in Raleigh (at their cost) and had 4 - 1 hr interviews. 3 of the interviewers asked standard interview type questions about my background, experience, why I wanted to work for the company, etc. The fourth had a much different style. He asked me a lot of situational questions about consulting (i.e. think of a time you had a conflict with a team member, how did you resolve it).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ScottMadden, Inc. in September 2009.

    Interview

    For the first round interview, it consisted entirely of behavioral questions with two principles from the firm. Since they are so small, they definitely want to understand why ScottMadden. Expect awkward silences as they switch off between questions. One interviewer was a little cold and hard to read but the other was very friendly.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ScottMadden, Inc. (Atlanta, GA) in September 2007.

    Interview

    The int process at SM takes place over a few weeks and will depend on your status as a recent MBA grad or an exp. hire. For those coming out of the MBA program, you will typically meet informally at an informational presentation. "Cultural fit" is important at SM, so be sure to make the most out of any points of contact. You will then have a panel interview (probably on-campus), and make a presentation in the office if you're called back. The process is outlined on the firm website and it pretty straightforward.
