Business Consultant Interview

Business Consultant
Seattle, WA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Slalom Consulting in April 2009.

Interview Details – Was very easy in the early years; mostly influenced by your network: who/which companies can you acquire as part of biz dev?

Nowadays may be more structured with many more on the interview panel.

Negotiation Details – Easy. They gave me a $ and start date and I negotiated for slightly higher. Wished I went for a bit more as it's taking quite a few years to be market competitive.

Consultant Interview

Consultant
Atlanta, GA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Slalom Consulting in September 2012.

Interview Details – I had five total interviews - first with a recruiter for a discussion about the company. The second and third were with the people who would be my direct supervisors. The fourth and fifth were with executives at the Atlanta office. The second and third interviews were the most useful where I discussed my skills/experiences and they discussed their needs. Those aligned well so I moved on to the final set of interviews that were much more about cultural fit than skills. Culture is extremely important at Slalom so be sure you're honest and don't bother holding back or trying to be formal during the interviews.

Interview Question – "Who is your hero?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate - they provided an offer much higher than I was being paid at the time and I accepted it.

Interview Details – The people you interview with are great and quite friendly. Overall the process was slightly worn out as the number of interviews you have to go through is excessive. There were times where they would appear to be lost in the hiring process and quickly scrambled to find anyone to interview me. There is really no need to sit down and have seven in person interviews and three phone calls.

Interview Question – No case or difficult questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – They seem lost in their ways.

Very Easy Interview

Consultant Interview

Consultant

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Slalom Consulting in January 2012.

Interview Details – First a recruiting manager will contact you to get your details and your interest on the new opportunity. second some senior technical person will contact you and ask you questions on your expertise. In few cases where they donot have resources who have knowledge on specific technology,questions will be very silly.

Then resource manager will call you with full of promises that you will find a project in matter of days in your technology, and salary will be discussed in the call.

In some cases the Director of the division/dept/branch will call you to get your long term and short term goals.

If you donot adapt to new technical skills then you would be thrown on bench for quite some time, and send to client projects where you might have work unrelated technology/role. you cannot relocate even though there is a better project in another city.You will do lot of experiments with new technologies.

Interview Question – how flexible are you in learning new tecchnologies ?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – they would be little pushy to get you onboard soon.

Java Architect Interview

Java Architect
Irvine, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Slalom Consulting.

Interview Details – Contacted by the company recruiter. Did a bit research on glassdoor, overwhelmingly positive feedback. scheduled for four rounds of face to face interview. up till the last round of phone interview, i had very pleasant experiences with this company. The last round was technical and the interviewer was very picky about some 2 minutes google able questions, then was asked to do a off line coding project. never heard of this before. submitted the next day, and never heard back from them, very disappointing and total waste of time. Good luck with people who wants to get into this consulting firm.

Interview Question – Was asked to do a offline coding project.   View Answer
