    Project Manager/Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Strata Decision Technology in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process with this place was a joke. They had scheduled and rescheduled the interview several times. Each time moving it a week or two out for a phone interview. After the 3rd reschedule they said that they wanted to have people come in for an interview.
    When I arrived the people I spoke with totally had the attitude that they were better then everyone else there. Not really the work environment that I was looking for. After an hour, a VP walked in and was the lest engaging person that I ever spoke with. Within 5 minutes of talking to him I knew that I could never work for him. How the guy is a VP beats me.

    As soon as I left, I emailed the HR women and told her that I was no longer interested in the company.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Strata Decision Technology in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was a little long. I went through a corporate recruiter and had a 30 min interview with her followed by a phone interview with HR.

    After that was the onsite interview. There was a short 45 min exam on problem solving and data tables. I had two sets of interviews with two people in the room. Both lasted roughly an hour

    Interview Questions
    • No real trick questions. The problem solving questions were fairly standard brain teaser type questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Fairly straightforward. My offer was from my director and not HR. Salary was in range with what I expected and was able to negotiate my start month.
    Accepted Offer

    Project Manager Implementation Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Strata Decision Technology in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    My interview experience took me through 4 different stages, including 3 phone interviews and one in person interview.

    1.) Standard phone interview... Tell me about yourself, why Strata Decision Technology, why healthcare software, etc. This was with a project manager from Strata

    2.) Another interview with a manager... We discussed my background heavily. It was quite similar to the initial interview that I had, although they seemed to go into more detail about my background.

    3.) The third interview was onsite. This lasted 2.5 hours long, with the first .5 hours being spent completing a two part test, followed by 2 hour long group panel interviews with 2 interviewers in each.

    The assessment they made me complete included two case study questions meant to analyse your critical thinking, followed by a SQL database assessment/case study. I don't know SQL very well at all and this was a difficult part of the exam for me.

    The first group panel interview reviewed the first two case study questions (listed below) and included standard interview questions (like the first 2 interviews).

    The second group pantel interviewed reviewed your answers to the SQL portion of the test and again, asked about your resume, etc.

    After I went onsite I got a request for a 4th phone interview. Again, we reviewed my resume and I answered the same questions that I had already been asked 4 times.

    Software Implementation Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Strata Decision Technology in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got through the first 2 telephonic interviews and then they called me for a personal interview at their Chicago office.
    1. Firstly, they need to train their employees in how to conduct an interview, a bunch of recent graduates are simply not interested in interviewing you.
    2. I thought I was interview for a consultant position but I guess they thought I was a DBA.The interview was all about normalization!
    3. The first 2 interviewers were not interested in listening to your answers and more busy yawning and chewing something. all they were interested is about my school projects rather than my work experience..Silly
    4. No courtesy to communicate the results, you have to ask yourself
    HIGHLY Disappointing and Unprofessional

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Strata Decision Technology in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I found the position on Craigslist. I applied and heard back the next day. They scheduled a simple, 60-min programming test to calculate f(n) when n=50. They then setup a general background 30-min phone interview. Even though I wasn't very familiar with C#/.NET (I had been learning but was coming from an embedded C/C++ background), the interview went well and they invited me to an on-site.

    The on-site lasted 2 1/2 hours. The first 90 minutes were spent with the same person as the phone interview. We spent the entire time designing an elevator on a white board from objects to some of the functions and attributes needed. I was unprepared for this but the interviewer was helpful in getting started. The last hour was similar to the first but was a two-on-one consisting of a little background and designing a chess game. Everyone was really nice though I wasn't exactly happy about my performance.

    About a week and a half later, I had another phone interview. This time, there were three people I hadn't spoken with yet on the other end and we designed a database.

    A week after the last phone interview, I received an offer from another company. SDT declined to offer me a position at that time so I accepted the other offer. I was left with a good impression of the people and company. The only negative is that I have yet to be reimbursed for my travel expenses.
