I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Stroud International.

Interview Details – Start off with 20 minute test at info session. About 40 math, physics, engineering and logic questions, need to move very quickly to get all of them. Those who do well enough on test and meet the other minimum benchmarks get first round.

First round is 2-on-1, about 15 minutes long. Basic fit questions, like tell me about a time you...

About 20 people make it to second round, which is an entire day. Consists of several rounds of timed group case studies and subsequent presentations, as well as an individual case study and an engineering design challenge. About half the candidates are sent home at lunch. Remaining half does longer, individual presentation about case study in the afternoon.

About 5 people make it to final round, which is 2-on-1, about 1 hour long. Much more open fit questions, lots of opportunity to ask your own questions. One final informal case question.

Interview Question – What do you think is our biggest reservation of hiring you?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Standard, long window to accept/decline. Get to visit site once accepted.

Associate Consultant Interview

Associate Consultant

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Stroud International.

Interview Details – Went through their on campus recruiting. Started off with an IQ/logic test, with roughly 40+ within 20min. Time is really the essence so it's best to use your intuition and speed through the questions. They will contact you soon after to notify you the result.

Second round is a 1-on-1 or 2-on-1 behavior interview. No case studies during this short interview (within 20min). The employers really tried to learn about your personalities and look at you as a whole rather than judging based on resume. Unfortunately, I got declined after this round.

Interview Question – "What do you want me to remind you of after interviewing all the applicants?"   Answer Question

Associate Consultant Interview

Associate Consultant
Boston, MA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Stroud International.

Interview Details – Mechanical logic/speed test at campus info session.

Initial interview on campus with two Stroud employees. Very brief, around 15 minutes. Purely fit. Second round group interview at local hotel. Had several group cases with 3-4 other people and one individual written case. Relatively fun process with fun people but it was unclear what they were looking for and/or the weight of the written case.

Interview Question – Operations type cases, i.e. Company is looking to expand their manufacturing plants in the EU. Which location should they choose? You are given data about different locations, i.e. demand, local salaries, etc.   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Associate Consultant Interview

Associate Consultant
Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Stroud International.

Interview Details – Presentation from Stroud at Cambridge University with food and wine (beware), straight into written multiple choice maths and science questions. ~1h test. Fairly simple (GCSE / A level) maths and science but had to be super fast.
Science questions like:
when an ice cube melts in a glass does the water level go up, down or same. A set of different sized meshed gears: if you turn this one, how fast and what direction does that one go.
Next step: 10 minute interview : generic CV stuff, why do you want to join Stroud...
Next step: Selection day. Group games and presentations. eg build a table top bridge. Written case study and then present to interviewer. 2/3 sent home at lunch.
Final Interview: Mostly about your personality and what interests you.

Interview Question – I dont even think you know what we really do.........   Answer Question
