    Senior Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at The Hackett Group (Atlanta, GA) in December 2008.

    Interview

    The interview process at Hackett was very quick and involving. I had three one-to-one interviews with senior managers, one of them being a practice director. Then I presented a small business case (given to me a couple of days before the interview) to the same group of managers. The questions asked in the interview were very generic ones, and the interviewers emphasized on very personal, detailed answers, specific to one's personality. However, in one of the interviews, the interviewer didn't ask any questions. I discussed with him challenges and opportunities in a specific industry.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at The Hackett Group (Atlanta, GA) in October 2008.

    Interview

    Did a round robin in person interview with 4 different executives. Basic questions about experience, knowledge, projects managed etc. Two days following the interview I was told I had hit the ball out of the park and to expect an offer letter within 2 weeks. This was the last verbal or written communication from Hackett. I submitted my minor expense reimbursement and was never reimbursed. My VM and email inquiring about the status of my reimbursement were ignored. The lack of communication and reimbursement is very telling and I'm fortunate that the offer was never made.

    Senior Director Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at The Hackett Group (Atlanta, GA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Very odd interviews and confusing process. All 4 interviewers were confused how my resume spoke to the experience that they wanted. 2 of the 4 interviewers were apparently high level senior leaders, but honestly could not articulate their roles. The spoke in a rather unprofessional manner as well. impressive in their presentation or answering of questions. One interviewer had not even read my resume. I found the interview to be somewhat insincere-- perhaps a way to gather competitive intelligence. (I work for a somewhat rival firm and they really wanted to get a lot of information from me). They even asked me to send some of my recent work examples--which of course I did not do because that is illegal. I would never work for any firm that employs such tactics to learn about the competition.

    Interview Questions

    • None. They simply wanted to know more about my rival firm. Again, a competitive intelligence gather tactic.   1 Answer
    • Please tell how your company is organized and where your role fits into that.   1 Answer
