Solution Director Interview

Solution Director

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at The Hackett Group in January 2014.

Interview Details – A friend at the company let me know there was an opening, I contacted the company and HR followed up. I had an initial conversation with HR, then a live interview with my future boss, and was finally flown down to Florida to meet with the executive team.

Interview Question – What specific skills and experience do you have that you believe will make you successful managing large, complex, solution-oriented sales.   Answer Question

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at The Hackett Group.

Interview Details – I was approached by an old colleague who wanted to refer me for a position. Once I expressed an interest, a recruiter reached out to me almost immediately to discuss the role, give me broad salary understanding, and set up a first interview. I went through 3 interviews and was impressed at how the organization tried to ensure that I had a good picture of the culture and the role and responsibilities. My final interview, although the best, was the one where I was able to determine that this role was not a good fit for me. This was based on a very transparent approach where the hiring manager was very open and clear about her concerns about me as a candidate and clarified some areas where I had concerns.

Interview Question – There was nothing unexpected, probably the hardest question was whether I felt confident in my ability to do the parts of the job that would be new to me - and my interest in taking these duties on. That was the area I was not entirely sure about.   Answer Question

Senior Director Interview

Senior Director
Atlanta, GA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 days - interviewed at The Hackett Group in August 2013.

Interview Details – 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.   View Answer
  • Please tell how your company is organized and where your role fits into that.   View Answer
