    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Hackett Group.

    Interview Details

    several phone meetings - and 1 on site group interview and presentation assignment - rigged to stress the candidate with a flawed presentation platform -- to see how they reacted under stress. This was a common tech used by THG in 2008 - 2011 period

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 daysinterviewed 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
