    Interview

    A typical consulting case interview. A mini case given by two people asking about how to solve a client-related business type of a problem. Some of them were harder than others - but I thought it was generally pretty easy.

    Senior Director Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Hackett Group (Austin, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly rigorous with a director asking relatively detailed questions and addressing every nook and cranny of my resume. Relatively basic behavioral questions initially, with a couple of technical questions about scenarios that may pertain to an engagement or work assignment, but definitely fair and looks to see how you think.

    The interview process was swift and the follow up was inpeccable! Lots of great questions asked. I am really looking forward to seeing how these practices reflect internally. The Hackett Group really made a great impression. Not to mention the benefits package involved.

    Interview

    Very unorganized and managed by different groups. No overall strategy to how to hire or who. Company culture and strategy is different depending on who you ask and when.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Hackett Group (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    Negative Experience
    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
