    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Toffler Associates in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very detailed questions about projects I worked on, they kept pushing me to say the actual names of the customers , I guess they were trying to "check out my network."

    Interview Questions
    • "Tell us about a person you wouldn't want to work with". That was the easy part. But then they followed up with, "What if that person was your customer?". Another strange question was "Why did you choose to get an MBA from this school?" (note, my MBA is from the top 10 school)   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The project they considered me for was more qualitative than quantitative and that's not the type of work I do anymore. Plus, I didn't want to do only government consulting work which I thought I made clear during both phone and in person interviews.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Toffler Associates.

    Interview Details

    Very rigorous. I wish that I had put as much time into researching them as they took to research me. They ask for all sorts of information to include social media sites. Unlike most employers they take the time to follow up on references and seek to dig up additional information not provided as part of an effort to fully profile the candidate prior to the interview.

    Due to the virtual concept most employees either work from home or have the option to go to the main office. Therefore, the interview is conducted over lunch with one of the seniors from the cool kids circle. If they like you disposition and attitude they will recommend you for additional consideration. Overall, the process takes about a month. On boarding is fairly straight forward, but security clearances tale time to pass to various locations.

    Interview Questions
    • The one question that stands out during the interview is when I was asked how I feel about working in an unstructured environment with little supervision. At the time I though, gee I am grown up and I am very responsible. So I should do well. What I did not know is that there was another part of the question that was NOT asked. The question should have been phrased as: "How do you feel about working in an unstructured environment with little supervision and next zero guidance?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not much to it. Tell them what you want and they will counter.

    Conducted a detailed phone interview, followed by an in person case / behavior focused on some specific client issues. Interview was pretty formal, but was a good experience. The leadership I interviewed with knew thier clients, understood challenges, and seemed extremely bright.
