I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Triage Consulting Group in February 2014.
Interview Details – Triage came to our university twice during this school year. Both times they had info session as well as a table at our job fairs. I applied online and was emailed a week later for a first round interview on campus.
The interview was thirty minutes long with a principle member from Triage at our career service center. It was pretty conversational and was focused on the resume, interest in Triage, and to get to know you more on a personal level.
They contact you the next week for a second round interview in San Francisco if you do get accepted.
Interview Question – What do you like to do for fun? Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Triage Consulting Group in February 2013.
Interview Details – Triage came to the career fair and i submitted my resume and cover letter. i received an interview and had one with a manager at the company. he asked questions like why healthcare, why Triage, what do i like to do for fun, how is senior year...very comfortable and conversational (about 30 min total). 2nd round i was invited to the company office in atlanta where i went out to lunch with 2 senior associates and then had 2 30 minute interviews with employees are the company. one was a manager (with company > 4.5 years) and the other was a principal (been with the company >8 years). They asked questions based off my resume and were both highly interested in what i liked to do for fun, my hardest class, and my favorite class in college. they also asked how i work in a team, multitask, and handle disappointment. lastly i had a 30 minute case study which one cannot prepare for because it is very different than other types of case studies. one really just has to listen when they are explaining it and then just answer the questions (really just math and logic)...not hard and i feel like the main point of the interview process is to access if you would be a good fit personality and culture wise for the company and have a strong work ethic
Interview Question – case study View Answer
Negotiation Details – no negotiation about salary or signing bonus. option of 3 different start dates though and that was very nice.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Triage Consulting Group in October 2013.
Interview Details – First step was an on-campus 30 minute behavioral interview. I was interviewed by a principal and it was much more of a conversation than anything else.
If your selected for the second step, the company flies you out to the office in San Francisco where you have three 45 minute interviews with upper-level management. I was interviewed by the CEO, CFO, and a manager. I was also taken to lunch by an Associate and Senior Associate. After lunch there was a case.
Interview Question – Most of the conversations are about past experiences and how it can be applied to your future career. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Triage Consulting Group in November 2013.
Interview Details – I applied through on-campus recruiting by sending in an application and a resume. I heard back and got an interview about a week later. The interview was a 30 minute behavioral interview that was really really casual. He only asked me one real behavioral question and the rest was kinda just saying why I wanted to work for Triage and what interested me about the work, which I bsed pretty well and said I loved working with numbers and the intricacies of the insurance industry and hospitals and patient synthesis.
Apparently I did well because I was contacted about 2 days later and was able to schedule a final round interview at their offices in San Francisco. They let me pick a flight reimburseable up to $250 from LAX and I had to send in a reimbursement form after the interviews.
I arrived at the office around 8:45 and they had me and 9 other candidates in the conference room. They had bagels and orange juice but I definitely should've eaten a real breakfast beforehand. Around 9:00, an associate and senior associate that you would be having lunch with later that day came in and introduced themselves and talked individually to us about the process. I then had 2 45 minute behavioral interviews that were very similar to my on campus one. Super casual and just why healthcare, why consulting, why Triage, so have lots of questions ready for them because there honestly isn't much to talk about. We then had a 15 minute break and then a 45 minute introduction to the case study. This is where we went through a sample of what the case study would be and pretty much gave us a template to follow along with when doing the actual 45 minute case study after. The case study was basically the work that Triage does. They gave you 3 different cases that included all of the billings for the procedures that the patient had, the insurance policy associated with that patient, and how the hospital decided to bill the insurance. In each of the cases, there was a way to charge the insurance more money to get more for the hospital. For example, if the hospital charged the insurance for the 3 days in the ER and it was a total of $12,000, and then you look on the patient procedures and see that implants were done, find that procedure in the policy associated with the patient, and see that this procedure can be billed $25,000 plus the $12,000 bill, then you say that this is how they should've done it. Basically, you're just searching for information that isn't necessarily apparent in the billings and policy but you just have to keep searching. I second guessed some of my decisions but just make sure you finish it.
After this case, the associate and senior associate I met at "breakfast" took me out to a nice lunch to just chat about anything and everything (they claimed to have no say in the decision process for Triage). We went to a great lunch and then I came back for another 45 minute behavioral interview. This one went the same as the rest.
After 2 days, I was notified by phone that I got the offer and they then forwarded me an email of the letter, but it didn't include much about the benefits and what not.
The process was overall pretty easy and only took about a month. Make sure you emphasize that you really are numbers orientated and are interested in the intricacies of health insurance and hospitals. Best of luck!

Reason for Declining – Salary wasn't as good as another offer I received and the work didn't seem as interesting to me
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Triage Consulting Group in October 2013.
Interview Details – There was a 30 minute on-campus interview with a Manager that was very conversational. They mainly discuss your resume and try to get a feel for your personality. A couple days later I was notified that I was selected for an in-office final round in Atlanta. All of the people were extremely friendly, and the two behavioral interviews were very straightforward. There is a case study component, but I do not think it is that important in their decision. Awesome company with an awesome culture!
Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions. It was mostly conversational Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I had another offer that was more competitive

Interview Question – Why healthcare? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Triage Consulting Group in September 2013.
Interview Details – I submitted by application online (came from a non-core campus). I received an email setting up a phone interview with a current Associate a few days later. The interview was very conversational and relaxed - basic background information and going over my resume with a few questions about the work Triage did. Unfortunately I was not asked back for the second round of interviews.
At the time I thought I did okay, but in retrospect I don't think I was a good fit for the company. They are looking for very extroverted people. Additionally, I came from a non-business/finance background so that may have put me at a disadvantage. Be sure to demonstrate your passion for healthcare, being a team player, and competence in quantitative analysis skills.

Interviewed at Triage Consulting Group
Interview Details – The hiring process was pretty straight forward for off campus recruits. You start with a phone/skype interview and then two on site interviews. Unfortunately you have to pay for the first trip out yourself, but it's a good way for them to weed out uncommitted candidates. There is one case interview that is also pretty do able. They give you full direction in the beginning and it's really just a measure to see if you can do the most basic thing they do.
Interview Question – My most difficult question was why do you want to be in business (I came from a psychology background) Answer Question
