I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at alliantgroup, LP (Houston, TX) in October 2015.
I had a casual and enthusiastic conversation learning more about the role and the company. The questions were standard, but delved into some specifics as I talked about certain aspects of my background. The interviewer allowed me to ask all the questions I wanted, and chuckled approvingly when I brought out my notes.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at alliantgroup, LP (Houston, TX) in September 2015.
External recruiter called to ask if I would be interested in interviewing for a position--I had to push to get the title of it. Had to be next day bc HR didn't have enough people for Director to review and they were coming into town that week. She was emailing with HR as we spoke and said they felt my experience was a great fit. She also emphasized the hours expected, and kept asking if I had an issue with working long hours. Was parking for interview and got call from recruiter asking if I could do it later in the day bc HR person was pulled into a meeting last minute. So, 10 mins before it was rescheduled. Fine, no problem. Met with a very green HR person who did apologize (needs to learn to not over apologize). She didn't seem like she was in the mood to interview someone and asked pretty basic questions. She also didn't know a lot about the software used. It took about 30 minutes and she did her best to answer my questions. Told me she was meeting with Director next day so should hear something in a couple of days about meeting with Director for 2nd interview. I follow up with my recruiter who had heard back in the morning (and never contacted me) that they wanted to stay within the 2-3 years of experience. I had more than twice that many years experience. They wanted to be able to mold the person. Although the HR person told me it is a new position (and only one doing it), so would be able to define it as the first person doing it. I have a feeling I was older and more experienced than they wanted. It is a VERY young group of people. I was probably much more experienced than even the Director! They really want newbies to throw a lot of money at that will allow justifying what appears to be no life balance whatsoever. No one with 2-3 years experience should be paid what this position was paying! Also, the casual dress is SLOPPY!! But again, probably has to do with living at the office.

I applied through other source. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at alliantgroup, LP (Houston, TX).
Very vague and rude at times. Was not impressed with the first interview. First interview put themself above the interviewee. They were short woth their questions. They did not care to be there. Also interviewer thought they were scaring the interviewees. Second and third interviews were casual and informative.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at alliantgroup, LP (Houston, TX).
An agency recruiter who placed me in a previous role contacted me and scheduled me for an interview with the HR director with the promise of an extravagant raise. Nice building and a pleasant interview overall, good enough for me to ignore the Glassdoor reviews. I came back to interview with a director and it was comically terrible. Late to the interview, hadn't read my resume beforehand, and spent most of the time attacking previous employees. I knew the company wasn't for me when I was interrupted by the director making a comment about an employee leaving at 6:45 as "f-ing lazy".

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at alliantgroup, LP (Houston, TX) in August 2015.
I first had a brief phone screen, then interviewed in person with a recruiter for the company. After meeting with her, she put me through to the next round. This consisted of an interview with two directors in the area I would be hired in. After this second round, I was offered a job via phone. The entire process took exactly two weeks from submitting my application to receiving the offer. The recruiter that I met with was extremely nice. I liked her a lot and I felt like our interview was more of a conversation than a traditional interview. Of the two directors I met with, one was very sweet and friendly, however the other seemed a bit arrogant. Overall, I had a good experience and enjoyed the people I interviewed with.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at alliantgroup, LP (Houston, TX) in August 2015.
I made it through the initial phone interview, and was left with the impression it went well. Questions were relatively simple, and the interview took a conversational turn, and as a Sales professional, that is always a good sign. I was offered a second interview the following week to meet in person to coincide with her arrival back in town. Before the second interview I recieved a call from a staffing consultant claiming the interview was canceled, and not rescheduled. I don't know why, but there it is.hope it helps!

Very easy, basic interview. Recruiter will ask you basic questions over your Resume. How well you work with teams, and what did you like most about your last position? Other questions include name a time when you failed to meet deadlines, and where do you see yourself in a few years.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at alliantgroup, LP (Houston, TX) in July 2015.
The interview process started with me applying on linkedin. I received a call from a recruiter who lived in california. The interview went well in my opinion but after about 3 months I didn't hear anything back. I reapplied for a different role and the recruiter didn't even know that I'd interviewed with the company before. When I mentioned it and the name of the lady who interviewed me, I found out she was no longer with the company. I thought this odd because the lady really sold me on the value of Alliantgroup and how much she loved it. I think this plays into the comments you see on the site about high turn over. I went down to the office for the interview and complimented the building and such. Always do that. I checked out the atmosphere and I must say it seems counter to what I see on the website. At the same time I was in the lobby and it could very well be a sweat shop behind closed doors. I don't like the fact that people wear jeans and T-Shirts honestly. I think that is pretty outrageous. This isn't a frat house.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at alliantgroup, LP (Houston, TX) in June 2015.
Extremely expedited and overly rushed by HR. I had around 3 rounds: 1) HR reach out / conversation initiation, 2) HR behavioral interview, 3) Senior Management interview (1 senior managing director, 1 senior director). HR reached out via LinkedIn where her profile did not state which company she worked for, which was a red flag but I humored her and responded. Once I reached out, the interview process moved extremely fast - about 2.5 / 3 weeks from communication initiation to receiving an offer. I was rather turned off by my first round interview questions by HR including, what don't you like about your job, how much do you get paid, what makes your current job so awful, when do you get paid, etc. Overall, all rounds of the interview were behavioral. No case or situation questions. I did most of the talking / asking questions and they barely asked any questions. Responses were informative and sugar coated like any other interview process. Alliantgroup is desperate for employees - even if you ask for their past performance and their turnover rates, they'll sugar coat it. HR is not knowledgeable regarding the actual company and what they actually do. Due to the fact that they reached out to me, I wasn't even clear on what exact position I was interviewing for until I saw the offer letter. Lots of ambiguity throughout.
