    Consultant Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ALTEN (Troy, MI) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was called for an in-person interview at their office in Troy, Michigan. Two people interviewed me for multiple positions based in and out of Michigan. Everything went smoothly and they told me about the next stage which was to be held the following week with the client.

    The whole next week passed and I was never contacted from any of the staff from Alten. Even my mails weren't responded to. Finally after I called them, they gave me a standard reply that someone else was selected.

    I don't have a problem with someone else get but the unprofessional of these people. They have all under qualified Frenchmen working there who call themselves Engineers, I don't know but by what qualification.

    Glad I didn't join them and I would never recommend anyone to apply for a job at this bogus unprofessional so-called consulting company.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ALTEN (Seattle, WA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    They are a global consulting company seeking to branch out into technology companies in the Seattle area. As such, they're concurrently trying to sign up the actual consulting contracts while building a pipeline of people who could staff them. In other words, there is no real position open yet.

    Framed that way, the interview was primarily a get-to-know-each-other in their small executive suite in Bellevue. It was an enjoyable conversation with no real surprising questions. Given the uncertainty about their contract, there was no clear call-to-action at this time.
