Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Acquis Consulting Group (New York, NY) in November 2015.

Interview

I had an hour phone interview with the HR Manager. After, I was asked to come in person. I had to take an Excel, Word, and grammar test. Met with two consultants and the CEO. They seem like nice people but the organizational structure seems a bit loose. While I was there, I saw many of them watching the big screen TV or playing Ping Pong.

I was told I didn't have enough energy from them to hire. They were looking for someone peppy.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Acquis Consulting Group (New York, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I came across the company on an article that highlighted the best small consulting firms to work for. I contacted an HR manager on Linkedin who asked me to forward my resume. Within a week, I got an email for a telephonic interview with one of the partners at the firm. The interview was short, 15-20 minutes, and was just a walk through my resume. After two days, I got an email requesting me to come to the office in NY for a face-to-face interview.

    I interviewed with two consultants at their office. One was a case interview with two open-ended cases. Evaluating the factors involved with having a consolidated, global data warehouse for a company, and analyzing the pros and cons of replacing laptops with iPads for 100 salespeople in a company.

    The behavioral interview was basic. Questions about my resume, work experience, why consulting etc. I think it went well, but not great. I wasn't expecting a call back and got a reject the next week. The company is great, a little elitist though.

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Acquis Consulting Group (New York, NY) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online via a monster.com advertisement and through their corporate website. The interview was scheduled a week later through email for a phone interview with one of the Senior Associates. The interview consisted of about 15 minutes of behavior based questions. The interviewer opened the dialogue up for questions. The general feel from the interviewer was that they were looking for associates that fit into their culture that are looking for long term careers.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Acquis Consulting Group in March 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and was contacted within a few days by a member of HR. An initial phone screen was scheduled for the following week. I was told the interview would not involve case questions and would be "behavioral" in nature. Also, I was told the interview would last about 20 minutes.

    On the day of the interview, I received a call from a member of Acquis at the scheduled time. During the first five minutes he asked me several times why I wanted to work at a small consulting firm and what were the advantages of a small consulting firm compared to a large firm. He also asked if I was interviewing at any large consulting firms.

    After the initial five minutes of questioning, I had to carry the rest of the interview. There were no case questions, and the interviewer did not ask any questions about my resume. It was good that I had several questions so I was able to use up the remaining time.

    Overall, the interviewer seemed nice and to be very candid in his answers. I would suggest you make sure you have a good story for why you want to work at a small consulting firm. Be ready to explain the advantages. It seemed like my interviewer thought I was more interested in large firms, which was not true. I was very interested in Acquis, but the day after the interview I received an email stating I was not selected to move forward in the process. Best of luck to future interviewers.
