    Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Avascent (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two rounds, a Skype one and an in-person one in DC. I found the Skype interview fair, it consisted of a behavioral round and a case. They informed me of the structure beforehand. If one wants to do consulting, one should really be familiar with this format. My feeling from reading other reviews here is that many people were not prepared for consulting type interview. This would be a mistake, by my lights. Especially since Skype is a somewhat awkward medium for a case question.
    I enjoyed the in person round, something I thought I would never say about a job interview. I interviewed with various employees across different levels, and they were all engaged and interesting. Again, they were very communicative about the setup beforehand. No real way to prepare for this, just make sure you have read up on the company and industry.

    In summary, everyone was very kind and professional, and the interview was pretty in line with the other consulting ones I have done, just a little more involved: BAH, Deloitte S&O, IBM, ACN, etc.

    If it means anything, I found it very easy to choose Avascent when I got my offers.

    Interview

    Ok interview... just please look at my resume before the case interview... obviously a liberal art history major would not do well on the case interview. And the fact that after the case interview the administrator told me he didn't see my resume and asked what school I went to was prettty debasing and unfair (especially when it's case material that I could understand within a day-I.e. Not hard. Horrible investment of my time.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Avascent (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    First round was a 30 minute behavioral and a case study, which was of the hand-hold variety.

    Final round was at their office in DC and consisted of five interviews, one with someone who was definitely high.

    I walked away from the interviews with zero respect for the company and its leadership.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting site, was notified about an on campus interview within a few weeks. The on campus interview was back-to-back with 30 minutes of behavioral followed by 30 minutes of case. The case itself was focused around the defense industry, so some knowledge here could be useful and the case wasn't too difficult

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Avascent (Washington, DC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It was an on campus interview made up of a case-interview and a resume/traditional interview. The order was not fixed. The case interview was a little more challenging because it involved doing multiple percent shifts in my head. The nature of the case and the structure/iterative nature thereof made discourse with the interviewer a little more difficult. The other interview was a straight forward resume and qualifications review. The interviewer was quite nice and it felt more like a nice conversation as opposed to a simple question and answer interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Avascent (Washington, DC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straightforward; 30 minute behavioral and 30 minute case. During the behavioral, the interviewer focuses most on how well you will fit into Avascent. He asks you questions like why Avascent, what experiences you had that would make you a good fit, and how your education has taught you the skills for you to succeed at Avascent. The case was a business situation about a fighter jet manufacturing company. It was pretty straightforward, but you definitely need to practice beforehand.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Avascent (Washington, DC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was friendly, engaging, and fairly straightforward. They're looking for candidates who are competent consultants (so brush up on Case in Point or other case studies). Overall, the process was much more painless than other consulting interviews-- my interview consisted of an on campus interview and a final on-site interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avascent (Washington, DC) in September 2015.

    Interview

    2 back to back interviews. One behavioural. 1 case. Behavioural was straightforward, talk about why Avascent, defence & aerospace etc. Case was about a firm trying to expand into a new market. Relatively simple and similar to the kind of projects that Avascent deals with. They're looking for a logical, simple answer. Reading up abut trends in the Aerospace and defenSe industries would help.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Avascent (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    After submitting my application, they called me to schedule an interview at their offices. Interview was in two parts. First 30 minutes was a typical interview, reviewing my resume and going over the position.

    The second part was a case interview (also 30 minutes) that looked at a hypothetical business consulting situation where you are expected to analyze the data given to you and provide your analysis on the spot. Requires some "back of the envelope" math. Definitely requires practice and preparation if you haven't done case interviews before.
