    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Berkeley Research Group (Charlottesville, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through campus site. I heard back within a week that I had been selected for an "on grounds interview." It was a behavioral interview//a basic resume walk through. I met two separate interviewers for 30mins each. I talked about the highlights of my resume and personality questions. They each threw in "brain teaser" questions at the end.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Berkeley Research Group (Charlottesville, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was an on-site campus interview. It was a 1-hour long behavioral interview, 30 minutes each with 2 different employees. The questions were typical behavioral questions, with a technical conceptual thrown in there that wasn't too difficult. The technical question was just a scenario to see your potential approach to a problem.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Berkeley Research Group (Emeryville, CA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    It was one onsite interview with 3 people. I talked to one associate, then a senior associate, and then a director. There was one case question and it was pretty straight forward if you are familiar with finance and accounting concepts. I think that all in all, it was a pretty average interview process. I also talked to a recruiter this process started.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Berkeley Research Group (Dallas, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's career site. The first interview was on campus and the second was at their Dallas office. The interview was behavioral and also tailored to your resume. It was very relaxing and conversational. The second part of the interview was more about the knowledge of the job and specific skills needed

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Berkeley Research Group in October 2015.

    Interview

    First interview was a 30-minute long behavioral interview on campus. It wasn't complicated -- all around it was more of a conversation than an interview. While it was a good conversation, I was turned off by the expert model and the work hours and chose to decline a second round interview.

    Easy Interview

    Sent a resume through an on campus job posting. Several weeks later, received an email requesting an initial phone screening. Had the 30 minute phone screening and was offered an on-site interview on the phone call. Several days later, was flown to the office to have 6 in-person interviews and lunch. Was contacted the next day to hear the offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Berkeley Research Group (Dallas, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First round on campus interviews, which is just your typical run down of the resume, plus a few behavioral questions--basically to see if you're interested in the company. They inform you within a few days if you made it to 2nd/final round at the office you're applying for. Final round consists of a super day in which you have several 30 min interviews with senior staff/directors and lunch with junior staff. Interviews can be either entirely conversational, behavioral or technical depending on who you're interviewing with. Almost everyone (at least at the Dallas office) seemed very academically inclined and genuinely motivated to do quality work. They have a pretty nice set up, but apparently have high turn over rate of Associates as most are expected to go to grad school or the work gets too stressful. While it is form of consulting, it's not even remotely close to conventional management consulting and there's absolutely no travel required. The associate role is more of a research analyst type position. Overall seems like a pretty neat place to work if you get satisfaction out of economic litigation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Berkeley Research Group (Washington, DC) in September 2011.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 3 managers and then had a lunch interview with other associates. It was focused on understanding how diligent I was, they tried to assess how well I could work with large amounts of data and how well I could work independently. The group interview usually includes two or three associates and a senior associate and the candidate at a lunch. It's informal but seeks to assess how the candidate will fit into the work environment. It's relaxing but it is still an interview.
