    Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at C1 Consulting (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty odd and unprofessional. At first, the interview process started pretty straight forward. It started off with a phone screen and a very easy IQ/attention to detail test. The next round is a one on one case interview via skype which is pretty basic. The final round is a five hour day with two behavioral interviews, three case interviews, and a 15 presentation on a subject of your choice.

    I went through the phone screen and the IQ tests which were pretty easy. Upon the skype interview though - the interview called me thirty minutes early and offered no explanation. Overall he was kind of weird and made rude and odd faces when I was presenting him with my logic. He was somewhat standoffish. I made it to the final round but the day before my interview C1 canceled it to reschedule. Nobody ever reached out to me to finish up the process and I ended up taking an offer with a different company.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at C1 Consulting (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    2 phone calls, IQ test online (insulting), in person interview. Everyone was nice, but their examples of case studies were pretty lame. If this is how they screen their candidates then I don't know how they stay in business. Some even seemed jealous of my experience.

Finally a skype interview with a small case study involving market sizing and looking at a few graphs. Unfortunately company was sold before the final round of interview

    Analytics Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at C1 Consulting.

    Interview

    Interview was through campus recruiting. They took about 1 week to send me an email that they were interested, and then we set up a Skype interview. I was fairly excited. However, the interviewer did not turn on their Skype camera, so we essentially just had a poor vocal connection with no image. The interview took about 45 minutes, and was focused on both programming and statistics. The interviewer, although nice, was very hard to understand. The questions were not terribly difficult, but did require some thought.
    By the end however, the interviewer seemed as if they wanted to get on with their day. They answered my questions with "it depends", and were not descriptive. Based on the other Glassdoor ratings, I'm not shocked. I had the feeling that the position was filled, and that they wasted 45 minutes of my time.

    Interview

    1. Phone screening interview conducted by the recruiter to go over my resume, ask about my interests, and career aspirations.

    2. Skype interview conducted by a manager going over a case with some basic analysis and a few behavioral questions.

    3. In-person interview conducted by pretty much everyone in the office:
         A. Some exercises on the computer to test my technical skills.
         B. Behavioral interview with a consultant and another analyst.
         C. Lunch where I had the opportunity to meet everyone in the office and ask questions.
         D. Behavioral interview with a senior consultant.
         E. Presentation conducted by me on a subject of my choice to a small group of consultants and analysts.
         F. Case interview with a consultant and a few logistical questions by the recruiter.

    Everyone was friendly and I felt like there was a strong emphasis on cultural fit.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Summit, NJ

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at C1 Consulting (Summit, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I began the interview process at C1 in March 2016. The process took 3+ months. There were 4 rounds of interviews; a phone screen, an online aptitude test followed by a few basic behavioral questions, a skype case interview of interpreting data, and finally an in-person interview at their Summit, NJ location consisting of a few behavioral interviews, two case interviews, and a presentation by myself on a topic of my choosing.

    After the in-person case interviews and presentation, I was told that it would be up to a week to hear a decision. I waited over 3 weeks, and still did not hear back. In the 4th week after the interview, I received an email stating that I was not chosen for the Business Analyst role. That's nice, but what about for the role for which I interviewed and applied? This made it seem like they did not put in the effort to even remember or look up which role I applied for when sending me the rejection email.

    The people who interviewed me all along the way seemed very nice and perhaps would have been a pleasure to work with, but I do feel as if I were tossed around and left hanging throughout the interview process, as it frequently took longer than they said it would for them to let me know if I made it to the next stage.
