    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at CGN Global.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview and then an in-person interview after submitting writing samples. Between myself and two other candidates, it took these clowns three months to make a decision, and they didn't even bother to tell me until I hounded them.

    Business Transformation Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CGN Global (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the HR for a screening round. After clearing the screening round, I gave a technical interview which involved few analytical questions related to my resume (45 mins)

    The last and final round was scheduled to be on a Thursday and it was supposed to be a panel round where I had to present a case study findings. I prepared for my final round and just 1-2 hours before the scheduled time, I received an email from the HR saying that the panel isn't available for that particular day and time. She asked me whether I am free the next week. Having no other choice, I gave her my availability for the next week and hoped to hear back from her soon.
    3-4 weeks have passed since that conversation (Feb 2017) and I still haven't heard back from her. I mailed the HR thrice, also called on mobile and left a voice mail to ask for the next possible schedule.

    If the company doesn't want to proceed with my final round of interview, the least they could do was communicate with me. This was certainly the most unprofessional way to handle a candidate in a final round of interview. I still don't understand why recruiters behave like this when it comes to having a clear communication with the candidates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CGN Global (Peoria, IL).

    Interview

    First round: Phone Interview (HR screening) basic questions to gauge candidates verbal skills. if the candidate is a lawful immigrant, then CGN would understand work visa sponsorship requirements for the candidate.

    Second round: Phone Interview (Sr. Manager/Partner of relevant function). The functional team will most likely reach out to you for next telephonic interview. This is most likely the case, if you are being hand picked for an upcoming assignment. Questions are around your experience and working knowledge in your relevant field of operations.

    Third round: On-site Interview (2 rounds, plus case study presentation). This is most likely the final round where you are brought in-house for a face to face interview. There might be multiple panel interviews at the time, where manages/partners from other functions would assess your skill-set to ascertain if you are a fit for their team.

    There is a case study presentation, pretty much inline with any other consulting company. Your analytical skills, thought process and presentation skills are evaluated. Since you are applying to be a consultant, don't hold yourself back with making your slides appealing to the audience. As Consulting companies make money of off fancy presentations (likes of Big 3)
