    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting. Had an on campus interview, 1 on 1 with an alumni who currently works at Cambridge. Basic interview questions involving strengths, weaknesses, and interests. Make sure you know what the job you are applying for entails because they will ask about it. Asked back to go to a "super day." Excited for this opportunity!

    Junior Operations Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC (Arlington, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Couple other guys in there with me. We watched a power point on the company. Yes they will quiz you about what you saw. Several interviews as they pass you from room to room. Most of the people that interview you are very pushy and rude. They put you under pressure and see how you do. They have case studies, behavioral questions, and will even try to trip you up and catch you lying about anything you say. Very slimy people in my opinion which is why I did not accept the offer... well that and the job is for data input...ALL.DAY. everyday. Data input. And they underpay the heck out of you. Take this job only if you have some dead-end major like poly sci, or management or something. Finance, Accounting, and any other real degrees steer clear because it has nothing to do with any knowledge of anything you learned in school. Just typing in numbers all day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC (Arlington, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process is fairly standard and straightforward. There will likely be several rounds of interviews, which may include behavioral questions as well as a very moderate case study (much easier than other consulting firms). Buy a book of the most commonly asked interview questions and make sure you have answers to them.

    Junior Associate Interview

    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume online and received a call within a day or two. The initial phone interview was very easy and lasted about 15 minutes. I mostly spoke about time management, teamwork, time sensitivity of data and how these concepts related to my past work experience. I was invited to the open house interview, which like the first one was mostly resume and personality based questions. The interviews are very easy be comfortable and stress your high work ethic, your ability to work with teams and your commitment to finishing projects. Research MIG before you apply.
