    Software Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Centric Consulting (Saint Louis, MO) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very informal. The first interview was a conversation in a coffee shop about what the company stands for, how they do business, and what they're trying to accomplish. I came with plenty of prepared questions for my interviewer, but the conversation flowed so naturally that I don't think I got to half of them.

    At the end of the first interview, I was told that there would be one more technical interview. I was also told that I could get access to anyone in the company if I wanted to talk to them more about their experience and the company - which is a very transparent move for the company.

    Before the second interview, I went through some basic training for all of the technologies mentioned in the first interview. However, none of that was needed, since the technical interview was almost as informal as the first - with the exception that it took place over the phone rather than in person. This interview was mostly about my technical background. It probably would have lasted less than 15 minutes, if I hadn't drawn it out with my own list of questions for the interviewer.

    ITSM Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Centric Consulting (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 4 people over a period of 2 months due to scheduling issues. One phone interview, 3 in-person interviews where we met at a local Starbuck's. Met with HR, Practice Leads, and Business Unit Lead.

    Very laid back interview style but very in-depth questioning. They certainly wanted to know if I could do the job but more importantly, they wanted to know if I would be able to fit into their culture.

    They are very transparent in their communications and they want to make sure that their staff handles things in the same manner. They shared a great deal about the work they do but equally as important, what they do in the community and for their employees.

    It is a very open structure with no real hierarchy and so everyone has the opportunity to reach out to anyone in the company to discuss things, even to the original partners of the organization who are very much a part of the every day fabric of the organization.

    As I mentioned, the process seemed to drag out a bit but once you are on board, you have a better appreciation as to why they go through the process they do in hiring people. Although it took some time, the communication in between interviews was good and HR did a good job of responding in a timely manner to my queries.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Centric Consulting in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to a job posting on glassdoor in Louisville, KY for a Java Developer. I never heard of this company before but decided to check it out based on reviews.

    I received a call one month after I applied. The recruiter told me all the positions were in the Cincinnati, OH. I'm not sure if they wanted people to travel or relocate but the job posting had none of this important information in it.

    I was put off that they posted a job listed in one market for a jobs somewhere else. If the job posting listed the information, (travel, relocation etc) that would be fine and more respectful of applicants time.

    Shared Services Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Centric Consulting (Indianapolis, IN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Dealing with Centric has been a unique experience, from the first contact they made with me until now. After submitting my resume for a posted position, I was contacted by a professional talent acquisition manager, Carmen, and not just a recruiter. She was knowledgeable, asked open ended questions, and related to my answers. The position I applied for was a newly created position and I did have a question she did not have an answer to. At the conclusion of our call, she let me know the next steps in the process. Carmen then followed up with an email and made arrangements to move forward. That email also had the answer to the question I had asked the day before.

    We stayed in constant communication throughout the process, with emails and calls, which made me comfortable. I knew when to expect a response and what would be expected next.

    Carmen was candid in her discussions with me. Centric believes in a transparency which is not what I was accustomed to in this industry. I found this to be the case with all of the individuals who interviewed me. Having that visibility, good and bad, was reassuring when I made my final decision.

    Interviews with Centric can be in person or phone. Without a central office, my interviews were held via the phone. It was no different than other screening calls I may have had in the past, and again, with their philosophy of being transparent, it was comfortable start to finish.

    Interview Questions

    • Centric is seeking the right candidates for their culture; those who value what they hold dear, people who are committed to the cause. Skills are also important, but unlike most midwest IT companies, they are determined to make the workplace one that people envy - and they have! Work/life balance. It's real here. They encourage it from the top down. So don't expect the typical "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" but be prepared for something geared toward the type of character you have, how you deal with people, problems, and stress.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Centric Consulting (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    There is no process - you will be subjected to being run to meet at different Starbuck's locations (really bad venue for interviews). Be prepared to invest a ton of time offering information about your experience and engagements. They will offer very little in terms of insight into their operation. Be prepared for each interviewer to be late or involved in a call while you try and guess who you're meeting.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Centric Consulting in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had talked with a recruiter for about 15 minutes over the phone. I tried to summarize my experience in account payable because this position is going to oversee the account payable function. I am a CPA and have over ten years of experiences in all accounting areas. The recruiter interrupted me before I can finish stating my applicable experiences and asked me what else drew me to apply for this company. I told her that I was very impressed by the company president actually took the time to reply to Glassdoor comments, which shows how much the company management cares for the team. And more importantly, the company's promotion of creativity and synergy is the biggest draw. I have been looking for such a company for a long time.
