Associate Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

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

Interview

Pro: (hard to think) but it makes you reflect your life and possible warning of having the worst person as your supervisor
Con: Worst interview experience ever.
Applied through campus career website, got a phone interview offer.
Interviewer was rude, the case was vague with no information what so ever.
Maybe they are doing stress interview.
Every answer I gave, interviewer cut my words and I almost felt like she wanted me to fail this interview.
She was definitely not happy even when I was giving appropriate and tailored answer that a manager from the major consulting firm that I met during a practice interview night complimented about.
Not sure if I want to work with them even if I get an offer.
I hope this interviewer was intentionally giving me a hard time, or she's an exceptional character in this firm.
If not I believe there is absolutely no reason for anyone to work here unless your family is dying from extreme poverty.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at GEP in October 2017.

    Interview

    I got an email from the manager after a few days of applying. I was very disappointed with the interview. I think the company should target students who have studied procurement and not engineering since they relate pretty much everything in your resume to procurement which is kind of annoying. The case given for case interview was ambiguous and had no data whatsoever.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at GEP (Chicago, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Happy hour by invitation prior to resume drop, then on-campus 30 minute interview with some behavioral questions and a short case. I never heard back after the first round and then many weeks later received an email thanking me for attending their Super Day, but regretfully they couldn't extend me an offer. This happened to several people at my school and struck me as very unprofessional, since we never went to their Super Day and never heard results from first round in the first place.

    Short interview through my university, 30 minutes, done on campus, half behavioral and half case. Two interviewers, both very genial and friendly.

    Interview

    The worst experience I had in my career life. The interviewer is not professional and doesn't know what is respect at all, he was playing his phone all the time. Actually I met this guy at career fair and tried to talk to him. But he had a cool face and seemed not interested in candidates. My classmates felt the same way.
