    Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I spoke to a guy who had me on speaker phone. He asked me right off the bat if I had reached out to his boss. I had via LinkedIn and he wasn't too happy about it.

    He was walking around so his voice was fading in and out. I asked him if he could take me off speaker but he didn't. He said "cool" to a few of my answers. He didn't give me much time and was extremely young in his approach.

    I have ZERO interest in this company now. What a turn off!

    Interview

    Fairly easy and simple. Asked basic questions throughout the interview and wanted to know your personality and previous work experience. Research the company but know that the company is a little confusing until you are completely engulfed in the experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Talent Acquisition contacted me after my application.
    Had first interview over the phone.
    He promised to get back to me within the following week which never happened.
    It's totally fine not moving on to next step but what turns me down is ignorance.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a woman who was friendly and asked very basic questions about my resume. The interview was quite bland though, I wish I could have talked more about myself as a person instead of answering generic questions. Decent experience overall.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty straightforward. I first applied online and then was contacted for a phone interview. After the phone interview, I was called into the local office for an in person interview, but a Skype interview was also an option. The interviewer had a copy of my resume with him and would ask me questions based on experiences listed on it. Also an emphasis on how you work on teams and how you handled a situation where you had to work with someone you didn't see eye to eye with.
