    Senior Cyber Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed with HR first then with Director/hiring manager next. Meeting went well. Got good feedback.

    After waiting for a week HR informed that the position they was thinking was not correct so they cannot bring me on until they find a slot that they can put me on a contract.

    This was a waste of time since their poor planning costed me valuable time.

    Standard online application process, asking for education, extra-curricular and other details

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    First call was with an outside Recruiter. He was great and thought I was a strong candidate based on cultural fit as well as professional experience. The second round was another phone call, this time directly with a member of the consulting team, more culture fit and "tell us about yourself and your background" questions. The last round was an intensive 3-hour in-person process. First hour was with two Consultants who walked through my CV and probed every project and previous job. Very detailed. 2nd hour was a case study with two consultants. No prep time and the case was given orally. Needed to identify weaknesses in the P&L (they had one when I asked) and make recomendations on whether or not to drop a product line. I was then given a 2nd case study focusing on change management and workforce augmentation. The last hour was with the VP. He came off like he didn't want to be there and was annoyed I was wasting his time.
