    Had an on-campus interview that contained two 45-minute interviews. I was later invited back for final round interviews at their office in Chicago, which was two days.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Chilled out but physically tiring. They take you for a team building activity to see you strategies and skills. It is a very different but a fun experience. After this team activity you have an hour and have dinner with the practitioners. They also want you to go to the bars with them (this is not mandatory). I feel they are looking for a cultural fit. They care about behavioural answers. However, the office is very small. It was smaller than I expected but well made. It was fun day!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Hitachi Consulting on campus at the University of Illinois. They had an info session after the career fair and two rounds of interviews on campus. I was shocked to find that VP's were at the info session and interviews - very cool! About a week after 2nd round interviews, I was extended an invitation to the office visit in Chicago. The office visit consisted of a hotel stay, team building activity, very nice dinner/drinks, and then interviews at the office the next day. Part of the final round interview, was a group case, which proved to be challenging as you had to come up with explanations for other team members decisions if you didn't talk about it before hand. All in all, they are just looking for good team leaders during the interview process. Everyone was extremely nice and welcoming. A week after the office visit, I was extended an offer and had maybe 5 people call me over two weeks to see if I had questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Please describe a time as team leader when something didn't go as planned. What did you do?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Started on campus at my university, and eventually led to on site interviews at their Chicago office. Very friendly people, and the culture is amazing. I knew when I was on site for final rounds that I could see myself at Hitachi after graduation. The culture is so key especially in consulting when most people travel. To be able to secure a welcoming culture like that is challenging, and Hitachi nails it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Chicago, IL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Was a pretty lengthy process. After the initial interviews, did not hear anything for a couple of months and then things moved forward again. Turns out, they were waiting for the projects to lined up before proceeding.

    Dallas is the main hub, so after the phone screens, you are asked to come down to Dallas to meet the crew for another round of interviews.
