    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Dallas, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    After a phone interview I got advanced to an in office interview. Sat in a room and 3 separate interviewers came to me. Each lasted 45 minutes. I think because it was based off of an employee referral, it was very relaxed. No case interview.

    I think I was expecting something more rigorous and they said I came off nervous and that I should come back and interview with the campus recruits.

    Interview Questions

    • Three greatest accomplishments and how you got there. Examples of leadership.   Answer Question

    I had an on-campus interview at my university and then 2 weeks later, final rounds in their office.
