    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Houston, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews for college hires, one on campus and one in house. Friendly interviewers and a forgiving process. Both technical and behavioral interviews on both sides. As long as you don't completely bomb in one area you should do okay.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you filter and sort an array of foods based on properties using common loops.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Their hiring process is a personal interview on the spot and then they decide within the higher ranked employees in the company if the interviewer should get the open position. It is realively easy to get a job if there is an open position and you have the needed qualifications but if there is no open spot its almost impossible for them to open more positions even if they have many empty desks.

    Interview Questions

    • -Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
      Also asked conflict resolution questions with a mix of office ethics.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Dallas, TX) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I was a campus hire so my interview process will be relevant for those just graduating from college. I submitted my resume to the university job portal and was called for an in-person interview taking place at my school. I interviewed with a senior manager for 30 minutes and was called one week later for a final round of interviews at the Hitachi Dallas office. The day before the final interview, there was an interview dinner with several VPs, managers, and consultants which helped us break the ice before the interview day and meet the other interviewees. The day of the final interview was a full day (8am-4pm) with 3 different interviews (behavioral and a little technical) as well as lunch with consultants and a case study.

    Consultant Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Mostly spoke to managers and directors about my experience. Interviews were very straightforward and there were not many trick questions. They were looking for people who could think on their feet and be able to handle many different scenarios. For junior level consultants they were mostly concerned about learning agility and technical skills.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was very unexpected or difficult, just talk about experience, be able to quickly adapt to environments.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate my salary by 5K, but mostly because I had prior work experience and a masters degree. Most C1/C2s were not able to do the same.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in November 2012.

    Interview

    All behavior questions. It was my first real in person interview. So I think I didn't act confident enough. The whole process the interviewer keep throw one and another question to me from a piece of "question sheet". I should've led the conversation more.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Seattle, WA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Started with an on campus interview followed by a second round of interviews. The second round of interviews was a full day. The morning session consisted of multiple behavioral interviews with management as well as a case interview. The case interview was more strategic and less financially based. The night session was a team case question followed by a presentation.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Submit a resume at school's career fair and have an on campus interview. The recruiter is very nice and the conversation is kinda casual. Most questions are classic behavioral questions, and they also ask you very basic ER database questions. It last about 45 mins. I didn't receive the next round interview though, probably my knowledge to consultant business is very limited

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Denver, CO) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I applied through my University's job board. I got an initial on campus interview, and then a second one a week later. Both interviews were very traditional (tell me about a time when...) interviews. I ended up getting selected for the in office interviews. The process was slightly unorganized. But was not overly difficult. I met with four upper managers and the geographic VP. These interviews were much more conversational, and very relaxed.

    They never called me like they said they would. I got an about two weeks late, from a member of the recruiting team (who I'd never talked to before) saying they "selected a candidate who better fit the qualifications of the job posting." Very basic and traditional rejection email.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have any questions for me? (Seems easy, but after weeks of interviewing, you sort of run out of questions...)   Answer Question
