    Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through Indeed.com after an initial phone interview I was invited to the Chicago Office for an on site interview where I met with two VPs and a manager. The interviews were pretty standard although I ended up having a phone interview with one person instead. I did not get an offer and was not told by the hiring manager for at least a month after asking multiple times.

    Core Consultant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    My interview process for the core program was slightly different since I was referred. A part of being referred was first completing a half hour phone interview where they gauge your skill based on your resume and do a few behavioral questions. A week after, I did an onsite interview at the local office with a VP and two managers (about 30-45 mins each), focusing on a different area (technical skill, behavioral, and your resume). I was not involved in any individual or group cases. Three days later I was offered the job. It's very important to ask them questions towards the end. They leave the last ten minutes for that, and this is how they gauge your interest in the company.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in August 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me via email about their company and that there were several openings. No detail was provided beyond a basic title in the solicitation. I researched the company online and it appeared to be well regarded in their industry. Therefore, I responded to the recruiter that I would like to learn more. The recruiter no-showed the first interview. She contacted me a day later and apologized and rescheduled the interview. She was 20 minutes late to this interview. Despite asking me no questions, she spent the first 5 minutes telling me how I had a great background. She then proceeded to ask me which position I was most interested in. I responded that she hadn't yet told me about any of them and I asked if she could provide more detail. Fast forwarding ...she was not able to provide anything tangible about the roles nor did she really ask me any questions about my background. She left the interview with the promise that she would send me the job descriptions, along with an application. She also asked that I respond to her email with availability to talk with the hiring manager. Guess what...the email never came....
