    Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Seattle, WA) in February 2008.

    Interview

    Interview was very well organized. The recruiter and recruiting team have a well-run process which includes a phone interview, then several 1:1 meetings with various levels of the consultancy (manager to VP). It also has case studies to test your knowledge. Hitachi also does a lot of behavioral interviewing. Very very well run!

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in May 2016.

    Interview

    Interview Process took 2+ months and consisted of phone interviews/conversations/ and the final in-person interview with the VP. All of which were very laid back. They had already seen that I was qualified from my resume and employee referral, but what was important was the company culture fit. Everyone's interview experience is different, but be prepared for a not so fast turn around in getting hired and working here.

    I had phone interviews with two project managers, and then I had a one hour phone-test assessment, that asked me about previous employee experiences, how I react in conflict situations, and top three things I am proud of accomplishing thus far (career or personal).

    After two months of back and forth, silence, and then contact, I was offered and accepted the position two weeks after meeting the VP.

    Senior UI Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in May 2017.

    Interview

    First round of interview was technical and it was good. Then next they took around 5 rounds randomly. Their HR will call suddenly and will ask someone X want to speak. I cleared all the rounds and HR told they will release offer soon as they are waiting for approval. Next day he told its been approved by india head and some other formalities are remaining and they will release the offer soon. Next day i called but he didn't replied and suddenly he called evening and asking for some skype round. Then they told they will release the offer and let me know. Then i call many times there were no response. I had two more offers and i clearly told them they need to clear the things fast. They didn't responded and i joined other company which is a product based.

    After someday that HR called me again and asking for joining Hitachi. I asked where he was these many days and he is very care less. I heard many things before about Hitachi and their culture. You can even find here so much bad about the company, their own employees are complaining about management. This HR proved infront of me. I will never suggest anyone to join this kind of company who don't bother about persons.

    Opportunities never wait for anyone.

    Core Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    First round will be a phone screening process with Hr. Next round is an in-person interview with 2 managers and Vice-President. Questions asked were primarily how you handled various tasks and projects.

    Negative experience because if you're going to have 3 different heads of leadership interview candidates, they should really all be on the same page with each other; two were emphasizing a lot on work/life balance and how your work experience can be utilized in this position. The other manager spoke heavily about there being no work/life balance and questioned what value someone would have if their experiences don't stem from the tech sector.
