    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Telephone interview with HR. She provided a very vague description of the job. Very direct no soft skills.
    Telephone interview with the hiring manager.
    In person interview with 6 people. One of the female interviewers was 20 minutes late for the interview. She was dressed in sneakers yet they felt the need to remind me to dress in business attire; they should pass the same to their management staff. Hiring manager did not know how to conduct the test he created. Myself and the smartest and most attentive interviewer walked him through how he should have conducted the test.
    The environment didn't appear diverse. Nepotism exist - the hiring manager and another interviewer were both hired by the CIO.
    The use out date technology.

    Training Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Typical interview process, screening phone interview, in person one to one, then third interview with 3 different individuals. Hard process, but to be expected. They were wonderful in the process and gave me updates when they had them. Were always professional and they notified me with a phone call that I was the runner-up for the position, along with feedback of why. Extremely helpful and respectable in the way they did things. The way this team functioned as I candidated, I will be checking back for other open positions.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I completed 4 rounds of interviews in addition to an excel test. My third round included a case study and a math test. My first three rounds of interviews were very positive, but my final round really turned me off to the company. In the end, it wasn't a good fit for me; I'm glad I flew out to Chicago and learned that for myself.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was as follows:
    -Online Excel test
    -Campus Interviews (1 Case Interview, 1 Behavioral Interview)
    -Final Round Interviews (Panel Interview, 2 Behavioral Interviews)

    Overall, the process was very competitive, but Huron managed to make it feel low-stress during each step. Be yourself, be ready to be analytical, and be ready to discuss what you've worked on in the past and what you've learned from those experiences.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Met with 4 Huron employees for 45 minutes each. Same as others have mentioned about what I would do in certain situations and a case study. Four days later I received an email stating that I needed more integration experience. I find this difficult to believe as they recruit directly from colleges all the time. I strongly suspect that they didn't select me for hire because I am over 40.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred then had a phone interview with recruiter followed by a phone interview with director, and finally an in-person interview day with a case and 2 other behavioral interviews. The two phone interviews were very straightforward and were essentially a conversation. The in person interviews were also pretty relaxed, but they were certainly looking to keep you on your toes as far as making sure they can put you in front of a client.
