    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in October 2018.

    Interview

    1. screening with healthcare hiring manager 2. strictly behavioral interview with healthcare director 3. video case with healthcare director 4. office visit with 3 parts I. coffee chat with two current analysts and another candidate II. fit/behavioral with director III. fit with associate Huron was very receptive in their communications to me and in answering my questions throughout the process. Each step was conducted very professionally and also felt very personal, which separated Huron from other places I interviewed with. The hiring manager was especially great. I got my offer letter the Monday after my Friday interview, and accepted after having a great experience all around.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    Online Assessment Test:
    --1 min self-introduction
    --10 excel questions
    Super easy as long as you have experiences with excel, you will be able to answer all correctly.

    Reference Form:
    Have to fill out a reference form with 2 references

    On-site Interview:
    One leadership interview and one case interview.
    Leadership interviews: very typical. Tell me a time...Why consulting...Why huron.....

    Case interview: very different from what you would prepare for McKinsey..Bain..etc. It is interviewer-led and the questions are very general. First two questions are about why this happened with this client and what is your solution..then the third question interviewer asked me to make a recommendation to upper level management ASSUMING that I have all my data and research done. There is a math problem following the case interview as well. Very simple.

    Overall experience is average. They made you feel very welcome but after the interview, they won't answer your follow-up email at all.

    Consulting Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was 5 stages. 1. Phone screen, 2. Excel assessment test, 3. 45 minute phone interview, 4. Case interview, 5. Final round office visit

    The interview process was rigorous but pleasant. Everyone I interacted with at Huron was very friendly and genuinely interested in getting to know me. The phone interviews were standard behavioral interviews but felt much more conversational than others I have undergone. The case study is both qualitative and quantitative but if you are familiar with general case interview approaches then you will be fine. Final round was an office visit with a couple of interviews with managers and consultants.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked many of the questions that previous reviews listed. Why Huron? Why consulting? Why this practice? then on to standard behavioral interview questions to gage your experience, fit, and working style. Find a way to turn the interview into a conversation.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Process starts with phone interview with recruiter, followed by two more phone interviews with managing directors. Following that is an invitation for the onsite interview day which consists of 4 interviews (Peer, Values, Case, Behavior). All interviewers were extremely friendly and could tell that they really enjoy being at Huron. Heard back next business day with offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    I went through 5 rounds of interviews. First one was a phone call with a general recruiter and the second one was with the main recruiter for this role. The third interview was a 45-minute behavioral interview, fourth was a 45-minute case interview. The final round was an in-person, 3 hour interview with an Analyst panel followed by two 45-minute interviews.

    Interview

    Very easy process overall. I applied through university and set up an interview about two weeks later. Started off with an hour long behavioral interview and questions regarding travel and how i heard about Huron. After the behavior interview was a 45 minute case study. Smooth process from start to finish but unfortunately did not get an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview had two parts - behavioral and case study. The behavioral was 4-5 of your basic behavioral questions asking about teamwork etc. The case study was easy to understand and the interviewer guided my answer (he asked me step by step questions). Overall the interviewers were very nice and easy to talk to - they were not trying to be intimidating at all.
