    Healthcare Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Phone screening interview, then a phone behavioral interview. Then a morning at the office with a couple of interviews - I believe it was another behavioral interview, a case interview, a learning interview where you talk with someone about the role you are applying for, and a Q&A panel where you get to ask analysts any questions you have. Everyone was very friendly.

    Interview Questions

    • The case interview was about a hospital cafeteria that needed financial help. What would you do to figure out the problem, what would you recommend, what do you think the possible downsides would be from your recommendation, etc. The interviewer asks guiding questions, which is really helpful.   Answer Question

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied, got an interview on campus about 2 weeks later, and then was offered a final interview that same day and went to New York for a half day interview at the end of the week. It took them 4-5 weeks to get back to me with their final decision.

    The one on campus involved some behavioral questions, some about my resume, and a small case interview. The final interview took place in their New York office. An employee reached out before to help me with the interview process/ answer any questions. Once I got to the New York office, I had breakfast with two employees and three other applicants, where we asked questions about working at the company. I was then was taken to the office I would be in for the rest of my time there. I had two case interviews and one behavioral one. My first interview involved one of the employees coming in and explaining the case. He gave me a packet of four or five patients involved in a medical trial and a page describing the rules and regulations that surrounded medical trials. From there, I was given 45 mins-1 hour to determine whether the medical trail was compliant with regulations. The same person then came in and we discussed what I had found and working at the firm.

    For the second case, I was given a computer. Someone came in and gave me another packet with three questions that resembled word problems. She explained the problems to me and gave me an hour to work on them. These questions regarded market growth, company growth, and what macroeconomic factors of could cause growth/ shrinkage. I used excel (mostly for relatively easy calculations) and had to do research. When she came back in, we went over the problems. She also asked me about where I found my research and how/why I trusted the sources.

    The behavioral interview part was pretty straight forward. I was asked questions about my resume, strengths, weaknesses, and a time when I had to deal with conflict in a group and had to learn something quickly.

    Negative Experience
    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.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received a quiz (pre-interview screen) to complete before on campus interviews to assess compatible skills they were looking for I guess. Did not receive an in person interview. Quiz seemed very technical/specific for a consulting role in healthcare.

    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.
