Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Associates.

Interview

Process took a month or so. Initial phone screen and 'Super Day' interviews, which included case, written test, and behavioural. Written and cases were not particularly quantitative or challenging, cases were largely interviewer led, practice and familiarity with basic frameworks would be sufficient. Come across as calm, thoughtful, and confident. Behavioural is key as Kaiser is heavy on 'culture' fit--friendly, hardworking, curious, self-motivated, team player.

Overall great experience, everyone is friendly, cares about applicant experience, interview process was convincing that Kaiser is an employer of choice.

Interview Questions

  • Nothing was particularly difficult. Written requires quick ability to process information into digestible format.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Brief and limited, dependent on experience level

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kaiser Associates (Washington, DC) in November 2008.

    Interview

    There was an on campus interview with two recruiters, they asked me a case interview question about how many passengers leave JFK airport on any given day, and asked other background questions. For the second round they flew me to DC and had a series of 5 or 6 hour long interviews with all sorts of different firm members, including two pretty strenuous case interviews.

    In general, I liked everyone I interacted with.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Associates (Washington, DC) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Two phone screens followed by an all-day in-person interview. Phone interviews include the typical fit questions, a walkthrough of your resume, and a quick (5-10min) "brain teaser"

    Interview Questions

    • during the all-day series of in-person interviews, one will include a market sizing opportunity based on limited financial data from competitors. Others may provide a several year financial history of a company along with intentionally vague details about competitors' current operations and market share. Within a 20-30 minute timeline, you are asked to develop a market growth strategy citing specific opportunities and areas for growth (e.g. new markets or products) that can help Company X beat competitors in the mid-to-long run   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Associates (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I am still in the very beginning stages of the interviewing process, but my initial phone call with a principal from the company was so nice. The interviewer was incredibly friendly and sold the company to me without having to try - he loves it there and it's obvious. I felt comfortable able to ask anything too.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kaiser Associates in February 2011.

    Interview

    The first half of my phone interview consisted of various behavioral questions - tell me about yourself/walk me through your resume, tell me about your last work experience, tell me about a time you worked with a team, etc. The second half consisted of an estimation/sizing question, as is typical for most consulting interviews. I was asked to estimate the market volume of Diet Cokes sold in the US each year.
