    Management Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership.

    Interview

    Had a phone call Interview and was pretty brief. Interviewer went on several minutes about how great the firm is and their projected growth. I then went over my resume at a high level. Interviewer then brought up the question of compensation and inquired how much I was currently making. I told him I'd rather not disclose that. He took that as an offense and informed me if I don't disclose that information, the interview process will not move forward. At this point, the interviewer was coming off extremely aggressive and pompous. Just by his attitude alone, I knew this wasn't the right firm.
    I didn't disclose my compensation because I knew he was going to use that as a baseline and low ball as much as possible. I told him no and ended the call.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership.

    Interview

    Easier than other consultancies; less structured; very easy tests done on MS Word and Excel. Don't need to prepare anything to pass those. Just a formality. Do the tests on your end at a fixed time with emailed files. That is the level of operation.

    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership (Houston, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It was very informal. I applied one day on LinkedIn then got an email requesting an interview the next day. The interview was the following week, in which I was told I would meet with one of the employees. I met with her but had an additional interview I didn't know was happening until I got there. The same thing happened for the second interview, in which I met with the director of the company and the same additional employee. The questions were more of an assessment of what I thought of the company, plus what I brought to the table and hoped to achieve in my future.

    I was skeptical of some of the reviews I had read on here going into it, and I noticed the company denying someone else's claim of receiving an offer right after the interview. As I left, I got a call from one of the people I met, asking me to come back to the office to work out the structure of an offer. I wasn't able to, but I received it over the phone (and written over email) later that afternoon.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you think we do here? (The rest was more conversational, just stating what I had experienced and us talking in unstructured conversation about the job and the company.)   Answer Question

    Thanks for the candid review. Just to clarify - you received an offer after your second round of interviews a week later. Not during your first interview. Best of luck to you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership.

    Interview

    Included phone and in person interviews, as well as an excel-based proficiency test. Met with one of the managers on a current project (sort of a second internal interview to see if they wanted me on their project) and with some of the Houston staff. There weren't many questions out of the ordinary - work experience, prior clients, leadership experience, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about a time that I had to step up and take control of a situation even though it wasn't my responsibility.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership (Houston, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was an extremely odd and unprofessional interview. They asked me bizarre questions and the interviewer was finishing up their lunch while interviewing me. Honestly though, not sure why they would call me in and not take the interview seriously. I have posted some of the crazy questions I was asked. As I write them out I am realizing now more than ever just how ridiculous this company is.

    Interview Questions

    • "Who would win in a fight between Spiderman and Batman?" "What's your favorite Disney Princess?"
      "Tell me a bedtime story." "Can you say: 'Peter Pepper Picked a Pickled Pepper' three times in a row without stuttering." "Would you be willing to help the boss's wife with things such as grocery shopping and mowing her lawn?" "Can you sing me your favorite song?"

    Fact check on this fake/troll review that was written to damage our recruiting efforts: 1) Recruits are given the phone number of The Lab's employee they are to call. No Lab employees call recruits ... More

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn and got an email from HR about one week later for an on-site interview. Was scheduled for one person but ended up talking to 6 people. No hard questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership (Houston, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I filled out an online application from their site. I got a call the very next day and was asked to come in for an in person interview. I was offered a job on the spot (desperate), but chose to reject it due to a poor interview experience. Also, because the pay being offered was not worth it for what I would be getting myself into.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of personality questions, such as "Do you use coupons" "If you could be any animal, what would you be" "Boxers or briefs". I was honestly weirded out by the questions, but apparently that's how all of the Fortune 2,000 companies are hiring today.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt like the company wasn't the least bit serious about what they do. The interviewer was on his phone and finishing up his lunch. I have never been so disrespected in my life as I was during the hour I spent at The Lab.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Lab Consulting Partnership.

    Interview

    Very long and tedious. All phone interviews. Spoke with 6 people for a company that has 50 max was excessive. After numerous discussions about my background and experience; I did not find out until hired how different their consulting methodology was from every other organization with whom I have worked. Not for the better, I must add.

    Interview Questions

    • Same questions from different individuals. It seems they do not talk or share notes.   Answer Question
