Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Loft9 Consulting.

Interview

3 step interview process. Begins with interview more focused on culture and fit, followed by a standard resume deep dive, and finished with a case study interview.
There is a standard interview script which interviewers follow, however they may and will deviate based on the conversation. Interviewers are consultants at the firm, and know what is needed for typical roles at some of the clients.

    Interview

    This was one of the best interview process I have ever been through. There are 3 interviews and one writing sample. The first two interviews happened at a cafe and the final interview was with a partner at the Kirkland office. The interviews were very engaging and everyone I talked to felt like people I would want to work with. They have a 48 hour turnaround after each interview which is absolutely amazing. They stayed true to this commitment throughout the process. I am very excited to be joining the Loft9 team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Loft9 Consulting (Denver, CO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was conducted in 4 stages: 1) in-person interview to establish cultural and personality fit, 2) written assignment, 3) in-person interview with a focus on practice area experience, highlights from past work experience, and depth of skillsets, 4) verbal case study questions.

    Each interview offered opportunities for questions and dialogue, for the interviewee to get to know the company as much as the company gets to know the candidate. It became clear through the interview process that Loft9 sincerely values creating and maintaining relationships, as I was invited to connect on LinkedIn and keep in touch with the contacts I had met, no matter the outcome of the interview process. Overall, this was one of the most positive interview experiences I've ever had. Loft9 clearly sets a high bar for professionalism and genuine partnerships within their professional network.

    Interview Questions

    • The final interview questions were verbal case studies in which a project scenario or business problem is described, and the interviewee needs to describe their approach to untangling the issue / producing a solution. Some questions involve engaging with the interviewer as if they were the main contact described in the case study scenario.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Loft9 Consulting (Seattle, WA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The process is as the other reviews described it. There is an initial interview to ensure culture fit. Then there is a written test to determine which category you fit in (project management, process improvement, data analyst) and to view your writing skills. The second interview is to go over your background and skills. I can't comment on the third interview as I was rejected after the second. They have a 48 hour turnaround time which is really amazing considering how other companies drag their feet or never get back to you.

    The consultants were professional and kind. The questions were standard and from a form template. Where I had an issue was with the environment. Both in person interviews were at a coffee shop. The first interview wasn't too bad because it was noisy in the place and the tables around had multiple people who were having conversations, so no one was paying attention to us. The second interview though was horrible. The coffee shop was small and the tables were literally a foot apart. There was only one table left so we grabbed it. The place was super quiet, and since the people on both sides of me were by themselves, they just listened to my interview the entire time (they stayed there for over an hour). I could have put my hands out and touched both of them. When you interview, it's nerve-wracking as is, but to have to do it in front of an audience, I was embarrassed and uncomfortable. I couldn't think clearly as I just wanted out of there. I knew I bombed that interview, so I don't disagree with the interviewer's no hire. What's unfortunate though is that I could do the consultant job really well.

    My advice to management and recruiting is to ensure candidates are interviewing in a private area. If you want them to bring their best, then enable it by ensuring they are in a comfortable and trusting environment.
