    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Quick process wherein I met with one of the associate who did recruiting. Had a good chat with him and a senior associate, and was told that they would move very quickly.

    After a week they told me that they were awaiting details from a client, and they forwarded over the details to me to review.

    After that? Complete silence. I had to call them again to follow up almost a month later, and they came back with saying that another client might be interested.

    Unfortunately I still haven't received a response. It has been close to 2 months and am yet to be told whether or not I will be selected for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very lengthy and I had to travel to the office on three separate occasions. I interviewed with five people in total and took two personality tests. It was definitely the hardest interview I've ever had. You meet with a lot of people who ask you some tough questions. During one of my answers the interviewer challenged me, because he didn't think I was using my imagination...he was right. Everyone was very welcoming and very passionate about the business. I interviewed with CEO who seemed to really embody the company culture. He was especially genuine. The whole process was very professional and even though I did not get the position, I appreciated them taking the time to follow up with me and explain why they went in a different direction. Overall, I have nothing but good things to say about the whole process and what I learned about the company. I ended up accepting another position a couple months later that is truly a perfect fit for me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Initially I was very impressed by Makosi. I met with James in the office back in September and our conversation went very well. He brought in a colleague to meet with me after we finished. James wrapped up the interview and let me know they would be in touch in a day or two. I thought that was extremely fast for feedback, but I was happy to hear that as I was very interested in the role and qualified.

    I followed up the following day with a "thank you" email and requested feedback. To my disappointment, I never heard from James. I followed up with a phone call later in the week and then attempted one more time. Still, I have not heard anything from Makosi.

    It is very unprofessional in my opinion to bring a candidate in the office for an interview and then never speak a word to them after. They made it clear that I was not selected for the role, however I wish that someone would have had the courage to tell me.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Met with one of the partners. The interview was very short and up to the point. No silly questions such as "what is your biggest weakness". Mostly focused on whether or not one will be a good fit. The main focus tends to be on skills and overall client satisfaction. Overall interview experience was very positive. They are trying to guid their presence among investment banks.

    Recruiter: Global Markets Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The entire process took 1 week for 3 full rounds of interviews. I met with a total of 4 individuals.
    In brief, the most seamless interview experience I've had.
    I was introduced to the organization by Mr. James Fraser who throughout the entire process was hands on and quick on feedback. He called me almost right after each round to draw my thoughts on the company and the opportunity and communicated and coordinated next steps.
    What was refreshing was that while they were on point with questions assessing skills (i.e. recruitment processes and best practices), there was a consistent theme of pride in the company and the work they did/have done so far. The personality questions were interesting, too.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Great structure and process. Not as smooth as non-management consultancies but that is understandable. The questions were direct and smart. A mix of personality, critical thinking, and sharpness should be demonstrated.
