The process had two rounds, one one-on-one, then a super day with behavioral and technical questions and a case. Nothing too hard, but they never got back to me with a reply. Very unprofessional.

I interviewed at NERA Economic Consulting

Interview

I met with two former Associates with Nera who were now higher up in the company. There were mostly background questions, "Why Nera," "Why Economic Consulting," etc. We went through some classic resume questions and they allowed time to ask about the company and the worst itself. Steer away from too specific of questions, in my experience they simply cited confidentiality and were more comfortable answering more general things.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NERA Economic Consulting (London, England, England) in Nov 2020

Interview

Four-staged. First stage was a brief phone chat with the HR manager. Second stage was a 20-question test on logic, econ and stats. Third stage was the case study. The fourth should have been with the directors.

Interview Questions
  • We discussed two types of case studies: one focusing on competition economics, the other one focusing on econometrics. The latter simply consisted in explaining the concepts of biasedness and consistency. In the former they asked me about natural monopolies, price discrimination and collusion.

I applied online. I interviewed at NERA Economic Consulting (Washington, DC) in Nov 2020

Interview

Three rounds—first with an associate analyst (screening over zoom, very casual questions about interests and background). Then letters of recommendation and a writing sample were requested, as well as my preferences for location and practice area. Second round interview with two associate analysts at the practice I was applying to. The third round was six thirty-minute interviews in one day, a week later. No case questions, all behavioral or background-based, but this definitely varies dramatically by office and practice area. Everyone was very nice and encouraging.

Interview Questions
  • Explain your thesis/past economic research experience in detail. Do you think the results you estimated might be biased? Why?
  • Explain an economic concept of your choice in easy-to-understand language.
  • There are certain elements missing from your resume that are typically there for candidates we hire. Can you explain?

I applied online. I interviewed at NERA Economic Consulting (Washington, DC) in Nov 2020

Interview

The interview process consisted of a phone interview and then a super day of 5 interviews with people of various levels of seniority. The interviews were fairly straightforward with a combination of behavioral and semi-technical questions. There was no case question. The most frustrating part was that after going through all of those interviews they never got back to me with a yes/no answer.
