    Application

    I interviewed at Novantas (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed at Novantas in July of 2017. The process was fairly straightforward (much more organized than other interviews I've been in) and involved a variety of brain-teasers and personality-based questions. I made it past two stages but could not continue due to a conflicting offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Novantas in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional!! After making me go through 8 interviews, they did not even have the decency to communicate their decision. This is despite repeated follow-ups from my side. Shows a complete lack of regard for my time, leaving me disgusted.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Novantas in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and a recruiter contacted me in one week. After telling her about my availability for the phone interview, the recruiter disappeared until the last minute on my schedule. Then followed with a phone interview with questions about my resume.

    I was told I passed the initial screen, and was asked about my schedule again. However, I haven't hear from the recruiter since then even if I followed up so many times. Maybe the entire company went bankrupt, if not, they are super unprofessional!!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Novantas (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied through on-campus recruiting.

    First round: two, thirty minute interviews with alums on campus. Both were half fit, half case. Received a call-back the day after. Recruiting did a great job with organizing travel.

    Second round: lunch with other candidates and associates, followed by three, forty minute interviews with high-level employees (Principal through MD). Each interview started with general resume/fit questions and a chance for me to ask questions, followed by a case. The cases corresponded to each interviewer's personal style, so it's possible to get brainteasers, math-involved sizing/pricing, or more qualitative business case scenarios. Received a phone call two days later and a formal offer four days later.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Novantas in October 2016.

    Interview

    This was a first-round interview. It consisted of 2 back-to-back 30-minute interviews; 1st interview: brainteaser + case; 2nd interview: 10 min. behavioral ("tell me about a time you've faced a problem") + case. The problems were less structured than I thought they would be and it seemed like they just wanted to brainstorm with me more than anything else.

    Interview Questions

    • Brainteaser was simply a probability problem. First case: should the CEO stop this bus route. Second case: how much would you bid for your favorite restaurant?   Answer Question
