    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Novantas (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    There were two rounds of interviewing. The first was on-campus where you meet with 2 people for about 30 minutes. They asked resume and brainteaser questions. I heard that sometimes they do case studies. They second round was a super day at their office where I met with 3 people and we went through resume, behavioral, and case studies.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Novantas (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    After applying thru my college recruiting network I received an interview about a week later.

    The first round consisted of 2 30 minute on-campus interviews: the first was half behavioral/fit and half brainteaser (4 people need to cross a bridge at night, only two can cross at a time, must carry a lantern to cross, they walk at different paces across the bridge 10 minutes, 5 minutes, 2 minutes 1 minute find the fastest solution) the other interview was less behavioral but had some quick number tests (role a 6 sided die whats your expected value, whats your expected value if you can choose to role again) and a case (due to the recent hurricanes your fresh fruit restaurant has COGS decrease by 20% do you increase or decrease your prices). After a few days I got a call back and scheduled the second round for a week later.

    Second Round at the NY office: luncheon with new associates and 3 45 minute interviews. Each interview started with behavioral/fit questions then progressed into a case.

    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.
