    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Novantas (Somerville, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    a brief personal interview about myself, my previous academic and work experiences. They also asked about why I want to do consulting and why I want novantas particularly. After that they asked two brainteasers that were kind of difficult to answer on point. Other than that they didn't ask for any case questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Novantas (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I found them through my university's on campus recruiting and applied online. I was then contacted to set up a first round interview. It was two 30-minute interviews with two different people. One person asked logic questions and behavioral questions. The other interviewer gave an open ended case.

    Interview Questions

    • The case was very open ended and didn't provide much information on how to solve it. They just wanted to see how I thought.   Answer Question

    Had two back to back interviews that lasted an hour in total. Both were nice and friendly. The first interviewer had me walk through my resume and then answer a couple of brain teasers. The second interviewer had me walk through my resume and then asked me a brain teaser and a case.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Novantas (New York, NY) in February 2014.

    Interview

    First round on campus, 2 30 min interviews. First had brainteasers. Had the rubix cube one followed by the scale one first with 1 bag then 2. Second interview was fit and a "case" which was not really a case at all. Question about elevator efficiency which I'm pretty sure everybody struggled with.

    Interview Questions

    • The case about elevators. Wanted you to optimize elevator traffic within a 25 story building. More of a brainstorming session than anything, but caught me off guard.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting. First round on campus, consisted mostly of brainteasers and then a pricing case. Second round at New York office. Began with lunch in the office with the associates -- had a very good conversation with one of them. Three interviews followed; contained many more brainteasers than interviews for other consulting firms, and the cases were rather short. Two of the interviewers seemed rather unprepared though, coming up with questions on the spot.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Novantas (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Two rounds.

    First round on-campus, with two 30-minute interviews. One was only brainteasers, and my interviewers nudged me through the tougher ones. The other was an open-ended case. Got back to me same day.

    Second round in office, with three 45-minute interviews. There was time to network with a bunch of friendly associates beforehand. Interviewers were more senior staff. Lots of brainteasers again, although whether there were also cases depended on the interviewer. Everyone was nice, and my experience was really more like having interesting conversations with interesting people than a formal evaluation.
