    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

    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

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Novantas (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone interview with a junior associate that consisted of some brain teasers, a few personal questions, and a very basic case. Was called back for an in-office interview the next day. You show up around 9 am, are treated to breakfast and a little chitchat with the other interns. Each intern is called up for three 45 minute case interviews, all of which were done one-on-one in the many little office spaces. The cases were objectively pretty difficult, especially the market sizing one.
