    Interviewer's had no knowledge themselves. Was very amateurish. I interviewed for a system's engineer role in IT. I was asked a few linux questions , some very basic and other's did not make any sense. The individual asking the question did not have any experience / knowledge. Declined the offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Opera Solutions (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview; my interviewer seemed really tired and did not want to be there. Basic questions about why want to work at Opera, etc. Some resume questions. And the "case" was not really a case, more like brainstorm some ideas.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Opera Solutions (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    2 on campus interviews. First one was taken by a 'fresher' working at this firm for almost 6 months. General behavioral questions. Second interview consisted of a case study based on ATM booths.
    Worst part is that they never even bothered to inform back regarding the decision, despite of me sending them several emails.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Opera Solutions (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    First 5 minutes, interviewer is trying to find my resume. He couldn't find in his mailbox, citing HR might have forgot to send. I told him I can send him and in mean time referred to my linkedin profile. Took another 5+ minutes to go through and then technical phone interview begins. He blanked out for at least 4 times; for more than 3 minutes while asking questions; deciding or google what to ask. He started with my grad projects, moving to thesis. He asked me do you remember engineering courses in Bachelors, ok name them and then asked about first year of engineering questions ranging from transistors, ohm's law etc. not relevant but still. After 40 minutes, winded up saying someone will get in touch with you in few days for next round. Didn't hear anything form HR for next 2 weeks, mailed her and next day got reply sorry for applying, we are not moving ahead.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Opera Solutions (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Hiring through on-campus process. Two-round interview process with three interviews each.
    First round is on-campus, second round in their office in Jersey City. They may take a while to give an offer after final round (up to 2 months for some people in my class...)

    Typical consulting interviews - no surprise:
    1) Personality interview (15 - 20 min)
    2) Case study (15 - 20 min)
    A brainteaser if time permits.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Opera Solutions (Jersey City, NJ) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through college career posting. On campus first round and in-office final round; standard 2 half-hour interviews in each round. First round mostly behavior/fit questions with a bunch of brainteasers; second round all case questions. Interviewers are very nice and easy to talk to and questions very fair (in my opinion), but it took them an excessively long time to inform you their decisions (first round in early October, second round in late November, decision in early/mid January).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Opera Solutions (Jersey City, NJ) in November 2012.

    Interview

    First round interview began with two phone calls, each around 30 minutes. First was a business case dealing with churn and how to stop it for an online dating site. It involved some easy math and you had to talk about ways to stop churn and data you might want. The second was a fit interview, all pretty basic stuff, like why consulting, etc. In person interview about 2 weeks later. It consisted of 3 interviews, each about 45-60 minutes. First interview had some fit elements and a brief case about credit card fees and attrition. Second interview was a supply chain case (which was very confusing if you're not familiar with the terminology, and the interviewer was seemingly very pressed for time and really rushed me through it, which I think took away from the interview overall). Final interview was mostly fit with a brainteaser thrown in. Heard back from them about a month or so after my in person saying I was not going to be made an offer.
