    Interview

    The Manager of Recruitment was very aggressive over LinkedIn to get me to talk to him. I appreciate that, but he's blown off 3 separate times for phone calls. I am not interested in working here if they can't respect a candidates time that I block off during my work day.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PowerPlan (Atlanta, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I believe there are 2 rounds of interviews. I believe the first round is a screening phone interview followed by the second round office visit interview. I never went through the screening phone interview; rather, I was invited for the office visit after talking to the recruiter and a few employees at our university career fair. The office interview process included one behavioral interview and an office tour. The behavioral interview was an hour long with 2-3 professionals.

    Did not negotiate, the compensation and benefits seemed pretty set for experienced hires. The pay is competitive so there was no need to negotiate.

    It consists of two interviews. One was a panel interview and second interview was a one on one interview. The interview was pretty straightforward.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PowerPlan (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process for college/university recruiting included a pre-interview social, one on-campus interview, and an on-site interview. They have a high GPA requirement (3.5 GPA) which they follow fairly strictly.

    During the on-site interview, they fed all the candidates lunch and allowed us to interact with the current employees to get a feel for the company culture. The questions were mostly behavioral in nature and not anything out of the norm. All the people I had the opportunity to interact with throughout the interview process were smart and friendly people.

    Interview

    Talk to a recruiter at college career fair and few days later got an email asking for a phone interview with one manager. The interview asked me about my SAS certifications and one SQL question. Some basic question about your resume, such as projects I did. The interviewer was not very enthusiastic.

    Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PowerPlan in December 2014.

    Interview

    I am an engineer, and this was for an entry level consultant position. The job listing (all 4 pages of it) did not mention a minimum GPA requirement anywhere. I found out in a callback that there was a 3.5 minimum requirement. I was rejected for not meeting this requirement, which I can understand (although I wish this was mentioned on the job listing so I could have saved my time).

    The part that was unusual and frustrating is that after being rejected, I was asked to point the HR rep in the direction of any friends that would be qualified candidates. I first answered that my program was competitive and most friends were under the 3.5. This answer wasn't enough for the representative, and she was willing to make exceptions for those close to 3.5. I answered that my friends with such strong GPAs just stayed in the industry for which they went to school.

    Interview Questions

    • Being asked to help the company seek out candidates more qualified than myself was definitely both difficult and unexpected.   Answer Question
