    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Prophet Brand Strategy (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Two back-to-back 30-minute interviews, one behavioral/fit/resume walk-through, one powerpoint presentation (pick a strong brand and explain why and how it can improve). In the latter, I gave my presentation and together we talked about other ways the brand could expand and worked through some pain points of the consumer experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Prophet Brand Strategy (Berkeley, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    There are 2 back-to-back interviews. One with mostly case questions, the other you have to present slides on a good or bad brand that you've prepared beforehand. I might be wrong, but it felt like they took a good cop-bad cop approach. First interviewer was very open and casual, eager to hear your thoughts on the brand you're presenting. Second interviewer was much more distant, playing with her jacket and checking her watch constantly.

    Interview Questions

    • A number of different scenarios and they ask you about how you'd approach the situation, e.g. Disneyland is thinking of expanding to open a theme park for adults. Safeway is thinking of producing a line of premium store-brand products.   Answer Question

It was a back to back interview that was really laid back. the first interviewer was a woman and she gave me the mini business cases. the second interview was me presentating my powerpoint. after the powerpoint, he asked me a whole bunch of questions trying to find a flaw in my argument. you just have to be able to counter everything.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Prophet Brand Strategy (Norfolk, VA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    2 back to back interviews. Both extremely nice. Had to give a presentation on my favorite/ least favorite brand. The interview will definitely get more in depth... asking tough questions. Then the second interview is case based relating to branding problems. They are testing you on how creative and innovate you can be with your solutions. They are looking for out of the box thinkers and people with a high level of people skills. My advice for you would be to put yourself in the situation and really be the consumer. That really helped me with my interview. They will also allocate a significant amount of time for you to ask company specific questions so I would come prepared.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Prophet Brand Strategy (Atlanta, GA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    On campus interview consisted of several brief branding scenarios, preceded by resume questions and some typical behavioral questions. The second component on campus was essentially pitching a brand, describing it's strengths and weaknesses. On-site interview was a brand discussion with a partner, a behavioral interview with a senior consultant, and a branding case with an EM. I was left for about 45min to answer questions about a specific brand.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Prophet Brand Strategy (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone call with a very friendly and helpful manager from HR, and was then brought in for series of in-person interviews. One was a prepared brand presentation on either a strong or weak brand, one was an on-the-spot case study, and another a behavioral interview basically asking "why Prophet?" and "why branding?". Finally I met with a partner who had me run through another case, followed by a discussion about consulting, branding, and Prophet in general. It was a challenging, yet very enjoyable process.
