    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Protiviti (New York, NY).

    Interview

    A super day where you will interview with two separate individuals and conduct group activities. They day is filled with guest speakers and first and second year employees who are in the position you are applying for. The interview process was pretty low key they just wanted to talk and find out what kind of person you are. Didn't really ask an intense or hard questions.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Protiviti (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Had a phone screening followed the next week by an office visit consisting of a behavioral interview, a case study, and a brief office tour with time to answer any questions. The behavioral interviewer was a bit stiff and awkward (which could have been due to it being so early in the morning), but the other interviewers were great to talk with and seemed like they would make good co-workers.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Protiviti (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiter was very nice and prompt at calling at the scheduled interview time, was very transparent about the role and responsibilities. This company seems like a great place to grow and provide career opportunities and advancement. We did not talk about pay but it was to be based on experience in the role and limited opportunity for bonus.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Protiviti (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    30 minute case study, 30 minute behavioral questions. One hour of sitting around doing nothing. One hour at lunch. The whole thing was so rushed and wasn't the best way to showcase an individual's skills.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Protiviti (San Francisco, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied on school website and got invited to the first round interview on campus. Two interviews - one behavioral and one case interview. The interviewers (managers) were both very nice. Got into second round, but the in-office visit experience was not that pleasant. The HR was not very responsive in following up and confirming the interview dates. They have some panel discussions, then 2 interviews with HR/Manager followed by lunch with Associates. The HR lady who did the interview seemed not interested at all. I think they already made their decision and had their preferences before you went. People in the company are all very nice, but this office relies too much on their HR team. Though HR is very very important for a 13 year old firm....imagine they have HR interview their potential consultants, only asking about Accounting class/business club questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Protiviti (Charlotte, NC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    On campus interview with behavioral and case parts. They gave an excerpt from the case a couple days before to allow me to prepare which was realistic and helpful. Both interviews were straightforward. I was then invited to interview in the office. Another behavioral interview along with a collaborative presentation. Both interviews were straightforward again.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Protiviti in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through University after Career Fair. First round interview was behavioral and second was case study. If you make it past that its the office visit. The employees were very nice. They email you part of the case study the night before your interview. You prepare as much as you can and then you are given the full situation when you get there. You have to answer a series of questions combining the two.
