    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Protiviti (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The first round was comprised of two thirty minutes interviews, one behavioral, one case. It wasn't a classic case, but a process case. I was presented with a process in an imaginary company that has several risk and operations problems. From there, the interviewer helped me along with hints and asked questions, basically walking through the process.

    The behavioral portion was very straightforward. I'd recommend having more than two questions prepared for the interviewer because the amount of time spent answering questions and asking questions was about 50:50.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Protiviti (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    They brought us in for an office visit during which I had a case interview and a behavioral interview. We spent the morning learning about the company and their specific values. Later in the afternoon we participated in a donation sorting. The interview was very relaxed and more of a get to know you better kind of interview. The case interview was a bit difficult but it was my first and they understood.

    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 college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Protiviti (Washington, DC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Two 30-minute interviews. First was a case study which was easy and the interviewer helps you through it. Second was a behavioral interview. Interviewer was not interested at all. Was conducting work during a 30-minute interview. Case study was very easy but the behavioral part was painful.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Protiviti (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The first round was a case study that was fairly straight forward and solvable by people of any background (IT, Accounting, Finance, Management, Economics). The case was just about proving a company's process. It was a 45 minute interview surrounding the case, and 45 minutes of behavioral questions. This was on campus.

    Second round was 2 behavioral interviews that were 30 minutes each, an office tour, and a group exercise.
