    Staff - Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Public Consulting Group (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    For a basic staff position, 7 people interviewed me. It felt like I was being interrogated. That should have been a good sign this would stink. They made it sound like it is the best company in the world, not telling the truth about growth opportunities and low pay/low bonuses.

    typical fit/behavior questions at the start, but starting asking about your healthcare knowledge or experience. The lady was nice and very friendly. But it seems like they are only hiring people that are experienced or familiar with the healthcare sector.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Public Consulting Group (Boston, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Started off with a phone interview - nothing out of the ordinary, just some behavioral questions. Followed up with a in-person 30min interview at the Boston office - also very typical interview questions. It's been 3 weeks and HR still hasn't followed up with another interview or even responded to emails or phone calls. Has anyone else who applied for this position heard back yet?

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Public Consulting Group (Boston, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    They did a phone screen and then an in-person interview. The in person was straight forward, some technical questions and in depth about the industry and structure there at PCG. Nothing out of the ordinary. I met with about 5 people total.

    They use HireRight to do background checks. This can take time. My process took two weeks.

    The folks there seems to be on the level and know what they are doing.
