    Human Resources Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at RGP (New York, NY).

    Interview

    They are in HR Consulting, but they do not know what they are doing. They do not know HR components and how to interpret data. A total waste of time.

    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at RGP (New York, NY).

    Interview

    RGP interview is easy. More of a sales pitch to the applicant going over the structure of the company, the benefits package, and how the client engagements work.
    Client interviews are more difficult. You are presented to potential clients and meet the team management. They will ask very specific and technical questions to determine if you will be a good fit. These interviews can be intimidating so do your homework. Took me three times before a client decided to bring me on for an engagement.

    Interview Questions

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at RGP (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First there was a couple of email exchanges, followed by a phone conversation with one of the in-house recruiting people. Then we arranged a face-to-face with that in-house recruiting person and also one of their salespeople (they don't call them that, but I can't think of the term right now). They asked me a bunch of questions about what I've done and who I've worked with. They're smart people, but I got the feeling they were a little out of their element in true consulting as opposed to skilled accounting temp workers and backfills. I fall outside of pure accounting work., so they arranged to have me talk with the practice leader in my specialty to really gauge how busy they'd be able to keep me. He never called. I followed up. They said he'd call. He never called. I followed up again. They double promised he'd call. He never called. I gave up. I didn't get "rejected" per se; they say they're still looking for a project to put me on, but it was on the whole a pretty disappointing experience. They said they'd love to have me, but yet internally it seems like they have a lot of work to do to get someone through the process when it comes to the management consulting side of their business. Probably much different in the accounting sector.

    Interview Questions

    • What are some of my domain expertise experiences? Am I okay traveling? How busy do I expect to be? How much per hour do I need to make?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't decline per se, they just never moved and said, "Here's a project go do it". Strange.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at RGP (Denver, CO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward, over the phone interview; questions on my background, what I want to do and why I left my last firm. The interviewer gave a good overview and pitch or RGP, which I found to be rather useful. I've set up an in-face interview for the following week, and aim excited about the opportunity.

    Supply Chain Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at RGP (Atlanta, GA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Had a round of phone interview with some pretty basic questions and about myself along with information on RGP operating model.
    In the on-site 1:1 - it was more explaining and giving a run down on my career, positions held and the achievements made. It was quite good that I could steer the interview process and highlight my major wins.

    Phone interview, in person interview and second in person interview. Was contacted by recruiter (unsolicited my me) met with said recruiter , then to hiring manager who said I was not qualified so dismissed me and offered me a consulting instead (part-time). Very unprofessional to come in for an interview for one position and to completely bait and switch. Needless to say I turned it down.

    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at RGP (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The people I met with at RGP were very friendly. The interview was fairly informal and the questions asked were relevant to my work history and experience. The interview was about one hour long, just the right length to disseminate the necessary information, but not too long so as to make the interview tedious.
