Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sapient Global Markets (Boston, MA).

Interview

I went thru on campus recruiting which consisted of one behavioral interview/ resume walk thru.

Super Saturday in Boston (40 applicants on this day) consisted of 1 45 minute case study followed by a 45 minute review, 1 behavioral interview, 1 group case interview followed by a presentation to all of the staff in the building and all of the other applicants.

Interview Questions

  • the group case interview asked the question- what would you invent to most benefit human kind in the 21 century. After only 15 mins of discussion with your group you were to give a 5 minute presentation where everybody presented.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sapient Global Markets (New York, NY) in September 2012.

    Interview

    They have 2 rounds of interviews, 1st round was conducted on campus. Very simple, all behavioral questions, no case interview. Then invited to a 2nd round interview.

    By this point I had a lot of other interviews set up and didn't really prep specifically for theirs and did not have any experience with case interviews. They put you in a room by yourself with a packet of data and tell you that you have 45 minutes to put together a presentation, then the interviewer comes in after 30 minutes and tells you that you need to get started with your presentation and puts you on the spot.

    Case wasn't very complicated, efficiency case, but I missed a labor saving technology aspect that the interviewer was really harping on.

    After the individual case, you have another behavioral interview followed by a group case where all of the candidates have to come up with answers to a case together.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sapient Global Markets (Boston, MA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Phone screen with recruiter, phone screen with hiring manager, full day in-person interview with two behavioral sessions, a case study, and a group exercise (lunch included). Of all in-person sessions, the group exercise was toughest due to the nature of working with others who are all vying for the same position. Lunch session allowed for interviewees to interact with junior employees and receive more candid information about starting at SGM.
