    Interview

    I submitted my resume through my university career page and was told to talk to company representatives at the career fair. After the career fair, I was sent an application form via email. I then had two on-campus interviews. I received an email inviting me to an office visit. I had a dinner the night before, an interview with a manager, an interview with a partner, and finally a lunch with an analyst.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sendero (Dallas, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The process begins with an informal meet and greet such as at a pastry shop. You'll meet with a member of the team of your rank or level of experience and it's more of an open discussion. This seems to be more to tell if you're a fit for the "culture" though I would imagine that if you do a poor job talking to your experience (i.e. elevator speech) that too could disqualify.

    Should mutual interest be established at this session, you'll then be brought in for in person interviews with a handful of Senior Managers and eventually a member of the executive team. This can happen over the course of 1 interview (multiple hours) or be broken into 2 2 hour interviews often with a dinner / lunch on the end of the last interview.

    If you're telling the truth and have the experience you claim you do on your resume or have talked about previously with Sendero, you will find the in office interview(s) manageable. I'm not going to call this easy though, I was quite well prepared and still found myself having to take a pause on a couple of occasions before responding to questions asked by a couple of interviewers in particular.

    That said, even as you're grilled (yes, there is one interviewer who pushes to the point he has a reputation for it) you can tell the interviewer wants you to succeed. Don't let the pressure applied throw you off track in your responses and you'll see

    Lastly, I can't stress enough how important each and every interaction is. Do not take your initial informal interview lightly and do not take the dinner / lunch lightly should you be fortunate enough to make it that far. On the surface these seem like nice to haves but, they too matter.

    Interview Questions

    • They will ask some questions about your experience but, really seem most interested in how you solve problems. I'm not giving away the farm here as I want the process to remain effective but, the behavioral aspect of this will outweigh the in-depth technical stuff that really should be more table stakes in a consulting interview anyways.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sendero (Dallas, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was a series of four interview. Two on-campus and Two at the job site. When you went to Dallas, you met for dinner the first night and then the second morning you had an interview, lunch and then one more interview. Overall it wasn't too taxing but it really did make you think and challenge you. It can be a bit overwhelming though, they ask you typical consulting questions, but they also focus a lot on personal questions. Fitting the culture there is very important to the company.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Sendero.

    Interview

    The interview process was a learning experience and a little intimidating at first, but when I got to know the people some through introductions I was at ease. They were so kind and the questions were thought provokers.
