    Senior Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sia Partners (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    For my specific candidacy, the Partner directly reached out to me about my background and the potential need for my skills at their client.

    The interview process was 'fast-tracked' due to the need at a client and included a phone screen, and in-person conversation with the Partner. I found out within two weeks that I was moving forward and accepted the offer.

    Negotiation

    The negotiation was straight-forward. I was in a situation where the company I was working for at the time was going through some re-structuring and Sia Partners provided me with the 'bridge' or the best offer at that time.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sia Partners in February 2016.

    Interview

    I first had a phone screening with the employee in charge of recruiting; questions included walk me through your resume, why consulting, etc.

    Next, I had a phone call with a consultant and a senior manager, and had the opportunity to ask them more questions about working at Sia Partners. No cases, pretty straightforward questions.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sia Partners (New York, NY) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Started with a brief phone screen with behavioral questions. Not the most organized, recruiter forgot who I was.

    Preceded onward to an analytical test. It was analyzing the hypothetical quarterly earnings of a company and answering corresponding questions. Upon completing and emailing back the analytical test, I was told I would hear back within two days. Even though I followed up twice over two weeks, Sia Partners completely dropped me and the interviewing process apparently ended there.

    Careful investing a lot of time prepping for an interview here, they won't even reciprocate a second.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sia Partners.

    Interview

    Smooth Process

    3 interviews (Junior consultant, Manager, Associate Partner)
    1 short case study during second interview

    Junior consultant and Manager were friendly and professional, strong communication and accessible, interesting interviews.
     Associate Partner seemed like he was doing something else, cut the interview short and was unprofessional in his communications (Confirming the interview 5minutes before the suggested time...)

    Business Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brussels (Belgium)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sia Partners (Brussels (Belgium)).

    Interview

    a 4 steps interview process, with a first interview with HR followed by interviews with practice leaders and the head of the Benelux office.

    The HR interview introduced the company, focused on my career, motivations and expectations and lasted one hour.

    The other interviews were more concrete, with detailed questions about my experiences (how did you do this, how do you react in situation X,...) and lasted almost 2 hours each. The process was flexible; I wanted to meet one extra person before deciding and they immediately agreed.

    All interviewers were very friendly and professional. Unlike some competitors, they were able to provide very accurate descriptions of the kind of work I would be doing and they were very transparent about the advantages and disadvantages of the job + expectations of the firm.

    Overall, a positive experience.
