    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting (Phoenix, AZ) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview began with an initial phone screening covering my overall skills and background that lasted about 30 mintues.

    This was followed by a challenging in-person technical interview. The technical interview lasted about 90 minutes and consisted of verbal questions and answers about the technology being used. There were no whiteboarding or programming portions to the interview.

    The final step of the interview was conducted by phone and lasted approximately 30 minutes. It provided me with more information about the company and the role as well.

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Applied on their website. About a month later I got an email from a recruiter, who set up a phone screen. Pretty simple conversation, just going over my resume and experience. Next interview I went in and talked to their lead recruiter. Very laid back conversation, again going over my experience and what I was looking for. They also talked about Slalom and their values.

    Last round was three interviews in a row with the team I would be working with. These were conversational, going over my experience and how that would translate to the work I would do at Slalom. A few curveball questions here and there, but nothing too crazy.

    After the interview, the recruiter told me they would have a decision in about a week. It would take them over a month to get back to me, with me emailing them in the interim but getting no response. By the time I heard back, I knew I didn't get the job, but would've at least liked to get a more timely response. They also didn't offer any constructive feedback when I asked for it. So overall, the interviews themselves were fine, but the aftermath was pretty off putting.

    Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    The process itself is quite easy (introduction call, phone interview, panel interview). There are not any tricky questions, and everyone was friendly. The frustrating aspect of the process was the recruiter communications and logistics. It was typical for 10-15 business day lags in responses. The expectation would be set for immediate feedback, and it would require constant follow-up to get an answer by e-mail. This hurt my perception of the company's professionalism. A major improvement would be to shorten response times or to set realistic expectations for the communications.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process was quite seamless. The hiring team was very informative and accommodating, and each interviewer provided a different perspective and outlook on the role. It was an informal environment which allowed me to provide information on my experience but also gave me the time to learn a lot about the company and culture.

    Interview

    I applied for the Data Visualization and Analytics Consultant position in Minneapolis, MN through Slalom's website. I received an email from the recruiter saying that there aren't any "pressing needs". Why would they post a job opening if there is no need for a BI Consultant?
