    Interview

    Poor experience in that a talent analyst asked for my availability for an interview; I provided the requested info and then I never heard anything else. Why reach out and then not even bother to schedule the interview?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting.

    Interview

    I was encouraged by one of the Slalom employees to contact Slalom's local (San Francisco) recruiter. Exchange few email with him and setup initial phone screen interview.
    Had a very positive, friendly talk with the guy, he was genuinely interested and expressed his intention to hook me up with a director of a local team practice.
    However after the call there was nothing but silence... I have politely followed up, week after the call and again week after that, but no answer whatsoever.
    I do understand, if company is not interested or change its mind, but one of the basic role of the recruiter is to communicate. Not to answer basic email followups after the line of communication is establish, even with a simple "Thank you, not interested", is highly unprofessional and amateurish and certainly does not reflect positively on company reputation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting.

    Interview

    HR flaked on my screening call without notice. When they called the next week they were just reading off a script and not really listening to what I was saying. I talked about my consulting experience and 5 minutes later they asked if I had any consulting experience. The finale was when they said the position was not actually open and they were just collecting resumes at the moment.

    Not impressed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting.

    Interview

    I contacted a recruiter online with a message expressing my interest. She replied with a crisp- Sorry, we do not offer visa sponsorship.

    Funny thing is - I did not mention needing a visa sponsorship and did not indicate the same in my LinkedIn profile or on my resume. She just took one look at my profile: she saw a non-western name and profile pic and made an assumption that I would obviously need visa sponsorship. I brought this issue up with another manager on LinkedIn- she apparently had a talk with the recruiter and responded to me with this- The recruiter mistook me for an international application because my university has an international sounding name. I went to the University of Texas.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting.

    Interview

    The process took around four weeks. The recruiter was very prompt in scheduling the interviews and communicating next steps.

    As much as Slalom boasts about its people culture, that was not reflected in the way they treated me and my candidacy. Before I started the interview process, I discussed my current salary with the recruiter and they were on board to move ahead. After several rounds of interview and onsite, I was hopeful of an offer considering the positive messages I received from the interviewers.

    However, I was taken aback when the recruiter called to inform me that they were not moving forward. As much as I respect their process and decision, what upset me the most is the lack of transparency. The recruiter said the team loved me but they cannot move forward as they cannot match my pay. I was told that Slalom's offer will be significantly lower than what I am making today. However, they refused to state the number. I found this extremely unprofessional. If my salary bracket was high, why move forward with the interview process and waste my time? When I probed further, they gave me all sorts of lame excuses about my experiences which were (1) Absolutely false and (2) Was disrespectful to my current job and role

    I am extremely unhappy with my experience and I will discourage my friends and colleagues from considering this place as a potential career opportunity.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Intense rounds but the entire process only took a couple weeks end to end including hearing back with an offer. I countered the offer and was pleasantly surprised to hear a much better offer. Slalom was very adamant that I find the company and culture a good fit.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Multiple phone screens and office interviews (spoke with 5 people overall). An extensive in-person interview led me to believe that positions were open in the space I was looking for, but hearing back form the recruiter, they stated a lack of alignment between skill set and needs.

    Interview was easy, they were pleasant and professional but there was a clear disconnect between how things went and the outcome - unless of course they did not tell me the truth about the actual reasons for not moving forward:)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting (Portland, OR) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process involved three behavioral interviews and one panel case study interview. Everyone was very nice and professional, and I actually found the process fun...everyone I met was so interesting! I received an offer a couple of days after the case study and was asked to start the following week.

    • This was my first case study interview, so I was a bit nervous, but I felt the team was encouraging. I would definitely recommend preparing for the case study ahead of time...there are numerous resources online.   Answer Question
