Senior Consultant Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting in March 2016.

Interview

Initial Chat with HR to discuss my background, company's needs and where I could play a part on the team. Regrettably I do not think Slalom has done a very good job with Bay area Salary comparisons compared to other tech companies. They are approximately 20-25% less with no stock benefits and relatively average vacation policies. It does sound like a very nice work environment, however given living costs in the area I highly recommend Slalom revise its salary bands or perhaps try recruiting from outside of San Francisco

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting.

    Interview

    Very odd phone screening from recruiter; felt like she was fishing for information about my current employer. She did not want to ask much about my experience. Per the recruiter, they have had no openings in the Marketing/Sales practice group, or the Finance practice group. So why is she calling me?

    Per the recruiter, the company requires that employees work on site in downtown Seattle; there seemed to be no flexibility or trust for telecommuting, which seems odd in 2016. The company does not offer sandbox for learning and practicing technologies that clients want to implement, nor does it sponsor regular educational gatherings to share knowledge. It may have been that this recruiter simply didn't know.

    First round interview consisted of a 2 on 1 behavioral and a 2 on 1 behavioral plus case interview. The interviewers was nice and asked questions in a tag-team format. The behavioral questions were typical STAR story format and the case was not too bad.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Participated in several rounds of phone interviews. The Slalom representative was friendly but her work ethic was terrible. She would set appointments to connect and then just fail to show up. She seemed distracted and generally unprofessional. After finally talking several times, she expressed a desire for me to come into the office for in-person interviews. I gave her my availability and never heard back. I would never work here based on this interaction with Slalom. It shows me that they don't really respect other peoples time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting (San Francisco, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Everyone I met with was extremely smart, prepared, engaging and friendly. Talent Acquisition contacted me before each meeting to tell me what to expect in the interview and followed up to hear my thoughts about each meeting. I was also greeted at each visit, making me feel like I was important to the company. I concluded that it would be a great company to work for, with lots of collaboration and growth opportunities, However, I had at least six in-person interviews over multiple months, plus numerous calls with HR, before I was engaged in a clear conversation about compensation.There was a significant disconnect between my needs/industry norms and what the company offered, leaving me feeling like we had invested a lot of time unnecessarily.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Slalom Consulting (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me via LinkedIn and tried to sell me on the local model,right from the beginning i had a feeling that something wasnt right. They conceal the fact that you only get 2 weeks of vacation and they are definitely a staff aug firm.
    I had a phone screen and they scheduled a 2 hr interview once every week for 5 weeks , all along the way they told me i was a great fit and gave a positive feedback and then after the final round they did not get back to me for 3 weeks and finally they told me they cant hire me because visa transfer takes 2 weeks and they cant wait that long . What amused me was the fact that visa transfer takes 2 weeks but it took them 3 weeks to convey this decision to me.

    But this is a general advice to everybody, if a company is drawing out the interview process, then dont waste your time. Just move on and direct your job search to a more feasible place
