    Consulting Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Slalom (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2018.

    Interview

    My experience started off with a few email exchanges with the Talent Recruiters, quickly moved to a phone call and when that went well, I was invited to come in and meet the team for a morning of interviews. The people at Slalom were great and my meetings really felt more like conversations than interviews. The process was smooth and straight forward. I received an offer about a week after my onsite interviews. The only reason the process took 3 months was that I was a remote candidate and had to travel to the interviews.

    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Slalom (Seattle, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    3 interviews in total.... finished 2nd interview last week and waiting on reply. 1st interview was a culture fit interview and asked you to talk about your experience. 2nd interview was a tech interview through the phone

    I was surprised by the questions tbh. All the reviews on this site pretty much said OOP and database questions but my interview focused on front end webtech. I was kind of caught of guard as I had been prepping things on Database optimizaton, OOP, RestAPI's etc and really didn't expect to be asked in such detail about things such as webpack, Angular etc. The interview focused heavily on these which was a shame cause although I've used them and know them I hadn't any specific answers ready for them. I have no down as offer because I haven't heard back yet.

    All in all the interview wasn't that hard but be prepared because they will grill you on all aspects. I'm surprised by some of the questions say they were asked on this. I would have loved to be asked something like FizzBuzz!! :)

    Interview Questions

    • 1. What is an interface

      2. What's your favorite part of a language you have used?

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Slalom (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    Contacted by the company recruiter. Did a bit research on glassdoor, overwhelmingly positive feedback. scheduled for four rounds of face to face interview. up till the last round of phone interview, i had very pleasant experiences with this company. The last round was technical and the interviewer was very picky about some 2 minutes google able questions, then was asked to do a off line coding project. never heard of this before. submitted the next day, and never heard back from them, very disappointing and total waste of time. Good luck with people who wants to get into this consulting firm.

    Leadership Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Slalom.

    Interview

    At two separate times , I was reached out by two separate recruiters via LinkedIn . After scheduling a meeting both of them never called after scheduling time slots . Both of these recruiters were completely indifferent and inconsiderate of other people's priorities and time schedule. After following twice I gave up wondering if I was unlucky to interact with the bad apples or is it the company culture.

    Also to add these events were at different times , with two different recruiters from two different cities .

    In my career of 10 + years I have never came across such poor practices. Disciplinary actions should be taken against such terrible recruiters

    Leadership Role Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Slalom (Washington, DC) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Slalom's interview process was a thorough and a refreshing experience. Over a 6-week period, I met with several folks including consultants at various levels, senior leaders as well as the GM of the DC office. The interview process was well balanced one to find a candidate that was a right fit for the company and as well for the job.

    Interviews were mostly conversational in nature but the focus was clearly to ensure you have the technical acumen, SME in the appropriate field, have performed similar work in the past with successful results, are entrepreneurial and are the right fit for their culture. Slalom is serious about their 'people-first' culture and my experience was no different. I found the people to be smart, happy where they are and to enjoy what they do (which was very important to me).

    In summary, it was a wonderful experience and am looking forward to joining the Slalom family.
