    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Slalom (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Had a phone screening with a National recruiter, who reached out to me via LinkedIn. After our conversation, they put me in contact with a recruiter from the Slalom SoCal office. After that had a couple in person interviews, as well as a few phone interviews. Met with the MD for custom development/tech after those interviews, and had an offer extended. All in all, it was a pretty great experience.

    Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Slalom (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied as a consultant in the Information Management & Analytics practice in late November 2017. The recruiter reached out in December and set up a phone screen. Although there were some initial scheduling mishaps, we were finally able to connect, and the 30-minute call turned into an hour conversation about my interests and long-term career goals. I really connected with the recruiter and after hearing more about Slalom, I was even more interested in the position.

    A week later, the recruiter notified me that I would not be moving forward in the process. They needed someone with consulting experience.

    Fast forward to January 2018. I was thinking about accepting an offer from another firm when the same Slalom recruiter reached out to me out of the blue and asked if I would be interested in an Analyst role. Although other offices have previously hired analysts, the Los Angeles office had never hired analysts before.

    Although I thought that the analyst position would be more of a lateral move, I was really interested in Slalom. A week later I had a technical screen with a Solution Architect. This interview focused on my technical background, namely Tableau. After the technical screen, I was asked to complete a Tableau dashboard in 48 hours. After that was completed, I was invited to an in-person interview at the office.
    I interviewed with the Consulting Manager (my future People Manager) and the Practice Area Director. I really liked all four of the people I spoke to and knew that Slalom would be a great fit for me. Within a week, I had received and accepted the offer.

    TLDR: Applied as a consultant. Ended up being hired as an analyst. Although a lengthy process, everything was very organized and I loved both the people and the company.

    Management Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Slalom (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I sent in my resume through the website and got in touch immediatley with recruiters and even some of the leadership team down in Los Angeles. The interviews consisted of meeting with someone to see if there was a good cultural fit and another to review skills. Culture is obviously very important at this company, and the people were all very friendly.

    Interview Questions

    • What are some of the projects you have had in the past, and what skills have you learned from them?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was given a very fair offer after volunteering an offer I received from one of the Big Four. They have a very unique compensation model which was one of the reasons I ended up working here.

    Management Consultant Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Slalom (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Extremely long interview process. I had interviews with 6 separate folks in the Los Angeles office ranging from recruiting staff to Managing Directors and after all the time invested by Slalom and myself, the company decided not to hire me! My understanding of why they decided not to progress with me was that my experience was only on large client engagements.

    Management Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Slalom (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very informal, but in a really comforting way. Slalom seeks out qualified candidates that can immediately jump into work and support the clients, so significant time is invested up front by recruiters to make sure you are the right match before interviewing begins. Once you begin talking to recruiters, it is very informal and casual, which is nice for those that want to get a strong impression of the type of people they will be working with, supporting, and supporting them in their career. Attitudes are very positive, trusting, and open about the work environment you are considering, and you are made to feel a part of the team very early on. Although it may be unclear where you stand in the process, recruiters are very open and connecting with you often along the way to keep you informed. In all, initial contact to offer letter is approximately 4-6 weeks. This includes a couple phone screenings by HR, 2-3 phone interviews with leaders in that office, and an office visit to meet people and discuss real-world scenarios to see how you fit in.

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Slalom (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    The hiring process is a false positive experience. It took over 8 weeks to schedule out multiple interviews. The experience felt positive but it truly keeps you on the edge. Interview call, 1:1, and a hand full of interviews over a week or three periods per each interviewee. They all spoke about their company structure and review it with the potential candidate. .
