    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Strata Decision Technology (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I was contacted through a tech recruiter, who gave me some company info and then set me up with a phone interview with his manager.

    After I passed that round, I was forwarded on to the hiring manager for a phone interview. She really didn't ask many intense questions, it was more of a discussion to gauge personality and goals. She told me on the phone that she was going to bring me in for an in-person interview to meet her team, as she does not make hiring decisions without team input. All in all, we talked for about ten minutes.

    At the in person interview, I completed an aptitude test for SQL understanding and some reasoning questions. They weren't looking for right answers so much my thought process. After the test, I interviewed with the hiring manager to discuss personal goals and career goals as well as team fit. The conversation was super casual. Following our in person interview, I met with her team and talked about experiences and such. Following that, I moved on to another manager who heads another team where I discussed company culture and long term goals, and that was the end of the day (totaled about 3 hours)

    Next up was a phone interview with an SVP. Another casual conversation where I discussed company culture and where the company is headed, and how I might fit. We talked for about 10 minutes.

    A couple of days later, I spoke with the CEO, and had a conversation about company culture, goals, and how I think I would fit.

    I got my offer later that night.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Strata Decision Technology (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    There are a few steps to the interview process. First there is an initial HR phone screen where basic questions about your resume and background are asked. Then there is another phone interview with a manager mostly covering the same information. Then there is the onsite interview which consists of a very basic SQL (no syntax, just ideas) test and a reasoning test (basic math problems and estimation). Then there were 2, back to back, 2 on 1 interviews, each an hour long. First interview was with a vice president and a HR person. The second interview was with managers of the team you are in consideration for. All very friendly and casual interviews. Finally, there is another phone call with a vice president who asked the same questions as the first two phone interviews, and then a final 15 minute call with the CEO. Who also asked the same questions as all the other phone interviews. Have some good questions for the CEO. If you get to the CEO interview, then you basically already have the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Strata Decision Technology (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email a few days later from an administrative assistant to schedule a phone interview. I spoke with a managing director, who seemed a bit rushed and tried to get through the routine questions as quickly as possible. The managing director informed me that although I had originally applied for a consulting position, the company was currently seeking applicants for another help desk technician role. After the 15 minute awkward phone call, I was invited to an on-site interview where I was asked to complete a pre-interview exam and discuss my responses with both the managing director and lead help desk technician. The whole interview process took about 45 minutes long.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Strata Decision Technology (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The initial conversation was with the recruiter. She gave a brief overview of the company and typical career path. We discussed both implementation and optimization roles as well as my level of interest in each. She deferred detailed questions to the hiring manager. The second and third calls were with the hiring managers for each position. The next step was to meet face-to-face. They decided to go with another candidate at this point. I would have like the subsequent interviews to probe a little deeper with some open ended questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Strata Decision Technology (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty pleasant. Everyone was very friendly and was more interested in who you were rather than just your experience and scores. Overall process involved: phone interview with someone at your position, phone interview with the head of HR, phone interview with CEO, and onsite interview with potential manager, onsite joint interview with two people at your position, onsite written survey skills assessment. I was very impressed that the CEO took the time out of his day to contact a potential entry level consultant.
