    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Tefen (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First I was asked to take a 25 question GMAT style assessment administered online, which was to be returned via email within one hour. Passed the exam and was scheduled for an in-person interview. In person I interviewed with three different individuals (project managers and a director). During the in-person interview I was asked a series of questions aiming to assess my problem solving style, as well as personality/behavioral questions. The usual questions were also asked - walk me through your resume, why consulting, why are you a good fit for Tefen, etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tefen (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    First round was a quick GMAT-type assessment over e-mail. Next, was brought in for an interview session that lasted about 3 hours. Had 1 hour with Project Managers, 1 hour with the Director and 1 hour with the COO from Israel. There was another candidate there at the same time, and we traded rooms/people to interview and left together, which was a little awkward.

    Interviews with both the Project Managers and Director were similar and pretty straightforward: about yourself, behavorial, case and Q&A. The Project Managers were more rigorous with their questions, but very detailed and reasonable. The Director was very congenial and seems like an awesome person. The COO was mainly high level and informational. Everyone I spoke with was great and seemed like very nice and smart people, high energy and enthusiastic.

    My impression leaving was that it seemed like a pretty great place to work with motivated and smart colleagues and I would have been excited to join. I was fortunate enough to receive an offer, but had insurmountable concerns over whether Tefen was a revolving door for consultants and the salary was much lower than expected for the role and responsibilities.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Tefen (New York, NY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Fairly normal interviewing process for consultants consisting of a test and a few interviews. Be prepared for a variety of case studies and to try and think outside of the box.

    The only issue I had, which is no real big deal, is that fact that you may interview with multiple people with heavy accents. This just made communication a bit difficult.
