    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    The Advisory Board Company process includes a lot of behavioral questions at the beginning, and then case interview questions towards the end. Would recommend a lot of practice with case interview questions. Also make sure to familiarize yourself with the company's mission

    Application

    I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to a different position but they wanted me to interview for their Sales Associate role as well based on my past work experiences, but then at the end I was told I wasn't fit for that role (which is why I didn't apply to it in the first place.) That was a little frustrating but overall the interview process was not too difficult and I really enjoyed the people I talked to. They ask a lot of behavioral type questions and I got the feeling they were looking for specific types of answers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company.

    Interview

    Recruiter recommended a different position than I applied for, and I scheduled a phone screen for the following week. I did a ton of preparation and was actually excited to work for a company for once. The call went extremely well. I talked about my community service, which was very important according to the recruiter and reviews here. It could not have gone any smoother. However a week later I got the standard rejection email. Unreal.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Intervied on campus with an awesome recruiter who I absolutely loved. Very basic interview questions. Invited to an onsite super day (but was far shorter than others I had been to). When we first arrived, had lunch with a current MA, then had a brief presentation on the company and service (which they care about highly). I recommend asking questions to show you're engaged. Next you will either go into your 1-1 with a manager and a 2-1 with more seasoned employees. Next you have a tour and see the awesome terrace! Overall a great day. Decided not to take the job because of the salary, although they offered me the top of the range listed here.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Richmond, VA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It was a short, 15 minute interview. She was very nice. Role is described as cold and warm calling mostly. You are there to generate revenue and have monthly sales goals. Said I would hear back next week. Appreciated how forthcoming she was about what the role entailed. It's not so glamorous cold calling, but the salary is decent for entry level.
