    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.

    The interview process was overall normal. I first met the other analyst on the team along with the team lead. Received technical question such as experience with SQL Server ( the in-house database system), comfort level with SQL, knowledge on Excel formulas/macros, etc. Met with program manager from separate team to discuss interest level beyond data analysis as well. Company encourages career diversity.

    Consultant Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied for a Research Analyst position and had an HR screening interview and then an interview with the hiring manager. I was asked to submit a writing sample at that time. I was then contacted by HR and told that I would be considered for the Consultant position instead. I interviewed with another hiring manager via phone for that position. I then received feedback that I would be interviewing for a different Consultant position in another part of the firm and it would be via Skype. The hiring manager for this position was extremely inpatient and I felt like the manager did not consider me from the beginning of the interview. At the same time, I was contacted by another recruiter from their Advisory practice about a different consulting opportunity and set up a time to talk to this recruiter. Ten minutes after the recruiter was supposed to call, I received an email from the recruiter asking to reschedule. I emailed my availability back and then never heard from the recruiter again. However, for the original consulting position in the other department I received a template email stating that I was "removed from consideration for all positions" without any additional information. I was really disappointed in the process given that they had interviewed 5 times, completed a writing sample and a case study and interviewed with 3 different departments over a period of multiple months. The whole recruiting process is a mess at The Advisory Board Company.
