    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, had a phone interview, then invited to an interview in the DC office, where I had one one-on-one interview and one two-on-one interview.

    I applied online in early March 2016, my phone interview was at the end of April, and in person interview was about two weeks after my phone interview in May.

    The phone interview is honestly a bit disappointing. The recruiter is just reading through a sheet of questions and basically sticking to a script. She was really hard to connect with. The questions were very basic and easy to answer though. Just have to be confident in your answers. About a week later, I got a call letting me know I made it to the next round.

    The in-person interview at the DC office was a breeze and very easy! It started off with an informal breakfast with a current marketing associate. I could ask questions about the interview, learn more about the company, and just relax before the formal interview. This breakfast was not an official part of the interview process.

    The interviews in person were fairly simple. I was asked to run through my resume, talk about the role and the company, and some behavioral type questions (all questions are posted here on Glassdoor). Got an email and a call about a week later saying i got the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in January 2016.

    Interview

    They ask you very basic questions. It's not a great way of deciding who is a fit for the role. It's just your average are you organized, are you motivated kind of scenario. They'll ask you for three accomplishments that you are proud of and how you achieved them. Any generic college experience would fit here if you say it with gusto.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: What are three accomplishments you are proud of?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation in the contract. They tell you the pay and then they say that it's non negotiable. Also, they save you will see a raise at six months in which is a lie--you don't see it until 10 months and they do not backpay you. Right after they mention the pay they start with the trips/raise speech which you should totally disregard. Bottom line, if you have bills to pay and didn't go to college to have to work two jobs, keep looking.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Sent off an application and was selected for an on-campus first round interview. Consisted of 30 minutes of behavioral questions, very easy. Then had super day at the main office, which lasted 3 hours and really only consisted of 2 easy interviews. Was extremely impressed by company culture and benefits package. Tons of paid time off, plus extremely generous policy with regard to community service. And they have a gym in the office.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on LinkedIn. Was contacted the next day to set up a phone interview. The first time the recruiter never called and I had to email someone twice to get a response. When she finally called she asked basic questions that weren't difficult to answer, but overall seemed uninterested in what I had to say. Sounded like she was reading from a script the entire time. I thought I did well but then two weeks later I received an email saying I did not get an offer.

    Interview

    A phone interview followed by 2 in person interviews and an office tour/breakfast with a current associate. The in person interviews are very fast paced so you have to think quickly on your feet. Make sure you know exactly what the Marketing Associates do and exactly what The Advisory Board does because they will ask in your interviews.

    Interview

    Two weeks, applied online and then had two phone screenings. After the phone interview was an in person interview with several members of the department. The interview was easy, low stress. It seemed like they just wanted to confirm you're a normal person rather than determining special skills and qualifications
