Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in January 2017.

Interview

I applied on website and was contacted by a recruiting coordinating (not interviewer). They were a bit slow to get back (over a week to respond). I got a phone interview with a recruiting professional who was friendly. It was a 30 min interview that consisted of pretty generic questions -- behavioral, fit, and interest questions predominantly. The interviewer talked for much of it about the role and company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First round telephone interview was exactly how everyone else described it (i.e. research project, why your school, why advisory board, etc.). Second round was a 90 minute written exercise, case style, and a one hour behavioral/ case study. Make sure to send a follow up email for the written case exercise, because in my case the recruiter forgot to send me the prompt. Both written and verbal case studies were easier and more open ended than the cases seen in Case in Point. No math but certainly required structural thought. Both case study questions were framed as such: "what factors/information would you need when considering when..." Make sure to ask questions. That's where I think I failed. Nonetheless I thought I did quite well for never having done a case study interview before but I was informed the next day that they were no longer considering my candidacy. I was really disappointed.

    Interview Questions

    • Second round interview is half spent on behavioral questions/ one case study. Example of behavioral questions: ( I'm paraphrasing) "give me an example of when your research methodology led to erroneous results? What did you do about it?"   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Included screening with recruiter, hour-long Skype interview, and 3.5 hour in person case-style interview. Cases didn't focus on traditional math estimations, but focused mostly on logic cases. Some of them were more in a health care setting (also this company really likes "health care" as two words).

    The wait time between the different stages was pretty long.

    Still in the interview process, so I can't say what the compensation will look like or if I will accept the offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    First step: phone interview (resume, experience, why ABC)
    Second step: one hour Skype interview (resume, experience, why ABC, why this job, case study)
    Third step: invitation to DC office, 3 interviews (personal fit, case style) each one hour
    Did not get an offer; received a 2liner rejection email without intentional and targeted feedback. After putting a lot of work into this - very disappointing

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a phone interview the following week. The recruiter just asked several general and not tough questions. But then, no response for long time, like 2 weeks, even though I emailed her twice.

    And around 4 weeks after I took the phone interview, they sent me an email saying that they choose to move forward with another candidate…..
