    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Triage Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was involved in their off-campus recruitment. First stages consisted of an initial phone screen that was more conversation-like and gauging interest in healthcare and Triage (also to make sure you're not some robot), and then two Skype interviews with Managers at the firm. After that, I was invited to attend a final round superday in their SF office that involved 3 interviews with Managers/Principals, a case study, and casual interactions with other Associates/Senior Associates over breakfast and lunch. As many of the previous reviews state, the case study isn't something you can prepare for; they teach you everything you need to know and from there it's just about using critical thinking and basic algebra skills. Everybody was helpful and friendly throughout the whole process and definitely helps to make the recruiting experience enjoyable and easy-going. They really mean it when they want you to be yourself and have a good time while you're with them--smile!

    Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Triage Consulting Group (Berkeley, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed through my school and was chosen for a first round interview where I met up with a Principle from the company. It was mostly a behavioral interview where she asked a bit of my interests and background and why I chose the university I attend and major. It was 30 minutes long and almost like a causal conversation. Formal attire is preferable and they appreciate if you know some background on the company and position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Triage Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I met some employees/recruiters at the career fair as well as at an info session. Some of the people there mentioned that they are looking for social and analytical skills, so if you can convey that in your cover letter, that would be helpful. I applied through my university job board and got a first round in person interview at the career fair. It was 30 minutes with one of the senior associates. A week later I was asked to come back for a final round interview in their office in SF. Unfortunately I had already accepted something else by that point. But it seems like a really great place to work. Very social people who work hard but also like to have fun.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Triage Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I got contacted to do a 1 on 1 interview with a first year associate over skype. I personally thought the interview was really straight forward with nothing out of the blue. I personally didn't feel like I was connecting with my interviewee much though, she seemed to be in a hurry and kept looking off in the distance as I spoke to her. I felt that was a bit rude. I didn't get a call back for even a second interview which was kind of surprising as I come from one of their top universities and I also feel I really fit the vibe they are looking for (from what I've heard from my friends working there). But also not surprising because of the girl interviewing me, she didn't really seem interested in me. It is always a bit uncomfortable to be interviewing with someone who is the same age as you and has only worked at the said company for a few months...and this is the person who decides if you make it to the next level? Either way, it seems like a great place to start if you connect with the young associates.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Triage Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    One phone screen to make sure you're not an ax murderer, one skype interview, and final rounds. They mainly want to know that you can fit in with the culture (be fratty). The interview was very standard. Nothing crazy. They want to know you can hold a regular conversation without being awkward. Pre-existing skills aren't necessary because they will teach you everything you need to know.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Triage Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    If you are applying from one of Triage's core campuses during the school year (check website to confirm), the interview process involves 2 rounds, the first of which is on-campus and the second will be at the San Francisco office.

    The first interview will be behavioral based and will be with either a Manager or Principal at the firm. The second round has three interviews, all of which are behavioral and will be with Managers or Principals, and a case study. After the case study, candidates will be treated to lunch, accompanied by a Senior Associate and an Associate.

    The case study is straight-forward and does not require theoretical knowledge (e.g. 'How much does a 747 weight?'). The questions will be based on medical claims and ensuring candidates understand contract language and application of hospital rates.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Triage Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Like everyone outlined below, the off-campus interview process consists of initial 20-30 min Skype interview with Senior Associate, 2 Skype interviews (~30-40 min) with Managers and then the in person interview day with Managers/Principals: 2 45 min interviews, case study, lunch with Associate & Senior Associate, then last 45 min interview.

    I thought I would weigh in because I see so few rejection feedbacks. I honestly thought I was very well qualified: graduated with highest honors, top ranked college, had both healthcare and business background w/ a life science degree, leadership experiences, finished case study easily with ample time left, questions were easy, etc. BUT, it seems like "fit" is their main concern...at the end of the day, I'm a minority who's actively been involved in social justice-y activities (and yeah, it's on my resume). I don't come from a privileged background, and this served as a backdrop for some of my college experience which I had to explain (had to take a break from school to save up), and no I could never afford to be in Greek life.

    My first impression of Triage in person was "wow so frat," and they really did me a favor because I would've probably ended up hating it if I worked there. Everyone was extremely nice during the process though and quick to update from one step to the next--definitely hard to tell during the interviews if you're getting rejected or not. It's a shame that their culture is so limited, but maybe by providing more feedback on here, they'll consider changing (prob not though). So advice to future interviewees: exude frat culture, be white.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Triage Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied in June. Got contacted to start interview process in early August.

    1st round: 30 minute Skype interview with Senior Associate
    2nd round: 2 30 minute Skype interviews with Managers
    3rd/Final round: In-person full day. 3 45 minute interviews with Principals, 90 minute case study, and lunch with Senior Associate and Associate.

    All interviews were extremely relaxed. Interviewers ask questions to find out more about your personality, analytical experience, and eagerness to learn and be at the company. Case study is straight forward and fully explained beforehand; only thing to keep in mind is the time limit.
