    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.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Triage Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Typical interview process with three stages including a phone interview, Skype interview, and an in-person interview at their San Francisco office. The in-person interview was about half a day. You interview with a few members of the team and go out to lunch with a member of the team you'll work with to get to know company culture.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Triage Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    During 2016 Fall Recruitment cycle. Applied through college recruitment following career fair. I think only reason I got interview was because they had met me so many times. 2 Interviews one on campus, and one in person at their SF office. The second one has a short assessment that they call a case but it's not case. It's basically just a review of billable claims. Easy and straightforward. Asked fairly typical interview questions.

    In terms of company culture very fratty and very not diverse at all. Seems like a fun company, but it seems for potential recruits they may place more weight on personality fit and interactions during the interview. Be confident is the biggest thing I think here.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward-went through off campus recruiting, where you have a skype interview followed by an in-person interview. You interview with upper management, complete a simple case study, and go to lunch with an associate and senior associate. Everyone is generally trying to get a feel for your personality and if you would be a good fit in the company.

It’s hard to tell if everyone is being fake or not but either way it's nice to be around colleagues your own age, and it is a great transition after college in that sense 2) Business Professional Experience - as a first job, it gives a good intro to dressing and behaving professionally, as well as a preview of office politics for future jobs 3) Start Group / Training - it's really cool how you go through orientation week and future trainings with the same group of people. Part of the reason I don't want to leave is because I want to get to know these people more! Especially if you've just moved to San Francisco, it’s a cool way to find your people. 4) Office location - my favorite thing about Triage! The 221 Main office is by the water, and conveniently close to all public transportation (muni, bus, ferry, etc) 5) Travel per diems. When you travel you get $62 a day for food etc. Definitely a financial benefit to travel, and you can use the flight money to "wrap" and go somewhere the weekend before if you get lucky enough to be on a travel project that includes a Monday on the client site. 6) VTO - Volunteer time off is a really cool thing that Triage does. You get 8 hours per year (two 4 hour blocks) to go volunteer with co-workers through one of Triage's partner organizations.” – Full Review
