    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at West Monroe Partners (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through the company website, and received an email from their talent acquisition office about two weeks later. I had an initial phone interview with someone from the talent acquisition office, followed by another phone interview with a hiring manager, and finally an office interview at their Chicago offices. Overall, the experience was very positive, and everyone I spoke with from West Monroe was great!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at West Monroe Partners (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I had a very brief phone screen with a recruiter as the first step. This was several months after applying online, but the process moved quickly once it finally started. After the phone screen, I was scheduled for an onsite interview. I interviewed with four people, all back to back, and about 45 minutes each. Each interview had a different focus: one was behavioral, one was skills based, one was cultural fit, and one was a traditional case interview. They were all somewhat conversational, but they definitely have specific questions/structure to the interviews.

    Interview

    Given the case interview first then the behavioral after that. The case wasn't too bad and we talked for a bit when I was finished. The behavioral was easy because the recruiter was easy going.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at West Monroe Partners.

    Interview

    I can't seem to get the phone interview with the recruiter re-scheduled...initial call to me went right to voicemail, unfortunately. Have tried several times to re-connect but to no avail...very disappointed in the lack of response from this individual...makes me question the integrity of this company especially with the number of very positive reviews here on GD.

    Business Operations Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at West Monroe Partners (West Lafayette, IN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Interview is split into two parts, behavioral and case. The case interview comes first. You sit down in a room with an assessor and review the case. You are allowed to ask questions, take notes, make calculations, and see graphs/charts displaying more information. After half an hour, you must present the case to the assessor. (*IMPORTANT: Take notes on every part of case interview, as you're required to submit a write up summarizing your case findings within 48 hours after your interview, and don't want to forget any details). I suggest going online for some sample case interviews to prepare what questions you should be asking and how your write up and analysis should look like.
    After your case interview, you go directly to a behavioral interview. The behavioral interview I had, was with a woman from their HR department. She was not very knowledgeable on WMP or their internship programs or incentives, which I thought reflected somewhat poorly on WMP, however she assured me that she had only been with WMP for a few months. Otherwise, I thought the behavioral interview went pretty well.

    It was a two step process: a behavioral interview and a case interview. The behavioral interview was fairly standard, and the case interview was an interesting scenario that required sending a follow up summary and recommendation within two days.
