Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ZS Associates (San Mateo, CA) in July 2010.

Interview

Applied online and had first conversation with the recruiter. After talking to me for a good 15-20 minutes and asking questions about my experience, she asked me to send her my college transcripts (apparently they are big on that).

This was followed by a phone interview that lasted around 45 minutes. The interview who I believe was a senior consultant gave me a scenario and asked me how I would proceed. It was a case interview but no quantitative emphasis. Most the answers he was looking for were qualitative and were meant to see how you approach to solve a problem. Real nice guy and not too hard interview if you can think at the spot.

They ended up calling me to California for the final interview but I had to let go of the opportunity due to personal reasons.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ZS Associates (San Mateo, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    ZS Associates called about 2-3 months after applying to the company online. There were two phone interviews and a final interview (about four hours) at the office. The on-site interview I spoke with about six employees, all asked about 4-5 questions and one case study interview. I had a positive experience and everyone in the company that I spoke with was fairly friendly.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ZS Associates in June 2015.

    Interview

    Was contacted about a month after submitting application online. Set up behavioral interview, with HR calling 45 minutes late. Was told I would hear back by the end of the week but heard back 3.5 weeks later to set up first round interview. Both interviewers called late and case interviewer didn't seem to be familiar with the WebEx system. Overall, wasn't impressed by the interviewers nor how they handled themselves in terms of communication/followup. Was contacted several days later that the team decided to not move forward, just as well as the feeling is mutual.
