    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cobec Consulting (Washington, DC) in August 2016.


    Two sets of interviews. One- group phone interview. Two- in-person one-on-one interview. See below for types of interview questions. Then an offer. Slight negotiations during the offer process. After the acceptance of the offer, there was additional time prior to onboarding to do a background check. The background check took the longest- it's a Public Trust US government background check.

    Interview Questions

    • What prior experience do you have running a large project? What government contracting experience do you have? What are some work challenges you've experienced and how have you overcome them?   Answer Question
