    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FSG (Seattle, WA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview where I was asked detailed questions about my background and how it relates to consulting. One week later I was contacted for a follow-up interview in the office, where I had three separate interviews. During these interviews I was asked more probing questions about my experience and work habits, and I was provided with a lot of information about the work and culture of FSG. I was also given a test where I had to analyze a case study and answer some questions based on it. Within a few days I was contacted to set up a third interview. I was told that they wished to interview me as soon as possible, and I should provide them with my availability for the next few days. I responded immediately and then did not hear back from them for another 2 weeks. The next communication I received said that I was no longer being considered for the position. I suspect that I may have lost the position because I asked about work-life balance and admitted that I had young children, and the people who I asked seemed nervous about my question.
