    Interview

    I interviewed as a part of their campus recruiting process. They invited me for their info session when I spoke to them at the campus career fair.

There were two interviews half an hour each and they asked typical behavioral interview questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hitachi Consulting (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Process consisted of 3 phone interviews- 1 Sr Mgr, 1 Director, 1 VP and a face-to-face w/ a VP over about 3 week period. Initial feedback was the preliminary discussions had taken place with the formalized process to happen soon. Never hear back. Repeated efforts to contact the firm were unanswered. They reached out to me initially, so I would consider it one of the most unprofessional interviews I've had.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about specific experiences I've had. Was a bit unexpected b/c I had met the interviewer in person prior and discussed my CV.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Hitachi Consulting in August 2013.

    Interview

    Phone call with practice talent acquisition followed by technical phone screen. Then on-site interview with hiring manager and several members of the team. Team interview is typical round about one on one interview with architect, consultant and PM. Many technical questions, some good and discussion provoking, some pretty shallow or just factoid types. Code writing exercise, checking someone else's code, looking for errors and some diagramming, architecture and design elaboration, proving your point, behavioral and situation questions.

    The process was a bit chaotic and not well organized, but people were nice.

It was a series of 4 interviews, starting with a manager, then gradually moving up and ending with an interview with a VP. There were no case questions, just behavioral ones. Afterwards, all the interviewers//interviewees went to lunch.
