Managing Consultant Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CrossCountry Consulting (Washington, DC (US)).

Interview

Applied via LinkedIn to a posting for a Managing Consultant position. Contacted by a recruiter within a week of my submission via LinkedIn. The recruiter requested a copy of my resume, and shortly after I sent my resume I had a Skype call. This second interview was no different from the first, in that was a review of my background and what the firm had to offer - both interviews were open and conversational and without issue. Shortly after this second interview, I had a phone interview with a manager/managing consultant, which was a more detailed/technical interview where I had many of my role-based questions answered (this was on a Friday). I was contacted by the recruiter that initially contacted me concerning an office visit to be scheduled for the following week. The company paid for the airfare and limo, and took me to lunch on during my half-day visit - I flew up to Washington DC on an early morning flight and returned on a 3pm flight the same day. During my office visit I was welcomed by the director of HR & Recruiting and then proceeded to meet with a managing consultant that was extremely friendly and answered all of my questions. The next interview was with a Director - this interview was centered around my experiences. The third and final interview was with a partner. This interview was very awkward in that the interviewer did not ask any questions and we sat in relative silence for the duration of the interview. I then went to lunch with an associate director and two managing consultants, which I thought went well despite what seemed to be a tension between the managing consultants and an associate director. After I returned home, I sent the usual thank you notes to all of those that I interviewed with and received one email from my recruiter informing me that I should receive word concerning feedback by the end of the week (my interviews were on a Tuesday) - also, HR indicated before I left that day that she should have feedback within the next two days following my interview. This next week marks 6 weeks since I have interviewed and still no word from anyone despite a promise by the recruiter to have feedback for me in response to a follow-up email I sent requesting feedback. I have never invested so much time in an interview process to have been treated as unprofessional as this with no word despite promises by two different people.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CrossCountry Consulting (New York, NY (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Was referred to a Partner in New York through an ex-colleague.

    Had a positive, lengthy call with HR, then moved on to in-person interviews. I met with 2 Partners and a handful of consultants. I did not get an offer, but was very impressed with the group of people I met from CrossCountry. The interview process, and the Internal Recruiter leading me through, it was particularly caring and thoughtful, and the prompt feedback was appreciated.

    Interview

    The interview process was very smooth since HR is wonderful to work with. I had one HR interview over the phone, two phone interviews (Partner & Director), and in-person interview with Partner. The interviews were very focused on your skill-sets and what you could offer to CCC. Once the interviews were over, HR stayed in constant contact on the next steps, which I appreciated.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at CrossCountry Consulting (Washington, DC (US)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with CrossCountry over a 18 month period. Having worked in both industry and consulting, I was determined to meet with as many people as possible, ask as many questions as possible, and make sure the fit was correct. The professionalism, patience and sincerity displayed by everyone I met with and interviewed with, from recruiters to partners was impressive. They were also looking for 'fit', which is important to me. It didn't seem like they would simply hire anyone, but instead were looking for the right personality along with the professional skillset to fit the role/need.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CrossCountry Consulting (McLean, VA (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very thorough. It began with an interview with the Recruiting Manager, 2 Skype Interviews, and then an onsite interview in McLean. It was much more personable and thorough than Partners I have interviewed with in the past, many of which did not require an onsite/face-to-face interview at all. I appreciate the investment CrossCountry makes to ensure they hire to their core values and culture.
