    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, MI (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at ALTEN (Troy, MI (US)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Disappointing and unprofessional. The actual manager who was supposed to interview me did not show up. I was interviewed by another manager who did not know what position I was interviewing for. This manager also tried to hide the fact that she wasn't the actual manager. This manager was also outright rude and presumptuous. Usually I entertain basic questions when the questioner is listening. However, this manager was clearly killing time to get out of the situation. Never have I ever felt the need to walk out of an interview until today. I reject Alten group before they reject me.

    Consultant Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, MI (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ALTEN (Troy, MI (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was called for an in-person interview at their office in Troy, Michigan. Two people interviewed me for multiple positions based in and out of Michigan. Everything went smoothly and they told me about the next stage which was to be held the following week with the client.

    The whole next week passed and I was never contacted from any of the staff from Alten. Even my mails weren't responded to. Finally after I called them, they gave me a standard reply that someone else was selected.

    I don't have a problem with someone else get but the unprofessional of these people. They have all under qualified Frenchmen working there who call themselves Engineers, I don't know but by what qualification.

    Glad I didn't join them and I would never recommend anyone to apply for a job at this bogus unprofessional so-called consulting company.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ALTEN (Seattle, WA (US)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    They are a global consulting company seeking to branch out into technology companies in the Seattle area. As such, they're concurrently trying to sign up the actual consulting contracts while building a pipeline of people who could staff them. In other words, there is no real position open yet.

    Framed that way, the interview was primarily a get-to-know-each-other in their small executive suite in Bellevue. It was an enjoyable conversation with no real surprising questions. Given the uncertainty about their contract, there was no clear call-to-action at this time.

    Business Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ALTEN (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Ridiculous and shameful process. Ended up without any type of formal answer after two months of Skype and in-person interviews (including with HR, team leaders, and country manager several times.) ALTEN repeatedly communicated interest and high level of certitude but never moved forward due to terrible organization: I was told many times that the contract would come the following week. Employees seemed mostly unhappy and after being asked multiple times in each interview whether I was ok with working significant overtime, I came to realize that this company has as much respect for its employees as it does for the people it interviews. Base offer is low; don't be fooled by the promise of a company car. Don't waste your time, avoid this company at all costs.
