    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Knowledgent in January 2018.

    Interview

    All interviews were over the phone. First conversation was with the recruiter, followed by a leaders of the internal competencies and concluded with a PM for an active project. Questions largely revolved around past project experience and the type of role I saw myself playing on projects. I asked a lot of questions as well around the types of engagements they encountered and internal opportunities for growth.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Knowledgent.

    Interview

    Easy, quick - considering it's a revolving body shop, they were desperate and quick to hire.

    They asked general questions about resume content and described the company and the services offered to clients. It was a conversational interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Knowledgent (Boston, MA (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiting process was awful across the board. I'm happy at my current job but thought the company sounded interesting, so continued speaking with a recruiter. Shortly after the new year, the recruiter reached back out offering to connect me with one of their senior data scientists, which I had asked for in order to get a feel for the day-to-day working there. Was expecting a casual, open conversation to get a few questions of mine answered. What happened was an interview ambush, for lack of a better term, and not a behavioral one. I was asked some pretty technical questions that I had no preparation for (seeing as I was not told it was an interview, and it was not even implied that this was an interview beforehand). I have a good amount of technical education and training and could have answered more of those questions intelligently had I had time to prepare. Have not heard from anyone at Knowledgent since. Very unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Knowledgent (New York, NY (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Not an enjoyable process- the bad reviews on glassdoor are spot on. Spoke to one of the leads of the data practise and his tone/attitude was quite condescending. Lost interest in working there right away. Prior to that convo, The HR lady tried her best to defend the negative reviews on glassdoor that I brought up with her but didn't quite convince me. I had two rounds - one was with the head of a department that went well and that guy was quite nice too. Then I was scheduled to speak with a technical lead who was just overly obsessed with technical depth (hello this is a consulting company!) and he clearly did not belong to a consulting organization - I will not name him here for professional reasons but his tone and attitude was as if he looked down on anyone that is not a tech nerd in one software. I knew this is a bit of a tech body shop rightaway where they are looking for someone who they can place as an "Expert" in some software that will not be cool in six months and they will let you go. Not a good consulting company so if you are an allround rockstar and not a tech geek, stay away.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Knowledgent in August 2016.

    Interview

    Had a phone screen with the recruiter (he reached out to me). I felt that went well. Next was a phone interview with someone that would be a peer. I felt that went well. Next the recruiter sets up a phone screen with the hiring manager. Hiring manager never calls. I follow-up with recruiter and he apologized and said the hiring manager was caught up in a customer meeting. He rescheduled for the same time the next day. Hiring manager never calls. I follow-up with recruiter and get the same story and he says he will set something up in a week. Nothing was setup so I follow-up again and get no response. I'm perfectly fine with them not being interested in me, but the way they handled it was very unprofessional.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Knowledgent (Boston, MA (US)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted on LinkedIn through a recruiter. He scheduled a call with me and basically talked to entire time. He invited me to the office to meet their consultants but the day of the interview (Interview was at 9:30AM and he called at 8:30AM and cancelled). He didn't send any reschedule invite until the day before the actual reschedule. During the actual interview, he didn't greet me at the door but had me walk into the office aimlessly. He kept majority of the talking and left me almost no time to ask questions. Interviews with other consultants were decent. I also interviewed with some more senior partners there and it seemed more like a negotiation session than an interview.

    Overall experience was unprofessional.
