Senior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
No Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Navigant (New York, NY (US)) in January 2019.

Interview

Had 3 phone call interviews. One with the HR person, and then two case studies over the phone with two different people.

I passed to the in-person interview at the NYC offices. That day was followed by standard fit interviews, one one-on-one case study, and a presentation of a case I was given to prepare beforehand.

Had an overall great experience, everyone was friendly nothing to complain about

Interview Questions

  • Typical questions for fit test ( tell me about yourself, why consulting, why Navigant etc).

    The case was standard, with some math to solve and some graph interpretation.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Navigant (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process went pretty quickly. First interview rounds were more fit based, last interview involved a case and an excel challenge. You are given 30 minutes to prepare for the case, which was unexpected and very helpful.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Navigant (Chicago, IL (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Started with a phone screen. In person interview included a presentation, case study, and going to lunch. I spoke with someone in every role that I'd interact with on a project, which helped me understand the project structure.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Navigant (Chicago, IL (US)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    The whole process took about 2 months. Recruiter for this role reached out for a quick phone screen and then met with 2 directors in person. Then met with other team members, 2 managing consultants, 1 principle, 1 consultant. 2 days later, recruiter told me they moved forward with other candidates. Questions are mainly about experience and cultural fit.

    I also want to say that I did not like the team culture there (I will not say which practice though). One managing consultant kept interrupting me and I felt like she was trying to talk down to me. Other team members from principle to consultant are all very nice of course but super serious, even a little awkward. Some of them didn't know how to interview asking irrelevant questions, and the other managing consultant didn't know how to have a conversation. I am glad they did choose me because i wouldn't want to work with them.

    My advise to candidates interview with Navigant: know your experience, know what they do, know how your experience connects to the role. But also keep in mind, you are interviewing them too. Prepare for some questions about the role, the job and the culture. Observe team culture, ask yourself would you like working here with these people. That is very important.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Navigant (New York, NY (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied both through Navigant website (very tedious application) and through university recruiting - the exact timeline of application was very confusing and conflicting. First-round scheduled for a phone interview much earlier in the application process: talking with a current Senior Consultant in life sciences practice. Conversation was mostly based around resume and past experiences and was friendly. However, I did not hear anything from them in months after the first-round interview. Write to ask recruiting contact, just to find out that my application and interview "fell through the crack" and did not make it to further round - definitely not a professional way to structure recruiting process.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Navigant (Washington, DC (US)).

    Interview

    I was contacted by recruiter, she set up a quick phone screen with the hiring manager. She then scheduled an in person interview the following week. I was made an offer the same week and after negotiation, we came to a salary. It was a very quick turn around time from phone screen to offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Navigant.

    Interview

    Do not expect any response to an online application. I've applied to a number of positions here, and the company doesn't have the decency to set up an automated receipt confirmation email.

    Eventually, I did have a number of interviews for a position. On that occasion, I submitted an application and received no response for three months. I then got an email from a recruiter for the company to set up a phone interview for 30 minutes. That went well and I eventually had two other interviews with more senior members of the company and with people I would actually be working with. After that, I was asked if I would consider moving to a different location, which I made clear I would not. At that point, I was told that someone would get back to me, and I never heard another word from the company. I'm won't fault them for not offering me a position at that point, but I am a bit turned off by the lack of any response after going through several rounds of interviews.

    The interview process I went through was:
    1. Phone screen with recruiter.
    2. Separate phone calls with two different senior staff members on the team with the open position.

    The steps that were described for me as being part of the process were:
    3. In person interview with a group of individuals from the team.
    4. Presentation on a topic of candidate's choice.

    Steps 3 & 4 would take place on the same day, and would likely result in an employment decision on that day.

    The people I spoke with from the company were very polite and intelligent, but the application and recruiting process are nightmarish. Navigant has no regard for applicants, as evidenced by the lack of even an automated reply. For a company that also provides IT consulting, their recruiting webpage is a joke. (Use Internet Explorer 10 for best results!)

    Additionally, at last check, Navigant does not accept cover letters.

    Part of the reason I think I got an interview was that I have an acquaintance who works at the firm whose name I was able to use as a reference. If you would like to work here, I would strongly suggest you network with some people who already do.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Navigant (Washington, DC (US)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process was a good time. Did not have too many challenges with the case study or the behavioral questions. If you are prepared, you will succeed. Be able to articulate why you want to join Navigant, know your core values and don't bring second rate modeling skills when you take the excel test.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Navigant (Boston, MA (US)).

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews. The first was 30 minute phone interview (after a couple weeks from application deadline). The second round was in person at the Boston office. They gave us a technology to review and to put a presentation together for the interview day. On interview day, 3 rounds of interviews: two were 1-1 interview (behaviorial & case question), and one was the prepared presentation.

    Interview Questions

    • Very typical consulting questions - Behavorial - Tell me about yourself, your experience, why consulting. 2 rounds of case interviews style, 1 interview was presenting a technology market overview.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Navigant in March 2013.

    Interview

    2 step process

    Initial phone interview with a recruiter. Very basic, describe what you have done, what you are doing and what you want. Recruiter was knowledgeable about the subject area and was able to ask substantive questions and carry a meaningful discussion

    Then

    Four in person interviews. All four asked questions based on my resume and one asked substantive questions to test knowledge of subject matter. Conversational and personal. Didn't feel like an interview, except for one where the interviewer was a bit of a tough guy.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Little room to negotiate. However they are flexible on salary, not so much on vacation days.
