    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Pariveda Solutions (Dallas, TX (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews, in office interview and case study. It's definitely not an interview process that you can just show up and wing it. Pariveda has wonderful recruiters and interviewers to find the best possible person for the job.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pariveda Solutions (Dallas, TX (US)) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Very thorough interview process; consisted of initial phone screening with recruiter followed by phone interview with technical manager. Finally, a full day case interview with 3 different cases. If you don't pass one of the cases, you will be informed immediately; very challenging and you feel as though you've earned an offer.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pariveda Solutions (Dallas, TX (US)) in August 2008.

    Interview

    First, the good. The people were all well mannered, travel accommodations were arranged without any problems, and they even offered Starbucks.

    The downside.

    First, the interview is in Dallas. After numerous phone conversations and two separate meetings with employees in my area (roughly 5 hours of my time already) I walk out of the Dallas airport into the god awful August humidity and my first thought was "What the hell I am doing here?. And another six hours tomorrow?" After a restful sleep and a morning run which helped my attitude, I was off to my interview the next morning.

    Back to the interview.

    I really hated life about 30 minutes into the interview, which is not a good sign. It appeared that more than one Paraveda employee has experience with a large consulting firm, in particular Anderson Consulting (or Accenture as they are now known). All of those who came from there had glowing comments about Accenture, but seemed disillusioned by their experience with the culture of a large, corporate firm. Yet, they modeled their company structure and interview process almost exactly after Accenture. So you started this company to be different, how? If I wanted to interview with Accenture, I would have applied to them (which of course would not happen because I had no desire to ever work for Accenture). I mean, seriously. 5-6 hours of interviews after the time I already put in? It’s for a computer job, not the head of surgery for a hospital emergency room. And it’s for something that I’ve already done successfully for years. Between my resume and the first 5 or six hours on the phone, you should have a pretty good idea of whether or not he candidate is a good fit. What should be of interest is (a) do I click with their people (b) do I know how to hold my fork during a business luncheon with a client (c) my experience across a wide range of industries from both a technical and business perspective

    The same thing happened to a friend of mine, interviewing for an engineering job with a major computer firm. It so irritated her, she walked out of the interview. NOTE: In her case they did call her to apologize and offered her the position but she politely refused. I should have done the same, but my return flight home wasn’t’ for several hours and there is absolutely nothing that I wanted to do in Dallas.

    Second. Almost everyone seemed to have a story to tell about a former boss or company that behaved badly or put them in a bad situation. Of course, the obligatory question (or so it seemed) from everyone that day was “So have you had a similar experience and how did you handle it?” Probably a legitimate question except I haven’t had any bad stories. My past employers have all been very decent and very honest. The problem was that I felt that some of the people interviewing me were genuinely disappointed that I didn’t have my own sad story.

    Third. The salary. Their salaries are nice, but they didn’t match what I was earning. There really is no incentive for me to take a cut yet that is what I would have had to do if an offer was forthcoming. And while I do applaud their culture of giving back to the community (it’s sort

    Consultant (C1) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pariveda Solutions (Dallas, TX (US)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was very well thought through. They do several interviews to get to know you and then they have you do a standardized programming test that assesses your aptitude to programming. I enjoyed working with the recruiters. You'll receive an email if you get to go on to the next round. The next round consists of flying out and doing a case study interview. They put us in a team of three.

    • In the case study: Why did we make the assumptions we did?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pariveda Solutions (Dallas, TX (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First had a behavioral interview on the phone for 15 minutes. Then was invited to the local office to complete a 2-hr programming assessment. Not too difficult and did not require knowledge of any particular language. Then I was flown to the office that was recruiting for a final round interview. I was given a case and had 2 hours to prepare for a presentation to a panel of 3 managers. Basically, developed an algorithm and then the panel was there to see how you would communicate with clients.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Pariveda Solutions (Dallas, TX (US)) in August 2009.

    Interview

    Pariveda hires not for specific technical skillset but for analytical/problem solving mindset along with people skills. Interviews are more case study based. You will also undergo a personality test that determines what type of team member you are so they can better figure out how to manage you.

    There is no negotiation process - you will be interviewing for a particular level which determines your salary.

    Consultant (C2) Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pariveda Solutions (Dallas, TX (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process for Pariveda is a very lengthy and detailed process with multiple steps. Its starts out with a recruiter contacting me over the phone for a quick screening. The next interview I had was a video call with the recruiter and we went over questions about slides and videos provided after the first phone call. This gave me the chance to ask more detailed questions about the company. The next was a technical phone interview with a senior employee. This was more about my experience and less about theory or problem solving. The next interview was a face-to-face behavioral interview. The conversation was more about how I dealt with problems with team members, clients, and conflict. The last interview was a half-day on-site where you are given a pretty lengthy problem to figure your way through then present your results. After that, there is a free lunch with a member of the office.
