    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ZS Associates (Princeton, NJ (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First part was on campus. It was a 2 part interview where one was a case study and the other was a basic behavioral. For the case study they give you information about the client and the situation and ask you a few questions. During the behavioral part, they asked a lot of questions about working in a group and leadership. The final round interview was at the office in Princeton and was a 5-hr interview with 5 different parts including lunch. Two of them are case studies, one behavioral, and the other part was just a demonstration where someone shows you and explains a project they are working on. Overall it wasn't a difficult interview. I got nervous and messed up on the behavioral part but for the most part, people are really nice and friendly there.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ZS Associates in February 2015.

    Interview

    Round 1- Online test comprising verbal, quants, logical and attention to detail.
    Round 2- Case Study. A 10-12 page case study would be given with a lot of data, tables, graphs and you need to solve it in 40 mins. Total 3 segments with 2 questions per segment. Later you need to debrief the case study to the interviewer and need to defend your answers.
    Round 3- Behavioral. Resume based questions, questions on your 4 years of college life, questions on your final year project. Guesstimate, brain teasers, puzzles etc. are also asked.
    Round 4- Fit for employment. They judge your attitude towards work. Questions would be asked on the job profile you are applying for. Some diplomatic questions. Conducted by one of the top officials of the company.

    My Round 3 and Round 4 were combined and taken by the same interviewer, the head. But they were candidates who had to undergo all these rounds along with 1 or 2 telephonic interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ZS Associates (Vellore) in February 2015.

    Interview

    There are four rounds and all the four are elimination rounds, besides three are face-to-face interview rounds. Written round(online) --> Case study --> Behavioral --> Job Fit. Be prepared for analytical questions (puzzles,logical questions,...) such type of questions are asked in plenty in all the rounds. There may be a telephonic round as well, before moving to Job Fit round.

    Interview Questions

    • In the case study interview, questions will be asked from the case study you solved. At first, a case study is required to be solved for around 40 minutes, followed by an interview. They see your approach, than the exactness of your answer/numbers. But, more accuracy is always an added advantage. There may be a telephonic round as well, before moving to Job Fit round.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ZS Associates (Gurgaon, Haryana) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied though my friend who is currently working there. After about 90 days i got a call from the HR regarding a written test. After the test again there was no communication for about a month. Then then I got an email and call saying that my interview had been scheduled. There were around 7 people for the position. 1st there was 3 case study which was pretty difficult as you only get 30 mins to solve them. Then you have to explain your approach to one of the Staff member. After this there was another interview (resume based), checking your logical reasoning (guesstimates and puzzles). Then a final HR round.

    • Most difficult part is the case study. If you are through there are good chances of being selected.   Answer Question
