    I applied through on-campus recruiting and was given an interview. The night before there was an information session and networking event. There were three back-to-back interviews including a behavioral, structured case, and unstructured case. The behavioral interview and the structured case were very straight-forward.

Case interview included two scenarios in which you needed some basic economics in order to solve. Included things like optimization of profit, MR-MC = profit.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ZS Associates.

    Interview

    I have to say, I've never experience disorganization like this before. Here is the series of events.

    Day 0: Email from recruiter asking for times I have available to chat about role. Same day I respond back with some times available.
    Day 5: After not hearing back, I email recruiter to check in to see if recruiter received my email.
    Day 7: Recruiter final reaches back out to me via email and offers a time for us to chat. I decline the time and offer new time to chat, she declines and counters with a final chat time. I respond and accept time to chat.
    Day 8: Recruiter calls (not the time we agreed to chat). I miss the call then call back to leave voicemail and re-confirm our time we agreed on.
    Day 9: No call from the recruiter (time we agreed upon), so I email to schedule a new time to chat.
    Day 12: Another call from the recruiter who left a voicemail saying that we were scheduled to talk at this time (we were not scheduled). I missed the call, because I wasn't expecting it, and did not respond back.

    At this point, I just gave up. Terrible experience. I was interested in the company but after this experience, I wasn't even motivated to reach out to another recruiter or anything. As a candidate, I felt extremely unimportant.
