    Entretien de Internship

    Employé anonyme - Palaiseau
    Offre d'embauche acceptée
    Expérience positive
    Entretien dificile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Charles River Associates (Palaiseau) en janvier 2019.

    Entretien

    At first it was supposed to be a Skype interview but due to technical problems we end up making a phone interview. The two interviewers introduced themselves then asked me to do the same. They asked questions about some project that I did and how I handled the team work. They pursued with a case study about a merger between two supermarkets, they asked me about potential negative and positive effects of the merger, example of variables that I would need if I needed to evaluate those impacts. We also talked about predatory pricing.

    Entretien

    Had a brief interview over the phone where the majority of the time was dedicated to explaining the position to ME. They immediately offered to fly me out the following week for a super day. I arrived day of where 4 other people were being interviewed. Throughout the day, the interviewers were very conversational and it seemed like they were trying to sell me on the position rather. At the end of the day, I was given a couple of cases and given an hour to present on them. This was not a typical consulting case, but more in line with the type of investigation work they deal with. The interviewer asked a couple of questions as I went, but I felt confident in my answers and performance. I felt throughout the process that they were trying to sell me on the company rather than finding out why I was a good fit. Was blindsided when I did not receive an offer. Maybe I should've made a greater effort to shift the conversation into a discussion about me.

    Entretien de Consulting Associate

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - New York, NY (États-Unis)
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience négative
    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Charles River Associates (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en janvier 2020.

    Entretien

    Life Sciences practice, NYC office

    1) Applied online, was asked to undertake an online assessment
    2) 1st round interview by Skype: Standard case interview
    3) 2nd round interview at office: Case and fit interviews, one presentation

    Overall impression was fairly negative, found CRA to be a bit blah.

    During the 2nd round, one interviewer butchered the case. She was trying too hard to make the case challenging, and would not share data despite asking for it multiple times. The question was about decreasing revenue growth. I said that it could be d/t decrease in volume or price. I'd love to see patient volume data if available. She said, we have that but I'll not share that with you right now. Duh! Because of that, I kept on going in circles as I could not rule out any possibilities. After wasting 20 min she shared 5 exhibits (which were dense) and now I had only 10 min to skim those exhibits, generate insights and lead the case.

     For context: I am a seasoned case solver and have successfully cracked BCG and Bain. I was thinking about transitioning to a job in boutique consultancy hence applied to CRA.

    Another unprofessional thing was the VP who was supposed to do the fit interview bailed at the last minute. The interview was supposed to start at noon and he informed he's unavailable at 12.05 pm. If I can fly halfway across the US to interview, I expect the employer to value my time. I do understand that emergencies can happen but I expect VP to be more proactive. Further, I never received an apology from recruiting and an offer to reschedule, basically implying that this was not a big deal for CRA.

    Applied on their website and on handshake. Then got a first-round in-person, which was a mix of behavioral and technical (cases testing your numerical analysis abilities). Finally, I did a second-round superday at their office.

    It was hard and they didn't ask me from the file they provided. The guy asks me questions from the network protocol questions and other questions that weren't not part of an analyst position

    Applied online via school portal. Got interview invitation (phone interview) after about 2-3 weeks. I actually applied two position, one was Analyst, and the other one is this one (Life Sciences Analyst). I guess Analyst position is more competitive.
