    Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    Highly unprofessional and amateur with predominately recent college grads as employees. The entire process and every communication along the way felt like dealing with a college club and not a legitimate company. What other reviewers say about this being such a young company with too many kinks to be worked out is true!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by a recruiter. The interview was around 20-30 minutes. Nothing unexpected; asked me about my research experience, interest in healthcare and 'ideal job environment.' The interview was two weeks ago and I still did not hear back. However, I got an e-mail asking me to fill out self-identification forms. It seemed like an automated e-mail so not sure what's happening.

    Interview Questions
    • There was no difficult or unexpected question. I guess 'describe your ideal job environment' would be more on the unexpected side.   Answer Question

    Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    Took two weeks following submitting my resume online to be contacted for an interview (June). After this, there were two more interviews. The first was with an (I assume) entry level professional in that same position you were interviewing for in another department. The next was with a higher up. A third interview then takes place but the process took so long (at this point it was August) that I had already been offered another position at another company.

    Interview Questions
    • Interview questions were pretty standard- mostly just asked to be walked through your resume. All in all the interview was more of a conversation than a question and answer session.   Answer Question

    Higher Education Researcher Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    Rushed process and definitely felt like I was one of hundereds going through the interview process. You have an interview with two people at a time and have a writing portion. The interviewees were my age or a little older but seemed uninterested. For one of my interviews, they didn't schedule a room so I had to go to their office with four other desks and people were coming in and out. It seemed so distracting and unprofessional to me.

    Interview Questions
    • More behavioral but had a case question in there to just analyze your thought process.   View Answer

    Interview through an internal submission. They seemed really receptive, although I've read they care a lot about GPA which I think is zero representation of who I am. No call back

    Interview Questions
    • GPA- because apparently getting over 3.0s for the last 6 semesters of college is not good enough   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an online application and received an email from the general HR person the following day giving me the opprotunity for a phone interview. I quickly replied but never received a response however this was over the December holidays so it may have had something to do with that. However the HR person did eventually resend the email and was quick to respond then. I had a brief 30 minunte screening interview. She asked me about my current position and had a lot of questions about my academic experience. One of the questions was an aspect of my academic experience I would change and how I do in managing goals and priorties. She was very friendly but it was a very cookie cutter interview she didn't really seem interested in what I have to say but I realize this is the way it is sometimes. She briefly went over the position and what the next steps in the interview process would be.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application online, and the next day I was contacted to set up a phone interview with a recruiter. As other have said, the initial phone interview is largely behavioral. They ask you basic questions concerning your research experience, why you chose your academic institution, and why you are interested in working at the Advisory Board. The next day, I was asked for a follow up interview with an individual from the Research and Insights team as well as a timed, online, case-style question.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was then contacted to set up a phone interview. The interview was straight forward and rather generic. The interview seemed to come from a script, and the interviewer sounded young and relatively inexperienced. I talked a bit about myself, and then got into some of the research projects I had been involved with.

    I am currently waiting to hear back from ABC, following my interview.
