    Research and Insights Analyst Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Initial Interview: On-campus recruiting. Behavioral. Very straightforward and every question was from Glassdoor, so read up!
    On-site interviews: They flew me to DC, which was great. There I had the 2 interviews (1 case and 1 behavioral), a snack break, and an "tentative" interview that was later cancelled. My interviewers were Senior Consultants and were relatively cold, so prepare for that if you're a cheerful person. The interview was cancelled for 3 out of 4 people I was with. The 4th guy did have his "tentative" interview. The receptionist lied profusely about the meaning of this cancellation, stating that it was simply due to the department being called into a meeting or leaving early because it was a Friday. Not particularly nice and I felt duped when I later read Glassdoor interviews that detailed this "tentative" interview trick that ABC uses to cut people. I haven't heard back yet, but those disrespectful lies alone are enough to make me not want to join this company.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    Very clear and straightforward. First phone interview was just behavioral. Second round was 2 cases, didn't get to the third. The first case was just a basic math problem. The second was an open ended case given some numbers, asking about what areas a non-profit hospital could invest in. It was hard because both seemed more confusing at first but really were very straightforward.

    Interview Details

    I applied through university career services. Received an email about a phone interview within a week. During the interview, the interviewer asked me basic behavioral questions. Prepare for the research project question. I discussed a performance I had written for a theater NGO though the interviewer asked for an academic research project example. Not sure which is better.

    Submitted resume through my university's job board. Got scheduled for an on-campus interview about a week later. The interview questions were fairly straightforward, mostly about my resume, my research experience, and a few behavioral questions. They invited me to interview in their DC office, which will happen in about a week. The on-site interview will involve speaking with 2-3 employees with case interviews and behavioral questions.

    Senior Health Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Advisory Board.

    Interview Details

    The first was the phone interview with HR rep. During my phone interview the HR recruiter was a bit too enthusiastic where it seemed like she didn't really listen to my responses. She then asked about salary requirements and tried to tell me the position was in the 60-70 thousand range for a senior level position in DC! I told her I looked up the salary and it was much higher then what she was stating. She told me she would make a note that I was looking for a high range. I asked her why the range she was telling me was much lower then what I had found on Glassdoor and other sites for a senior position and she didn't really have an answer. I think because she was relatively new to the company and wanted to try to save the company some money by hiring a candidate who may not have all the knowledge for salary range prior to the hr screening call. Word of advice do your research and stand your ground to let them know you have done your homework!!!! I really did not appreciate how this particular HR rep really low balled the salary and I had to correct her and let her know that I knew she was going way below!

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume and it took approximately one week to process. The first round happened on campus. Interviewers were very nice and friendly and asked basic behavior questions. Nothing really unexpected. If you prepare for all questions on this site, it should be fine. I'm still waiting for the result. They said it would take another two weeks to process.
