Overall Interview Rating
3.5 out of 5 Stars
The firm accepts applications/resumes and decides which ones to interview on campus. Typically, there are two rounds of interviews. After a candidate makes it through the first-round interview (usually conducted by a less senior employee that went to the school), he or she will have 2-3 second round interviews with a more senior manager (or managers) and at least one HR business partner. Recently, the second round decision has been made on the same day as the first round interview, and then the second round interview takes place on campus the following day. Formerly, the second round interview took place several weeks (or even a month) after the first round interview and happened at the hiring company site.
