    Technical Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  London, England (UK)

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Great communication and planning before the interview, and they seemed very keen. They offered to skip the first interview and went straight to a technical challenge, which was relatively straight-forward if you know your stuff. Their office in a great location on the London Riverside (although the numbering system is crazy, so don't panic if you pass buildings numbers 1, 6 and 3 in that order!). The people came across as very friendly in person. Unfortunately after the interview their communication has been abysmal, with absolutely no contact afterwards.

    Interview Questions

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hitachi Consulting.

    Interview Details

    I got my first interview from a recruiting event on campus. From there I was asked to attend second round interviews in the office. It was a series of 4 interviews, starting with a manager, then gradually moving up and ending with an interview with a VP. There were no case questions, just behavioral ones. Afterwards, all the interviewers//interviewees went to lunch.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus site, interviewed on campus. Questions were pretty basic, behavioral questions only. No case in the first round. Interviewer told me he had some tips for me for the next round. 3 weeks later, I received an email saying that I was not being invited to the next round. Seemed like a good place to work though.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Hitachi Consulting in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by current consultants. They were all very personable and forthcoming with information. In truth, I was not as aligned with the position as I should have been. They were seeking applicants with a stronger focus on analytics, which I did not have.

    Interview Details

    Their hiring process is a personal interview on the spot and then they decide within the higher ranked employees in the company if the interviewer should get the open position. It is realively easy to get a job if there is an open position and you have the needed qualifications but if there is no open spot its almost impossible for them to open more positions even if they have many empty desks.

    Interview Questions
    • -Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
      Also asked conflict resolution questions with a mix of office ethics.
