    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Egon Zehnder (Palo Alto, CA (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interviews through a staffing agency for executive assisant role. Very friendly office manager; direct and warm interview with a great explanation of culture and responsibilities. The office was quiet and clean; interview took place in a conference room. No red flags at all but the culture didn't seem like it would be a match for me personally and professionally.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Egon Zehnder (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I was recruited on campus. The first interview was at the office and the final round was via phone. The interview was pretty standard but the phone interviewer was incredibly rude. The questions were very similar to the first round and therefore my answers were very similar. The first lady who interviewed me was professional but the second round interviewer kept saying things like "how weird" or "that's strange" to all my answers. The interview definitely left me not feeling very good about the firm.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Egon Zehnder (Chicago, IL (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online via my university and was contacted a week later by email for a phone interview. I had a pretty standard phone interview that was conducted by someone that was also an ID Analyst and who I would potentially be working with. She filled me in on her background and the actual position. Then had me ask a couple questions. After that I was told that my information and answers would be passed on to the person doing the actual hiring and if selected I would be hearing from them to set up an in person interview within a week or so. I sent a thank you email to the person I spoke with and then I never heard from them again even for a rejection email.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Egon Zehnder.

    Interview

    Met with three people. They seemed generally interested in what I had to offer. They seemed to be a growing organization, and were keen to get this new office location up and running pretty quickly. People were all very nice, polite, and keen to find the right person for the role. They ended up going with an internal hire.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Egon Zehnder in January 2015.

    Interview

    30 minute phone interview screening. I talked with the head recruiter for my university. He asked basic fit questions. The interviewer was friendly, though a tad awkward on the phone; he also called about 15 minutes late. Presumably there would be a case interview after, but I never heard anything back from the company.

The interview asked questions about my resume and past experiences that I had that seemed relevant.
