Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2010 bei Arthur D. Little (Cambridge, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

Vorstellungsgespräch

I applied to Arthur D Little after meeting their representative at a career fair. My initial perception of the brand as well as having had an interesting conversation with the consultant present at their booth encouraged me to look more into the company.

I applied by sending a 1-page cover letter along with a 1-page resume. I got an automated email response saying they'd get in touch in two weeks if there is a vacancy and otherwise I should understand that my application wasn't successful. This wasn't good for me and didn't give me a good impression of the company, to say the least. Such practice doesn't show any interest in candidates or respect of their time and value. When I spend time and effort to apply, I expect a personalised reply with the outcome. I immediately dropped the company from my serious watch list.

However, a week later, I received a message from a director who was recruiting at the time offering me a phone interview. We spoke for about 10-15 minutes, mainly about the practice and the position. No tough questions here, very friendly and professional conversation.

A week later, I was informed that I had passed the phone interview and invited accordingly to attend a half a day assessment. There, I was welcome by the director with whom I had the phone interview, who talked me through the history of the company and some numbers. Later, I had to go through two interviews, with two members of staff, each. I also was asked to give a presentation about anything I choose (prepared). Finally, I finished the day by solving a business case.

Once done, I was thanked by the director and let go. I was told they'd get in touch shortly with the outcome. It was another long waiting period but this time almost three weeks, to get a response. I was offered a position.

Overall, the experience was satisfactory. The people with whom I had the interviewed were the best part. They seemed to know what they were talking about and sounded full of experience. The director with whom I had the main communication and for whom I would have been working is very energetic and helpful and I think I would have been enjoyed being a part of his team. However, I had to decline the offer for the reasons below.

Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

  • The presentation part was tricky. I was asked to prepare a short talk about something that would possibly be of their interest. As I applied for a junior position, chances were that they knew much more about everything of their interest that I would.   1 Antwort

Gründe für die Ablehnung

I didn't feel the company was excited enough to have me on board, although in the end, I was assured otherwise. The waiting time was too long between each of the interview process stages. HR performance was poor to my standard. Although I was told that they're aggressively expanding, my gut feeling didn't support me in appreciating that.

Finally, in addition to all the above, the remuneration package was neither exciting nor promising. To join a company in such a stage of its life (now expanding, still nothing glamorous), one would need something attractive. Yes, it's not all about money, but it is one of the factors. I was later offered twice the number at another firm for a position of the same level.
