Interview processI was interviewed by two senior consultants. The interview questions were mostly competency based. For example, to describe myself, why I decided to apply to Columbus, how do I manage my time, what are my strength and what are the weaknesses. The interview lasted about 40 minutes. I was asked to provide detailed responses to the questions.
Most difficult questionHow many balloons does it take to fill a room? What is more important for a business - making a profit or providing a great customer service?
