Is an hour interview with one person too long? Thought 30 mins was standard.

Depends on the company and position. It is on the longer end for a 1 on 1.

I recently completed 8 30 minute interviews in one day! My gawd I was worn out after

For reals this is exhausting. I had the 4 30 min by video conference with no break in between.

I’ll do 4 interviews, back to back each for 30 mins. I thought that’s enough to get the “feeling” If we are a match

Sometimes depends where you are in process. For intro calls 30 is good. But next round 30 is too short I find - when I was interviewing 45 was sweet spot but sometimes the hiring manager would be 1 hour or they just add additional interviews with hiring manager if you had shorter ones to start.

There’s no problem with it. Just pointing out in my experience for industry roles, I had virtually no time to ask questions in the 30 min interviews once we were past the first round. I was interviewing at multiple companies and those extra 15 min were crucial for me to get my questions answered and help decide if it was a company I could see myself at.

Depends on position and people. I recently had a 1:1 zoom interview that was scheduled for 45 minutes, but we talked for almost 2 hours.

Got a few 45min ones that went over time. An hour seems normal, which kinda blows.

I have a series of 6 45 minute interviews coming up🥴

Pretty sure it’s do to the remote environment. If it was normal times, then they would have flown me out to spend the day at the office meeting people and having the interviews.

Mine were all about an hour long.

Want to get the advice of the group here:

Applying online to a company where there are legit 10 openings that I am qualified for and interested in. I have a referral at the company as well

1) do I apply to all 10 jobs, or does that look bad? I would optimize resume for each of the jobs

2) do I use my referral for all 10? Don’t want to flood his inbox or look like I am just mass applying, or diluting his opinion so to speak.

Thanks for the thoughts!

Hey Team - Without giving away too much information, I just took the gmat and scored a 710 (Q49, V37) with 8 IR and 6 AWA. My GPA is a 3.6 in Economics from a top 15 college.

Looking for anyone in the know about recruiting at Alvarez & Marsal. I applied back at the start of the pandemic and made it to the 2nd to last round interview, but lost out to someone with more restructuring experience. I tried to reapply recently after gaining some experience and passing my CIRA exams, but was told that A&M basically won’t consider me for 3 years after my first application. I’ve never hear of a company having such a policy. Has anyone ever heard of this or have more insight?
