PSA: I had a horrible experience applying for a job at Devoted Health. Applied online and then got asked to schedule a phone interview. On the day of the interview, I waited 20 min and nothing happened. I emailed the HR rep, he didn’t acknowledge or apologize and just told me to reschedule so I did. I even sent a separate email to confirm the second phone call. Second day of the interview, same thing, no show. I sent an email letting him know that my time is not being valued. (Cont’d)

Anyone have any experience case prepping as an experienced consulting hire? I am actively interviewing, but finding the case interviews tougher now than when I entered, I.e. I feel like I’m being looked down on when I ask questions about customers, market, etc, because that’s what consulting has drilled into me, when the interview ends up as a standard market sizing case. I know it’s 90% knowing the game, but I feel like I’m undercutting myself if I don’t treat the case like an actual project.
