Did anyone who did a screener last week get a CB yet?

Does anyone have an idea of what the turnaround time would be for CB?

I meant screener to CB. I'm not sure any CBs have happened yet.

I got the sense it would take a week or so, although a poster above claims they were told it wud be a while. Do we have an idea of the rough stats they r looking for?

I also got the sense that it would take around a week or so, based on the idea that they were doing the phone screeners to see if people were interested/would be a good match. I wouldn't guess it would take long to weed through people in that sense. Then maybe the actual CB, CB to offer time would be longer. I don't think they're even sure what they're looking for. I'm at a lower T-14, top 30-40% and my screener said I had great grades. Maybe he was just being nice, but I got the sense that they weren't super picky grade-wise, but maybe interest/other experience mattered more. I have no idea how many summers they're even looking for (I'm not sure they know either).

Any luck for anyone who mass mailed, or have only the resume collect people heard back?

Got an invite this week for an in office interview. They haven't gotten back to me with an exact date yet, but looking like the end of October, possibly going into Nov. Not sure if they're just taking their time or if they're doing a bunch of them and earlier dates filled up.

Was this a screener or callback? Also, was this part of a prior development (10/1 email, phone screener)?

Quoted poster here. This was the result of a 10/1 email, then a 20 minute phone interview the first week of October, then an email about a week later inviting me to come into the office- sometime toward the end of Oct.

I had a similar experience. Any idea if this interview in Oct./Nov. is a callback or a second screener?

I assumed CB, but not sure what they're process is. I'm curious if anyone has any idea how many people they're bringing in/how many they're looking to hire.

Not yet. Got pushed back due to hurricane sandy. Do you have any idea of a timeline for their hiring? Or how many people they're bringing in?

Their hiring seems like it is up in the air, meaning it could take weeks or months. I am not 100 percent sure, but I had the impression that several other people were in for interviews the day I was there and that they were expecting to bring in one or two SA's. I had a phone screener and then a longer screener in office and was told that step 3 was a case study and interview with partners and then a review by the hiring team.

Very hard to get a read on what they are looking for. Best of luck.

Just wanted to confirm that they have a three step process rather than a 2 step like most US firms?

They were still accepting resumes at my school on 11/28. Has anyone (or anyone you know) progressed any further in the interview process or received an offer from HSF?
