Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

Interview

Fit interview + 2 cases. Everything was professional and structured how they tell you in pre-interview preparation. I had multiple contacts outside of the interview and everyone was incredibly kind. When you arrive, you receive a name tag and are sat in a waiting area. Your first interviewer will get you, you spend about 15 minutes on a fit interview then 25-30 minutes doing a case. You then return to your seating area and what I described is repeated with a second interviewer. You get a call within a few weeks to find out if you received a second interview.

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Philadelphia, PA (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    First round
    Two interview, both were friendly and polite
    Asked about recent news that interest me, focused on team and leadership fit question.
    Two cases-1 from public sector (which I totally flunked) and the other airline (which was fairly easier).
    Not too maths heavy but public sector one didnt make much sense to me. I recommend you practice one or two public sector cases.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in October 2019.

    Interview

    It was 2 online interviews with a principal and an engagement manager. The difficulty was average.
    The scheduling itself was terrible - I was warned about the interview 2 days before the actual date without an option to reschedule. I also got multiple emails that contradicted each other in terms of dates and types of interview.

    Interviewed at Chicago Office. Behavioral and two cases. The HRs were nice and helpful. One interviewer was one of my alum and was nice. The second interviewer might be stress testing me, and I did not do well on that case.

    First round interview, consisted of two 45-minute interviews with consultants at the firm. Cases were fairly straightforward, exhibits were a little tricky. HR questions were very typical "why consulting, why BCG".

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Philadelphia, PA (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    First-round interview. Interviewed with two interviewers for 45min each (15 min for behavioral questions, 30 min for case interview, and 5 min Q&A ). The first one went very well, but the second one did not - mostly because I did not do the math well. There were a lot of math like 11B*0.32% and that drove me crazy and made me much more nervous.
