I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group

Interview

Online test: Asked sequential questions (w/ exhibits) by a chat bot about a randomised online case on a particular industry/client and then had to record a 1-minute video delivering my recommendation to the client. Important to take note of case details as this was requested for the recording. Questions were ambiguous and it was difficult to know how you were performing. 1st round interviews: Two Zoom interviews with Principal/Partner. Limited time for behavioural questions due to interviews running over. Standard consulting style cases; one more of a discussion with some brainstorming, and the other more traditional with a defined outcome to work towards. 2nd round interviews: Two Zoom interviews with a Partner/MDP. Short time for behavioural questions due to interviews running over. Most of the interview focused on case, both traditional cases with exhibits.

Interview Questions
  • Behavioural: Was asked about why consulting, specific periods of my employment history, what I would bring to the organisation, etc. Case topics: budget decision, bank card payments, investment decision, and airline operations

It was not fun to do the personality test required, I did not enjoy this part. The interview was intimidating and difficult. I do not recommend this in the slightest.
