Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Booz & Company.

Interview

Hiring and interviews were a very long process - it took 4 months in all. I went thorugh about 7 interviews, all were behavioral in nature and did not have any case components which was shocking to me as I was expecting tough case questions throughout the process. The recruiter I worked with was very nice but she was not always as responsive as I would have liked, especially in a 4-month process.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Booz & Company (North Chicago, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was referred as an "experienced hire" by a friend and I ended up interviewing for two service lines. The first group I applied to never responded, but I found another job listing for a different group and asked the recruiter if she would forward me to the lead. That started a 3-month process which included 8 total interviews (national recruiter, local recruiter, two phone interviews, four in-person). In all I was given 4 cases; one focused on reorganizing the Finance function, one focused on basic business algebra, one focused on client management (role playing), and one focused on strategic problem solving. All-in-all, the process was very thorough, friendly and engaging. I prepared more for these interviews than any other in my life, and that paid off. I think what helped me the most was consciously keeping my answers very clear and short.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Booz & Company (Chicago, IL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I applied on line in Nov. 2013. The process took 3 months. A couple of weeks later I got an email from a recruiter to set-up a phone screen. The phone screen was basic information on Booz and behavioral questions for me and how my skill set would fit for this opportunity. I passed the screening and had a phone interview with a principal that lasted about 50 minutes. I then had a phone interview with a senior associate that lasted 45 minutes. I was then invited to interview face to face a day long process. I had three face to face interviews with two principals and one senior associate. Mostly behavioral question and two case studies. Overall the interviewers were very laid back and friendly to chat with. The case studies were regular cases if you are use to doing case studies you will do find. I interviewed in person the third Friday in Jan. Got feedback back that following Tuesday informing me that they would like to put an offer together for me. Got an offer a weeks later. After negotiations accepted the position the following week.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the ordinary pretty straight forward. Which I liked. How can your skills set help Booz if you are selected for this position? What value would you bring?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a higher salary it took a week to get an offer back because of approvals that were needed. It was what I asked for with an additional incentive.
