I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Booz & Company.

Interview Details – 1st round, 2 case interviews: both had 10min of fit questions and 20min of case. One case had a lot of maths, the other was more qualitative (profit declining). Both interviewers were at manager level. They took a lot of time during the interview for a Q&A session

Philadelphia, PA

I applied online - interviewed at Booz & Company in September 2012.

Interview Details – Coming from a target school, I gained access through the online career website. There was a social the night before the interview. I got a first round which was composed of 2 30 minute interviews. The first 30 was only fit, the second a case.

Interview Question – The case was largely subjective - whether or not (assuming I did not get any job offers) I would want to go into lawn mowing or house painting next year and why.   Answer Question

The process took a day - interviewed at Booz & Company in October 2009.

Interview Details – Interivew was with three senior VP's and Partners, each interview lasting 45 minutes. Three case questions, very relaxed, almost felt too comfortable. Spent about 10 minutes each talking about background, fit, and general behavioral. Everyone was very friendly and professional, a function of Booz's culture I would imagine.
