Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (New York, NY) in April 2015.

Interview

Got first phone interview from a recruiter. After the phone interview, they choose if they want to bring you back in. I spoke with a young HR girl. All questions were very situational and hard. You had to think of specific times from work and provide examples.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

    Interview

    Started with a great phone interview/screen. Was then asked back for a 1 on 1 interview. Was not impressed with the manager I met with. Perhaps it was the day or time, but you could tell they were interested in getting along with their day and leaving the office more than finding out anything about me. Might have just been a difference in attitude but was expecting decorum from such a high ranking company.

    • What do you dislike most about your job. (Was later critiqued for sounding negative about my current position.)   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Called to discuss resume over the phone. Didn't hear back for a week, when they left another message saying they wanted to follow up with the position and our discussion from the previous week. I made several attempts to reach out and talk with the HR woman, finally a week later, I received a voice message stating they had gone in a different direction and thanked me for my time.

    Interview Questions

    • Just asked briefly about my resume. They highlighted the position more than they inquired about my experience, background, skills, etc. Very short phone discussion.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Everyone is very friendly but the interviews are very thorough. Be prepared to answer a lot of questions about yourself. The questions are more abstract and not direct about what you do specifically at your current job.
