Düsseldorf (Germany)

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in August 2013.

Interview Details – I got an invitation to an interview only one day after my application. I had to do a computer test (which was doable) and two interviews. The case studies were also not very difficult, but the interviewers gave very little feedback during the interview on how I was doing. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the HR staff is very concerned about the applicants.

Interview Question – Standard questions like "why did you study x" "why do you want to work with us".   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Consultant Interview

Consultant
Düsseldorf (Germany)

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in January 2011.

Interview Details – I got an invitation for a job interview through participation in a workshop. Interview process consisted of 2 interview rounds on two different days.
First round: introductory presentation of the firm, two 1to 1 interviews. Personal fit questions, and case in each. Impression: positive, the interviewer were friendly and supportive. Cases were not difficult. First firm trading steel tries to reduce the cost - the answer more or less to reduce administration cost. Second case: supply chain track production was taking more days than the competetive firm. The answer - the orders for the suppliers were sent too late.

Second round much more aggressive and less friendly. X-Ray personal fit questions, much harder cases. the interviewer were not that supportive anymore. 4 Interviews: first one included only personal fit. In other three much harder cases. much less initial information and almost no support from the interviewers. First case - Beton production in Germany - market size for a new beton type. Second case two action houses - compare the trade figures and question whether to exclude the items under 5 euros from the inside-trade.
Third case - opera and opportunity to reduce cost - increase sales.

Interview Question – Should the company produce a new type of concrete for German market? This type is characterized by flat and smooth surface without any additional polishing but can be produced at 20% additional cost.   View Answer
