    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Boston, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Asked a lot of behavioral questions to get a better idea if I was compatible to work in their work environment. Have millions of qualified applicants but need to find the BCG fit and thats what they try to look for in interviews.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

    Interview

    Applied through my university, then had several back to back interviews for both fit and a case. I got one relatively standard case, but also one that threw me for a loop with the estimation required, though I believe it was intended to also see how well I adapted to less standard ideas. Overall though, the process was pretty standard.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Boston, MA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Very interesting: they called me right after my application to come by for interview. Just prepared myself a bit with case in point, after all they don't want you to use a predefined framework, they want you to create a framework on the spot. The first round was rather hard, while the in basket case in the second round wasn't too hard. Btw, you always need some luck to survive :)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Madrid (Spain)).

    Interview

    It took forever. Between sending the CV and being accepted and getting the first interview took 3 months. It was not very well organized, the HR department I mean. The inteview itself was great, both the ontervieweres were very friendly and nice, i was nervous but as soon as we started the fit interview it was completely ok. It was enjoyable. the whole experience was enjoyable. I am still waiting for an answer but I have a feeling I ll get it. Best of luck for the ones making it.
