Interview

I attended a Businnes and company presentation on campus, then mailed one of the speaker so I managed to have my cv to be checked as soon as possible. After the green light for the cv screening I was invited to the first round interview. Two 1v1 case interview and 1 interactive case at pc. After 1 week I got the news that I passed the first step so I got invited to a second and last round, again 2 1v1 interviews on cases (harder than before) and one last 1v1 with the hr manager.

    I applied online – interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

    Interview

    Applied online, got call inviting me to the office for a first round interview. Had two case interviews: first one went great, but bombed the second one. Both interviewers were relatively senior employees, but were nice, although you could tell they had other things to do. Asked lots of questions, made BCG seem great to work for.

    Interview

    Application submission through school website and BCG website. They contacted me for a first-round interview, and informed me that a second-round interview would happen one week after that. For the final interview, the would fly me to their office for a formal interview. I only made it to the first round interview, but both interviewers were very nice and understand the situation I was in.

    Interview

    Submitted resume and cover letter, then received a first round interview that took place at their headquarters. The interview consisted of two 30-40 minute cases with two different interviewers. Both case interviews included 5-10 minutes of general questions about my resume and past experience as well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Boston Consulting Group in February 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online for an intern position. Received an invitation for first round interviews through email. Sat a BCG aptitude test. Lots of mental maths. 40 questions in 20 minutes. Not as time challenging as some SHL ones. Interview consists of two 1:1 ones. 5 minutes on fit and then the remaining 40 minutes on case. Some interviewers were obviously nicer than others.
