    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Düsseldorf (Germany)

    (Translated from English)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

    Interview Details

    Die Kommunikation mit der Personalabteilung war sehr effizient und äußerst freundlich.

    Die erste Runde der Vorstellungsgespräche war wie beschrieben. 2 Gespräche mit Fällen. Die Interviewer waren sehr freundlich. Die Fälle waren nicht schwierig, aber die Zeit war sehr begrenzt. Der Online-Fall war nicht so numerisch, sondern er ging eher um Geschäftssinn und Logik.

    Die zweite Runde besteht aus drei Gesprächen mit Fällen, und sie sind schwieriger. Die Eignung zur Firma ist der wichtigere Teil, nehme ich an.

    BCG rief mit ganz gutem Feedback nachher an.

    Communication with HR was very efficient and extremely friendly.
    Interview 1st round was as described. 2 interviews with cases. The interviewer were very friendly. Cases weren't tough, but time was very limited. Online case was less numerical but more about business sense and logic.
    2nd round is three interviews with cases and more difficult. Fit to company is the more important part, I assume.
    BCG called with really good feedback after.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

    Interview Details

    Cases were straightforward. The hardest part was just the pressure of being in the interview setting. I will say that the cases really fly by when you're in the actual interview. I felt like I'd barely gotten started and hadn't really figured anything out before I had to make a recommendation!

    Interview Details

    Had an on-campus first round interview. 2 interviewers, each of whom spent about 10-15 minutes on fit and 30 on cases. The cases were pretty standard, maybe more data intensive than Bain's. They seemed to want me to crunch numbers rather than think outside the box.

    Interview Questions
    • Name a leader who you think is successful and explain what specifically they do that makes them so effective. Not difficult, but it just threw me because I wasn't expecting it.   Answer Question
