Consultant Interview

Consultant

I applied online and 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 Question – No surprises.   Answer Question

Associate Consultant Interview

Associate Consultant

Interviewed at Boston Consulting Group

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 Question – 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
