Project Leader Interview

Project Leader
Delhi (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in April 2010.

Interview Details – 4-5 interviews including HR and final offer. You go ahead only if the previous one is successful. Very consistent interview process across different interviewers. Mostly case based - 2 cases per interview is a minimum. The cases are usually a stripped down version of a real life case example that the person must have gone through.
