I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in September 2010.

Interview Details – 3 rounds of interviews @ 2 interviewers each

Interview split into 3 parts: behavioral interview, case interview and Q&A

They get back to you very quickly after each interview and give you feedback on what to improve for the next interview

Interviews get easier the further you go along (the first was the toughest!)

Interview Question – Case interview... no unexpected cases just be prepared to think beyond the obvious   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation was possible

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

Interview Details – Except one person, all the people met during the interview process were clear in exposing the case and going throught it step by step.
The process is very long and was as follows :
Round 1: Internet based test to test your analytical skills + a case study
Round 2 : "Basket case" asking you to answer 4 questions (via written slides) + 2 case studies
Round 3 : 2 case studies

Interview Question – Questions about motivations to join BCG and not other consulting companies. You need some insight informations about the office you are applying to.   Answer Question
