    Senior Associate Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Mars & Co in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Brief phone interview followed by a visit to the office where I had two interviews. Both interviews went reasonably well but was not extended an invite to final rounds. I was baffled to be honest, compared to interviews I had had with McKinsey and BCG this was a walk in the park

    Interview Questions
    • The cases were straight-forward. No behavioral questions were asked. I think trying to connect with the interviewers was fairly difficult because they were slightly awkward/nervous - couldn't tell.   Answer Question

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Interview Details

    Phone interview asking about interests and experience. Then flew down for two onsite interviews. Both of the interviews were briefly about my past experience and then short market-sizing questions. Nothing too difficult but I was not prepared for market sizing questions. They also wanted my notes after the interview...which I did not expect.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Mars & Co.

    Interview Details

    I was selected for a first round interview through my college. I liked Mars interviewers the most out of two other job interviews I had that day. I had two 30 min interviews. One was behavioral and case. The other one was just case interview. I didn't get to move on to the second round. I think it might've been because of how I did on the case interview--they were trying to confuse me.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Mars & Co.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted first over the phone and had an informal conversation about my interest in consulting and the company. Then I had a phone interview which included a brain teaser and was invited to the in-office final round interview afterward. The final round consisted of 2 one-on-one interviews with senior consultants (each with a case) and lunch with two consultants afterward.
