Internship Interview

Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Monitor Group (Cambridge, MA) in February 2011.

Interview

1 hour interview. They give you a case study based off of one the company has actually done and you have one analytical (math) question and two more holistic ones. You get a really crappy elementary school calculator and a lot of information- more than you can process in 15 min. They come back in and ask you to walk through your thinking- I got the sense that it was about whether the numbers were close, but behind that, really whether your methodology was right and how you approached the question. How do you view the market, why do you see this firm as a competitor and this firm as not one? Etc etc.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Monitor Group (Chicago, IL) in February 2010.

    Interview

    First round interview is one hour. You are given a written packet with 15 minutes to read through and answer a few questions. The interviewer then enters the room and questions you on the case. The final half hour is general behavioral and resume questions. The final round interview day consists of two interviews. The first interview is a group case exercise. You are brought to a conference room with 4 or 5 other prospectives and given a business case to read (30 minutes). Then, each person is given an individual problem to work on (30 minutes). A few interviewers enter the room, and observe each group member takes a turn leading a discussion around their individual problem. The goal of this exercise is to recreate a case team environment. This is followed by a 45 minute break, and an individual feedback interview.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Monitor Group.

    Interview

    Monitor is unique in that its interview consists of a "paper case". The interviewer gives the interviewee a packet of about 6 pages of texts and 8 exhibits, and there are 3 questions to answer. The questions are similar to a normal case interview, but the interviewer leaves the room and the returns 25 minutes later. The interviewee must be prepared to present the answers and walk the interviewer through the logic.

    Interview Questions

    • The only questions asked come from the lengthy paper case, besides one or two brief behavioral questions at the beginning.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Monitor Group (Singapore (Singapore)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Applicants go through 3 different interviews; 1 fit interview ( resume and background) and 2 case studies ( with a few fit interview questions as well). Case studies consisted of 10-15 pgs of text, graphs and 3 questions ( 1 quant, 2 qual) to be answered. Pharmaceutical and running shoe company were the two industries presented during my interview. Make sure you review all the graphs and text before interviewer enters room. Segmenting and searching for all the quantitative numbers needed to answer the question was the most difficult part in my opinion. Qualitative were reasonably straight forward, but be confident in your answers and presentation.
