Consultant Interview

Consultant

I applied through other source and interviewed at Monitor Group.

Interview Details – Had an initial phone interview which consisted of fit questions and a quick case (breakeven analysis and cost reduction brainstorming). A week later, had an in-person first round. There is barely enough time to read through the information and structure your first answer before the interviewer walks in. Prioritize!
