    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Monitor Group in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to Monitor by a friend who already worked there at the time. Based on his reference, a first round of interview was conducted at the Nariman Point Office by the head of HR at the time - Naina Batra. She was a pleasant person, yet in-control. The office had a nice, relaxed feel to it which, compared to the services organization I already worked with, was a stark difference. I was not made to wait for too long.

    The interview was conversational. She asked me why I wanted to work with the firm and I gave her my reasons for shifting. She also asked me where I saw myself in the firm in a short time from then.

    This was followed by a telephonic case round with one of the consultants. She gave me a case to solve - a problem with a hospital and estimating the number of beds in this particular hospital that was being set up in a developing country. At all points, she was cooperative. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do particularly well on the interview, and the feedback process she employed told me as much.

    Interview Questions
    • There was no unexpected question as such, nothing away from the standard list of HR questions and case-related questions that you'd ask. The interviewers never tried to trip you up.   Answer Question

    I was given a standard case and it was industry specific. It was neither too difficult or too easy, but you can expect that your interviewer is expecting perfection in your delivery and thought process if your going to make it through to the final round.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – 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!

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Monitor Group in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.
