Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Roland Berger in May 2013.

Interview Details – Contact is easiest through personal friends and getting in contact with an HR. It is possible to intern here simply by knowing someone but more benefits happen if you first know the HR.

Interview Question – What specifically do you expect to contribute and learn?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was a quick negotiation with a direct mention that there would be no stipend.

Intern Interview

Intern
Munich (Germany)

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Roland Berger in May 2011.

Interview Details – Talent Pool: I attended a campus event and was afterwards contacted by an alumni from my university who encouraged me to apply for an internship. They then put me into the talent pool (fast track).

Application process: When I decided to apply I only sent my application material (cover letter, CV etc.) to the HR referring to talent pool and my RB contact.
I was then invited for an interview.

Interview process: I had three interviews with three consultants that interviewed all people present on that interview day. It was only 4-5 people.
The first interview was essentially a CV and personality based interview whereas the latter two were case studies. It went OK, but I did not expect to get an offer. However, I was surprised to receive the offer. I then had the opportunity to immediately choose which competence centre to join.

Easy Interview

Intern Interview

Intern
Warsaw (Poland)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Roland Berger in September 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was supposed to consist of three 1:1 rounds with senior consultants. However, one of the designated interviewers could not make it in time, so the process was slashed to two interviews. The cases were quite easy, and standard - declining profits and market entry. Fit questions were a little tricky, sort of, what would you expect to go badly with your internship, what value will you bring to senior staff and clients with no prior industry experience, and so on. Overall, I would say the interview was quite easy, but it left me with mixed feelings regarding my prospects of joining the firm, and the firm itself.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Roland Berger in April 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was overall a good experience. In my first round, I met 2 consultants which were really nice and asked me one valuation case and one enter a new market case. In my second round, I had to give a presentation. The questions they asked were pretty tough. I would definitely recommend everyone interested in management consulting to interview with this company.
