    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Roland Berger.

    Interview Details

    Went through 5 rounds of interviews, 3 with senior consultants and 2 with partners, all through Skype as I was completing my studies abroad. Roland Berger SEA operates as a single firm with separate offices throughout SEA, so 2 interviews were performed by consultants based in Singapore. All interviewers were very bright and switched-on, gave me a good impression of what the expected level of performance is at Roland Berger.

    Senior consultant interviews were based heavily on technical skills and touched a little bit on people skills. Make sure you're well prepped quantitatively and qualitatively for anything they may throw at you. Partners were more interested in getting to know me as a person. So these interviews were a lot more conversational and non-technical, but do prepare for a case for these interviews as well just for precaution.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Roland Berger in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    After the application submission I was invited to take a test in the office. The test was pretty long with no calculators allowed. It involved basic math questions (substraction, multiplication etc.), which explains why you were not allowed to use calculators, inductive reasoning questions (you're required to say which shape will be the next), some economics realted exrecises and so on.
    The next step was two interviews with company staff. In each interview there were 2 people in front of you. Interviews included bahvioral and case questions. In particular, I was aksed to do break-even analysis and estimate the market size. I could use calculators at this stage. There were also quite a lot of brain-teasers.

    I applied online – interviewed at Roland Berger in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly standard, there were some tests sat in the office followed by two first round interviews, followed by two second round interviews. All interview too the same format - a discussion of my cv followed by a case study and then an oppertunity to ask questions. All of the questions were fairly standard and the case studies were managable.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.
