    Consultant II Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Roland Berger in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had one on-campus interview, which was a standard case study with no particular emphasis on fit questions. I was passed to second round at the office of my preference: here I had one fit interview, then a "business knowledge" interview and finally a written case. The fit interview was quite standard, the business knowledge was an engaging discussion about the "state of the art" of the specific industry which will be your focus once hired. The written case involved going through some slides and prepare a presentation about a problem for a client. It is important to prioritize the analysis in that case. Overall, it was not a hard interview, but the interviewers were a bit unprofessional - speaking in German to each other while I was a non-German speaker interviewing at an office in North America.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Roland Berger in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting, interview process went smoothly. 1 45 min case and behavioral. The interviewer was friendly and engaged the entire time. Helps move you along if you get stuck on the case. I received a phone call after the weekend with some feedback on how I did, which is very helpful. Unfortunately, it came down to a fit situation, and I did not move on in the process.

    Interview Details

    Really nice company. Interviewers really interesting and pleasant. 2 interviews and a GMAT style test. Test is straightforward - maths simple but time is tight - easier than MBB. Usual competency questions - not a huge amount of them. Most of the time spent on market sizing question and short case in second interview. Obviously structure is key so main focus would be making sure you can structure a market sizing appropriately.
