    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

    I got almost no fit questions, we went directly to the case studies. The case was invented on the spot but required a certain solution that I could not get.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Roland Berger in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 rounds of interview. Both were with Senior Consultants. The interviewers were friendly overall and tried to guide me along when there were difficulties.

    First Interview included some fit/experience questions as well as why consulting and why Roland Berger. The Case Interview began with some brain teasers and a market sizing question. Case was an entering the new market case. Challenging as geographical setting of the case was in a region I was extremely unfamiliar with.

    Second interview pretty much followed the format of the first. Case was also entering market with focus on market segmentation and market size estimate.

    The case scenarios appeared to be "invented" on the go, with the interviewers trying to put you in a difficult spot and out of comfort zone as much as possible, adding to the challenge.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult question centre on making estimations and assumptions on the region/industry which I have little prior knowledge about.   Answer Question

    Hard in house test, and important to have a good cover letter. Found interviewers very friendly and helpful but the case study questions were harder than many I have encountered.

    Summer Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Roland Berger in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interviews were scheduled efficiently and smoothly. The interviewers for the first round (consultants/project manager) were very friendly. The partner interviews were very different, however. The cases themselves were easy, but they were discouraging and allowed no room for creativity. Post-interview experience was negative, as HR and interviewers do not bother replying to emails or providing feedback at all.
