I applied through college or university and 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.

Summer Intern Interview

Summer Intern
London, England (UK)

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – Had to accept a wrong fact from the interviewer   Answer Question
