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

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+ monthsinterviewed 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

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Roland Berger in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Sent in an online application. Heard back 6 weeks later and HR scheduled for initial interview fit + case with consultant. Interviewer (consultant) has simillar background and interest to me. Case was on investigating declining profitaility for retail chain and recomending strategy to bring it back to black.

    Heard back from HR on the day itself, and progressed to a 2nd round with a manager. Again, he had a simillar background to mine. I listed that I know a foreign language on my resume so part of the fit intervew was done in that language. Simillar format to the first, market sizing and marketing case on Auto industry.

    Third round was with a principal, simillar format. Case was on Market entry for a financial services agency.

    Fourth round was with the country managing partner himself. The interview only lasted 30 mins as he has an urgent meeting to run to. Fit interviews were different, a lot of questions about friends, family, where I grew up, school I went to etc.. Case was on an urban development strategy.

    Fifth and final round was a face to face fit interview with the regional managing partner. More of a formality, 2 way conversation. I found him very friendly and approachable. Received an offer 2 days later, and accepted it.

    Roland Berger looks for people with ambitions, stuff that makes them stands out. They look for passion and a drive for entreprenurship. As with general consulting, dont BS in interviews, lay out all assumptions and think out loud.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Roland Berger in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two telephonic interviews during first round. First interviewer was quite precise in his 'fit' questions. Second interviewer asked more or less general questions about why consulting, RB etc.
    Cases were okay too.
    First was about a market entry of a rental-car company in the rental-car market of UAE. So find the market size (in terms of cars)
    Second was about a water bottle shop and it s P&L Statement. Quite easy infact. (or so l thought!)
