Junior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
Application Details

I interviewed 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.

    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.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Roland Berger in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very good communication. First interview with HR Specialist, who was very friendly but maintained her professional level. Topics: picking 5 achievements from resume, talking about the company.

    Second interview with consultant, case study about insurance company entering CEE market. As for the first case interview in my case, it went well, we reached the conclusion, couple of mistakes.

    Junior Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Roland Berger in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    First round: numerical and reasoning test, GMAT-like, 30 minutes long. Then two 1-hour one-to-one interviews with classic questions + a classic business case, no brainteasers.
    Second round: two 1 hour one-to-one interviews with senior levels, much tougher.

    Interview Questions
    • The Partner is aggressive and insulting as soon as you don't get something right at the first attempt. You can't actually try to explain yourself, you can only complete his sentences with few words or he'll stop you and "threaten" you   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed 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!)
