    Knowledge Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I heard back from the Bain team within 8-9 days of applying. The entire application process was quite smoothly organized. On reaching the office for the interview, I was given a case study with some minor errors, I had to point them out and correct them. After this test, I had a 1v1 round with a Bain Knowledge Specialist. Questions asked were very generic and mostly covered what did I do in my previous job and why do I want to join Bain in this role. I was asked one guesstimate question. The interviewer was very polite and helpful throughout the interview.
    After this round, I heard that they will not be moving forward with my application.

    My suggestion: Don't go expecting too much from this role, it's mostly editing presentations for Bain's Knowledge Management. But still, if you get an offer to interview for this role, please clarify with the HR/Interviewer what the role is about. They are very transparent in answering that and set no false expectations.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Zürich (Switzerland)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Zürich (Switzerland)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Für die Bewerbung im Zürcher Office wurden für ein Interview von 8.30 h bis 11.30h 7 Kandidaten eingeladen, davon 30% nicht-Bwler. Nach einer kurzen Intro, erhielten wir 2 Interviews von jeweils 45 min, 10 min cultural fit, 30 min case. Danach gab es noch einen kurzen Brunch und einzel Feedback.

    Interview Questions

    • Cultural Fit: Wieso Bain? In welcher Situation haben Sie ein Team geleitet?
      Case Fragen: 1) Due Diligence eines spezialisierten Papierherstellers (Papier wird vor allem für den Druck von Banknoten genutzt). Das wichtige war, dass der Weltmarkt für Banknotenherstellung zweigeteilt ist und diese sich unterschiedlich entwickeln. China/Indien/Afrika vs. USA/EU... + Das Geld vielleicht in 15-20 Jahren digitalisiert ist und es somit keine Papiernoten mehr gibt...
      2) Growth Strategy für die Gelben Seiten in einer digitalisierten Welt. Hier wäre die Lösung gewesen zu akzeptieren, dass das konventionelle Geschäftsmodel nicht mehr gerettet werden kann. Also sich auf eine neue und jüngere Zielgruppe konzentrieren und das Angebot/Pricing Model anzupassen.   Answer Question
