Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Booz & Company in October 2014.

Interview

Applied online through their website. Process took 10 weeks. Flew out for the first round interview itself. 2 standard 45 minute cases. Interviewer got back within a week and scheduled another interview 3 weeks after. Case interview but this time fit was also given equal importance. Final round was 10 days later - had a 1.5 hour interview - discussed a lengthy case. Be sure to have a clear answer as to why you want them more than McK, Bain, BCG. HR was very responsive and communicated next steps on time. Over all a good experience

Interview Questions

  • Standard case - I found the cases at the same level as the ones that BCG and Bain give (having interviewed with both). Be sure to be quick in your calculations, almost all the cases were heavily quantitative in nature. The interviewers spent a good amount of time talking about my interests, background and the usual behavioral questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Booz & Company in October 2009.

    Interview

    Interivew was with three senior VP's and Partners, each interview lasting 45 minutes. Three case questions, very relaxed, almost felt too comfortable. Spent about 10 minutes each talking about background, fit, and general behavioral. Everyone was very friendly and professional, a function of Booz's culture I would imagine.

    1st round, 2 case interviews: both had 10min of fit questions and 20min of case. One case had a lot of maths, the other was more qualitative (profit declining). Both interviewers were at manager level. They took a lot of time during the interview for a Q&A session
