    Interview

    Challenging interview process. First step is a multiple choice logical test and business case. The second step consisted in two interviews with senior consultants. Questions about entering food retailing market from scratch and turnaround business case in insurance sector. Portfolio mix and segmenting revenues, costs and earnings evaluations. Very fast case discussions. Velocity, business sense and hypothesis validation are requested.

    Difficult Interview

    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

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Applied through a contact who put me in touch with the recruiter. First they said 6-8 weeks but since I had another offer from a strategy consulting firm soon after, they were fantastic in expediting the process.
    First phone screen with a HR
    Then, phone interview with as principal. Included fit question, industry specific questions and mini-case to see how I structure a problem.
    Final round was in the office with 3 partners. All interviews had a component of fit, problem structure and innovative thinking (thinking on your feet) to general industry problem.

    Very impressive people! Fantastic interview process! good compensation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Booz & Company.

    Interview

    Hiring and interviews were a very long process - it took 4 months in all. I went thorugh about 7 interviews, all were behavioral in nature and did not have any case components which was shocking to me as I was expecting tough case questions throughout the process. The recruiter I worked with was very nice but she was not always as responsive as I would have liked, especially in a 4-month process.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Booz & Company.

    Interview

    Absolutely phenomenal interview process. The recruiter worked very hard to make sure I was prepared for my 5 rounds of interviews with 9 people. While the process did take a little longer than I had hoped it was the best interviewing process I have ever been through. I even had the Global VP and Senior Partner personally e-mail me to say congratulations.
