    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Analytics (Mumbai (India)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    1st Round- A telephonic Interview where I was asked to assess the total revenue of McDonalds in India.
    The Interviewer was very rational and his assessment criteria was based on how I derived on the final figure, assumptions made to arrive at the final revenue figure

    2nd Round - A face to face interview. It was the most unexpected and a very casual interview where the interviewer looked very uninterested and kept working on his laptop all the while - giving an impression that he was not interested/ or bothered to listening to me through out the interview. He came across as the most non creative interviewer as well, where he asked me to solve a case study (Not himself sure what a case study is because he did not provide me nay material or data to create a hypothesis). he asked me to derive the number of economic times copy in India (considering he saw me reading economic times at the reception when he said hi to me). Second so called case study was to assess the number of office chairs sold in India (Again because we were sitting on one of those). I solved both the case studies and clearly explained the assumptions made in both the case studies (which I assume he did not understand because he was working on his laptop, sharing no eye contact, at times asking me sorry I missed what you said).

    The Interviewer looked very casual and was not professional or serious about his job as an interviewer. His questions were not specific about the numbers that I had assumed which showed lack of clarity on the so called case study he had given to me and also the lack of understanding of constraints of a case study like this.

    After sitting in front of the interviewer and talking to thin air, I realised that the culture of the company was very casual. The Interviewers attitude reflected that the employees were not very professional and took upon any task given to them (in this case, that of Interviewing) without any proper assessment approach evident by lack of any documentation done during the interview. The interviewer depended largely on his gut instincts and failed to come across as a manager with a clear agenda. Though he topped the chart in being over confident, unprofessional and a bit cocky as well.

    Interview Questions

    • There was nothing in the interview that was difficult. If you understand the case based interview you will be able to nail it. Only if you have an interviewer who listens to you and communicates to you with clear agenda. I still believe that most of the interviewers are not like that and you should assume that the interviewer is there to help you.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Boston Analytics (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in January 2016.

    Multi step process with strong hiring criteria and structured interview process. It starts with HR call, followed up by telephonic round with manager, in person interview by manager, VP and CXO. The hiring is typical of consulting firm with case study question, client handling ability, psychometric test and knowledge test. Overall you can expect a thorough evaluation of skill sets and interest level check. Show your desperation to join the firm and they are equally desperate to take you.
