Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

Interview

There were 5 interviews total: 2 phone, 2 video and 1 in person. Very basic interview questions, super relaxed. During the last interview the manager seemed very uninterested a little unprofessional but everyone else, including him was extremely pleasant to speak with. When they say "we will reach out in a couple of days," expect at least a week.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Atlanta, GA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I completed a phone interview, but wasn't offered any additional interviews. I was told that if the hiring manager wanted to continue further with me, there would be two video interviews to follow and I would assume a face-to-face interview later. I was told a decision would be made the following business day after my initial phone interview, which is accurate. The interviewer made me feel comfortable and it was much more like a conversation than a Q & A interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Atlanta, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I started with a preliminary phone interview to learn more about the company, the role, benefits and compensation. There were a few interview questions during this call but they were the standard "tell me about yourself" questions. I then had two back to back video interviews using a web conference software. The questions were much more detailed for this round. The final stage was in-person interview and that one was surprisingly easy too. It was much more conversational than I expected it to be!
    All four interviews were super pleasant! Each interviewer was extremely kind, professional and informative. The total process between phone interview to offer letter took two weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Atlanta, GA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very short. I had a telephone interview for this position at the Atlanta office. I got the phone call at the appointed time and the interviewer asked to tell her a little bit about myself and my accomplishments in about 3-4 minutes. After this she asked about my job experience and told me that she would forward my file to the hiring manager and they would contact me in a few days about their decision on whether or not I would continue in the interview process. The interviewer was friendly and made me feel very comfortable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had applied through their website and then got a call the next day to set up two video conference interviews for the next week. Those went well and I was invited to meet the supervisor over the administrative assistant's the next week. The interview went well and I was told to expect a decision in the next few days. I met with him on a Tuesday, and still have not heard anything back almost 4 weeks later. This was around the holidays so I understand people being out and catching up, but this is ridiculous to not hear anything back from such a reputable company. I am disappointed that I do not have any closure on this job as I did highly respect the company and its reputation.

They are very quick at getting back to you after the interviews with results. Expect a ton of scenario questions and having to explain your past work experiences in depth.

    Interview

    I applied online, had a phone interview, and two subsequent video interviews. They were lengthy and were with 3 different hiring managers. They seem very stoic and uninterested in what you're saying and more how you say it.
