Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

Interview

I applied through an employee referral. The process was 1 phone, 2 video, and 1 in person. Everyone was very welcoming and easy to talk to, which made it easy to develop a rapport with the interviewers and each interview felt more like a conversation than a Q and A. It took less than two weeks from the time I applied to the time of offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and heard back from HR within 2 weeks of applying. From that point forward the process took over a month, with a mix of phone, in-person, and WebEx interviews. Everything moved relatively quickly up until the end when I was told I would hear back with a final decision in a few days but did not end up hearing back for several weeks. Everyone was very pleasant and professional during all my interviews. When I was informed I did not receive the job I was encouraged to still apply to other BCG positions and again was treated very nicely.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Initial phone call first, then one on one interview, and then called back for a more relaxed getting to know you interview. Amazing experience even though I was denied. BCG is a fantastic company and anyone would be lucky to work there.

    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.
