Average Interview

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.

    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.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It is a very conversational interview on the phone first. The recruiter is very nice to talk to. They want to get to know you better instead of talking directly about the position.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in May 2017.

    Interview

    The process is two phone interviews, two video interviews, and one in person interview. I made it through the first two. The ladies I spoke with were polite and easy to talk to.

    I was emailed the day after submitting my application (Tuesday) regarding my availability to interview within the next few days. I interviewed on that Friday and was contacted the following Tuesday for my next interview, which was scheduled for that Thursday. I was notified that I would not be proceeding within a few days.

    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.
