    Interview

    Really important to network beforehand. Very hard to secure an interview without getting to know the people in the office you want to work in. The interview is devided into 2 parts: fit, and case. The fit part should be about 10-15 minutes. You will need to walk the consultant through your resume, and answer question about your background. The case is a straight up consulting case.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Austin, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Informal chat at a cafe, one analyst shared his experience and answered any questions we raised about working opportunity in BCG. It is very informal and comfortable. This may help candidate know better than giving a presentation alone.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Bethesda, MD) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I interviewed on campus in the first rounds and wasn't called back. Interviews were all business case oriented. Interviewer were friendly and took me through a wireless phone pricing case. The case didn't seem that difficult--- I screwed up some of the math and I pretty much knew my goose was cooked.

    • Case was wireless phone pricing. How much should you charge for a family plan?   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in February 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was based on 2 cases and personal experience. The cases were good, they were looking for structured thinking and clarity of thoughts. Suggestions, take a minute before starting the analysis. Answer in bullet points and concisely. Keep talking to the interviewer to give him a chance to help you. For the personal experience part, keep some story ready related to team work and leadership.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Boston, MA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Nice interviewers - they were very professional and helpful throughout the process, and even took the time to give me feedback over the phone after I did not receive an offer. It seemed very casual, deceptively so. One was particularly laid back during the case portion of the interview - he told me I wouldn't need to take notes (I did, however).

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Dallas, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    First interview was at career center on campus. It was pretty calm, two simple case interviews to figure out how you think and to try to get you to solve basic problems. There's a bit of math prodding in the middle of the interview, but besides that they're pretty straight forward if you've done a few cases from any sort of prep book.

    Second Interview was onsite in Texas. Three partners, each with an hour long meeting and this time, they're much more interested in how you think in terms of strategy than they are in your simple ability to solve math problems.

    Interview Questions

    • Case was about a company that had a line of restaurants, and they were looking to open another chain in Texas in an area that was already saturated with very similar restaurants. Why should they do it, why shouldn't they -- what's to be considered?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I wanted to work for a startup and I went through the consulting interview process as a backup.
