Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Atlanta, GA) in January 2020.

Interview

Staff was friendly and information was provided about interviewers upon arrival. Associates greeted us. One of my interviewers was almost 30 minutes late and the front desk left before validating my parking - logistics could have been smoother. Feedback was not given if don't progress through next round, even though they pride themselves on feedback culture.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Main application submission, first round case interview, final round case interview. I only got to the first round interview and didn't get the final round. The first round was two case interviews back-to-back. The cases themselves were okay, not too challenging nor too easy. Having them back to back was what made it difficult.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I only did the first round interview with two consultants. I think they gave interviews about a project that they worked on. Nevertheless, I was surprised to find out that the two interviewers had different standards. In my feedback, one interviewer said that my framework was very MECE and detailed, but the other interviewer said that my framework was too dense. I was somewhat confused. Nevertheless, still gained some experience in real interviews.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Detroit, MI) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Two case study interviews in the first round with Manager-level employees. If you impress them in the first round, you will be invited to perform another two case studies for Patner-level employees. In between the two rounds, HR will give you feedback on how to improve your interviews. Make sure you pay attention to the feedback that they give you, if you repeat mistakes they are unlikely to offer you a position.
