Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in January 2017.

Interview

First step was two interactive case interviews including professional experience discussion. Also an online test. Second round was a presentation case of about two hours. Third round was two case interviews with partners, also kind of interactive cases but a bit more out of the box. This also included motivation for working at BCG and personal professional experience discussions.

    Interview

    I applied for summer internship through company's website. The process took 3 weeks, then I was contacted by phone and invited to sit for BCG Potential Test, which was held at company's office. It was obligatory to use company's computers to complete the test. During the test my computer that I was given died and I lost significant amount of time, hence I had 30sec for the last 3 questions, which is nonsense.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Sydney (Australia)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was quick and included an introduction to case interviews workshop that allowed applicants to meet current employees. The HR team were very helpful but the interviewer feedback wasn't particularity helpful and sometimes ambiguous. Cases were left very open but the interviewers helped guide you to a certain extent. Overall I didn't have a bad experience but it could have been better.
