    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend, so I sent in my resume and got contacted back shortly thereafter. I had a phone interview with the Administrative Services Manager and was asked to go in for 3 back-to-back-to-back interviews the next week. The in-person interviews were with two Executive Assistants and the HR Manager. It was a very smooth and efficient process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    First, an email to request and phone interview. Then if all goes well an in-person interview with the broader team and HR member. I met with three team members and one HR consultant.

    Interview Questions

    • Everyone had the same questions because they read it off of a sheet that HR printed out for them. It was repetitive and insincere.   1 Answer

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in May 2009.

    Interview

    I was brought in by an outside recruiter. I met with two human resources professionals in the office. They generallly asked me questions about my experience and how I worked with changing deadlines, technology, etc. They described the practice areas for each of the partners (2) that would be supported in the position. One important distinction to note is that Administrative Assistants work with analysts and consultants while Executive Assistants only support Partners.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (London, England (UK)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    2 interviewers both asking questions, competency based and quite basic. Little reaction or conversation from either. Lasted about 45 mins, and seemed to go well although no offer was made. Feedback wasn't given, so overall unhelpful process

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in June 2010.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume the HR representative called me to schedule an interview. I went to their office and met with HR and the hiring manager. They were very professional and the interview went well but they chose to make an offer to someone with less experience. BCGs pay scale for support staff is lower than most consulting firms.
