Internship Interview

Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.

Interview

On campus recruitment from a top ‘feeder’ university. Hardest part is getting an interview with over 250+ applicants in school and only 20 interviews given, networking is of the essence. Two rounds of interviews. One on campus with project leaders, final rounds in office of offer with one principal and one partner. Both of first round consisted of case and fit. Second round consisted of a written case/fit interview and then a very relaxed brainstorming case and longer fit interview. Wonderful recruitment process!

    Interview

    Two interviews, really inspiring. They were preceeded by an analytical test. Each interview consisted on both general questions and a practical case. The cases involved some easy math and you should come up with a clear piece of advice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Brussels (Belgium)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Their are three interview rounds. The first round consists of a computer test and a case interview. In the computer test you get 45 minutes to answer 26 questions. The test looks like a business case and you get mathematical and logical questions. Afterwards, you get a case interview with a consultant at BCG. This takes on average one hour. The first 10-15 minutes they ask personal questions, after that the case starts, which takes 30 minutes and at the end you have 15 minutes to ask questions at the consultant. The second round consists of an in-basket case and a normal business case. For the in-basket case you get 2 hours to prepare a presentation with the information from the book you get. It is a lot on information and you don't need everything.
