    Consultant Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

    Interview

    Fit interview + 2 cases. Everything was professional and structured how they tell you in pre-interview preparation. I had multiple contacts outside of the interview and everyone was incredibly kind. When you arrive, you receive a name tag and are sat in a waiting area. Your first interviewer will get you, you spend about 15 minutes on a fit interview then 25-30 minutes doing a case. You then return to your seating area and what I described is repeated with a second interviewer. You get a call within a few weeks to find out if you received a second interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

    Interview

    2 rounds, one with 2 other interviewees. One at office you're applying to.

    First was in a group of 3 and the interviewer (Program Manager). 2nd was with Partners. Made the 2nd but didn't get an offer. (Reason -- not enough case study prep, a few answers were inconcise)

    Interview

    The interview process is straightforward, master business cases and you'll succeed. There are plenty of free ones online to aid your practice. I read and memorized Case In Point and it helps provide a useful beginning framework for thinking about things, although you shouldn't just repeat the canned responses from the book
