    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in May 2017.

    Interview

    A simple phone screen. Recruiter was cold, and unfriendly. Questions were vague and there didn't really seem to be a lot of thought put behind them. Then rapid-fire questions over my pay and benefits of my current position, almost as if I was trying to be tripped up. All this with a tone of disbelief. Made me think twice about applying to BCG again - if this was a glimpse into how HR approaches staff, I'd like a company that views their employees as human capital that should be valued, rather than adversaries. I left feeling like the latter.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Mumbai (India)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Started with Hr round ..head of Admin round and meeting with two partners. Detailed and informal but challenging interview process. They were informative about the role and wanted an individual team leader and contributer. The Hr round though first was the toughest. There was a good gender diversity in appearance but it seemed pretty male driven agenda.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Bengaluru (India)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    They called me directly for a face to face round. There was a panel of 2. The interviewers were not open to listening. They had few premeditated answers in their mind and they expected me to give my answer according to that.
    Also, I felt that the panel was missing technical competency and they were not open to learning as well.

    Client Services Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty extensive with lots of rounds. First round included a basic behavioral interview with HR over the phone. Second round included three 30-minute behavioral interviews over Skype. Third round included two in-depth interviews in person. Everything went well but they never got back to me regarding whether or not I had gotten the role. I clearly did not get it, but it was left up to me to figure that out. Emails, calls, and voice messages will not be answered if you do not get the role. I liked the people I spoke to but the company is clearly unprofessional and insensitive to prospective candidates. The process wasted weeks of my time during my final semester of undergrad.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Munich, Bayern (Germany)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    wie vorher abgesprochen wurde zuerst ein online test durchgeführt, dann ein interview bestehen aus einem case study interview und einem personal fit interview. dieses interview ging ca. 45 minuten. während der personal fit teil machbar war, war der case study teil sehr schwer - trotz vorbereitung mit prep lounge usw. daraufhin fand ein zweites interview statt, das genau so aufgebaut war - nur mit einem anderen mitarbeiter von BCG. wie auch davor, war in diesem interview der case study teil sehr schwer. man sollte sich im vorfeld gut vorbereiten, nicht nur mit preplounge sondern vor allem durch weitere interviews bei beratungen. zudem sind die case studys be BCG viel schneller und kürzer als bei preplounge, das erfordert übung.

I interviewed on that Friday and was contacted the following Tuesday for my next interview, which was scheduled for that Thursday. I was notified that I would not be proceeding within a few days.

    I was interviewed by an associate at BCG. The interview was 30 minutes, comprised of a CV section, a mini case study (with mental maths questions), and finally questions (from me). The interviewer was friendly though solemn. I was encouraged to take my time and given pointers during the case study exercise. The whole conversation was quite casual, and it didn't follow the strict structure because I asking questions about the interviewer's work very early on.
