    Global HR Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The telephone interview went well and I was told that I would hear more at the beginning of the following week. I waited and then chased once 2 weeks had passed, and I still received no response.

    I find this exceptionally unprofessional, especially given the role was for a HRD. Managing candidate expectations and a courteous response is the minimum that is required, as opposed to radio silence. BCG TA team are clearly not interested in managing the candidate process professionally. Would not recommend.

    Associate Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Bengaluru (India)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    1st round was an offline written test. There was a lot of cheating. 2nd round was a personal interview. The panel wasn't uniform, so a lot of luck plays at hand. There was a second round of interview as well. Don't go for this role if you're remotely smart.

    Presentation Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    The interview process was a month-long process speaking with many different people. The overall experience was very professional, and the interviewers are nice and understanding. I went through a about five interviews.

    The first two interviews were on the phone and the conversation was mainly what we were both looking for and questions about the company. From there, the interviews moved to interviewers in my department. It is with these interviews you need to prepare for. The third interview was meeting my manager and she asked basic interview questions. The fourth interview they test you on how you handle different situations. Be prepared for anything they throw at you. If you are an experienced designer then you will have no problem.

    All in all, it was a very thorough process, but I enjoyed it because it felt like they care about who they hire. It said a lot about the standards of BCG.

    Initial phone call first, then one on one interview, and then called back for a more relaxed getting to know you interview. Amazing experience even though I was denied. BCG is a fantastic company and anyone would be lucky to work there.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Munich, Bayern (Germany)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Zwei Cases, einmal deutsch, einmal englisch. Beide mit Fallstudie und Lebenslauffragen. Lebenslauf wurde sehr tief diskutiert (inkl. sehr vieler Beispielfragen, starkes Interesse), dadurch auch sehr spannendes Gespräch mit dem Interviewer möglich. Fallstudien sind Fälle aus dem echten Leben der Interviewpartner.

    Gesprächsatmosphäre ist insgesamt freundlich, Inhalte jedoch "hart".
