Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in October 2018.

Interview

The interview process was pretty straightforward. There was a prescreening call and then two following interviews, 2 rounds each. They were typical case study interviews, and while they were interested in learning more about me and asking behavioral questions they were definitely focused on the case studies.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Melbourne (Australia)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I had two 45-minute interview sessions with two BCG Principals. They started off with some get-to-know-you questions; they asked me to tell them a bit about myself and followed up with some questions about my CV and cover letter. Then they followed up with some STAR questions for about 15 minutes and then we started the case study. The case study goes for 20 minutes and the interviewers were very nice - they can sense when you're getting stuck and ask you some prompting questions to lead you in the right direction.
    The last 10 minutes are allotted for you to ask them any questions you may have about BCG.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Moscow (Russia)).

    Interview

    Very fast and friendly recruiting process. Won a local BCG competition and was invited directly to the first round. Two rounds of interview were very typical for the industry, however, the fit part was bigger and more interesting than in two other MBB companies.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Munich, Bayern (Germany)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    2 Gespräche jeweils mit einem Consultant (ca 15min. Lebenslauf, 20min. Case, 10min. Fragen) + 1 Online Test. Sehr freundliche und angenehme Atmosphäre. Online Test fand ich jedoch etwas schwierig und ich weiß ehrlich nicht, wie man sich auf so etwas am besten vorbereiten kann. Die Cases waren nicht schwer, man musste jedoch einige BWL-Grundlagen wissen wie z.B. was growth drivers sind oder wie man die Marktgröße grob berechnen kann.
