Recruiting Assistant Interview

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Boston, MA) in July 2014.

Interview

2 days after submitting my online application I received an email invitation for an interview which took place two days after. The process was pretty fast and well organized (received interview invitation first, after agreeing on date and time received interview confirmation with all relevant information). Overall the interview went well. It was a friendly professional atmosphere with standard interview questions - nothing unexpected.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    It was a first round interview - Pretty quick process. The recruiter asked me three situational questions and then provided me with the opportunity to ask her any questions I had. The recruiter was very friendly and answered the questions I had and allowed me to expand on them. I would practice answers to varying situations (describe a time when you...)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email from a recruiter a couple days later requesting a phone interview. The phone interview was short and simple. Unfortunately, after speaking with the recruiter I knew I was overqualified for the position. My experience was better fit for an actual recruiter and not an assistant. Great thing, I received an email less than a week later informing me that the company was moving forward. I prefer that over the silence some firms will put you through for weeks without knowing where you stand in the interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was a very thorough interview process. It took much longer than anticipated, but I was able to meet with many people (some twice). I wish there had been a quicker turn around so I hadn't put my job search on hold.

    Interview

    Overall positive! One phone screening, and three 30 min video interviews. Interviewers were friendly, informative, and energetic. The interviews were more like conversations and I think they just wanted to get to know me. Almost all behavioral questions and no hypotheticals.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was invited to a first stage interview after being short-listed by an agency. The invite was very short notice as they wanted to fill the role as soon as possible. The two people I met were very friendly, professional and polite, they asked me mainly competency based questions. I felt I have a good connection with company structure and their values. Sadly there was no invite to a second round. Overall, very nice experience!
