Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

Interview

I've gone through several banking and consulting interviews, but people at BCG definitely seemed most friendly and yet also most intellectual. Although it is somewhat difficult to land an interview with them, once you receive an invitation for the first round interview, as long as you've been preparing for the case interviews, it should not be EXTREMELY difficult. My first round was back-to-back interviews, about 30 minutes each. Case portion took most of the time each session.

Interview Questions

  • They use real cases... mine was both about increasing efficiency while maintaining profitability.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Chicago, IL) in May 2019.

    Interview

    2 cases, 1 behavioral. Cases were relatively simple; market entry and market size. Behavioral is what you would expect (teamwork, leadership, etc.) Nothing was unexpected or too difficult. Just be sure to practice.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    First Round at the office through campus recruiting.

    Case involved something that was my particular interest. I believe there is a good chance the interviewer will select a case based on your background

    Interview

    On campus recruiting, and the recruiting process was quite pleasant. The people seemed very nice and we got to meet a lot of the interviewers the day before at dinner for the 1st round interviews. The second round was at the office preference, and was with 2 manager or higher people. Both interviews quite difficult.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpectedly did not have very much behavioral. The cases were quite straightforward up until the 2nd round where there were some curveballs.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed at the BCG office in Philadelphia. Interviewers were very professional, nice, and encouraging. I enjoyed the experience. I kind of bungled the first interview a bit which is why I think I didn't make it to the second round.

    Interview Questions

    • Tough case on airplane company. Lots of synthesis required in terms of charts and data; the math was fine, just being able to keep the information together was a bit difficult.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Summit, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had two rounds of interviews and both rounds were in the NJ office. After the first round, BCG was very helpful in providing a phone call with personalized feedback. The second round of interview was definitely more challenging with a more senior member of BCG.

    Interview Questions

    • Two case interviews for each round. The interview started with one or two behavioral questions then moved straight to the case. The case portion involves a graph and is more self guided than led.   1 Answer

    Two rounds of two cases. The first round was with a consultant and an associate and the second round was with two partners. Overall it was a good process and what I expected. BCG likes to show candidates graphs and see how candidates respond.
