Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (New York, NY) in October 2018.

Interview

The process is very competitive but people are in general very nice. One partner was very disrespectful, he crossed the line. The final round is way harder and way more formal than the first round.

    First stage, case study based test, quite straightforward. Second stage, two 90 minutes interviews with two associates, case study and motivational questions and some brain teasers. The case study questions are meant to try your mental calculation skills. The interviews were in spanish but one of the interviewers asked me to answer some of the motivational questions in english.

    Interview

    The BCG Interviews were very relaxed / candidate led. Consultants gave the interviewees cases they'd worked on and the interview process was more of a discussion. There were some 'fit' questions but very basic.
