    Consultant DB Management Consulting Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Deutsche Bahn in May 2014.

    Interview

    It took about three months from the initial application to the final interview. There was a behavioral based phone interview, followed by an essay about my most challenging and successful project with my previous employer (one of Big Four audit firms). Then a first face-to-face interview with a Senior Consultant and a Principal, which included a case study. The second face-to-face interview was with another Principal and an HR. Finally there was a phone interview with the HR Director, which included a case study as well. The hiring process was very long and quite unfair regarding the last phone interview (after passing face-to-face interviews). The denial was based according to my personal opinion mostly on the judgement of the HR and the final HR phone call.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were very much based on the personality profile, so there were almost no general questions.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Deutsche Bahn (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    You had to apply with a CV and a cover letter. After a month I was invited to the interview. Travel expenses to the interview were reimbursed, of course I was taking the train. Unfortuntely and ironically the train was late, but the interview was relaxed about it. the interview was nothing special, just personality questions and a short market sizing. Got the response directly after the interview from my interviewer.
