    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting in October 2016.

    Interview

    First round was two back to back 30 minute cases over the phone. One was a straightforward and pretty easy strategy case with a behavioral question, and the other was a difficult market sizing case with another short behavioral question. You need to nail the market sizing/quantitative case to move on to the second round.

    Was told I would hear back two days later, but heard back 5 days later through an email that I would not be moving on.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting (Boston, MA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    First round was two 30 minute cases, one strategy and one quantitative. Very quick turnaround, found out about second round within a week. Second round was the next week and consisted of three 30 minute interviews with partners and managing consultants. One was strategy, the other two were more quantitative (market sizing and pricing).

    Interview

    Two cases back to back one market size one strategy. Pretty straight forward overall. Interviewers were cordial and nice. Very clear with cases and answered questions for clarification. Pretty simple if you are calm and don't fluster. This was a first round off cycle. Mostly interested in cases not too interested in fit.

    Interview

    Very quick process. Applied online. Got response one day later. Had two 30 minute phone interviews back-to-back with different people. Each person first asked fit questions and then did small case study, with time equally split between the two. Did not advance.
