    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting in November 2019.

    Interview

    First Round: Conducted at my university, 2 thirty minute qualitative & quantitative interviews.
    Quantitative was basic market-sizing questions, then a couple behavioral questions.
    Qualitative was very conversational, I had to add my own structure and reasoning to drive the case.

    Second Round: 3 thirty minute interviews at L.E.K. office.
    One was behavioral questions + market sizing question
    One was market sizing, with a bit of case and strategy afterwards
    One was general behavioral questions and "what do I do for fun?"

    First round on campus, second round in office. I applied through on-campus career services. The entire team was friendly, responsive, and gave me individual feedback after my interviews. Great experience and impression of the firm overall.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting.

    Interview

    LEK provided a lot of resources leading to both rounds of interviews. RI consisted of two phone screens with current LSSs. RII was on-site with three interviews, one of which was a presentation/slide-building case. I clicked with most of the interviewers, but there was one who rubbed me the wrong way. His attitude was very bro-ey and seemed disinterested while I was presenting.

    Ultimately, I decided not to join because the track of LSS seemed too separate from their regular consultant path and culture mismatch.

    Summer Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting (Boston, MA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Round 1 - 2 back to back case interviews. Pretty standard cases - Market sizing + strategy case
    Round 2 - 3 back to back interviews. 2 standard case interviews and 1 written case. The problem was that one may end up with a strategy case in between preparation for the written interview (1 hr) and the actual ppt presentation for the same. This leads to a lot of break. Also, since its a rotating interviewer format, some students get an unfair advantage here.

    Consultant Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting (Chicago, IL) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I received an interview invite via email a week or so after my application.

    First Interview Round - Two strategy cases. Felt I did well and fairly positive I'd make it through. Got offer for second round 6-7 days later.

    Second Round - Flew out for second round the following Monday to the Chicago office. Had three cases similar to others. One market sizing case, one written case interview, and one strategy case. I nailed the market sizing case, felt I structured the written case well but didn't give sound logic supporting my recommendation, and felt that I kind of blew the strategy case when I talked through my rationale. This was on October 14th.

    Didn't get offer day of or next day...figured I could still be on the wait list, but lost most of my hope. Waited a week...didn't hear back. Waited another week and didn't hear back, so I sent a quick email to the recruiter. She mentioned that I would hear back by end of week, which lifted me up. I figured I was still in the game!

    I received an offer call on November 1st, more than two weeks after my final round.

    Between the offer and my final round I went through a lot of ups and downs because LEK was one of my top choices. If you're in this same position, hopefully this puts you at a little bit of ease knowing you may still be in it!

    Interview Questions

    • The strategy case was with a senior partner. The overall case was very unstructured and left me feeling like I didn't do well. It was a quick introduction of a new product. I did my framework and talked through it. The partner then said "Okay, give me your pricing strategy".   1 Answer
