    Associate Consultant Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mars & Co (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Was contacted first over the phone and had an informal conversation about my interest in consulting and the company. Then I had a phone interview which included a brain teaser and was invited to the in-office final round interview afterward. The final round consisted of 2 one-on-one interviews with senior consultants (each with a case) and lunch with two consultants afterward.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mars & Co (San Francisco, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of two one-on-one interviews. I was asked a market sizing question in one and a couple of brain teasers in the other. Other than that it was mostly behavioral questions. Afterwards I had a short (and terrible) conversation in french with the office manager because it turns out I was being considered for a position that required speaking french. I was so obviously unqualified for the foreign language component of the job that it was no surprise I wasn't hired. The interviewing process was fine though.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mars & Co (San Francisco, CA) in August 2009.

    Interview

    I interviewed with a VP, the HR lady and two higher-level consultants. Each one gave me some sort of brain-teaser or market sizing question. They also asked me questions about my resume, why I wanted to work in consulting, and why I wanted to work for Mars & Co in particular. The VP asked me if I knew what strategic consulting was and if I could identify some potential competitors in the industry. Overall my conversations with people were very laid-back. The interview lasted about 3.5 hours. I was not offered a position because my quants fell short.
