    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Roland Berger.

    Interview

    The process involved an assessment center at the office comprised of a GMAT-style test (with actual GMAT questions on quant and verbal) and two case interviews.
    The test was quite difficult and didn't allow calculators for one part.
    The case interviews consisted of personal questions about the CV and personality and a market sizing case each. One interviewer asked a mathematical brain teaser.
    The interviewers were very nice and the tone was rather informal.

    Interview Questions

    • Personal: Why consulting? What personality complements you best/least in a team? Questions about old internships. How do you do with time pressure/long working hours?
      Technical: Market sizing- Profits of a beer brewer on one night in London; Size of the solar panel market in the UK. Clarification questions and a very structured approach are important

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Roland Berger (Beijing, Beijing (China)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was studying abroad so I got two phone interviews. First round was behavior question + mini-case, mainly asked me the stuff on my resume, the case was quite simple, more like a discussion to see if you have analytical skills. Second round was another mini-case (typical market sizing question). Interviewers were friendly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Roland Berger (Düsseldorf (Germany)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview process: 1 competency based interview (~1h), 2 case interviews (~1h each)

    Afterwards all applicants had coffee and some food, before receiving their feedback. Berger typical culture (less humble etc.) during the interviews, but overall friendly.

    Cases can be both interviewer or candidate led. Be prepared for short behavioural and CV-related questions even in second and third interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Roland Berger (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a response to interview via Skype. Interview is fairly straightforward and goes from the usual "tell me about yourself" pitch to a brain teaser and a mini-case which for me was market entry. I have to say the whole interview process is very poorly managed: I was kept waiting an entire day for an interview. There was no follow up after the interview even though the interviewer said there would be a series of interviews. Disappointing to say the least.

    Interview

    Really nice company. Interviewers really interesting and pleasant. 2 interviews and a GMAT style test. Test is straightforward - maths simple but time is tight - easier than MBB. Usual competency questions - not a huge amount of them. Most of the time spent on market sizing question and short case in second interview. Obviously structure is key so main focus would be making sure you can structure a market sizing appropriately.
