    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Roland Berger (Ann Arbor, MI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on campus, was invited to the interview two days before the interview. The interviewer was really nice and wanted the interviewee to feel comfortable. Started with the case (a lot of math) following by "walk me through your resume" and couple behavioral questions. Got the call from the interviewer the same evening.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Roland Berger (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview was ok, it started off a little bit awkward, but continued with some general "tell me about a time" questions. Then jumped into a case which was a pretty simple and straight-forward case. We only had 10 or 15 minutes to complete the case (4 parts...), so I didn't have time to finish it. I went through all of the correct steps, but feedback after the interview was that others were able to complete the case faster. So it seems like speed was extremely important for this interview.

    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Roland Berger (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. Did my first round phone interview and was called to their Chicago office two weeks after that. Had a lof of scheduling issues of their part in both rounds.
    The consultants are pretty good and are motivated. I was interviewed by Partners and Principals who were friendly and made me confortable during the interview.
    For the final round, they have 3 parts as described on their website. But, in their Case presentation part of the interview, I could not find any helpful resource or information anywhere online or through the HR. That is the part where I struggled. The business knowledge part is straightforward. Its a pseudo case where they want to judge your business acumen and the ability to hold an intelligent conversation. The topic can be anything thats related to current affairs.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Roland Berger.

    Interview

    Round 1 was a Quantitative/IQ Test. Not enough time to finish and no way of knowing how much time I had left (no phones permitted or clocks visible in the room). Round 2 was an interview with a senior consultant. He was smart, serious and aloof. Slightly intimidating, but that's management consulting.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Roland Berger in October 2014.

    Interview

    I had one on-campus interview, which was a standard case study with no particular emphasis on fit questions. I was passed to second round at the office of my preference: here I had one fit interview, then a "business knowledge" interview and finally a written case. The fit interview was quite standard, the business knowledge was an engaging discussion about the "state of the art" of the specific industry which will be your focus once hired. The written case involved going through some slides and prepare a presentation about a problem for a client. It is important to prioritize the analysis in that case. Overall, it was not a hard interview, but the interviewers were a bit unprofessional - speaking in German to each other while I was a non-German speaker interviewing at an office in North America.
