Junior Consultant Interview

Positive Experience
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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Roland Berger (Chicago, IL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting, interview process went smoothly. 1 45 min case and behavioral. The interviewer was friendly and engaged the entire time. Helps move you along if you get stuck on the case. I received a phone call after the weekend with some feedback on how I did, which is very helpful. Unfortunately, it came down to a fit situation, and I did not move on in the process.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Roland Berger (Paris (France)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    3 rounds = 2x interviews each.
    Hard to organize, but 2 weeks between each once I heard back after submitting my resume.
    The interviews are very standard, with a fit part and a case. The cases didn't include any documents but each of them included calculations.

    Interview Questions

    • " why would you like to work in consulting? "
      " What type of tasks do you anticipate as a Junior Consultant"
      " Tell me a story where you displayed leadership skills"   Answer Question

    Junior Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Roland Berger (Singapore (Singapore)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Very protracted and time consuming.

    Went through all 5 rounds of interviews. After each round I had to call the HR to arrange for the next interview, since there was no communication until after I initiated it . Later on I was scheduled ahead for the final 2 rounds more than 1 week in advance, but I was only informed 2 hours before the 4th round that the interviews were postponed indefinitely.

    Afterwards I repeatedly followed up with HR to no avail, but after I sent an email directly to the interviewing partners the interviews were scheduled almost immediately. It seems that HR was a roadblock during the interview process.

    After the final interview I was dinged because of a "cultural fit", and did not receive the news until after I called HR.

    Overall a very unpleasant and frustrating process

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Roland Berger (Brussels (Belgium)).

    Interview

    Two interviews, started by motivation question then case studies. Each interviewer was very easygoing and not here to tackle me but rather construct a solution for a client with me. My advice would be to consider it as a collaboration rather than a confrontation time.
