    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Boston, MA (US)) in November 2012.

    Interview

    It was a process that was comfortable. Nice atmosphere and work environment. Everyone throughout the process was very helpful and kind. They were able to answer any questions I had. I think that this was one interview where I felt most comfortable. I was able to display a portfolio and Interact with a number of different employees on the Finance and Analysis team. Parking in Boston is a challenge in general. This is something I had wished I planned ahead of time. I ended up walking about 20min to get to the interview. I would recommend giving some added time in case there is a walk involved in the commute.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Atlanta, GA (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through university recruiting. Got an email from a recruiter from Atlanta within 2 hours asking for a phone interview.

    Set up the interview for the next day. Overall just general questions about my background, recruiter in Atlanta stated that could be over qualified. Regardless he said a few times it went well and he would put my application through. He told me to expect a formal application later that day.

    I proceeded to never hear from him again, I emailed him to follow up and never got a response. Hopefully this is an isolated incident and this is not indicative of the culture at BCG.
