    Interview

    First spoke with HR about coming in for an interview, and when. The manager and coordinator were fair. Upon interview day, I met with one of them first for about 30 minutes, and then met with the other for 30 minutes as well. It was very straight to the point, and asked questions about my experience as well as described their team and what they did.

    serious but genuine interviewer. A lot of behavioral questions and situational questions. Why them and why the specific position. It was very conversational but every aspect of the conversation was entirely relevant to a question that had been asked.

    Application submission through school website and BCG website. They contacted me for a first-round interview, and informed me that a second-round interview would happen one week after that. For the final interview, the would fly me to their office for a formal interview.
