Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Dallas, TX (US)) in January 2016.

Interview

The first round consisted of two 45 minute interviews. Each including a case study, and a behavioral portion. The case studies were very difficult, and they are looking for you to organize your thoughts in a very specific manner. The behavior questions were very easy, relaxed, and conversational. They also give you time to ask questions at the end, which is a great opportunity to ask anything you have concerns about or just about their experiences with the company.

Interview Questions

  • They ask a lot about how you handle teamwork and group projects. Also asked about a time my group failed at something.   Answer Question
