    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Washington, DC (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by two employees, and they started right in on my .com background - that it's a bad thing b/c their clients are .gov. One of the interviewers had a real "thing" about this, and I got the impression working there was just about order taking.
