Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in October 2018.

Interview

The interview process was pretty straightforward. There was a prescreening call and then two following interviews, 2 rounds each. They were typical case study interviews, and while they were interested in learning more about me and asking behavioral questions they were definitely focused on the case studies.

    Interview

    Three rounds
    1 interview each
    The typical case question and fit split, more time was allocated to the case. Interviews are with senior employees and are fairly challenging overall. Would recommend a lot of focus on the case as the majority of the scoring seemed to relate to case performance at round 1.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    There are two rounds (BCG DACH):
    Round 1: Two Case Interviews (20-25 Minute Fit and 20 Minute Case) and one GMAT style quant/logic test that you do on a laptop at the BCG office.
    Round 2: Another two Case Interviews (same as above but more emphasis on fit and maybe just a 15 minute market sizing exercise) and 3 real life situations where you have to solve mini tasks that a consultant might face in every day life (eg. draw up a slide given some data)

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Moscow (Russia)).

    Interview

    Very fast and friendly recruiting process. Won a local BCG competition and was invited directly to the first round. Two rounds of interview were very typical for the industry, however, the fit part was bigger and more interesting than in two other MBB companies.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Melbourne (Australia)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I had two 45-minute interview sessions with two BCG Principals. They started off with some get-to-know-you questions; they asked me to tell them a bit about myself and followed up with some questions about my CV and cover letter. Then they followed up with some STAR questions for about 15 minutes and then we started the case study. The case study goes for 20 minutes and the interviewers were very nice - they can sense when you're getting stuck and ask you some prompting questions to lead you in the right direction.
    The last 10 minutes are allotted for you to ask them any questions you may have about BCG.
