    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    It was a case interview that was very difficult. I wasn't allowed to use a calculator and had to calculate very difficult numbers, in the sphere of billions and under tight time pressure. First, the interview started with personal and competency based questions and the atmosphere was very casual, but once the case interview started the atmosphere changed.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given the question whether a shampoo company should explore the german market and introduce a organic hair care line. From there on, I had to completely come up with the approach and calculations myself. I had 5 minutes time to think and had to describe all my steps and results to the interviewee.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

    Interview

    2 back to back interviews. Both with case studies to solve. The first one was about market sizing: you're given a question like "tell me how many subprime mortgages are sold in the U.S. this year" and you have to think out loud without consulting anything else and get to an answer that must be close to the actual figure. The first interviewer was nice but the second was the opposite and made me tilt. Tip: don't repeat what one says to the other; it might not be true.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Casablanca (Morocco)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Standard case interview after completing the online assessment. My interviewer was a bit cold, and he did his best to keep the conversation moving along. Shied away from a follow up about ethics. Overall, it was a stimulating experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Dubai (United Arab Emirates)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Completed all rounds of interviews, ultimately no response. Repeated calls for follow-up/ feedback went ignored. BCG is trailing behind competitors in terms of the recruiting process. Flights and hotels were both excellent and well organized, however.
