Interview

I had a phone interview a few weeks back. The phone interview was for 30 minutes. It was mostly about my resume. It was the first round. They told me, they would get back to me in 2 weeks. I followed up with after 10 days. They told that I didn't get through to the next round. They were quick in responding.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in October 2014.

    Interview

    This is one of the worst companies to interview with. My process was drawn out of three months after HR told me someone needed to be hired within a month. I went through six rounds of interviews. It started off with an analyst and the person who would be my line manager and then went up the food chain. All of the interviews were done over a skype type interface that worked terribly. I was led on and gave up a job offer for Booz Allen Hamilton just to hold out and hear from BCG. HR does not respond to emails unless you hound them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    3 rounds- One of the most challenging interviews I have faced.
    It started with first technical round with the interviewer asking statistical theory questions like liner, logistic etc , later she asked me SAS queries and checked my coding skills by giving me a data set.

    Second round was person asking me Maths and general aptitude questions- but he asked me not to use pen and paper and solve them mentally so that was quite challenging. In addition to that both First and second interviewer were telling me things like "Oh god u can't do this? Oh c mon this should not take this much time etc." Guess they wanted to see the ability to perform under pressure/ add to the challenge.

    Third Round was with the team director- was more like a general catch up and HR type questions-

    Tell about yourself?
    Why BCG?

    He also explained about the things to expect and kind of work they do.

    In the end he gave me a guesstimate question.
