Boston Consulting Group

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

No Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Seattle, WA) in Oct 2021

Interview

Recruiter reached out to me 2 weeks after submitting application. Told me about the interview process: Round 1: 30 minute chatbot case + 25 minute behavioral interview with project leader. Round 2: 2 30 minute case style interviews with partners/principals. I didn't pass the first round, and was shocked. I felt like I aced the chatbot case and connected well with my interviewer, so was genuinely surprised that I didn't move on to the second round. It was a shame, since I really wanted to work there and felt there was a good fit.

Interview Questions
  • The chatbot interview was regarding whether a life insurer should offer a service where policyholders can opt into a wearable tracking device program to receive discounts based on fitness activity. It was fairly straightforward -- seemed more like a problem solving worksheet than an actual case. Behavioral interview is standard: Why BCG, tell me a about a time when... ,etc.

Application

I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Milan) in Apr 2020

Interview

Embarassing. The company privileges women with sub-par CVs to high level male candidates in the name of gender balance. If this is the way to balance the predominantly male workforce, the management has to think again if this is the right way to do that. Hopefully, in the long term, their business will resent of these foolish decisions! Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that men are better or worse of women, I am just saying that a person should be evaluated for his CV independently of the gender or similar factors. And that is definetly NOT happening here.
