    Interview

    The interview process is straightforward, master business cases and you'll succeed. There are plenty of free ones online to aid your practice. I read and memorized Case In Point and it helps provide a useful beginning framework for thinking about things, although you shouldn't just repeat the canned responses from the book

    Interview

    Straight forwarded, 2 case studies with personal interviews mixed in. Cases were pretty straight forwaded, would just look at case and point and that's the level of difficulty in my opinion.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

    Interview

    On campus recruiting followed by two rounds of interviews, with two interview in each round. Second round of interviews was at the office location of choice. Majority of time was dedicated to the case, but all interviewers asked 2-4 behavioral questions that seemed to have played a role in the overall decision to hire.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (New York, NY (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process has 3 steps: CV selection, first interview, and second interview. The first and second interviews are really similar: each has 2 interviewers and they do a case + 10 min behavioral part. In the end, you have to be ready to go through 4 cases (2 in the first interview and 2 in the second interview).
