    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Simon-Kucher & Partners.

    Interview

    one case first round which was great. the second round was good, or so I thought. They send a generic rejection email. ignored me after that- no feedback. The recruiter was rather incompetent, changed my interview date four times! "forgot" to send me my schedule. bookings were done mere hours before I had to fly out. Forgot about my arrival on the day of the interview. thank god, I won't work there.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Simon-Kucher & Partners (New Haven, CT (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I applied through the on-campus recruiting system. Had my first round interview on campus. The interview consisted of about 10 minutes of fit questions and going over my resume experiences, and then 20 minutes for a case. 20 minutes definitely seemed like a really short time for the case. The last 5-10 minutes were allotted for the interviewee to ask the interviewer any questions they had.
