There was a pretty simple "fit" portion about ourselves and our backgrounds and a more difficult case portion, in which you need to answer two complex business problems with organized solutions

    Envié una solicitud electrónica. El proceso duró 3 semanas. Acudí a una entrevista en Boston Consulting Group (Houston, TX (Estados Unidos)) en septiembre de 2017.

    Entrevista

    Boston Consulting Group was a company that I had dreamed of working for for many years. I was very excited that I was called for an interview. I was first interviewed by telephone. The questions were general in nature. After my interview, I was excited to learn I would be moved to second interview.

    For my second interview, I was interviewed by a millennial HR Recruiter on site at Boston Consulting Group. The HR Recruiter was very nervous and smiled a lot. She seemed inexperienced and the questions were general in nature. For my second interview, a Senior Manager called me from Dallas, Texas. She was late for the interview and so we did not get off to a good start. I felt it was unprofessional. Overall, I decided not to pursue the job opportunity with Boston Consulting Group based on the interviews.

    Great interview prep (webinars, mock interview, in-house case prep). Interview itself was 2x45 minute interview, each consisting of both behavioral questions and a case (different questions for each interview). In-person interviews took place two weeks after receiving interview notification.

    First round with two reasonably friendly interviewers. Final round in DC with one friendly interviewer, one cold/apathetic interviewer. Be ready for your interviewers to play bad cop, or at the very least act disinterested in you!

    Entrevista

    Typical case interview, with one case per interviewer, along with some additional behavioral questions. The interviewers were very young, kind of stand-offish, and seem to be looking for a particular personality fit with themselves. Overall, kind of a cold experience and not what I had hoped for.

    Solicitud

    Envié una solicitud electrónica. El proceso duró una semana. Acudí a una entrevista en Boston Consulting Group (Chicago, IL (Estados Unidos)) en julio de 2018.

    Entrevista

    First round: very standard. Two fit questions, then a case interview, then "what questions do you have for me?" Interviewers are project managers, and have typically been at BCG for 3-5 years.

    They have a standard quick turnaround. I interviewed twice (2017 and 2018) both times on a Friday. The first time they let me know I passed on Tuesday evening, the second time they let me know I passed Monday afternoon.

    Second round: this round the interviewers are partners and the questions are a lot more open-ended. In the Seattle and Chicago offices, second round also involves a written case, where you get 45 minutes before the interview starts to go through a slide deck and solve a case with that data, which you then present to the interviewer.

    In Seattle 2017, there was a written case with a friendly interviewer, then a regular case interview with a (deliberately) grumpy interviewer. I think they want to see how you respond to unfriendly clients. The written case was hard for me to organize - I don't know how much of that was the case and how much of that was just my nerves. Didn't pass.

    In Chicago 2018, I had a regular case interview first. She asked fit questions, but they were more in the context of a conversation than specific fit questions. The case interview for that case was surprisingly open-ended and pretty difficult - she didn't have most of the information I asked for, and when I was clearly stuck she asked me to just wrap it up. It wasn't the worst I could have done, but I knew I had to really own the second case to get an offer.
    This time, the written case was a lot easier to organize. I highly recommend reading the section in Victor Cheng's book on presentation interviews, as this gave me a strategy going in. I started the section with the interviewer by presenting my synthesis like I had just done a normal case, then the interviewer asked a few questions about how I got the numbers I did, asked if there were other things we could look at, etc. It was about the conversation and testing to see whether I could back up the claims and recommendations I'd made. Then he followed that up with several fit questions - again, more like a conversation than set fit questions. I definitely owned this case and I think I redeemed myself, because in the end I got the offer!
