2 Caseinterview, eingängig werden gewöhnliche Fragen zum Lebenslauf gestellt und dann die Casestudy bearbeitet. Davor wird noch ein Onlinetest bearbeitet der es in sich hat.
Es ist wichtig strukturiert vorzugehen und genaue Berechnungen anzustellen. Man muss auch bei der Zeit aufpassen. Abschließend kann man noch kurz Fragen an den Interviewer stellen.

    Entretien

    First an online test for about 40 minutes which was very very though. I think all of us doing it more or less failed it. Right after it I had my first case interview. Next round was an other case interview with PL/Principal and final round included 2 partner interviews. During the interviews there was very little chatting, more or less straight to the case.

    • Cases varied a lot, one was an odd one brainstorming where you weren't allowed to take some time to make notes or structure it. I was drwan a graph and needed to explain it by talking through a possible business model and competitive landscape. (Partner interview)   1 réponse

    Entretien

    2 interview rounds:
    first interview round consisted of a numerical test, that assessed business judgement and basic math skills, 26 questions in 45 minutes, so time is short, and one oral interview where fit was tested and a short case was done.
    Second round consisted of a written case, where you had 2hrs of preparation time to prepare a short presentation, and an oral case, similar to the one in the first round, but with a more senior person.

    Entretien

    I applied online, and they got back to me within the week. After that, the process was pretty long and included 3 rounds of interviews:

    - 1st round: computer-based test + 1 hour case + fit interview
    - 2nd round: in-basket case + 1 hour case + fit interview
    - 3rd round: in-basket case + 1 hour case + fit interview

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • - Computer-based test: answer 24 questions in 20 minutes, similar to McKinsey's test. Resembles to GMAT's Integrated Reasoning, but MUCH harder.

      - Regular Cases: interviewee-led, to some extend. BIG focus on the framework (really important to have a fine structure).

      - In-basket case: soooo freakin' hard ! They give you a pile of information about a case, and you have 3 questions to answer.based on that. You are alone in a room for 2 hours to prepare, and then present your findings during a 20' presentation.   Répondre à cette question

    It was a mock interview offered to selected students during an on-campus event. Standard consulting interview: some fitting at the beginning (deliberately not CV-based), a business case (more like an estimation question) and time for some questions by me at the end. The interviewer stressed how all of the three phases are subject to evaluation.

    Entretien

    The entire process took a bit long because I am currently working in a different country than the office I applied at. For the internship I went through 1 interview + 1 computer based test on the first round, 2 interviews on the second round and 3 interviews on the third round. Most of the interviews were standard BCG: 15 minutes fit, 30 minutes case, 15 minutes my questions.

    During the first stage, a Principal of the firm was in London (I currently live in the UK) to do some business for the firm and gave me the first round interview, together with the problem solving test on the computer. I found the problem solving test as difficult as McKinsey PST: while you do have access to a calculator in this case, you also have 25% less time to go through the same amount of questions, and on top of that questions required you to navigate through multiple exhibits at the same time, not just the last one.

    During the second stage, the HR agreed to wait until I was in my own country and had the second round directly in the office. Alternative would have been to have a conference call, but I preferred to be there in person. 2 interviews this time, standard format.

    By the time I got to the third stage, I was back in the UK for work. This time the company wanted definitely to have me back in the office to meet the partners, therefore flew me in on the thursday to have the interview on the friday. First and third interview were again standard. During the second interview (with a senior partner & managing director) my interviewer wanted to make sure that given my background (engineering + phd in engineering) I really wanted to work in consulting. So basically he questioned me for 40 minutes on consulting, my motivation to do it, how do I understand the industry, what are the success factors in consulting (as an individual and as a firm), who are the main competitors, what are the challenges and the threats for BCG, what are the differences of consulting in the rest of the world and in the country where I applied. All of this was done in a skeptical and not friendly way, but I suspect he was grilling me to do some kind of stress testing and see if I could keep my cool with a difficult client.

    HR was extremely supportive throughout the process, and every interviewer I met was very polite, interested in me and pleasant to have a conversation with. Excellent experience.

    Entretien

    Applied in the Paris office. I had one computer based challenge, and then there were two rounds consisting in 2 interviews (45 min) each. The case studies were not too difficult but I was under the impression that every time I tried to answer, the interviewer was dissatisfied with my answers, which made me feel very uncomfortable.

    Entretien

    Zwei Cases, einmal deutsch, einmal englisch. Beide mit Fallstudie und Lebenslauffragen. Lebenslauf wurde sehr tief diskutiert (inkl. sehr vieler Beispielfragen, starkes Interesse), dadurch auch sehr spannendes Gespräch mit dem Interviewer möglich. Fallstudien sind Fälle aus dem echten Leben der Interviewpartner.

    Gesprächsatmosphäre ist insgesamt freundlich, Inhalte jedoch "hart".

    Entretien

    I applied from North America to an Eastern European location. The folks set up the interview through a low latency video chat for the interview. Format is different from North American firms and therefore misprepared - prepared for mini case and behavioural questions but received brain teasers/word problems with behaviourals. All folks were friendly.
