    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im November 2014 bei Boston Consulting Group (London, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The interview was held at London's office and comprised of some competency based questions and 2 Case Studies. I found the whole process to be quite unpleasant, because the interviewers were somewhat rude. During the case studies, I got the impression as if I was talking to myself, the interviewer in front of me had a 'poker face' and didn't show any emotions. Very unfriendly atmosphere.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I received an invitation 2 and a half months after my application and was invited to attend two days later. The test was divided in two multiple choice parts: one based on maths skills, the other on logical skills. Time was limited, you had to think quickly and pick the right answer. The logical test was pretty difficult and was similar to GMAT. Having practiced or taken the GMAT exam in the past is very helpful.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über eine Hochschule oder Universität beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 6 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Boston Consulting Group.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I interviewed at BCG London as a PhD in November-December 2014.

    First round: 1 case interview (45min) 1 written numeracy test (45min)
    Second round: 2 case interviews (45min each) rather quantitative
    Final round: 2 partner interviews (45 min each), more focus on business understanding, communication, career motivations.

    My BCG case interviews were structured as follows: 15 min of "fit" questions (focussed mainly on discussing examples of leadership and teamwork), 25 min of a case study (expect to be given exhibits at some point in the case in the first two rounds, as in an interviewer-led case), and 5 minutes to ask questions. All cases presented are based on actual engagements your BCG interviewer participated in. They thus know every aspect of the case, which makes the interview very interesting, and it also means you might want to ask your interviewer about how her or his team approached the problem at the time.

    The recruitment staff was very dedicated, professional, friendly and helpful. Interviewers were friendly too, and very sharp as you would expect. Minutes before your interviews, you will given an enveloppe giving a little bibliography of your interviewer. This is the occasion to anticipate on the question you might want to ask her or him, more than trying to guess what your case will be about.

    In terms of average success rates, I would say that about 7% of applicants receive an invitation to the first round, about 50% of them make it to the second round (which I found surprising), and another 40% are selected to the final round. At this stage, this means that about 80-90 candidates remain in the game, which is less than 2% of the initial application pool.

    In the final round, it seems that if you are brilliant in the two interviews you are basically offered a position (hence there is no quota applied as in previous rounds), so the number of offers varies, but it seems to be around 25-35 offers in the recent years (in London).

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Boston Consulting Group.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    3 interviews in the first round, with 1 principal, 1 senior consultant and 1 consultant. The formats were the same for all, 10 mins or so of competency questions then a case the consultant had done before. Two of the interviewers were very nice, one was relatively pushy (more challenging on the answers and thought processes) and slightly less responsive. The HR lady promised feedback after delivering the outcome, but never did and was not contactable by phone or email. Good experience overall until the HR lady disappeared.

    Standard test followed by case studies. The test only consisted of numerical questions - I found it relatively easy compared to some other firms. It was negatively marked. The interview was the standard first half a CV and general business experience chat followed by a case study in the second half.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Telephone-interview (Frankfurt-Munich). The interviewer was late, 30 min(!). A young consultant, under a lot of pressure and lacking empathy, bad combination... First, 20 min questions about CV and leadership/team-work, then I was asked to solve a case study over the phone, a candidate-led one, it was very challenging. Despite all the money BCG is investing in creating the image of a peoples´ creativity and leadership oriented company (YouTube channel, TEDtalks, etc), the interview felt more like a standardized test, either you fit in the mold or you´re out, disappointing...

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    After submitting my application I received the interview invitation soon. The process involved two interviews, each consisted of two face-to-face case study and personal interviews and one computer-based case study.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • The personal interview involved questions like, which is your biggest achievement, describe an incident with conflict, describe an incident where you had to show your leadership skills, why are you leaving academia (I had just finished my PhD) for consulting? After that, there was a case study. I did not get to the next stage mainly because this was my second interview and I did not have the experience to structure my answers in the case study (this was my feedback, I needed more practice). It is all about practice...the more case studies you practice, the better the chances.   Frage beantworten

    Really did not like the interviewers, were acting very snobbish, but I guess that differs per person and per company. Had a stress interviews with a couple of people in the room present.
