Bewerbung

Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 1 Tag. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Oktober 2015 bei Boston Consulting Group (Chicago, IL (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

Vorstellungsgespräch

Applied the ADC, and got the 1st round case interview. The interviewers and HR were very friendly. However, since I did not prepare well and was very nervous, so I did not get the 2nd round. So I have to wait for another two years before applying for another BCG position.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied through an on-campus recruiting event and was invited for their 1st-round interview a month later. There were 2 45-min interviews consisting of 15-min fit and 30-min case. I got to the 2nd round which had essentially the same format as the first one but the interviews were a lot more intense - longer fit portions and one of my cases was quite unusual.

    My advice:
    * Fit - relax, relax, relax (that way you can think on your feet while being bombarded with unexpected questions).
    * Case - focus on the core issue of the case and be very flexible with your framework.

    The interview process is very well organized. It is exactly what you would expect from a top 3 consulting firm. The first interview consists of 2 fit/case studies, and the second consisted of 1 fit/case and 1 fit/written case. My one suggestion is to watch your time on the fit portion because they will not interrupt you and it can bleed into your case time!

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2011 bei Boston Consulting Group (Houston, TX (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    BCG Contacted me about my interest in working for them.. Had an initial phone screen which went on very well. The first round was very theoretical cases about retail industry and O&G industry.

    I have over 13 years in O&G / Power areas and was really only interested in Energy industry consulting.

    The retail cases was a theoretical one which I didn't too well. The O&G case I did well... I moved to the next round.

    In the 2nd round all cases involved all cases not connected to Energy Industry. I thought I did ok on them but got feedback that I needed to structure cases better and be able to assimilate data on the fly.

    The feedback sounded too theoretical for me..

    Since I like the energy industry, I have since realigned my search to mainly focus on Energy Industry consulting or other firms in Energy Industry. I see myself in the medium term taking a leadership role in Energy Industry and I feel that broadening out my career with Mgmt consulting (Mck, BCG, Bain, Booz) will thin me out rather than focus me into energy.

    I think the hiring practices of the typical mgmt consulting companies is focused on hiring fresh starry eyed MBAs rather than experienced hands.

    Smart people will succeed anywhere though. The selective companies have more smart people than most other companies...

    Did not feel as if they wanted to hire me. They made me wait 30 minutes after the scheduled time to for the interview. There was no reason for the delay and it seemed I was a distraction to their day. Not a great feeling when you were excited abou the role.

After the interviews was the computerised Potential Test; calculator was permitted. Positive feedback and progression provided before end of day.

    Final pair of case interviews with 2x Partners. Same format as before, although cases and questions were much more unstructured requiring deeper thinking compared to earlier.

    Feedback and successful recruitment were only provided 3-4 days after the final interview. Formal offer was sent next day.

    It was a fair process. The employees are quite helpful throughout the whole process. Once I got shortlisted, a couple of current BCG employees were assigned to help me prepare for the phone interview (initially) then for the in person case interviews.

    Total six interviews: three rounds involving two 45min interviews at each subsequent round. Each interview comprises 10-15 mins fit questions followed by a case, followed by an opportunity to ask questions of your interviewer.
    TIP: Be prepared in advance. It is typical for you to have your interview the day after being phoned so there will be no time to prepare once you are offered an interview.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • Lots of superlative style questions:
      Tell me about a single event at [x company] that defines your experience there?
      What was the best thing you did at [x company]?
      What do you think will be the biggest change transitioning from [current environment] to ours?   Frage beantworten
