    2 rounds, one with 2 other interviewees. One at office you're applying to.

    First was in a group of 3 and the interviewer (Program Manager). 2nd was with Partners. Made the 2nd but didn't get an offer. (Reason -- not enough case study prep, a few answers were inconcise)

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    The interview process is straightforward, master business cases and you'll succeed. There are plenty of free ones online to aid your practice. I read and memorized Case In Point and it helps provide a useful beginning framework for thinking about things, although you shouldn't just repeat the canned responses from the book

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Atlanta, GA (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Overall the hiring process was great until my final interview with the partner. He really didn't give me a lot of opportunity to demonstrate my skills and I feel like his questions were really out of left field. All my other interviews were extremely positive so my feeling is that his impression had a significant impact on the result of the interview.

    The notification after the interview wasn't great. The recruiter called me in a rush to tell me I wasn't being extended an offer and was clearly in a hurry to get off the phone, even when I tried to ask about feedback. It took her a while to get back to me, but we had a fairly constructive conversation over a month after my final interview about how I could improve. Overall, I appreciate her time but it would've been helpful earlier on so I wasn't so far removed from the experience.

    All in all, a good interview process and they do a lot to make you comfortable and the people are incredibly nice. Just be prepared for it to not go exactly as you expect, especially with the partners.
