Can anyone at BCG fill me in on what a first round, thirty minute phone interview might entail? Seems too short for a case, so I’m thinking just a screen with fit questions? Thank you!

As far as I know we don’t do any first round interviews by phone. Certainly not in the US.

Thanks. Very strange. Everything in the email seems professional/appropriate (doesn’t seem like a scam) including the signature in the email block. Maybe it’s just a screen and not a true interview? I’ll update if/when I hear back.

If it’s HR, it’s prob resume questions at most. But for what it’s worth, Mck gave me a case over our 30 min phone call. First interview

It’s more than likely the HR screening call. They did do a 30 min phone interview with me. Went over what the role implies and double checking your experience

I did a one hour screening call to discuss their and my experience, situation at BCG, opportunity etc... I did it with a Consultant in the role I was applying for. Godspeed

Makes sense. I applied for two roles with them; I believe this is the one that is actually internal. Still interests me a lot though. Thank you for your replies!

I just started as an auditor in PA and am getting interview requests form non accounting firms for finance related roles. Does it make sense to consider these kinds of positions before making senior? These roles are for almost double my current salary and seem to have better benefits. Would leaving now and not making senior make future career moves more difficult? Anyone here left public before senior, how did that play out?

I just don’t understand how it’s normal that it’s expected that you make presentations and work for free— just to have someone take a huge shit on you.
