Some company’s do if its an S&O type role. I know LinkedIn gave me one

Second this—I did one for two different internal strategy roles at two different companies. I will say that they were a little less involved than you’d see in consulting (not as quant-heavy, etc)

Yes there are companies that use case interviews, especially for strategy and marketing roles with ex consultants (particularly MBB) Source: Personal experience interviewing, my company has adopted, BCG Analysis.

I’ve found only sales and consulting jobs conduct case interviews. Most only do behavioral if any structure is applied.

I’ve been interviewing for Corp Strategy roles and have had to case a few times.

No. I’ve never done one in an industry job before.

Google yes

I wouldn’t say they’re as strict as those conducted in consulting though. I felt the Google ones were pretty chill. The interviewer doesn’t have a fact sheet they’re hiding from you or anything. Kind of felt like they were just winging it on their end too.

Depends on the company. Capital One does some kind of assessment.

I did about a million cases at Capital One for The Strategy Group

Thanks everyone, super helpful!
