I've got a phone screen with ZS Associates for a Business Operations Associate Consultant role with a focus on supply chain. Is anyone able to let me know how their interview process is structured? Thanks in advance.

Just went through it for the associate role, for the exact same thing...Business Operations with a focus on Supply Chain. After the phone screen the initial interview is part case, part behavioral with 2 interviewers. Waited a few days before getting notified about scheduling a final round. Final round is approx 5 hours long, you have about 45 minutes to work on a case on your own, a session to review the case with an interviewer, a session to meet with a current Business Operations team member at your level, a session to do an additional case and a behavioral interview. Now I’m waiting to see if it lands me an offer. Out of curiosity, what’s your background like? I feel like I’m on the edge between Associate and Associate Consultant and want to understand the difference better.
