consultant interview questions shared by candidates
You begin working on a case with a client in an industry that your boss is an expert in. You have a meeting coming up tomorrow with the client but your boss drops out last minute due to an emergency. You know next to nothing about the industry or the case. What do you do?
It is too late notice to reschedule the meeting. I would learn as much as I could about the industry and the case in the time available. I would enter the meeting presenting him/her with what I have come up with and be confident in my recommendations to reassure the client. It would be disrespectful to the client to show up to the meeting with nothing despite the circumstances.
How long did it take you to hear back?
They took around 3 days to respond after 1st round, and about 2 weeks to respond after final round.
We sit down at a round table with an infinite pile of quarters. We'll take turns putting one quarter down, no overlapping allowed, and the quarters must rest flat on the table surface. The first guy who can't put a quarter down loses. If you go first, you can guarantee victory. Explain how.
