    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting (San Francisco, CA (US)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Target school preference; quick 3-week turnaround; quick-to-respond recruiting staff; typical case interviews; friendly interviewers with creative case questions; practice materials available online; generic frameworks are sufficient so long as candidate has creative and analytical insights; current employees more than happy to chat with candidates or conduct practice interviews

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    A very quick process and they notified me of their decisions promptly which I really appreciated. All of my interviewers were amazing - enjoyable to speak with, interesting, friendly, and made me feel at ease.

    1) Applied online/resume screen: heard back within a week after the deadline to schedule first round interviews through their online platform which was seamless and other companies should do the same.
    2) First round interview: two 30 minute case interviews. One of a regular strategy case and the other was a market size. Neither were extremely hard or tricky but make sure to do some practice ones before your interview. Was notified about final rounds that night via email. I wish they were able to provide specific feedback instead of a generic email.
    3) Final round interview: three 30 minute interviews. One case, one behavioral, and one was a mix behavioral and communication exercise. The case was pretty open ended and I felt that I didn't do well in it since overtime I asked for information, the interviewer couldn't provide me any concrete data. I also didn't complete it, or think I completed it but it was just to see how you think and structure problems. Was notified a few days later that I received an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got selected for a phone interview. There was lots of confusion about scheduling the interview. It was 2 30-minute case interviews. One was strategy and the other was quant. The main problem was lack of time. They also asked behavioral questions for 10 minutes leaving very little time to discuss the case.
