BCG reimbursement

Anonymous A asked on Aug 27, 2018


I have been offered an interview with BCG in one of the North America offices. Its a off cycle recruitment for experienced hires. The recruiter haven't mentioned anything about reimbursement for travel nor food. Is this case for every first round interviews?

They will definitely cover some sort of travel, but it is unlikely they will cover food. On travel, it is worth checking:

1) Class of travel (almost certainly coach/economy)

2) Type of transport allowed (e.g. taxis vs bus)

Make sure you keep all your receipts!

For the first round interviews BCG covers travelling cost without food reimbursment.

All the best,

You should ask the HR for the ticket reimbursement. Usually, they should cover such things.
