Hi,

I had a HR round interview with bcg last week but I haven’t heard from then since that. Should I consider that they rejected my application?

In your experience, how long until you heard back from their recruitment team?

Thanks!!!

Hi Anonymous,

in general silence for one week is not a good sign - the average successful candidate normally receives confirmation in a timeframe within the next day and one week. Having said that, there may be some reasons why they are delaying the response. I would wait until the beginning of next week and then followup to ask for feedback.

Best,

Francesco

Oh... I see. Well, today will make a week... I’ll keep my fingers crossed and hold tight until next week. Thanks

Hi,

Up to 2 weeks is fine. You can always call or e-mail the HR. She is there to help you with any concerns.

Hi there!

I assume you already got an answer from them, but usually it takes up to 2 weeks.
Contact HR in case of no response for more than 2 weeks.

Cheers,
GB

Hi A,

Well, they usually give a response faster. But they can also wait for the pipeline to be confirmed.

Anyway, feel free to reach out to HR and clear the situation since it's been a week.

Best, André
