How long until BCG HR comes back to me?

Anonymous A asked on Sep 07, 2018 - 2 answers


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?

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.



Oh... I see. Well, today will make a week... I’ll keep my fingers crossed and hold tight until next week. Thanks — Aissa on Sep 07, 2018

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