Hi,

Unfortunately, have no experience with Porsche. But here are some recommendations regarding a case with a presentation:

Here I've uploaded some case samples (Look for BCG wine in a Basket)

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zor4m49eyx5qxal/AABeUN6mtiGkWhEklRjszX2Oa?dl=0

The best way to prepare is the following:

  1. Check if the calculator is allowed. So far it was. If not - you have to train mental math. I posted the main tips here: https://www.preplounge.com/en/consulting-forum/tips-to-do-big-multiplications-in-my-mind-726#a1422
  2. Prepare for a regular case interview - it helps a lot. Basically, prep lounge website is about it
  3. Practice reading cases fast and prioritizing the information. I found useful two sources:
  • Written cases you'll be able to find in google or in case books. I've seen a couple in "Vault Guide to the Case Interview" and "Insead Business Admission Test"
  • Harvard cases - either buy or try to find online. You can find a couple of MIT cases here for free: https://mitsloan.mit.edu/LearningEdge/Pages/Case-Studies.aspx Unfortunately free cases don't have the prep questions.

Good luck!

Hi Adam,

I do not have direct experience with Porsche Consulting, however from what I know from previous candidates the usual process involves the following:

  1. Phone screening with HR
  2. Skype interviews (2x traditional cases or market sizing)
  3. In person interviews (2x traditional cases or market sizing)

You can find below some examples of market sizing:

  • What's the amount of diesel sales for all German petrol stations in a single day?
  • How much in sales does a McDonald generate in a store in Stuttgart's city centre in a day?
  • What's the length of highways in kilometres in Germany?

Hope this helps,

Francesco

As an experienced I had one phone call and the in person interviews.

Phone call was mainly on my story, and you need to tell your story in a way that is consulting-likeable.

The cases are not the usual cases you have with McK, Bain or BCG. Are small, practical and they ask you to present results on a flipchart. No much time to do your thoughts (15 minutes usually), also because they are very easy.

You must be able to provide an added value on your presentation.

As an experienced hire I do not have Skype Calls. My first contact was a phone call with a HR colleague and then I was directly invited to the first round to the headquarter.

More information will follow during October...;-)

Do you have an Update regarding the interview process and questions?

Anonymous on Oct 23, 2017

The interview had 4 parts: CV presentation, a small Case, personal fit questions and own questions. The case was an estimation question with 15 minutes preparation time: How many litres of german wine production is comsumed in Germany. Good luck!
