Hi there,

There would be cases as well. Good news is that the fundamental of solving a case remains the same, so if you are preparing for other consulting interviews, those efforts would be worthwhile.

The nuance is that DHL consulting focuses on supply chain and logistics. So it would be good to read up on the basics of this area. Get yourself a bit more familiar with at least some of the basic terms and operations, so you don't get caught off-guard during interview.

Last, read up some case studies, white-papers that they publish on their website, to get a feel of the work they do.

Hope it helps,

Emily

Hello!

You can find info. on the interviews on Glassdoor: https://www.glassdoor.co.uk/Interview/DHL-Consulting-Interview-Questions-E350622.htm

Furthermore. based on a coachee: the interviews are divided into two parts.

  • 1st is about your CV and the stories you need to prepare regarding your behavior within a team.
  • 2nd part is a case interview focusing on the operational part of logistics and supply chain.

Good luck!

Cheers,

Clara
