Role Play at DHL Consulting

Hi all,

in a few days, I have the DHL Consulting Interview Day (the virtual one) and apart from fit questions and cases, DHL Consulting conducts a role play as the last part of the interview day. Does anyone have more information on this what to expect? It would also be helpful to get some tips for this part of the interview day.

Thanks a lot in advance and best regards

Hi, it depends on the interviewer and on the Geography, but on Glassdoor, you can find some useful experience of past candidates with questions and insights.

Hope it hepls,

Hi! I've heard that the role play is part of their fit. So, basically the interviewer plays a role of an internal stakeholder and you need to play a role of a consultant. Here are some tasks, which you could expect:

  • Getting data from the stakeholder
  • Persuading stakeholder to take a certain decision
  • Communicating bad news to the stakeholder

Hope this helps! If you want to discuss in more detail, just DM me. Also, please once you are done with interview, drop me a message and share your experience – thanks!

Daniel
