How do MBB firms pick which type of case to give to candidates who interview on the same day? I am particularly interested in how Bain and BCG choose what cases to give out to candidates. Is it up to whoever is interviewing? Or, do firms agree to give a same case to all candidates who get interviewed on the same day and get different cases on the next round based on the first round? Does one interviewer interview all candidates on the same day or do they have different interviewers for different slots? How do firms standarize the level of different cases that are given out to candidates who are intervieweing for the same position?
I ask with a plenty of understanding that yes, life is not fair. You take what you get and you are the one who can make a difference by figuring out how to respond to what's given to you! It never hurts to know what to expect on the day of interviews though. In addition to clarifying my questions above, if you have any other tips on what to expect on the day of your case interviews, feel free to share. Thanks!
