    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris +3 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à McKinsey & Company (Palo Alto, CA (États-Unis)) en juin 2016.

    Entretien

    Very fair, extensive with 3 rounds: phone screen w/ case, in-person 1st round, final round. Phone screen with case was fairly standard except it was a little difficult over the phone. The in-person interview involved a virtual interview followed by an in-person interview. Both interviewers were professional, although the more junior interviewer was very difficult to understand given his thick accent and he had difficulty understanding me.

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à McKinsey & Company (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en août 2011.

    Entretien

    Consisted of an HR interview with a recruiter which went very well. The recruiter asked basic questions about me and my professional background. The next round was a phone interview with a consultant. It was a case study. The questions was relatively simple. Unfortunately my quantitative speed was not up to snuff.

    J'ai postulé via un établissement de l'enseignement supérieur ou universitaire.. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à McKinsey & Company (San Francisco, CA (États-Unis)) en janvier 2007.

    Entretien

    Multiple rounds of case-based interviews. Each round was comprised of 2-5 one-on-one interviews with current McKinsey consultants, and each interview consisted of both fit/culture and business case questions.

    With only a few exceptions, the case questions were based on actual client projects the consultants worked on. The cases ranged from telecom CRM strategy to ERP implementation valuation; all were tough in that the interviewers asked penetrating questions.

    On premises interview following successful CV. Competency based followed by technical assessment of a management consultant situation. Interview in London. Pleasant personnel. Difficult questions. Hosted prep questions prior but the actual questions were harder

    Entretien

    First, I did an online test (mostly math problems), then I was selected for an interview day. We did a test and a case study - it was about a museum that wanted to generate additional revenues. Then I had an interview with a senior manager from CEE. He did not ask me technical questions. Just behavioral.

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris 4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à McKinsey & Company en octobre 2011.

    Entretien

    First screen interview was great! Very cordial recruiter and very professional. The second round "case study" interview was bizarre. I was spot on with my quantitative analysis and other aspects of the case study. However, the interviewer played the "break him down" down game with me. As a former attorney I was not easily thrown off by the interviewer's attempts to get under my skin. And the more calm I remained, the more abrasive the interviewer became. Needless to say, despite my accuracy and professional demeanor, it was a no go according to her. Can't say I am terribly disappointed.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à McKinsey & Company en novembre 2010.

    Entretien

    Day 0: Attend campus recruiting session. Submit application to APD program (Advance Professional Degree- ie everything above a bachelors but not MBA).
    Day 7(ish): Show up to local McKinsey office and take written test. 40-some questions in 40 minutes. All are case-based, lots of reading, no one ever finishes the whole thing. Then do three "practice" cases in teams of four with different consultants.
    Day 8-9: Hear back and schedule 2nd round. Get contacted by "buddy" who answers question on process and lifestyle.
    Day 12: Get contacted by partner in Cleveland office, get asked to consider putting Cleveland as top pick (hint, hint: it'll make you more likely to get an offer).
    Day 13: Put San Francisco as top offer. Attend case workshop on campus.
    Day 18(or so): 2nd round interview in local office. 3-4 case interviews 1-on-1 with different consultants/associates. Great conversation, interesting people.
    Day 18-19: Hear back and schedule 3rd round in San Francisco.
    Day 30?: Fly to SF, have dinner with non-interviewing consultants (most new and APD) in private room at restaurant. Everyone's friendly, helpful and encouraging.
    Day 31(?): 3 1-on-1 with associates and a partner. Flub third interview, make math interview in 2nd one, nail 1st one. Lunch with other candidates (half are really cool and nice, half are giant tools).
    Day 32: Fly home, get a bad call.

    Overall I was impressed with the professionalism and courtesy shown to me at every stage. Frankly, as my first real interview I had no expectations of advancing and was happy to get a free trip to San Francisco, talk to some smart people, and learn a lot about business. Throw in the invaluable interview-mentoring (that helped me nail my interviews at a competing firm) and I see no downside to at least applying.

    A few things stood out, especially after interviewing elsewhere. First, the almost OCD attention to detail. In an actual case, there's getting things right and there's getting things precise. McK has a reputation for automatically knocking candidates that make a quant error oof any magnitude. In my case, maybe it was enough (I multiplied by 2/3 instead of 3/2); but ultimately other firms are more concerned about seeing the nature of the problem and coming up with creative solutions. I clearly was good at math in all my other interviews, but that one mistake cost me. When the interviewer called to relay the bad news, he told me the vote was 2-to-1 for but that the math error cost me the spot, then he said it was a ridiculous reason to not hire me.

    Second, the endless march of bureaucracy in hiring. I mean look at that schedule. An in-office test, practice sessions, three rounds of interviews. It takes a ton of time and puts some strain on you while waiting/prepping. McK needs to work on streamlining their process: at my current firm students take the test online, do the first round within a week, and then three days later do an in-office final with a decision by that night. Maybe it's the cache of McK, but for a firm in the business of finding efficiency, the process could use some.
