Candidature

J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris +4 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à McKinsey & Company en décembre 2018.

Entretien

The process was long and challenging but ultimately rewarding. I was first contacted by a recruiter. I then had two phone screenings - one with the recruiter and one with a member of the team. After that, I was asked to apply with a cover letter, resume, and coding sample.

Then came a series of 5 interviews. The first one was just 30 minutes - it was similar in style to a case interview but more heavy on data science and within my field of expertise. Then came two 1-hour long interviews over video. The first one was almost exclusively a data science case. The second one was the classic personal experience story / business case combo.

Then, for the final round I had two more interviews. The first was in person and the second was over video. They were both the personal experience / business case interview style.

In a way, the interview process is much more challenging than many interviews because you need to problem-solve and think through solutions on the fly. However, in another way, the interview is easy in the sense that McKinsey is incredibly straightforward with what they want from you. They provide tutorials on the process and clearly spell out what is expected from you. They even set me up with a one-on-one coaching session with an ex-McKinsey employee so that I could get feedback on my case interviews. At times I certainly felt like I was a round peg that they were trying to jam into a square hole, as I don't have any business experience and was asked to solve business cases. However, in the end, it all worked out. I got an offer and am very pleased with the outcome.

    Entretien

    Applied through online and asked to interview within a week. I did a phone screening interview. The first impression was not good, it seems the recruiter did not check which position she was interviewing for. Overall, it was ok.

    Entretien

    Got in touch with me after i posted my resume on the career site. Initial phone screen followed by a practice round of case interviews. Another 2 case interviews on the phone, then a kind of functional interview, then round 1 on-site which were 4 interviews. Then final round on site with again 4 interviews.... Exhausting process but wonderfully helpful folks. Too bad i wont have a chance to work with them.

    Very standard McKinsey interviews. Cases are very well structured and challenge you on the content but do not try to trick you in any way - very much like real life situations. Your clients are typically not trying to trick you during a project

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +8 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à McKinsey & Company (Londres, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en août 2017.

    Entretien

    3 rounds
    1 - telephonic case interview
    2 - 3* in-person interviews

    Terrible experience.. one interviewer clearly was not interested in the interview. She gave a bad review, the third interview was very industry specific. It could be answered better with prior experience.
    Their recruitment process is long and they do not provide good feedback. Just basic feedback like: communication, structuring, problem solving. It isn't helpful at all.
    There should be a check on the power one of the interviewers have (due to her position) on the selection of a candidate. Expected more of the company, if they grill the candidates so much, they ought to atleast give detailed feedback.

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris 3 jours. J'ai passé un entretien à McKinsey & Company (Singapour (Singapour)) en janvier 2015.

    Entretien

    The interview process was grueling - first round was a 26 question test. Was every bit like GMAT! 2.5 minutes per question!

    The interview rounds were also pretty aggressive. Requires the interviewee to tackle up to 2 cases solving it end to end with a pitch! I will recommend some consulting interview practice to anyone who is interested. This will be the most effective performed with someone who is in the practice.

    Went through a referral. First was a recruiter screen followed by a phone case (2 weeks later). 2 weeks after that I had my first round which included 2 1:1 with EMs and a PST. Both interviews included a case and a fit portion. For the final round, it was with 3 Partners. Very interesting interviews with a healthy mix of cases, experience examples, hypothetical situations as well as helpful information form the interviewers. Also coaching sessions before the phone case and before the final round were very helpful.
