Interview Details –
I had my first round on campus with only 1 person. I was asked to walk through my resume, how I thought the health care bill will affect employers, why Mercer, why consulting, what I thought consulting was about, team work, biggest challenge etc.
I was notified of my second round much much later, but it was 1 day about 2.5 hours with 6 people, two at a time. I was asked about my biggest challenge, a time that I failed, missed a deadline, examples of teamwork, etc. Really great people!
No cases or problems!

She was very easy to talk to, and most of the questions were about my resume/what I had done + a few behavioral/competency questions (tell me about a time you had a disagreement in a group, strengths/weaknesses). We somehow ended up chatting about our weekends and our favorite music bands... so it was a relatively easy interview. have another round of interviews with Mercer coming up soon.
