I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at A.T. Kearney.

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at A.T. Kearney in February 2012.

Interview Details – This was a rigorous interview, with a full day of discussions with senior team leaders as well as more junior team members who focused on detailing the specifics of their experience with the firm.

Associate Interview

Associate
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at A.T. Kearney in September 2013.

Interview Details – In the first round, there will be 2 one-on-one interviews (case interview + behavioral). The final round will have 2 case and behavioral interviews along with a written case before partners (depending on the office). The case interviews were difficult of course, but manageable if you are comfortable with the case interview process; the written case, however, was very, very hard.

Interview Question – The written case was the most difficult component. You'll be given a bunch of data, and will have an hour to prepare a recommendation before partners who then bombard you with questions that you need to be able to handle deftly.   Answer Question

PAS Analyst Interview

PAS Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at A.T. Kearney.

Interview Details – They came to my campus for interviews. That interview lasted about 45 minutes, and within about a week they contacted me for an office visit. They flew me out to the office and put me up in a hotel really close to the office. After the in-office interview, it took less than a week to get my offer. It was very organized, and very efficient.

Interview Question – On campus interview was mostly behavioral questions. Had one "mini-case" where they just asked me how many of a certain product is sold at all store locations in my city. The answer isn't what matters - they want to hear you work it out and your reasoning for it. They then asked how I could get a more accurate answer with more time.

Office Interview - started with a skills assessment (Excel and Access). That part was pretty easy. There was a lot to do, but they don't expect you to get it all done. That was followed up by 4 interviews with various managers. Asked me pretty basic questions with more "mini-cases." Then I had lunch with other candidates and managers. They then gave me a case study - I had one hour to complete the case and prepare a presentation. The presentation was in front of about 6 people who acted as the client. The case was really easy

Negotiation Details – No negotiation - all salaries are set
