The process took a day - interviewed at McKinsey & Company in July 2010.
Interview Details – Resume drop at school, went to Boston for an Aptitude test and 2 50 minute 1 on 1 interviews with half on a case and half experience.
Interview Question – When did you resolve a conflict within a team? Answer Question
Very Difficult Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at McKinsey & Company in February 2013.
Interview Details – Applied through on-campus recruiting. Two rounds of typical McKinsey interviews (~15 minute fit + ~35 minute case); first round was with an Associate and an EM and the second round was with an EM and Partner. The partner skipped the fit part and only did case.
I got called an hour after both interviews to notify me of their decisions.
Very enjoyable interview process and very warm interviewers.
Interview Question – Cannot disclose, but it was 4 typical case questions very similar to what you'd see in Case in Point (more data heavy though.) View Answer
Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate, it's an internship.
I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at McKinsey & Company in November 2012.
Interview Details – Moscow office HR managers are horrible, breaking every single promise (around 20 of them) they themselves give.
Internship is post-undergrad, and you need to get past PST (test) and 2 interviews to get the offer.
The criteria are not that high. You just have to be reasonably good at cases, and that's it. It is usual McKinsey-style interviewer-led cases mostly making sure you are smart enough, not requiring a lot of preparation (forget hundreds of mock case-interviews and all these frameworks). Just answer the questions in a logical manner and have good business judgement and you'll be fine. Shortly, be smart.
