    Interview Details

    I've attended to an information session at our college then applied online. There were two rounds of interview, at the first round I had two interviews with an associate partner and an engagement manager. In the second round, I had 3 interviews with an associate partner, engagement manager and a partner. The interviews were typical case interviews although in the first round they asked some 'leadership' questions.

    Interview Details

    It was extremely well organized and was very indicative of the type of work that I ended up doing as an analyst. Went through three rounds - first round consisted of a written exam and the second and third rounds were conducted on site and consisted of three cases each.

    The first step of the process involves a problem solving test sat at the Mckinsey London office. This is a one hour test with just under 30 questions involving qualitative and quantitative reasoning skills. No calculators allowed.

    The second step were first round interviews which were two back to back interviews lasting about 45 minutes each with two consultants. The three main components of the interivew were personal experience interview, case study and some time at the end of the interview to ask questions about Mckinsey.

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at McKinsey & Company in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Really great experience. Once invited to the McKinsey Challenge, you go in the first night for an informal mixer. The second day you're setup into teams and assigned a case to crack. McKinsey consultants are placed in each team room to both help and evaluate you.

    They took us to dinner and curling the second day. Winning team got $750 & a bottle of champagne each.
