I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oliver Wyman.

Interview Details – I come from a non-target school so the interview process happened over the course of 2-3 weeks. I did two phone interviews during the first week -- one case, one behavioral. I received a call back after around 4 days, and flew in for a final round the following week.

Interview Question – I had never done a phone case interview, so it is definitely worth making sure you can communicate clearly over the phone.   Answer Question

Interview Question – fit interview was more just a conversation, a bit of a non-traditional case that was challenging to structure   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Oliver Wyman in February 2012.

Interview Details – Friendly and very thorough interview process. But if you mess up once it really counts even if you recover. They also try to stress you out a bit during the fit interview. But don't panic.

I applied online and interviewed at Oliver Wyman.

Interview Details – There are 2 first round interviews and 3 final round interviews including cv review, around 3 case studies, etc. The interviews are one-on-one and are done by consultants, usually very young. Interviewers are nice and will share their own experiences. Cases are kind of non-traditional and therefore requires little preparation. The HR will give feedback very quickly and the process is smooth.

Interview Question – Some estimation questions related to statistics.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – None

Madrid (Spain)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oliver Wyman in March 2012.

Interview Details – The online test is the hardest ever, but they know that it is impossible to do it all, so do not worry about not completing some questions. However, focus on not getting any wrong questiones.

Interview Question – The persona interview had two parts: the personal one with the HR and the business case with a consultant. The first one was ok, but the business case was not a business case at all. They guy simply asked me "This morning, I have read in a newspaper that an A-380 can be more fuel-efficient that a car. Can you verify if it is truth or not?" Then he left for 15 min and came back with a coffee. I got stuck in some part of the problem, but, since he was not there, no guidance was offered.
Honestly, I did not like the way OW treat people.
