    Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Oliver Wyman.

    Interview Details

    Candidates selected were invited to a case-cracking workshop at OW's offices. Round 1 was organized and seamless, and consisted of one case and one fit interview. In Round 2, candidates were flown to OW's Toronto office for a superday. Candidates were rotated in and out of a conference room for different types of interviews: an informational 'non-evaluative' n (yeah right) interview, a fit with an analyst, a straightforward case and a presentation case.

    Interview Questions
    • Presentation case: you're given 20 minutes to prepare at the beginning of the superday, after which you're given the chance to present the case to two senior consultants/directors. They walk through the case with you and interject with questions--can be nerve-wracking!   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Oliver Wyman.

    Interview Details

    Company came for on-campus recruiting. Had a first-round interview on campus. Was invited after a few days to the final round of interviews (yes, just two rounds) at their NYC office. First-round interview had 1 case and 1 behavioral question, around 30 mins each. Final round had 2 cases, 1 behavioral and an opportunity to just chat with a consultant about the life at the firm. I think that was really nice - they say that it has no bearing on your assessment, but I can't be too sure. Also, one of the cases is a presentation case, so you have the opportunity to present your ideas to a panel of two consultants after 30 mins of preparation.

    This process started at my university's career fair. I met recruiters and handed them my resume, and then proceeded to apply online.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Oliver Wyman in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first round of interviews was pleasant. However, they used pre-formulated questions that were somewhat behavioral, but not difficult.
    The second round of interviews was when they started asking for negative information from you, such as personalities you worked with in the past, or work activities you dislike doing.
