Junior Consultant Interview

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Oliver Wyman in January 2012.

Interview Details

Found offer through campus recruitment site. Applied for an international position and was invited to a telephone interview shortly thereafter. After countless case-phone interviews by consultants that I wouldn't even be working with, I was finally invited to an office for a day of interviews. After passing those, I was invited to an interview day in office that I applied for. Thought it went well but didn't do well in case interview conducted in my non-native language and did not get offer. The interviews themselves were standard cases, but the length of the process I don't believe is cost efficient for them. And time-wise, it's expensive for applicants.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a position as Junior Consultant in June 2014 through the Oliver Wyman website. I completed the online tests (maths and reasoning) one week later. The tests were quite difficult (a lot of the maths questions can be found on the internet beforehand, though). Got a negative answer after 10 days.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and followed up two weeks later after not hearing back. I was told that only one office was hiring at my position and given a phone interview for the Dallas office. Was given a market sizing case on which I did not perform very well. I was contacted within two hours and told that I would not have another interview.

    Application Details

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Oliver Wyman in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Invited for a numerical and verbal reasoning test at the company's offices in London. Each consisted of 30 multiple choice with 20 min time limit. Numerical test much harder than expected (I personally solved only 10 questions). Verbal reasoning slightly easier (solved 22). Passed first stage and invited for a case study interview a week later.
    The interview included talking to two different consultants. Somewhat casual approach from both interviewers so no need to panic.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Oliver Wyman in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interviews themselves were not different from the average consulting interview - 15min competency based questions and 15-30min business case discussion. The tests preceding the first round of interviews are much more difficult that the usual IB online tests. There are no samples on the internet, while the best preparation might be GMAT type of questions with no data interpretation. The test also has negative grading, so my advice is to put a big emphasis on test preparation.
