    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Oliver Wyman in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through on-campus recruiting. Was chosen for a first-round interview which took place on campus. The interview Was an hour long. First half hour was the case interview with a consultant. It was an interesting profitability framework case. The second half hour was a behavioral interview with a different consultant.
    The interview process was great. Everyone was nice and friendly. They got back to me the same day offering constructive criticism and ways I could improve for future interviews.
    The entire process seems to be very fast and efficient. Apparently, the entire process from first round interview to an offer takes a week.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Oliver Wyman in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process began with a quantitative aptitude test (conducted online), which was straightforward and tested high-school level math skills. I continued on to one case-based interview (conducted by phone), which was also straightforward. I was invited to continue on to another case-based interview, but decided not to pursue the opportunity further. Overall, everyone I dealt with was pleasant and helpful.

    Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Oliver Wyman in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was asked to take an online math test that was easy but quite lengthy given the time allotted - I suspect that accuracy, not finishing was key here as I did not come anywhere close to finishing but still managed to snag a phone interview.

    The first phone interview was a garden variety case study, and they called me up later that day to tell me that I would be proceeding on to the second round phone interview, and plenty of feedback was provided. One annoying feature to all of this is that you are given very little notice before setting up the interview times, which can be difficult to manage if you have a full-time job. The second phone interview was a great case study involving market sizing and a bottoms-up approach to calculating the margins on a retail business. Fantastic stuff.
