Great process. Very very efficient!
Applied online as well as flagged my resume through a current employee. Got a call after 4 days by the HR.
First phone screen by HR about resume.
Then, 2 phone interviews back to back. One fit and one case + industry knowledge
Final round had one fit, one panel discussion and one 1:1 case interview.

Great process. I really liked the people I met. Although i was looking for a specific industry they tested by consulting skills across they board along with asking industry specific questions to gauge my knowledge

    By far the most professional and efficient company I have interviewed with yet. I went through an initial screener with a partner, who then put me in touch with HR. I then took an online qualitative test and got past that. Next, they schedule a case interview over the phone with a Sr. Consultant. After getting past that step, I had another case interview over the phone, this time with a manager. Both cases were pretty straight forward and I was surprised to see how little math each of them had. After that, they scheduled the final round interview on site. This consisted of 4 different interviews, 2 case and 2 fit. The fit were very basic with no real surprises or hard questions. However, the cases were VERY specific to the healthcare industry for which I was interviewing. One was inpatient operations and the other population health. Having never worked in either of these settings within the healthcare industry, I struggled with each of them. In the past, every case interview I have done was set up in a way that you did not have to be familiar with the industry they take place in. However, I don't see how someone could have got through either of these without having prior knowledge or experience in the field. I got the call about 3 hours after the final interview and was told I wasn't getting an offer. Very disappointing, but I can respect the speed at which they moved and OW's HR staff actually responding to emails and correspondence.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Oliver Wyman in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview process for an experienced hire is (1) a round with an HR representative, (2) a final round of 3+ interviews. They are playing with the interview structure a bit (more a panel), but you can expect an all fit interview (regular interview questions) and a case interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Case interview questions are specifically geared to be logic based than test background knowledge. There are no brain teasers, no quick mental math, or "how many golfballs in a boeing.." questions. Case questions do ask you to be structured in your thoughts and analysis.   Answer Question
