Summer Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Anonymous Employee
Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Oliver Wyman.

Interview Details

I applied online and was emailed for a phone interview. The process took about 1 month, applied in December and got notified by end of January. I did not have business background, so the interviewer specifically told me that he was not going to ask me very tricky questions. However, it turned out that he specialized in stock market, which I knew little about.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Oliver Wyman in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my campus recruiting website. They came to the university the week before to do a case workshop - it was very helpful, and I recommend going if you get the interview (or if not). The first round was a phone interview, two 25-minute cases, and no fit questions. This may not be the norm however because we had a snow storm that prevented the interviewers from coming to campus. Seems like usually there is 1 fit, 1 case. Cases were pretty straight forward, but got a call at 5 pm that day saying I didn't make it through to the next round - very efficient process

    Interview Details

    Had two sections - behavioral and then case
    Behavioral was rather straightforward, simple fit questions (including why OW?)
    Case was vague, the question was: how does a bank make money?

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Oliver Wyman in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview call from a resume drop on college job board.
    Company invited all shortlisted candidates for a networking session night before interview
    Next day had two 30 min 1:1 case interviews in the afternoon and then got a call in the evening with result
    The interviewers were very friendly and helpful throughout the process. I also received feedback on areas of improvement and reasons of why I wasn't given an offer which was quite helpful. One of the interviewers offered to keep in touch and help prepare cases in the future. Overall I found it to be a good learning experience with the networking event allowing me to interact with atleast 10 different associates and a couple of partners too.

    The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Oliver Wyman in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    First sat a numerical test - the maths was very easy but it's basically impossible to finish all the questions on time, and they penalise you for incorrect answers and I think they reward you for making no mistakes. You need to pass the test in order to move onto the second round, which consisted of a group interview where we had to solve a business case and present it to some consultants, three case interviews and a CV interview. Case interviews weren't too difficult but varied a LOT from interviewer to interviewer - one was more of an informal chat on price discrimination (in relation to Tesco mobile), another just wanted me to do maths. In the CV interview the interviewer presented a case involving a PR scandal and asked how I'd handle the situation, in the role of the director of the firm under (true) accusations - however after talking to other interviewees it seems like my interviewer was the only one who did this.
