    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Charlottesville, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Had a first round on-campus interview. The interview consisted of two rounds, each with one analyst. Each round had two parts: A PEI and a Case. The PEI was relatively standard, as was the Case. As someone who does not have a case consulting background, I found the case portion very difficult, especially the "mental math" portions. But the interviewers were very nice and understanding.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    You start with an SAT style test with questions you have not seen since high school. Then you have an short interview with local staff person. The local staff were very nice and professional. It goes downhill once you have to have a second interview with a staff member in NYC. The NYC staff are very arrogant and condescending. They don't believe a single thing you say and make snide comments about what you say. Hardly discussed the job and were extremely hostile during the process.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back 3 weeks later. I was given 48 hours (recommended) to 7 days take the SHL test. Very intense test if you don't make time to prepare adequately for it. Content is easy but you have to work on your time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company.

    Interview

    Met recruiter from McKinsey Solutions at an on campus career fair and she followed up with a phone screen. Took an online assessment test and had a phone interview with a manager. Next interview was a 3 hour Skype interview. It consisted of 3 case interviews and 3 PEIs. Went well enough despite the couple seconds of lag time on their videoconferencing software. No offer, was told this was because my stories in the PEI section "weren't strong enough", which was frustrating to say the least.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (New York, NY) in September 2010.

    Interview

    After applying online I received call from HR Manager within two working days. She then sent me link to case interview study material. After 5 weeks she scheduled my further interview. Evening before my interview she called me to tell that interview may not be case interview. It was kind of late to give this kind of information because I was already knee deep into studying case interview and had not really thought about any other kind of questions. On the day of interview manager called me 15 minutes late. Interview was not case interview. It was like any other normal interview. It caught me off-guard. After hardly ten minutes and breaking my speech in between interviewer ended the interview.
