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.

    Difficult Interview

    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.

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company in October 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process at McKinsey was extremely professional. Everyone I was in contact with gave me immediate feedback and were open to helping me in any way. The interview process is long and tiresome and the cases are challenging but it was a very good experience overall.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company.

    Interview

    Very professional with varied questions. Two consecutive 45 minute interviews in which a case was tackled and cultural fit questions were asked. I found it difficult to determine the interviewers' levels of interest as they were not candid with their emotions.

    Interview

    Firstly they came to our college and showed a 15 min ppt on the company and our job post. Then we had an aptitude test in form of an MCQ. Candidates who cleared this were selected for the interview process.
