    First round of interview is 2 back to back Behavioral + Case, and PST. Only one behavioral question with each interviewer. Didn't have much follow up questions. But seem to be different depending on interviewer. Very friendly, def not stressful one. case is okay, but have detailed maths.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company.

    Interview

    Applied online and HR reached out within a few weeks to schedule all tests and first rounds. HR was incredibly helpful and patient with my questions. After the first round they reached out the same day providing the feedback for the next round. All rounds had the same structure and tested the same concepts. This was an incredibly positive interview experience!

    • The first round consisted of three one hour interviews with different people back to back, each consisting of personal experience and a case study.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company in January 2018.

    Interview

    I wasn't prepared, so I failed it. I would recommend preparing more before going there. Now I'm preparing to the second try. As I know, you need to solve at least 20-30 cases before going to the interview and it can take 4-5 weeks.
