Business Presentation Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chennai (India)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Chennai (India)).

Interview

One of the most confusing interviews i've ever attended. The interviewer kept saying this role is not a consultant's (Which i already know) and took sometime to explain the role.After 10 minutes, despite my resume and portfolio clearly mentioning my powerpoint skills amongst others, they chose not to even ask any questions on it.

Then i understood, these guys are not looking for skills. But somethin else.

I had initial bad thoughts on this role, but the interview affirmed it

Never Apply to BPS at MCKinsey.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Coimbatore (India)).

    Interview

    I interviewed through off campus in Coimbatore. It took 3 days and had 6 rounds in total. The first two rounds will test your English grammar, vocabulary and how fast you can type effectively. The third round will be a face to face round which was easy to crack. Just be honest with them. Next came the technical round where they gave 90 mins to present two documents in the form of PPTs. The last round was conducted in Vivanta by Taj. The first face to face was nearly for 1 hour 15 mins. There's nothing to worry about. They'll stress every nook and corner in your resume and ask questions based on that. It's pretty much simpler when you can establish a connection with the recruiter. Honesty is the key. Just be yourself. All the questions will be based on your personal details. Nothing new. The last round was with a HR who gave some 4 situation questions and asked how will I react to them. Then the PPT that I made was discussed. Few questions will be repeated and it'll be tiring. Nevertheless, worth it all!
