    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Coimbatore (India)).

    Interview

    Interview was a long and tedious process spanning an entire week. But what hit me the worst was the thinly veiled congratulatory message at the end of the interview which made me hopeful that I landed the job. They said they would let me know in few days. Most candidates were told the same except a handful who were hired on the spot (I've to assume these were done by the senior HR). After a long wait, no intimation was given to the rejected candidates. Only the ones selected were notified by mail and the placement officer after 2 weeks informed the selection was complete. Only then I got to know I was rejected. McKinsey is an amazing place to work at especially for a fresher but I'm sure they can improve their communication post the interview.

    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.
