    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Chennai (India)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I walked in to the office during recruitment. The first round was a 5 minute screening asking me my education background and why i am interested in this position. The second round was a online exam with English, email writing, data interpretation etc. on clearing, third round was a power point presentation where a raw data is given and ppt has to be done according to the instructions. Fourth round was a 30 minute telephonic conversation round where u need to explain your education background in detail. They question each of your academic choice like can i know why you opted for a science background, If u r good at language i might suggest u becoming a good content writer or may i know y u opted engineering background after science group in school.. y not other streams.. the fifth and the final round was a 2 hour long interview where they go into detail of your resume, your skills, suitability to the job and questions on the power point u did in the third round. This interview is done by the manager u might probably work under. My advise is, don't boast or tell anything false. for example, when they ask your favorite author, u must be able to tell some of his books and the story of it. be cool.. They are really very friendly..

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Chennai (India)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    There are totally five rounds.
    1. Inital screening by the HR.
    In this round the HR asked very simple, general questions about why I am planning on leaving my present job and how long is the notice period.
    After this there is a long PPT presentation by one of the HRs, elucidating on the role of the company and the position applied to.
    2. A verbal ability test on the computer.
    3. A power point presentation
    4. Telephonic interview for about 45 mins.
    5. Final face to face interview.
    The first three rounds took place on the same day. It was very appreciative of them to give coupons worth 100 Rupees to be used in the food court.
    The telephonic interview happened after 3 working days, I didn't get through it.
