    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Paris (France)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I went through the first round of interviews in my MBA's campus and then final round in the local office where I was applying. The first round (2 1hour interviews with cases) was challenging but overall it was a fun and helpful experience. Final round took many hours, 4 interviews and two written tests (written tests are not common in McKinsey final rounds, it was just the case at that specific office)

    Interview Questions

    • Fit questions were very specific and detailed. The most common theme was leadership experience and personal impact.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Paris (France)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview is a 40% - 60% split between personal fit and business case. In the fit portion they ask you about past achievements, leadership and personal impact. Instead of asking multiple questions on different topics, they tend to hone in on one answer and ask follow up questions so know your story inside out!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company.

    Interview

    1st Round Interviews: two 45min sessions. Each session included (i) Fit and (ii) Case.

    1st Session: Regarding the fit, my interviewer asked me for a specific experience in my CV. The challenge was to use that story to transmit the values McKinsey is looking for. The case was a specific case regarding a Pharma company.

    2nd Session: Same as with the first interviewer. This time they also used a Pharma case, but there were no numbers. It was all conceptual.

    Interview Questions

    • Case: Big pharma company wants to buy a smaller pharma company. Assess the strategic fit.   Answer Question
