Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Boston, MA) in January 2016.

Interview

Attended leadership conference, was offered interview and interview coach to help prepare for the case. Interview coach was extremely helpful, videochatted 3x to do a practice/ prep interview. Coach was an alum of my college.
Interview was very typical. You are there for three separate 45 minute interviews. Each beginning with the behavioral questions, working in teams, what role do you play on a team etc.
The case portion is more difficult and the first case was very easy and the second case was much harder. In between interviews, you sit in the waiting room and chat with consultants

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (London, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was a standard fit interview and a case study. The interview was quite rigorous - the interviewer asked me detailed questions on my resumé and past experience that is relevant to McKinsey, and behavioural questions. The study case was a basic case on profit problems. Just make sure you have practiced your mental math.
