Junior Research Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company.

Interview

The first step of the recruiting process consisted of two online verbal and numerical assessment tests. After passing these tests, I had a call interview with a senior analyst about personal experience and general financial knowledge. A few weeks later I was invited to the office for 3 rounds of case interviews.

Overall the recruiting process was an incredible experience. The HR Recruiters and Interviewers at McKinsey really want candidates to succeed and provide you with all the support and information to best prepare for each step. This high level professionalism really makes McKinsey to stand out from other management consulting firms.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Budapest (Hungary)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    1) Problem Solving Test - 60 minutes, easier than a GMAT (I prepared using the examples from their official website)
    2) Case interviews - I had 3 (each on a different day, lasting one hour). First two were structured cases, the last one was less structured and it involved market sizing and guestimate questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Munich, Bayern (Germany)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Sehr angenehm.
    3 Einzelgespraeche mit Reserachern aus dem betreffenden, wie auch anderen Bereichen.

    Jedes Gespraech bestand typischerweise aus Fragen zu meinem Werdegang, einem Erfahrungsgespraech, einer Case-study sowie abschliessender Fragen.

    Die Gespraeche waren sehr angenehm, die Case-studies zielten mehr auf Allgemeinverstaendnis als auf Grosse haendische Rechenkuenste ab.
