Application

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

Interview

Had an interview on campus followed by an on-site interview. Usually they'll ask you behaviourals before diving into the case study. You do this once with one interviewer, have a 5 min break, and do this again with another interviewer.

    Interview

    This process was very stressful, however, they did a good job of providing you with support throughout the process. They provided you with lots of FaceTime with consultants even if you knew no one at the company. However, it was difficult to find practice cases besides the few on their website that aligned with McKinseys specific style.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Wonderful interview experience. Two interviews during the first round, and three back-to-back interviews for the final round. All interviews included a fit portion (PEI) and a case. My interviewers were kind, and the cases were very collaborative. I would advise candidates to ask for clarification if needed...one of the final round cases included a math question which apparently tripped most candidates up. When I was asked to calculate xx, I had no idea what to do. But I asked for clarification about xx and my interviewer's explanation revealed the next steps very clearly.
