Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madrid (Spain)
No Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Madrid (Spain)) in April 2016.

Interview

Firstly, I had to do a test. I recommend to practice those which are in their website and look for webpages for preparing this test. After I passed it, I was invited to their offices to do two interviews. Each interview consisted of typical personal questions and a business case. One of the business case was about a cosmetic company and the other one about a welfare organization.
