    Interview

    Got invited to an on-site interview. Had great conversations with two interviewers talking about personal experience and business situations. The interviewers are genuinely good people and the firm lives up to its good reputation on recruiting process.

    Interview Questions

    • I am not really allowed to say the details of the interviewing questions, but let's just say that when I was talking through a problem I got challenged on a point that I made. I thought I was generating a creative idea and felt good about what I said, but the interviewer disliked my idea and thought it to be conceptually wrong. It was a difficult situation for me.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Madrid (Spain)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The test is quite hard, because of the little time given (26 questions in 60 minutes). The first-round interviews are fun to do, but one must be 100% focused all the time. Every little mistake or doubt can get you out of the process.
