    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan McKinley (Singapore (Singapore)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted an online CV to the COO, was called down for a face to face interview the very next day. I thought the chat went okay, but then there was no reply after this. I thought there could at least be a rejection email or something, I did email to enquire about the outcome but there was no reply. I felt that I really liked the role and the company, so it's really disappointing for me. I hope they at least tell you you weren't selected or something.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan McKinley (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    After applied directly to the online system, I got an e-mail from the HR in Sydney within a few days and that led to the phone interview within two weeks. I was then invited to have a couple of one on one interviews with several Managers and their team members in the Hong Kong office. All of them were very friendly, professional and eager to know more about me. Each meeting lasted for more than one hour and I was encouraged to ask them questions. Many teams are hiring at the same time so each of they tried their best to explain to me what they do specifically so candidate can think about which area they like. It just became very natural to ask more questions from both sides and the conversation became more and more engaging. In a nutshell, I like the vibe and the people of the company very much.

    People are very friendly, informative, and caring.

    Throughout the interview process, they repeated followed up on interviews with phone calls, and messages to answer any questions I had and provide feedback.

    From this I gleaned a very straightforward representation of the industry, and actual job duties with both pros/cons well covered.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tokyo (Japan)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Morgan McKinley (Tokyo (Japan)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I initially applied through the website and in a few days time, received a telephone call from an internal recruiter. Later I had several one-to-one interviews with several members of the team in person, ranging from Managing Director to Consultants. This lead to two different assessment days where several of my skills were tested through tasks, which an Associate Consultant would be expected to undertake as part of daily routine. Later I was made an offer, which I gladly accepted.

    The whole process took nearly 3 months and several interviews. However, the experience was very positive as the staff were really friendly, understanding and made sure to give me insight to the recruitment industry. I find it a blessing in disguise as now, I have a greater knowledge about the subject than I did 3 months back. It was a win-win situation.
