    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)

    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.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tokyo (Japan)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan McKinley (Tokyo (Japan)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I first received a telephone call from the head of talent acquisition, and after I passed the screening I was invited to a one on one interview at the head office. I was then asked to do a report on the Japanese IT industry, I guess as a way of assessing my research abilities. I was happy to do this because I was really interested in the position.

    After impressing with my report I was invited back for a one on one with a team leader where I could learn more about the job and the company. The experience up until this point was very positive and I really wanted to be a part of this team.

    I was invited back one final time for another meeting with some other team leaders, and then I took part in a phone trial which was to last 1-2 hours. This was intended to give me an idea of what a day in the life of an Associate Consultant at Morgan McKinley is like.

    The trial involved me calling a list of companies with the aim of getting the names and phone numbers of department heads or any other useful people. This is where it fell apart for me. I was required to lie, deceive and manipulate people into giving me personal information and I just couldn't do this comfortably. Being honest is the only thing I know how to do and I was so demorialised because I knew I couldn't do this role on a daily basis for a least one year. Combined with being at a standing desk, it just wasn't for me so I walked away.

    I was really disappointed because I was very impressed with Morgan McKinley and the people working there, and I certainly don't regret the experience. I think I have a lot of skills that would make me a good recruiter, it's just a shame that I don't have the ability or mental toughness to get through the cold calling stage.
