    Attended Boston reception, applied for accelerated process, and finally interviewed at the Boston office, final round, roughly 2.5 hours. Staff was very friendly overall. One of the interviewers did seem a bit uninterested in the interviewing role.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I applied through on-campus recruiting at a target school. Attended a coffee chat with recruiters and consultants and received a first-round interview. They invited us to a small reception near campus, and the people there were great. The first round included two interviews - one case on entering a new market, and a full 30-minute fit interview. The case was with a partner, and she pushed me pretty hard on questions. The fit wasn't bad at all; just a chance to go through my resume.

    Second round was in the Boston office, regardless of which offices you preference. Arrived at 7:45, in the office for three hours. Began with breakfast, then a 30-minute session in which they gave us a case (1 page, front/back) and we had time to prepare our presentation for a later session (which was not immediately after, in my case). Then a one-on-one case (fairly straightforward), a fit, and then the presentation. Ended with an informal Q&A session (non-evaluative). Each session was 30 minutes.

    I received my offer that evening. Base rate is the highest I've seen at this level in the industry, and sign-on bonus is the most generous as well. Overall, great experience, very quick and efficient.

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman (Cambridge, MA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I recruited through my college's recruiting system. I had to take some online math test, you can google it to get a sense of what it might be like, and even though I skipped a lot of questions and wasn't sure about the ones I answered, I still got an interview, so I don't think the test is too important. They paired me up with a buddy who was really friendly who even took time out of his day to give me a practice interview over the phone. On the day of the interview, they probably had about 100 students interview throughout the day, and I had two 30 minute interviews. The first one the guy was not that chill and seemed bored, but the case was pretty easy. The second interview, the lady was really friendly but the case was about healthcare and pretty difficult. They told me later that night at around 7 PM that I had not made it, but gave me good feedback and that I should practice more cases.

    Interview Questions

    • The first interview was about a start up company that paired personal trainers with clients over Skype. They asked what standards they could group the different clientele by.

      The second interview question was about healthcare (which I know nothing about) and was a lot more difficult.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman (Boston, MA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of 2 30 minute back to back case questions. One was extremely open ended and the interviewer guided you through it. The second was purely number crunching. Oliver Wyman really looks for people who can breeze through case questions and really doesn't care much about fit.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    After submitting my application, I had to do a timed numerical test online. There were a lot of questions and I did not complete them all, but managed to snag an interview. First Round interview consisted of two cases. The first case was on what kind of business I would like to open in my college town, and how I would go about it. The second one was trickier, and consisted of market sizing in the context of a health insurance-based case.
