    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online (through the website) and was contacted for first round phone interviews (one resume-based and one case interview). The case was very much profitability, and the resume-based was straightforward (Why consulting, most analytical project, leadership, impact, etc) They promptly got back to me the next day, calling me to final round interviews in New York. Final round consisted of 1 case-based interview, 1 resume-based interview, 1 Q/A session with Consultant and 1 case-presentation (with 30 minutes to prepare structure). Format was similar to first round interviews, except that interviewers were more higher up people (principals and partners, as opposed to associates and consultants). Case-Presentation was a bit tricky with the partner interjecting every 30 seconds with questions. Overall people were extremely nice and friendly, and very helpful throughout the process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman.

    Interview

    I didn't get the interview. The company only looks at GPA first to weave out candidates. It is the same with other big consulting firms. The process was really fast though

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Took over six months.

    HR was great. Not so sure the employees understand discrimination. Last round/final round was case where the solution I recommended was more conservative in the sense it was more cautious bc the industry was more cautious. Interviewer deemed me a bad fit for the company because I was "too conservative." Not sure if that follows diversity rules but it sure raised my eyebrows to hear that kind of feedback.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had a first phone interview, about 30 minutes with a recruiter. This was about 15-30 minutes just to go over some HR questions. I then had a 1 hour long phone interview scheduled about 3 weeks later. The first 30 minutes was a case interview and the second 30 minutes was a resume and behavioral interview with a second interviewer. The case interview was the hard part for me, i was able to solve a business case situation but the calculations part was a bit hard. You have to be able to justify your recommendations with accurate numbers, not just an estimate.
