    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    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.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through Campus recruiting. There were two 30 minute interviews back to back. First one was case and the other was behavioral. This was both the first and final round of interviews. Both interviewers were friendly.

    No real surprises. Just a general set of fit questions and a typical case question.

    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

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process took a very long time and 5 months after I interviewed for the position, I am still waiting to hear back (except I am not waiting and found a better job). Despite contacting and chasing initially for a decision and feedback I kept being told there was "no news" by HR. Complete waste of my time and hope they do not do this to others.
    I have also seen they have re-advertised the position on LinkedIn as of a few months ago, they should at least have the courtesy to inform candidates when they are unsuccessful and I am glad I did not end up working for a company that treats candidates this way.

    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.

    • Standard case questions. Delivery skill varies so be prepared to work around that live.   Answer Question
