Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman in October 2015.

Interview

First round phone interview. It was a conference call. 30 min case interview with one person and 30 min fit interview with another person. The person who did the fit interview was not interested in the whole interview process or my experience at all and seemed to just read out from a list of questions and want to get over it as quickly as possible. And then I never get contacted about the result again.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman (Houston, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was an on-campus interview, 30 minutes of behavioral and 30 minutes of case. It is back to back, so there is no guarantee whether you get case or behavioral first. One of the interviewers was nice, the other didn't seem very engaged during the interview, kept looking at his phone or elsewhere. I'm not sure if it was a stress test or he was just being rude.

    Interview Questions

    • Case is straightforward, profitability question, behavioral asks you about leadership, passion, self-initiative, etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman (New York, NY) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Found offer through campus recruitment site. Applied for an international position and was invited to a telephone interview shortly thereafter. After countless case-phone interviews by consultants that I wouldn't even be working with, I was finally invited to an office for a day of interviews. After passing those, I was invited to an interview day in office that I applied for. Thought it went well but didn't do well in case interview conducted in my non-native language and did not get offer. The interviews themselves were standard cases, but the length of the process I don't believe is cost efficient for them. And time-wise, it's expensive for applicants.

    Interview

    After submitting the online application with CV and cover letter, Oliver Wyman ask you to complete an online numerical test. Probably one of the toughest numerical tests there is and is definitely worth preparing for it. (questions are somewhat similar to GMAT numerical style questions).
    The first round interview then consists of one normal CV type interview and one open case study interview

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oliver Wyman (Istanbul (Turkey)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    After a mathematical test they call me however I learned that because of limited time they didn't evaluate everybody's application I was lucky in that sense. Environment was great they were really nice and polite with business attire. Competition is really great therefore I recommend serious preparation process. I interviewed with two person each lasting 20-30 minutes.

    • The numerical test was very similar to a GMAT test. I prepared for it by reviewing by GMAT books. The time is very limited for this test. The other test was not that difficult for me.   Answer Question
