    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Kearney (Malaysia) in Sep 2021


    First round: One 45 min case, one 45 min behavioral both with managers
    Final Round: Two 45 min cases with 45 min behavioral in between. (Principal, Partner, Manager respectively)
    Overall very good experience. Interviews were both late on Fridays, and I had calls updating me by noon on the Monday following.

    Cost-saving case first round Profitability and a business situation case second round Complex behavioral questions really dove into STAR method.
