    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    2 virtual interviews, first with consultants (two interviews back to back), second with 3 partners (3 interviews). Cases and a personal question in every interview. Everyone was super friendly, and I was able to do multiple practice cases with various McKinsey people.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Had a phone call with a recruiter, then a practice case call with a consultant. I dropped out of the interview process early to pursue another opportunity, but everyone I spoke with was very warm and seemed to want me to succeed. The practice case was difficult.

    Interview

    Straightforward and well explained from start to finish. They want you to succeed and will give you all the resources in order to do so.

    Not easy but no surprises... other than the interviewers being unprepared and winging it.

    Interview

    Case interviews were as expected, phone interviews were easy! The process wasn't too hard and much like what I'd expected from reading online about what it would be like. I enjoyed meeting the employees but it wasn't for me.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company in January 2021.

    Interview

    Four cases and PEI in a row. Applied through business school, and networking really helped push me to get an interview. It was an office specific interview, and was held with four partners across zoom.

    Interview

    2 interviews on first round.
    PEI+Case
    PEI+TEI
    Coaching session previously is actually not that useful if u have some basic idea about what an case interview will look like.
    PEI worth a lot time to prepare, be ready is more details are required.

    MBA Interview
    1st Round: 2 interviews; both structured as Personal Experience Interview and a business case.

    Final Round: 3 interviews; same structure

    Overall, interviewers (a combination of recruiters, consultants, and partners) were friendly and straightforward.

    I think the virtual assessment or any assessment is a barrier to the application process. The virtual assessment was challenging but like a video game that was sort of fun.
