Vorstellungsgespräch

it was long, it took about 6 months. I had 3 interviews in total of 1 hour each. Some people get 5+ interviews. In the past they used to do a initial test with GMAT-like questions, that is no longer the case in the San Jose office.

    It was a long process. I first spoke with the recruiter, then a phone interview with a team member, and then three case/PEI interviews. Overall, it was a good experience to go through.

    Ich habe mich über eine Hochschule oder Universität beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei McKinsey & Company (Waltham, MA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I was contacted by McKinsey's HR after being selected via campus portal.

    The initial HR representative I spoke with scheduled a 1:1 phone interview with another recruiter - this recruiter failed to call during the scheduled time. She reached out and asked to reschedule after about 40 minutes after the call was supposed to take place. I responded and asked what times/dates would be good for her - she never responded. I reached out again, no response. I then reached out to the initial HR representative I spoke with, and after a day, she put me back in touch with the same second HR representative. That HR representative then emailed me and asked what dates/times I'd be available to interview, I responded, then I heard nothing back. I sent a follow up - no response.

    This was disappointing and bit unprofessional. If you're pursuing a career in research, I would advise you to look somewhere else.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 6 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Mai 2017 bei McKinsey & Company (Waltham, MA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Four step process
    1. Initial phone screen with HR recruiter. 30 minutes long. I was asked to explain why I was interested in this position and my prior professional experience.
    2. Two 45 minute phone interviews with a member of the team and the hiring manager. Again, explain background and why interested in the position.
    3. Two one-hour in-person interviews. One hour was with the hiring manager and the second hour was with a member of the team. First 15 mins were mostly fit questions and why I was interested in the position. Final 45 mins were spent on case studies. PREPARE for the case interviews! I practiced about 20 case study interviews prior to my real interview.
    4. Final round was a 30 minute phone interview with the Senior Partner of the practice. This part of the interview was very relaxed and felt more like a "rubber-stamp". The Senior Partner really wanted to know specifically why I was interested in the position and where I wanted my career to progress into.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Phone introduction, followed by first round interviews, which consisted of 3 sections of behavioral type questions and a case study.
    Final round interviews had the same format with senior McKinsey personnel, who had the expectation that you would get better through each round.
    There is an emphasis on how successful you are at the case study. Be sure to be organized and thorough, taking care to explain any thought process aloud.

    It was not the most structured because I joined as an experienced hire. You do get to know a good amount of people in the group before you need to accept/decline.

    • An impromptu case interview. But honestly do not worry about it because I don't think this was part of the normal process and I don't think they were being very strict in terms of getting everything perfect.   Frage beantworten

    Interviewed with a senior research analyst. The conversation started off with the typical "walk me through your resume". They were interested in knowing about past programming experiences, as well as general knowledge of current events. It took about 30 minutes in total.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The first round of interview consisted of two parts: one 15-minute excel test and one 15-minute interview with two senior research analysts from their waltham office. Overall, the interview process was very pleasant. Interviewers were nice and they were really interested in knowing more the candidate instead of merely asking questions they have prepared in advance

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 3 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2013 bei McKinsey & Company (Waltham, MA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online at the McKinsey site for the NAKC generalist research analyst. Received email asking to set up a phone interview with HR. Quick 15 mins reviewing my resume, asking salary requirements; HR made sure that I knew that this is NOT a consulting role and asking me to go to my nearest McKinsey office to take the McKinsey PST. PST is tough but you are given a study guide and there are 3 practice tests on the McKinsey site to help you prepare.

    After passing the PST you are invited to a first round interview that consists of interviewing with 3 researchers of various levels. Very structured process...1. deep dive into your resume 2. specific question asked regarding some experience/leadership/ambiguous situation and you have to walk through STAR method style. Details are KEY!. followed by a short typical strategy consulting case.

    After passing round 1, invited to round 2 (final round)....similar to round 1 except with managerial level people.

    Process dragged a bit but was kept in the loop so communication was great during the process. You will face roughly 6 cases and 6 resume deep-dives.

    Overall a pretty thorough process and seems similar to the consulting side except the bar maybe a bit lower but it is still high.

    Negatives: Location very unlike other McK offices. Feels like you are an 'after-thought.

    Positives: if you want to move to the consulting side bad enough, you can do it through research if you excel and put in the hours. Free drinks/snacks. Young and diverse office though the feel is definitely different than a McKinsey consulting location (people and atmosphere wise).

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • Know your resume, experiences, how to do arithmetic/math with paper/pencil under pressure. The cases from a strategy point of view are not too tough.   Frage beantworten
