    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Chicago, IL (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online first. Casing interview, video first, and then fly to company for super day. Typical consulting interview process. For best practice, just go over cases and practice with other people. Got offer. Chose another company instead.

    Interview

    1st round: 2 Interviews with 1 PEI and 1 case each. The interviewers were very nice and walked through each case at a moderate pace. It was hard to know if you were doing well or not because of how nice they were to you.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Two interviews in the first round conducted via video conference. The time is slightly longer than the in-person interviews because we have to deal with some technical difficulties.

    The second round has three cases with partners.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company in September 2019.

    Interview

    Quite expected for a problematic company like McKinsey. I only managed to round one, when I was interviewed via Zoom by two interviewers. One interviewer played "the good guy" while the other was a "bad guy." Both seemed disingenuous in their efforts to actually get to know me; the conversation was very formal and never pleasant or friendly.

    Interview

    Two interviews with a Business Analyst and an Engagement Manager. Both interviews included 25 minute behavioral and 25 minute case. In-between the interviews I sat with several new-hires. They talked about office gossip and came up with practical jokes to play on the interviewing candidates. It was a very uncomfortable situation to be in.

    Interview

    Passed all rounds and got to the interview round. First round was great the interviewers really wanted me to succeed and provided valuable feedback. Last round was not so great my interviewer was yawning and was on her phone. That definitely threw me off.
