    Interview

    One interviewer kept asking about how I displayed leadership through my ethnic background activities. To me, this stuff is personal, and not relevant. My leadership abilities shouldn't be generalized to one part of me.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company.

    Interview

    Applied through the APD pathway and passed the resume screen to RI. RI consisted of two interviews at the regional office and RII consisted of three interviews at the office of choice. All interviews started with questions about a single leadership story/example and ended with a case. All five of my interviewers were incredibly sincere and engaging.

    I had a wonderful experience with the recruiting process. I had to travel for both rounds of interviews and the logistics was easy and low-effort on my end.

    Young Leaders Programmer Fellow Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was very long - almost six months. First is a skills test online. Then they provide three coaching sessions before the first round of interviews, which is two interviews with associates at the country office. This is followed by another coaching session before the final round of interviews with the partners. Overall, it was a rigorous process and the coaches aren’t kind in their teaching approach. One in particular was quite demeaning and patronizing. The partner interviews are completely different from what the coaches teach and from the first round of interviews. I made great connections but I personally did not enjoy the experience.
