    Whole process took about a month and went really smooth. First completed an online assessment with R and python questions. The second round interview was one case and one technical. Final round was one case, one technical and one data science case.

    Agile Coach Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Remote, OR (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Recruiter got in touch with me to interview. Had a first round of HR interview. Then was passed on to do a technical interview. Got the impression that the interviewer was insecure and kept saying that he was the first ever Agile Coach hired by McKinsey. Did not get a great impression of the interviewer, he kept asking questions without waiting for answer. When the HR called back to give feedback she said I possessed all the technical skills and answered all the questions well but was not a good fit because I spoke about only 1 agile framework, which was UNTRUE. Avoid like plague. Looks like they dont want to hire worthy candidates that are a threat to the interviewer.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Tampa, FL (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Extensive interview process. I was reached out to by a recruiter to apply for the position. I applied and received a response that they would reach out if I qualify. I was asked to take an online assessment about 5 days after. The assessment took around an hour and I found to be a very useful tool in deciphering a good candidate for an EA role or not. I then had a call with a recruiter where they asked "tell me about a time when" questions (about 4 questions). I was then asked not to disclose my current salary and that they are only offering $39,900 for the role with no negotiation. You would be paid $42,200 if you took a later shift like 10-7 or 12-8p shift. At the end of the call I was scheduled to come on site for a group assessment. I also found the assessment helpful in determining candidates. It took place from 9am-12pm. The assessment included individual email prioritization and a group assessment on how you would handle a meeting with multiple issues going on. After that I was reached out to come back for a final individual face to face interview. This consisted of two 30 minute interviews. I have extensive EA experience and found the process to be thorough, but a little much for the position, especially at $39k. I wanted to get my foot in the door with this company and let it be known in my interview that I would like to pursue further career options after the mandatory can't apply for other jobs until after 1 year rule. I don't think they liked that. I think they wanted to have an EA stay an EA. About a week later I was sent an email that I didn't get the job.
