    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at A.T. Kearney (New York, NY (US)) in August 2008.

    Interview

    Interview itself was easy and the case they gave was relatively straightforward for both rounds. The 2nd round interviewer they put in front of me was very inexperienced and could not get over the fact that I was more qualified for the job than she was. Once that became apparent, I've tried to get her past it and get her to move on but it created an uneasy tone for the rest of the conversation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at A.T. Kearney (Chicago, IL (US)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    This was a rigorous interview, with a full day of discussions with senior team leaders as well as more junior team members who focused on detailing the specifics of their experience with the firm. One senior team leader described a model client situation and asked that I provide some ideas of how I might address the client's multiple challenges and what criteria I might select in assessing those challenges.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at A.T. Kearney (Chicago, IL (US)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    In the first round, there will be 2 one-on-one interviews (case interview + behavioral). The final round will have 2 case and behavioral interviews along with a written case before partners (depending on the office). The case interviews were difficult of course, but manageable if you are comfortable with the case interview process; the written case, however, was very, very hard.

    Interview Questions

    • The written case was the most difficult component. You'll be given a bunch of data, and will have an hour to prepare a recommendation before partners who then bombard you with questions that you need to be able to handle deftly.   Answer Question
