    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (London, England).

    Interview

    3 consecutive 1 hour interviews in one day with no break was demanding but similar to work that can be expected when working for the firm. HR recruitment were at times a little slow to respond and I did have to re-send some emails that just went unanswered. During the interview, I was told it would be 1:1 but then in one of them a partner joined as well that was surprising - but again to be expected in the field of consulting. In all a difficult interview. I was told that I overran the 1 hr timeslot in the first interview due to being slow to solve cases - but we didn't start the interview until 20 minutes in as the interviewer was too busy chatting about his life! Feedback could have been more helpful to let me know where to improve.
