    Junior Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (London, England).

    Interview

    Typical McKinsey interview process: PST, two interviews at first round, three partner interviews at final round. All structured with a quick intro, Personal Experience (PEI) and an interviewer-led case study. Be prepared to tell more than one story for the PEI per interview.

    Interview Questions

    • PEI questions examples
      Tell me about:
      1) a challenging situation with a tight deadline,
      2) a situation where you lead a team through a difficult situation,
      3) a situation when you had to change someone's opinion.

      Cases
      Profitability cases hidden in complex background information plus quirky cases based on their pro-bono practice. Helps to prepare by thinking through different problems and trying to arrange them into different logical structures.   Answer Question
