Getting Hired Here

  • “Our interview process is not to test preparation of the candidates but to evaluate how they perform when they are at their best. This translates into active personalized coaching and support for every candidate that is interviewing with the firm. In the spirit of developing each other, every candidate whether hired or not hired is called by one of the interviewers with an offer to also share feedback. Many candidates (both hired and not hired) attest that this makes the process so enriching irrespective of the outcome.” 
  • “Interview process is shortened to ensure candidates (campus) receive feedback same day.”
  • “The interview process generally runs very smoothly and candidates will more often than not receive a call with results the night of their interview. The ideal candidate is a strong problem solver that also has strong people skills, though each track will require a different skillset.”
  • “Very responsive and thoughtful in providing feedback. Rapid in response (typically ~1-2 hours after final interview). There is no one ideal candidate--McKinsey actively looks for diversity and strengths in 1-2 areas (not some template that the candidate needs to fit).”
  • “Very thorough and well-structured process, with checks and balances. Ideal candidate is able to marry interpersonal, team and leadership skills with critical, conceptual and analytical thinking and problem solving.”
