Yes. For me it was phone screening and then two in person rounds. I was applying from outside consulting, not sure if it makes a difference of someone is coming from a different firm.

Same for EM at McKinsey

Same process for anyone joining at associate level, whether experienced or campus hire. Can't talk about EM and above, I am unaware of those processes

Phone Case with McK Alum (30 minutes), 1st Round (2-3 Cases + Behavioral), Final Round (2 Cases + Behavioral). No PST for experienced hires (or whatever it’s called now).

Same for applicants in all industries (e.g., consulting, IB, S&T, corporate strategy).

Hi fishes. Last week I gave interview in Mindtree and got a call from HR on Friday saying that I have cleared my managerial round and that she'll be calling me for further discussion. She then setup a interview and told me that she's taking my photo for further process. She told me that I should be receiving another call but haven't heard back from them.Also not able to get in touch with her. What can I do in such situations. Do they reject candidates after clearing cultural/managerial rounds??

Hi guys, I have a last interview round with a company coming up, and I already know I don’t want to work there (as I’m interviewing with other places I find more exciting). Would you do the last interview and THEN let them know you don’t want it? Or would you tell them before the last round interview? And would you just say you’re interviewing with some other places more aligned to your end-goals?
